In the interview, Ross explains he met Kanye West in 2002, where a young Kanye was selling “Blueprint-sounding” beats for cheap prices and could have got a beat for $5,000. He also explains his infamous lyric from Kanye West’s “Devil In The New Dress” where he says “had cyphers with Yeezy before his mouth wired”:
We were kicking it. I was spitting my raps, locally. He was playing me his beats and he said ‘Man, you should let me executive produce your album.’ I looked at him like ‘you tripping, man.’
Ross also talked about how he used to make his own mixtape under the name Chill Will in 7th grade rapping over established industry beats. The first record Rick Ross wrote to was the instrumental to Reebie Jackson’s 1984 song “Centipede”. In addition, Ross revealed that he offered Kool G Rap a deal with Maybach Music Group and did three records together in a few hours.
According to Ross, he was also a ghostwriter before his 2006 big hit single “Hustlin'” and worked on Angie Martinez’s unreleased third album that never came out with Cool & Dre.
