(AllHipHop News) Rapper Rick Ross hosted the "Maybach Music Group Take Over" in Trinidad & Tobago over the weekend to promote his forthcoming album God Forgives, I Don't, which is on the way in 2012.
The rapper hit the stage and was happy to reveal that his music empire was expanding and that he was thankful for his recent successes with artists like Wale and Meek Mill.
"I'm proud to be able to say that as a company and as an artist I'm self made," Rick Ross said. "We started from nothing, we started from a basement, we didn't have no big super producers to put us on, or big record labels, we started on the corner with this MMG s**t. I suggest everybody do the same."
