Rick Ross pulled off a major feat recently by getting both Jay Z and Dr. Dre on a track with him. Just getting one on a track with you is a big feat itself and speaks directly to the caliber of rapper you are.
On his most recent trip to Washington D.C. Ross told MTV that 3 Kings is ”the biggest collaboration in hip-hop.” ever. ”I got on the phone with Dre and we just talkin’ about collaborating and he was gonna come down to Miami for the first time to record with me in my element, in my zone,” Rozay said of the initial seed that was planted for “3 Kings.”
The Boss talked Dre into coming to Miami for his birthday.. The first night there Ross was excited and the two turned out 5 tracks together in the studio.
“He came to Miami. I walked in the studio, I seen big homey, I turnt up,” Ross recalled. “First night in the studio we went and did five records.”
With his Dr. Dre sessions already in the can, Ross called his big homey at Def Jam, Jay Z to ask him to put the finishing touches on the record.
“Jay-Z, that’s my big homey man and from day one anything I’ve ever asked O.G. for he always came through for me, so it’s vice-versa,” he said. “He got a gangsta right here for life.” ”Three Kings” will appear on Ross’ upcoming God Forgives, I Don’t album. Unknown to many this is not the first song Jay appeared on with Ross.
“Me and Jay had another record already recorded,” Ricky confirmed. “I’m pretty sure I’m one of the only people that could’ve called for another verse, before I put out the other record and get it done. I called him and let him know, ‘Man it’s the one.’
“We cooked up a masterpiece,” he continued. “This is a big joint right here.”
I would have expected Lil Wayne to pull something off like this.. The boss’s has remarkable skills in making enjoyable rap songs. It was just a few years ago when it was learned that Ross was a correctional officer who made up his drug dealing past.. Fellow rapper 50 Cent attempted to Ja Rule Ross and it seemed like it was going to work at first. One thing they always tell you is to keep putting out good work and people will be forced to love you.
Rick Ross is a prime exemplification of someone who has built a sold career out of pure talent. It’s nice to see Hip Hop working together to put out good music instead of unnecessary beefing.
