Rick Ross Focused on Money; Working With J. Lo and Akon
As his career continues to move full throttle, the last thing on Rick Ross' mind is beefing with other rappers. Although his recent track 'King Boss' -- a believed diss record aimed at Slim Thug -- begs to differ, the Miami rapper insists his focus is his money, not his music rivals.
"It's 2010 going on 2011 and if it ain't about brown money bags I can't even acknowledge it," Ross told The BoomBox. "I don't even know how to do that no more, I did that. Its just about showing dudes how to really come up and stay on top of Forbes baby."
The Maybach Music CEO and self-appointed "king of bosses" has lots to brag about these days. His fourth release 'Teflon Don' debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts and continues its strong hold on hip-hop by way of the single 'BMF (Big Money Fast)' and 'Aston Martin Music' -- for which he is scheduled to shoot a video for next week. "It feels good you know? It feels good to see 'Teflon Don' be accepted by the streets. That let me know we're doing the right thing. I'm back in the studio cooking up. I just did another record or two on Puffy's album. I'm on J. Lo's new single, T.I's new single, Akon's new single, T-Pain's new single -- how many more you need?" Ross' collabo with J. Lo, 'Run the World,' leaked to the Internet this week and can be heard here.
Equally important to Ross is running his label and making sure that his artists are in the position to make it big. "Everybody that's signed to me get put in a position to earn the Maybach ain't nobody gonna give you nothing baby. I don't want nobody to give me nothing."
