Rick Ross Picks Up Drake and Wale for ‘Ashes’ Re-Release
Rick Ross burned up the Internet with the release of his ‘Ashes to Ashes’ mixtape at the tail end of 2010, and he’s already gearing up for a revamp. The Miami rapper is adding newly recorded collaborations with Drake, Wale and Meek Mill to the tracklist for the mixtape’s re-release.
“I think it’s the beginning of a lot of big things to come,” he told MTV. “So I wanted to give the people something before the year was out … because I have a new album I’m cooking up. … I feel like it’s a new beginning.”
The Drake-assisted single, ‘Made Men,’ which was already released to the Web earlier this month, will make the new tracklist. Ross also enlisted his Maybach Music signees Wale and Mill for ‘Pandemonium,’ where they all take turns rapping over a brassy beat.
“There’s a lot of things that got to go. And this is the beginning of some new things that [will] pop off in music. Some new sounds, some new styles, some new techniques, some new bosses. And that’s what it’s about,” he explained.
Rawse is also working on the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Teflon Don,’ recently revealing that more than half of the album is complete. “50 percent of the album [is] already [done],” he said before dropping the title ‘God Forgives, I Don’t.” The LP should hit stores later this year.
