Last year, Rick Ross made a play at Wiz Khalifa, but eventually he signed with Atlantic Records. Defeated, Rick Ross used this as motivation and added several new talents to his Maybach Music label. Among the 2011 talent signed to the label is Atlanta rapper, Pill, and DJ Scream.
While Rick Ross has signed many artists, many have questioned why. Signing an abundant amount of artists can sometimes be a bad thing. Rick Ross said the first thing he looks at is the work ethic of the artist. Many have credited Ross for having one of the best work ethics in the game.
Rick Ross promised all the new Maybach Music artists have a strong work ethic. Wale, who previously was signed with Interscope Records, has been steadily working hard. Rick Ross has a distribution deal established with Warner Bros. Records and Maybach Music will be releasing a number of new albums before the end of this year.
Among the new Maybach Music releases will be God Forgives, I Don’t. Early this year, Rick Ross announced his new album, saying it would be out before the end of this year. Not much news has been released about the album, but everyone around Ross has hailed it as a classic. Rick Ross, himself, said he has been number two in the rap game for a while. However, after he releases this album, he will be the number one rapper in the game.
Speaking on the title of the album, Rick Ross said the title is fitting. While the title represents his real feelings, the emGod Forgives, I Don’t /emalbum does not have a release date.
