Rick Ross’ label had a collective bout of self-reflection recently.
MMG opened up on the subject of their recent dominance in the rap game, and the implications of their success.
The crew stopped by at the Angie Martinez Show, with the aim of publicizing their forthcoming Self-Made Vol. 2, but the conversation quickly moved to MMG’s current success.
“Man, I feel like we the untouchable empire in the game,” MMG CEO, Rick Ross said. “And just seeing what we accomplished in one year, that speaks to what’s gonna come for the next ten. We’re about business.”
Rick Ross was frank when it came to picking his most cherished accomplishment.
”I’ma be honest, I try not to even focus on those moments, because I know there’s so much more for us to do, there’s so much more for us to accomplish after you done studied the greats,” he said.
Wale explained that his motivations were slightly different. The Washington D.C.artist said that competition was a big part of the game for him.
“I look at it differently than them, though. I just feel like, it’s all competition,” he said. “Money, at this point, is like points. If this is all a game, money is points.”
“I already got a record deal,” he added. “I’m not the underdog anymore. I can’t come in here and cry about nobody listening to my song. I walk down the street, I get stopped. So what now? I want points. I’m not as flashy as a lot of dudes, but I want points.”
