Rick Ross stopped by Drink Champs for an interview and talked about being one of the few rappers in the game who can make music on the spot.
He first spoke about Drake.
"We in the two percentile when it comes to writers and creators. It’s called a two percentile. The two percentile listen. If you not ready for this…. walk out of the room. But the two percentile is when you walk into the room, you hear something, a beat or a production that you actually love and can actually create it, write it, and execute it right then. I can’t say I’ve done that with many artists. It’s not even five artists.” [Jump to the 52:35-mark]
Ross then said Jay-Z is in that 2 percent club as well.
"The reason why I take my hat off to Hov. It was ‘Free Mason.’ We was at [Madison Square Garden]. Hov was on tour," he explained. "I told Hov I’m finna come to your tour and imma just kick it with you. He had no idea I had the production, the beat, the record, the idea. And so I went to the tour. We backstage. It may be 20 minutes before he go and perform."
“So I went backstage, right before he went on stage," Ross went on.‘"Big homie let me play you this beat.’ I’m expecting him to tell me ‘Not right now. Not right now.’ And I tried him, straight up. So I play my verse and the beat from ‘Free Mason.’ He leaning up against the wall before he go on stage. And he just started rapping right there. And what he saying is pertaining to what we talking about. So Hov is a two percenter.”
Any reaction to Rozay's words?
