10. Rick Ross
Rick Ross backed up his boasts this summer by delivering on almost all of his promises. As the leader of Maybach Music Group, he dropped the group’s second album, Self Made Vol 2. He also signed Omarion out of obscurity and he’s shined on every song since. He’s credited with the rise of Gunplay and to top it all off his latest album, God Forgives, I Don’t, debuted at #1 and is now RIAA-certified Gold.
