Southern rapper Rick Ross recently discussed assembling his Maybach Music Group and why hip-hop stars like Diddy and Baby ultimately motivated him to create his own movement.
“Building Maybach Music Group, building this empire, of course I was inspired by some of the earlier movements and earlier dudes that came along such as Cash Money [and] Bad Boy Records. To me, when I really think about the greatest era of hip-hop, that was the greatest eras of hip-hop; when I turned on the TV and saw Big, Mase, Junior Mafia, and the Lox.
Ross continued to speak on the mid 90’s as he described it as the most exciting era in Hip-Hop.
“That was the most exciting era of hip-hop. I looked at the No Limit era and saw that camaraderie that they had, that unity, that brotherhood that they shared. I think it spilled over from[their music.”
