Rick Ross and MMG Cover XXL

It looks like Ricky Rozay and his MMG boys are taking the cover of XXL next month.

Rick Ross, who’s had an tremendous 2011 with landing a land deal with Warner Bros., adding Meek Mill, Pill and Wale to his roster, releasing their album Self Made Vol. 1 and gearing up for his new album God Forgives, I Don’t, talk about taking over Hip-Hop and becoming king of the rap game.

“I’m enjoying my last few moments at No. 2,” says Ross.

“It’s like I’m watching the No. 1 man on stage, my legs crossed, I’m smoking big, hollering at the bitches in the crowd. And this album gonna do it. I got the formula.”

XXL also spoke with MMG’s newest members about signing with Ross’ imprint:

“I think it’s a plus that everybody got their own fan base, they got their own thing rocking in their own city, and they got their own representation of what they stand for,” Pill says.

“So when everyone comes together, that’s all the fan bases combined.

“It’s a blessing to be able to rock with a bunch of different guys that are passionate about the craft and that know where they going and actually can foresee the future, when it comes to their music.

“I think that gives us a stronghold and a bit of longevity. And kind of an advantage also.”

The October issue, which hits newstands on September 20th, also features J. Cole, Game and Odd Future.
