Recently, Rick Ross sat with brothers, Eric and Jeff Rosenthal, on their podcast, “A Waste of Time”, during his promo run of his new album, Port of Miami 2.
Towards the end of the interview, the brothers wanted to clarify some rumors with Ross, and they asked why he never signed Nipsey Hussle to Maybach Music Group.
During his interview he said, “Really I was young at the time, I had just started going to Cali. I ran into him and I just felt this vision, felt this drive. I knew he was going to be somebody who was gonna live his dreams out. I put the offer on the table for him and another young dude, Dom Kennedy. I wanted to establish MMG on the west coast. I wasn’t coming out there as much, I wasn’t traveling as much and I didn’t have as many connections as I do now. We didn’t close that deal but we stayed in touch… the love was always genuine and it was there.”
