In a groundbreaking revelation on the popular Drink Champs podcast, Rick Ross has asserted his membership in an elite league of musical geniuses alongside Jay-Z and Drake. During the interview, Rozay provided a deep dive into various aspects of his illustrious career, shedding light on his longstanding collaborative bond with Drake and the unique bond shared by these three rap luminaries.
“The camaraderie between me and Drizzy is undeniably strong,” confessed Rick Ross. “Honestly, I can’t even quantify the number of tracks we’ve cooked up together because it’s effortless when we hit the studio. Let me be clear. We belong to the top two percent when it comes to songwriters and creators. It’s what we call the two percentile. Now, if you’re not prepared for this, please excuse yourself. The two percentile represents that extraordinary moment when you walk into a room, listen to a beat or production, instantly fall in love with it, and then proceed to create, write, and execute it on the spot. I can count on one hand the artists with whom I’ve experienced that level of synergy. They don’t even reach five.”
He passionately continued, “Drake resides in the two percentile. And after spending over two decades in this game, I can tell you that when you collaborate with Rozay, not everyone can handle that kind of pressure. When you step into the studio with me, very few individuals feel comfortable enough to absorb a beat, follow my lead, and conjure something truly remarkable right then and there—recording it in the moment and standing by it.”
“Let’s talk about JAY-Z. That’s a man worthy of my utmost respect,” Ross reverently expressed. “It happened during ‘Free Mason.’ We were at Madison Square Garden, and Hov was on tour. I informed him that I would be joining his tour just to hang out. Little did he know that I had the production, beat, lyrics, and concept ready. So I joined him backstage, approximately 20 minutes before his performance. This is the greatest individual in the game, and I’m still hustling, trying to make it big. I wanted that motivation.”
He vividly recounted the pivotal moment, saying, “So there I was, backstage, just before he took the stage. ‘Big homie, let me play you this beat,’ I said. I expected him to respond, ‘Not right now, Rozay. Not right now.’ But I took a chance. I played my verse and the beat from ‘Free Mason.’ He leaned against the wall, getting into the zone before his performance, and he just started spitting rhymes right then and there. His lyrics aligned perfectly with our conversation. That’s when I knew Hov is also a member of the two percent club.”
