Rick Ross is “interested” in signing Kanye West
The Floridan rap legend created his label in 2009 when Ross dropped his third studio album ‘Deeper Than Rap’, launching the careers of Wale, Meek Mill, French Montana and more. Recently, he voiced his interest in signing Ye in an Instagram video.
“I just came up with an amazing idea, a boss idea,” Ross said. “This is something extremely realistic to me.”
He continued: “We’ve created amazing masterpieces in the past. The boss, Ricky Rozay, I’m interested in signing Kanye West. Maybach Music. Ye, what’s up? Talk to me. Let’s make history, baby.”

Last week, it was reported that Ye and Dolla $ign are shopping their debut joint album to record labels. Ross offered to distribute any of the Grammy winner’s upcoming projects via MMG.
He said: “I’m a creative. I’m an artist. Imagine if Ye came and allowed MMG to distribute his new project. Imagine that. What’s your favourite Rick Ross-Ye collab? Imagine that. Imagine the artistic drive. And I got some amazing ideas for the Yeezy brand. Let’s speak.”
Kanye West hasn’t replied to Ross at the time of writing.
In other news, Ye and Dolla $ign were reportedly due to hold a private album listening party for their album in Italy earlier this month. However, the event has since been cancelled over safety concerns before it was even announced.
Rick Ross and protégé Meek Mill have a joint album on the way called ‘Too Good To Be True’. They dropped the launch single ‘SHAQ & KOBE’ last month and last week released a second, ‘Lyrical Eazy’.
