In December of 2010, Virginia’s Audra the Rapper also announced she would be joining the Maybach Music Group roster. Ross re-released his latest mixtape, Ashes to Ashes, to celebrate the occasion. The updated edition of the mixtape features the single “Man Men,” which features Drake as well as the single “Pandemonium,” featuring the latest Maybach Music Group members Wale and Meek Mill.
