Rick Ross Calls Working With Dr. Dre "Amazing"

Ricky Rozay says that their time in the studio together affected his work ethic.

Rick Ross and Dr. Dre recently kicked it in Miami, Florida, with the former tweeting a picture of the two in the studio with DJ Khaled. While he wouldn’t reveal what they were working on, Ricky Rozay explained to MTV News how the meeting transpired.

“It was amazing, my brother," he said.  "We had the opportunity to just first and foremost touch base like bosses. We went out, we had dinner, we just discussed ideas and that led to the studio."

He also touched on the advice that Dr. Dre gave him and how it’s influenced his studio ethic. Ross even went so far as to brand him his biggest influence in Hip Hop.

"The advice he gave me, it's already affected the way I've been in the studio for the last week," he said. "So let's just say he's full of knowledge and he's a solid guy. Most definitely that's maybe my biggest hip-hop influence in the game."

    Detox is coming slowly

    I got lots of respect for Dre but why is he even near this Rick Ross dude? Ross is a joke, only reason anyone knows him is because of that faggit beef he had with 50 And to all those saying fuck Dre and bigging up 2pac, please read the interview where 2pac himself said that Dre was his hero, so that would make him your favorite rapper's favorite rapper

  • the man

    no one takes officer ricky seriously. u cant win a beef when u cant even crack 200k. def jam done invested plenty of money in this fool & i know they are not happy with there returns. he could get dropped. rick ross had no songs in the billboard hot 100. even lloyd banks BBB got to number #49. you cant compare to 50 cent. many people may say that 50 isnt making hot music anymore. all that has happen is that he is in a comfortable position financial so maybe the hunger in music isnt there anymore. but you cant deny the quality of 50 early work. if someone gave me a officer ricky cd the best use of it would be as a coaster for my soda. lol

    Let's be real. Only women d!(% ride and take sides on beefs that's has nothing to do with them. So if your calling Ross a cop, or 50 a monkey, ask yourself this question: What has either of them ever done for me financially?......If none of these artist ever paid a bill for u or cop'd u a burger off a mcdonalds dollar menu, then u being an internet soldier for someone u don't know is a waste of time and energy. Take a shot of goose and get some p_$%y.

      ^dude above me just made dumb ass comment. you cant compare sports to music. the entire concept of sports revolves around supporting teams. because they go head to head by nature. but music isnt meant to be listened to based on loyalty. Nobody will call you a traitor for listening to 2 artists that dont agree with eachother. music is meant to be enjoyed collectively. there's no point system or music superbowl. grow up bitch nigga. like anon said, any idiot who listens to music selectively especially on some "beef" shit is straight up bitch made.

    I don't care what you'll say in the last twenty five years there has not been anybody more influential than the NWA camp.Dr Dre is as big of influence as the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder,etc. Tupac,Snoop,50,Mack 10,Eminem, Bone Thugs N Harmony,DOC,some of the greatest to ever do it in hip hop and with Eminem/Tupac the number 1&2 selling artists in hip hop history all of them Dr/Dre &NWA Camp descendants.PAY HOMAGE YOU YOUNG GED FUCKS!

  • Yes, I AM WHITE--MOTHERFUCKER

    How can he live with a stomach like that ? And why the hell would Dre work with Officer Ricky when there's a beef between Ricky and 50. Officer 'Rose' also has dissed Eminem. So I'm just wondering... What the fuck is Dre doing with him ? Dre, shoot yourself. I've lost all my respect for you due Detox, stupid statements, fake producing & working with RANDOMS.

      Ross did not diss Eminem, he just wanted to get his attention... and even if he did, why would Em give two fucks, this ain't some warring families shit

    A couple years ago he was a monkey, but now he is his big influence 50 hold his ass for years, now that's how Dre thanks him I only hope that eminem will never do this kind of shit That's how fucked up rap game is nowadays And no, I ain't old, I just don't understand how this fake lames are relevant Fed up with that bubble gum rap without any lyrical content and those stupid clothes I like to party but I also like to hear something that I can relate to For those who are fans of YM and Rick Ross, I guarantee that you'll feel so ashamed for supporting this bullshit in your early days When you'll reach you're 20's, you'll understand what I mean

    first off dr.dre is 50s boss. the reason 50 even sold as much as he did was because of dr.dre. without dre em and 50 would be shiit. 50s biting the hand that feeds him. dissing everybody thats why nobody in the game wants to fuck wit him besides him having mediocre wak lyrics. best producers in the game work with the best musicians. right now ross is the best rapper in the game. 50 is garbage big 10 was wak. nobodys checking for gunit anymore gunit been dead. when the last time u heard a 50 song on the radio or somebody just playing a 50 cent song????

    It's crazy all the money Dre made off 50, he couldn't stay loyal over outside business...50 was the last Dre artist to blow, after him they all been duds that never dropped any material.... Dre sound used to be exclusive but now he's working with everybody.. not a good look

    Here's the advice he gave him ..."stop making music, work out alot, wear tight fitting clothes, have other people write your raps, and hire people to make your beats...then put your name on it". Also, find some clunky headphones, put your name on those and charge people 300 dollars for them. Its the road to the riches" Dre is a lame and apparently only produces "advice" for people these days. Why don't they give him a talk show so he can tell people how being lazy and outsourcing music can make you rich.

      The fact that all his producers bounced and his tracks have been OKAY at best , helps me realize how much of a fucking faggot ass nigga Dre is . Look how fruity and steriod'd up that nigga look in that picture . Even with Dre beats or who ever did the beat for Dre - Ross will NEVER be platinum because he talks about the same shit and he is a fat lying dieabetic sezuire having C.O wanna be drug lord . Dre is just as much of bitch than Sean Combs . He a bitch in the fact that if he saw Suge in the restuarant while hi and ross was eating that pussy would've made a emergency exit . This faggot ain't about loyalty. I remember that one nigga socked him up on tv and Gunit came to his aid . What he do ???? He gave them nigga throw aways . Only hot track he gave 50 was in the club and Scott Stortch did that . Fuck Dre I. Hope he dies from a steriod overdose and I hope them two fat muppet baby wanna be boss dies two!

  • JustKeepinIt100

    I got love for Dre and i enjoy some of Rick Ross' music but it's quite obvious that Dre and Iovine is doing this to fuck with 50 because of the headphone thing. It caused a riff within the camp. It's that old Hollywood way of doing it. It's like you breaking up with your girl and now all of a sudden you posting pictures of yourself and her enemy all cuddly and shit. This is also why Slim Da Mobster is trying to start some shit with 50. I'm not a big 50 fan but they still doing him on some real Hollywood bitch shit with that.

    • JustKeepinIt100

      Yeah i'm not a fan of Slim Da Mobster either but you have to use some common sense in his situation. You think he's just some hungry artist who happened to get signed with Dre? C'mon it's obviously some business/street politics involved in his situation since Freeway Rick is his uncle or whatever. It's the same situation as Jeezy and so many other rappers. People got to remember the rap game have been infiltrated and connected to the streets forever so that's why certain rappers make it and alot don't and also why your favorite rapper sometimes does songs with people you'd never expect them to do joints with. It's all business and politics. Slim just seems like your run of the mill "i'm super tough and i had millions prior to the rap game" type of dude so nobody will buy into his music, except the people who are obsessed with nothing but the image of a rapper.

      you're dumb as hell because he didn't diss eminem, he said after he "killed" 50's career (which he didn't), he wanted to move on to someone bigger and more fun to beef with, after Eminem didn't take the bait, Ross started saying he wanted to work with him. It was just a way to try and get Em's attention.
