Rick Ross On His Bromance Time w/ Dr. Dre (Video)

Over the past week, Dre & Ross have been seen together on more than one occasion. Be it the studio or the club celebrating Ross’ birthday. In the above clip, Ross breaks down the Dre’s inspiration & the advice he received.

It was amazing, my brother. We had the opportunity to just first & foremost touch base like bosses. We went out, we had dinner, we just discussed ideas & that led to the studio. The advice he gave me, it’s already affected the way I’ve been in the studio for the last week. So let’s just say he’s full of knowledge & he’s a solid guy. Most unquestionably that’s maybe my biggest hip-hop influence in the game. A lot of times when you sit back & you watchin’ greatness in motion, when I think back to [N.W.A’s] Straight Outta Compton or [Snoop Dogg’s] Doggystyle & I think approximately the smallest things from the skits to the way the records ended to having the opportunity to ask him approximately certain things approximately those classic albums. To just hear the time that was put into it, & the format, it was really priceless knowledge. For him to acknowledge Maybach Music & what I’m doin’ as an artist & a CEO, that was just real inspirational.

Hopefully these two put together a tremendous record for God Forgives, I Don’t.
