     Rick Ross recently sat down with Billboard to discuss his inspiration for creating his new Maybach Music Group. In the first part of their interview, Ross also talks about why he signed rappers Wale and Meek Mill along with what former models (record labels) inspired him. Continue watching to hear the guys share their own stories of being signed to Rick Ross' new label.

"Building Maybach Music Group, building this empire, of course I was inspired by some of the earlier movements and earlier dudes that came along such as Cash Money [and] Bad Boy Records. To me, when I really think about the greatest era of hip-hop, that was the greatest eras of hip-hop; when I turned on the TV and saw Big, Mase, Junior Mafia, and the Lox. That was the most exciting era of hip-hop. I looked at the No Limit era and saw that camaraderie that they had, that unity, that brotherhood that they shared. I think it spilled over from [their] music," Rick Ross says. (Billboard)
