Rick Ross On How He Scooped Drake
The Bawse bags Drizzy and Chrisette Michele for a collab...
Rapper Drake to spot a guest feature on new track, Aston Martin Music.
Michele had already worked with Ross in the past so that hook-up was easy, and Drake was sold when he heard the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League-produced instrumental.
He told MTV News US: "She loved the beat. She wrote her lyrics. It took her 10, 15 minutes to cut her vocals. I'm sitting there like, 'Wow. All right, all right.' At that point, I didn't know who was gonna sing the second half. I sent the beat to the homie (Drake). He laced me. Right then, he was ready to jump on his verse. Right then, he was ready to cock and load. I was like, 'I know you finishing your joint.’
"Just give me that half a chorus, and I'ma make it do what it do. He loved the record. I got it back. He laced it at the point. When he heard [the finished version], it was magic. He was like, 'I'm finnin' to go in the studio, Ross. I'ma need to get on that.'"
