Rick Ross: 'i'm Scared To Feel Like I Made It'
Providing everything goes as planned on Wednesday, Maybach Music boss Rick Ross is set to get his fourth no.1 album with ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ on the Billboard album chart. This would make any rapper feel as though they had made it to the top, but not Rozay…
"Man I'm gonna be honest, I'm scared to feel like I made it," Ross told MTV RapFix host Sway Calloway when he appeared on the show. "Am I wealthy? Yes... [but] there's a lot more we can do."
"Even with the success I have and the things I have accomplished, I still don't feel like I'm an Eric B or Rakim yet," the rapper said. "As long as I keep that mindset and that inspiration still there, I can keep getting better. Thinking any other way, I think it may scare me."
On his tracks, Rick Ross has no issue with letting his fans know that he is the boss. On ‘Pirates’, a track from ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ Rozay even compares himself to two of the most highly rated rappers of all time, rapping: "Homicide stay on my mind, Christopher Wallace of my time/ R.I.P. to the legend, Tupac Shakur with a nine."
Although Rozay is not scared to remind fans who the Boss is in his tracks, the MMG boss is far more modest off the stage. Rozay claims that with his new album, he has simply tried to achieve artistic growth: "It'll just most definitely open some more eyes, go above and beyond anything my day-one supporters could imagine," he said. "That's the energy I'll be looking for, that's the response I'll be looking for."
