Rick Ross: My Andre 3000 Collabo Sounds Like "Vintage OutKast"

FUSE TV - Rick Ross: My Andre 3000 Collabo Sounds Like "Vintage OutKast"

Maybach Music boss Rick Ross—whose epic God Forgives, I Don't dropped this week!—tells Fuse how he and OutKast MC/Jimi Hendrix actor Andre 3000 got together over Skype to record their collabo "Sixteen."

"I reached out to Andre 3000," Ross says. "He was actually overseas in Ireland filming the Jimi Hendrix life story. We did a lot of Skyping: He a real super cool dude, real down to earth. When I picked the track for the record I just wanted it to be vintage OutKast music. I feel we got that, and that's the way he felt. We broke all the rules when it came to that record. That's him playing the banjo, that's him doing the background ad-libs, vocals, the whole nine yards. That was definitely the most unique record I've ever recorded."

The Teflon Don also explains the inspiration behind his menacing album title God Forgives, I Don't. "I wanted to approach the [album] title like a film," Ross explains. "I wanted it to be bold. Just from my experience from writing music, [I know] you tend to draw more emotion out of people when you speak of life and death, so I knew I wanted that vibe in the title."

For the full interview—including Ross' thoughts on why Biggie is "the greatest MC of all time"—watch the video above. And take a listen to "Sixteen" below!
