Rick Ross reveals his favourite collaboration with Drake

South Florida rapper Rick Ross has collaborated with many MCs over the years. From Lil Wayne and Pusha T to Kanye West and Jay-Z, the lyricist (real name William Roberts II) has made music with the best of the best. However, one of the most prestigious musicians he has worked with is the Canadian singer and rapper Drake.

Drake is one of the most successful rappers of all time, and, aside from his endless amount of Grammys and BET awards, last year, he became the only artist to have sold over 200million album sales as a lead artist. Rick Ross and Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) have collaborated on a number of occasions, and during a recent YouTube livestream with Adin Ross, Roberts reflected on some of his favourites.

Rick Ross and Drake have an extensive personal and collaborative history, with their first track being Ross’ 2010 single ‘Aston Martin Music.’ The Miami emcee was featured on Graham’s debut album with an appearance on the song ‘Lord Knows.’ However, there are a vast array of collaborations.

For this, you could look at iconic Drake songs like ‘Money In The Grave’ or ‘Lemon Pepper Freestyle’. Other collaborations include Ross’ ‘Gold Roses’ and other artists like DJ Khaled’s ‘I’m On One,’ on which they both feature.

When speaking with Adin on a YouTube livestream, the content creator asked Ross to name his favourite collaboration, to which Roberts responded, “I’m a say ‘Stay Schemin.'” He was also quizzed on how he developed a relationship with the Toronto musician. Explaining how it all started, Ross disclosed, “He came out to us; he came out in the streets. He came to us when he put that record together. It was one of those vibes. We had the beat. He walked right in on it as we was puttin’ it together, and he didn’t wait one second, so that was most definitely magical.”

Drake regularly shouts out Rick Ross for social media to see. Last year, he called him his “identical twin” when a fan mixed them up while the Maybach Music Group mogul was in Jamaica.

In 2021, there were rumours that both Drake and Rick Ross were working on a collaborative album. However, the mythical project never surfaced. You can watch Adin Ross’ livestream with the emcee in the video below.
