The first taste of the Ross & Meek collaboration is “SHAQ & KOBE,” an aptly titled gripping, and powerful ode to a relationship between a mentor and his protégé, with a reconciled bond of brothers. The song’s cinematic video showcases how both have given their blood sweat and tears to their artistry and how that has paid off. The natural interplay between them musically and visually maximizes their potency and influence.

Rick Ross defines a lifestyle, a mindset, and a culture. The GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum superstar, two-time New York Times-Bestselling author, and business magnate makes everything feel “rich,” eclipsing material wealth and hinting at a much more substantive spirit. Throughout a remarkable career, he literally went from “Hustlin” to visiting President Barack Obama at the White House and occupying spots on the New York Times bestseller list.

In the wake of his platinum-selling 2006 classic debut, “Port of Miami,” Roiss has notched nine GRAMMY® Award nominations, scored streams in the billions, picked up dozens of multi-platinum certifications, and logged five #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200. Adding to the series, “Port of Miami II” saw him topple the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart at #1 for the fourth time and the Top Rap Albums Chart at #1 for the third time.
