Rick Ross Talks Wale Signing

Rick Ross says one of his first singees reminds him of Kanye West.

Fans were buzzing when Rick Ross signed Washington, D.C. emcee Wale to his Maybach Music Group. But perhaps no one is as excited as Rick Ross himself.

Speaking to MTV News, Ross explained that Wale reminds him of another emcee - Kanye West.

"After spending months of my summer working with Kanye, I learned and seen so many different visions and ideas come to light," explained Ross. "I was there for 'Flashing Lights,' when it was actually titled another title that me and Kanye went back and forth about. And when I think about Wale, I think about Kanye."

Ross continued the lofty comparison, and said that he sees potential in Wale to reach Kanye's heights.

The Miami rapper added that Wale's next solo album should drop approximately two months after MMG's Self Made compilation.

Ross was recently arrested for marijuana possession, but was released on a misdemeanor summons.
