MMG released their new compilation album, Self Made 3 September 17. The album debuted at #3 in its first week. Recently, Rick Ross spoke about the significance of the compilation.
"It just feels good to see this come to fruition," Rick Ross said ofSelf Made 3 during a recent interview with New York radio station Power 105.1. "It was just an idea, just a couple of years ago. For all of us, it's just a little alley-oop leading into our own solo projects, our own solo albums that we want to give our people. It's just fun to get together...We believe in putting out that work. That's what keeps us at the top of this game. Compilations, for artists like ourselves, is always a good thing. When you hear these records and you hear the new artists we bringin' to the folds, the new producers, all the different sounds, and it just give everybody a chance to shine in their own light. I love it."
