With the first movie from Maybach Films set for release early next year, Miami rapper Rick Ross says his latest business feat will be a game changer. The Maybach Music Group founder spoke on Maybach Films during a recent interview with DJ Skee.
Ross didn’t share too many details on the company’s first film, but did reveal that they’re currently putting final touches on the movie and plan to begin filming before the year is up.
“We just finished writing our first film,” he said. “We’ll be giving you a lot more details about it real soon. But yeah, we just putting the final touches on this movie, which we plan on filming before the year is out. So, you can expect it early next year. I think this gon’ be a game changer. Huge. I think we gonna change the game and I think it’s gonna be real dope. You know? So, it’s gonna take the team to that next level.”
Later in the interview, Ross stressed the importance of being able to provide fans with both an audio and visual project. According to the rapper, an artist should be able to paint a picture with a record, and pairing it with a visual helps in painting that picture.
“Just as much as I love music I always felt visual was more powerful,” Ross said. “It’s nothing more powerful than seeing it. It’s a different vibe. And that’s what I always brought to the team. You know what I mean? That’s what I wanted to see. So, if I released a mixtape, I wanted to be in a position to say ‘I’m shooting videos to every song on my mixtape.’ Because I felt like as an artist that’s what you should want anyway. If you putting a record on your project you should want to paint that picture. And make sure everybody understands what it was. And that’s what I put myself in position to do.”
Prior to his conversation with DJ Skee, Rick Ross spoke briefly on Maybach Films during an interview with Columbus, Ohio radio station Power 107.5 last month and had this to say about his latest endeavor: “It’s something I’m really looking forward to doing.”
