Rick Ross' steady rise in hip hop to (arguably) the best rapper in the game has been interesting to witness. After his Teflon Don album last summer he quickly rose through the ranks and became the most sought after rapper since Lil Wayne was in his prime and for good reason too. Every remix, every song he was featured on he would murder. Luckily, he had his own imprint Maybach Music Group to bring along for the ride. With the signing of Wale, Meek Mill, Pill & Teedra Moses (along with Audra Tha Rapper & Stalley) in the course of a few months he had dramatically improved the talent on the roster.

That's not to say that Triple C's were wack though it's just that MMG needed an injection of new energy. With all the excitement over the new additions, Rick Ross decided to drop a compilation to celebrate and named the new signees Self Made.

*I'm assuming that Self Made is a group of Pill, Wale, Meek Mill & Rick Ross much like Triple C's is Young Breed, Torch & GunPlay.*

The album is well put together and is one of the best label showcases in quite a while (as opposed to the Young Money, Grand Hustle & Shady Records compilations of the past few years). One reason for that is that each member is a fully capable solo artist so it's never a case of IF they will go hard...it's who will go the hardest. Sometimes it's Wale....other times its Meek Mill....other times its Pill. They also sound highly inspired and extremely hungry.

Another trait of the group is how well their styles mesh with each other. Teedra Moses has been underrated since her classic Complex Simplicity in 2004 and it's absolutely great that she now will have the platform she deserves. Plus her "hood" R&B style is a perfect match.

There comes a time when every rapper decides to start their own record label. That record label is usually followed by a compilation album. Jay-Z (Roc-a-Fella), 50 Cent (G-Unit) Lil' Wayne (Young Money) & Eminem (Shady Records) are just a few rappers turned entrepreneurs who had low to moderate success. Now Rick Ross has now joined this list with his Maybach Music Group debut album "Self Made Vol 1".

Maybach Music Group consist mainly of Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Wale, Pill & the lost and almost forgotten songstress Teedra Moses. The song "Self Made" is a good introduction to all 6 artist each throwing their best jabs over a Just Blaze beat. A number of songs follow the same pattern of banging beats and a Rick Ross hook. "Pacman" w/Pill is a banger, the rest like "Fitted Cap" are boring. I don't know the purpose of "Tupac's Back" w/Meek Mill & Ross. And "By Any Means" w/Wale, Meek Mill & Ross makes no sense. The album jumps back in line with "That Way" w/Wale, Ross & Jeremih. The album's best track is "Pandemonium" w/Meek Mill, Ross & Wale. But then the album jumps back into skip zone with "Ridin On Dat Pole" w/Pill. The one thing I noticed is that Wale is at his best. He shines all through this album. His wordplay has improved greatly. He uses this album as his own personal resume as he separates himself from the mid level rappers.

When I first sampled "Self Made Vol 1" I thought this was the perfect summer album. The bass heavy beats with Rick Ross hooks and two up and coming rappers (Meek Mill & Wale) had me thinking this was the rap album of the year. But once I listened to it straight through, the same thing that had my attention also turned me away. The beats start to sound the same, Ross's hooks get annoying and only one of the 2 up & coming rappers holding his own.

Hmm, I was expecting some hot songs to make me wanna whine my hipps off and grind to the espressive terms of the rappers yet, it was just way too much flossing and no content or should I say too much temper for me. I guess i need to make my search more specific to my needs.

I really enjoyed this CD. It's been a long time since I had a CD where all but maybe 2 songs didn't have my head rocking. Usually it's only 2 on a CD I like. So go get it it's a great CD. You will enjoy if you like Hip Hop and Rap!!!!!!

Usually when an artist reaches a sucessful point in their career, they take time out to put together a group, while at the same time put some new people out. Rick Ross is at that point with great record sales and high publicity, why not put out a group album? (despite the Triple C's album a few years ago). Given that Ross isn't the best person when it comes to the lyrics, but what I like about him his how he keeps his music interesting. Over the years I had to let him grow on me, and is now at the point where I can listen to him in moderate doses as long as he puts out hot songs like "Maybach Music 2", and "Luxury Tax". Maybe it's because the songs I named has more than one guest appearance on, which makes me think that I prefer listening to Ross when he's not on a solo song. With that being said, Ross recruited three other rappers, Pill, Meek Mill, and Wale (and a background singer Teedra Moses) to his new group Maybach Music Group (MMG). The very first thing I noticed looking on the back cover is this is more of a compilation album rather than a group album. Seeing the songs that has one artist featuring another artist within the group has me thinking that these are a bunch of individual tracks that were put together and showcased a group album. Not necessarily a bad thing but it just seems kind of strange when you see something like Meek Mill featuring Rick Ross, instead of featuring an outside artist.

On to the music, the majority of is real nice. I believe Wale is the best out of everyone in the group with Meek Mill coming in a distant second. Wale shines on most tracks, mainly with "Rise" and "Runnin Rebels". Meek Mill does his job on the upbeat "Ima Boss".
