Maybach Music Group, Self Made 2

This album lacked the big records of last year's predecessor ("I'ma Boss," "Tupac Back"), and Omarion is a downgrade from Teedra Moses. But it once again showcased Rick Ross and friends in their wheelhouse, spitting grandiose rap fantasies over massive beats. The Maybach boss has an undeniable vision, and a talented team of artists and producers who know how to make it reality.
