Rick Ross became the latest hip hop heavyweight invited to a Dr. Dre recording studio session. It's not known what the two worked on, could have been new material for Dre's long-awaited Detox album or it could have been for Ross' upcoming God Forgives, I Don't LP, or both. Whatever the case, the experience was apparently a once in a lifetime opportunity for the Maybach Music Group leader who told MTV that he was inspired by his time with Dre.

"It was amazing, my brother," said Ross. "We had the opportunity to just first and foremost touch base like bosses. We went out, we had dinner, we just discussed ideas and that led to the studio…The advice he gave me, it's already affected the way I've been in the studio for the last week. So let's just say he's full of knowledge and he's a solid guy. Most definitely that's maybe my biggest hip hop influence in the game."

"A lot of times when you sit back and you watchin' greatness in motion, when I think back to [N.W.A's] Straight Outta Compton or [Snoop Dogg's] Doggystyle and I think about the smallest things from the skits to the way the records ended to having the opportunity to ask him about certain things about those classic albums," Rozay continued. "To just hear the time that was put into it, and the format, it was really priceless knowledge. For him to acknowledge Maybach Music and what I'm doin' as an artist and a CEO, that was just real inspirational."

After delaying the release of, God Forgives, I Don't, and easing his busy schedule following his two seizures, Rick Ross released his Rich Forever mixtape last month
