G.O.O.D. Music rappers make surprise appearance to perform "Sanctified" with Rozay.

The Arsenio Hall Show is racking up big guest names, left and right.

One day after Prince's hourlong takeover gave Hall's late-night resurgence a 50 percent ratings bump, Rick Ross added two huge guests to his own set Thursday night (March 6). Kanye West and Big Sean hit the stage alongside Rozay to deliver their guest bars on the Mastermind track "Sanctified."  

The surprise performance drove the unsuspecting crowd wild, especially once Yeezy showed up. After Hall introduces "the Boss Ross" and "some very special friends," Sean opens with his verse, and about a minute-and-a half into the performance 'Ye jumps in. Ross makes his appearance towards the end and gives a shout-out to his band 1500 or Nothin' playing in the background.

Hall's show is the second late-night performance Ross made his way to this week. The 38-year-old Bawse hit up Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday (March 5), in addition to a stop by Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, MTV's RapFix Live and a live interview for journalist Elliott Wilson's CRWN series. In the two-part discussion with Wilson, Ross touches on building Maybach Music Group, the new album, his past job as a corrections officer (he also opened up about the subject with RapFix), and covering Notorious B.I.G.'s "You're Nobody (Until Somebody Kills You)" track.

Ross's version features French Montana and his own spin on Biggie's classic cut. "I always felt B.I.G. was the greatest ever, and you know I would never attempt to fill the big homie's shoes, but we gotta keep our legends alive," he said. "So when I touched on the 'Nobody' record that we touched on, that's most definitely what I was thinking, just 'rest in peace to the greatest' and let me do my thing on it and let's see what it feels like."
