In July, Rick Ross announced the signing of former homeless rapper Isa Muhammad to his MMG label after being inspired from seeing a freestyle he spit. Now six months later we have a full project from the California-born artist called Diabolical Bastard Billionaire Genius with 25 bold tracks.
The appeal with Isa seemed to be his raw and unadulterated talent, a skill that Ross saw a vision for and wanted to hone in on.
“This was something that I wasn’t expecting,” Rick Ross said of signing Muhammad back in a July press release. “This kid gave me his heart when he was spitting and the internet got a hold of the video I put up on my snapchat. I wanted to give an opportunity for someone else to be put on – I know so many people in his same position. MMG is about giving back and pushing the culture forward by finding new and real talent. Isa Muhammad will reflect quality rap music and MMG is going to make sure of that.”
