Label: Maybach Music Group/Warner Bros.
Released: June 26th
The first label crew to roll out their compilation album this year is Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group. Self Made 2 picks up where the first volume left off, showcasing the roster's talent alongside epic guest appearances by Nas, French Montana, T.I., Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, and more. Ross mostly sits in the backseat on this one, allowing Meek Mill and Wale to drive home the point that they do not need to lean on the Bawse.
From already established stars to relative newcomers like Stalley, Gunplay and Omarion (aka "Maybach O"), the crew holds their own. Combining posse cuts (“Power Circle”) with solo records (Omarion's “M.I.A.” and Meek's “Black Magic”) that each display their own individuality, MMG is two for two in winning crew compilations.
