There are quite a few things that fans can expect to hear on Maybach Music Group's upcoming Self Made, Vol. 2 compilation album. Chances are we'll hear the infamous "M-M-Maybach Music " drop a number of times, a few of Rick Ross' patented grunts and, according to Wale and Meek Mill, a bit of their respective hometown vibes.
"Me and Wale, we always talk all the time, and I told Wale I actually wanted to do a couple myself on a Philly type of vibe and he wanted to do something on a D.C. type of vibe," Meek told MTV News from the video set for the new MMG single "Bag of Money" featuring T-Pain.
The first Self Made album boasted a number of successful singles like Meek Mill's "I'ma Boss" and Wale's "That Way." Each member of the roster contributes solo songs, while the others pitch in on the feature side. For example, Self Made, Vol. 2's first single, "Bag of Money," is billed as a Wale single, though Meek Mill and MMG boss Rick Ross both contribute. Though Wale and Meek have their own plans to put on for their respective cities, Meek makes note that in the end, Rozay is the glue that brings it all together.
"Ross is always gonna bring a lot to the table with Self Made. I'ma say he's the ringleader of the whole Self Made movement, so we just wanted to bring our parts of the table to it so we make it..." Meek said, taking a moment searching for the right word until Wale pitched in and helped finish the thought. "Have a definitive sound," he added.
The two MCs estimate that they have close to 40 songs already recorded for the compilation and they weren't quite sure which tracks would make the project. They did, however, promise a diverse sound. "You gonna hear D.C., Philly, the South, everything all in one," Meek said. "We just want to give you a part of everything."
