The Homeless Rapper Rick Ross Signed to MMG, Isa Muhammed, Drops Debut Mixtape

In July of this year, Rick Ross added another rapper to his Maybach Music Group imprint, a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. That rapper was Isa Muhammed, and he didn’t have an impressive underground resumé or a slew of moderate hits as a claim to moderate fame. In fact, his career was non-existent before Ross allowed Muhammed to spit an impromptu freestyle for him on Venice Beach in Muhammed’s native state of California. The impassioned performance impressed Ross, who listened intently as Isa went off for over 2 minutes, and he would soon be signed to MMG in a startlingly cool twist of fate. Today, just 5 months later, Muhammed’s debut MMG project, Diabolical Bastard Billionaire Genius, has been released.

The lengthy project, comprised of a whopping 25 songs featuring Rick Ross, Scrilla, Curren$y and more, is a willful, assertive introduction to Isa Muhammed. From the onset, on tracks like “Black Lives Matter” and “The Code,” Muhammed flaunts his social commentary over well-orchestrated production. (No surprise there, considering he’s Ross’ understudy.) Throughout the project, Muhammed sports the other styles in his repertoire, from the playful “Cloth Talk” to the pensive “God’s Playground.” Despite its length, DBBG provides an impressive amount of standouts.
