Rick Ross on Adele’s ‘Hello’: ‘This may be one of the biggest records in the history of our time’

The MMG founder talks about remixing his favourite Adele track

Rick Ross has spoken about his admiration for Adele.

A few weeks ago the US rapper released his remix of ‘Hello’, Adele’s first track since the Bond theme tune ‘Skyfall’, which came out in 2013.

Talking to Rolling Stone yesterday, Ross said ‘Hello’ was “exceptionally written” and is his favourite Adele song.

“I’ve been a huge fan of hers since ‘21’,” he explained. “I got to miss her voice a bit and when she returned with ‘Hello’ I heard it and I was like ‘Woah, this is powerful, this may be one of the biggest records in the history of our time’.”

Ross’s take on ‘Hello’ is the latest in a recent run of remixes from the MMG artist. He’s also taken on Post Malone’s ‘White Iverson’ and Future’s ‘Dirty Sprite 2’ cut ‘Stick Talk’.

The MMG founder has been making headlines for things other than music recently. He was arrested and denied bail for assault and kidnap offence in June, before he was eventually released from prison after paying a £1.2m bail bond.

In March, Ross was reported as having allegedly stood up actor Bill Murray after the latter offered to collaborate on a new Christmas show he was making for Netflix.
