Rick Ross Previews New Wale Album at Samsung's Hope For Children 2013

  • For the second year in a row, What's Trending streamed live from the Samsung Hope For Children gala blue carpet, where we teamed up with Samsung to fulfill their commitment to causes that help children discover the wonder of life, learning, and our planet.

    At the star-studded event, Shira Lazar talks with hip hop's Ricky Rozay about tweeting mid-interviews, and why children's charities are more important to him, now that he's a family man. He's not shy about revealing his sensitive side when it comes to helping out the children, but, "In the studio, I'm the boss," he says.

    Ross teases, "We actually just put the finishing touches on Grammy nominee Wale's new album," which hits stores June 25. "I'm extremely excited," Ross says of having the young rapper on the Maybach Music label. "I just think it's great music for the culture."

    As the music industry is evolving, Ross also reserves praise for some of his other favorite up-and-coming rappers, like Kendrick Lamar. "I feel it's all about the older guys such as myself to keep giving them that direction."

    He also takes the time offer advice for aspiring music artists. "It's all about believing in yourself. Start with your own neighborhood, your block, your friends, your best friends, start online," he says. "And just don't stop. That's the key. Never quitting, never giving up."
