Ross and Khaled have a longstanding relationship. The level of mutual respect between the two is incredibly high, and Ross shed some light on how Khaled is able to make so many connections in the space he’s in: “You’re authentic.

Also reflecting on his earlier start, prior to becoming a worldwide sensation, Wayne looked back to his Hot Boy$ days. He details his noted shift in perspective, saying “I was way too young to understand the size of what it could be. When I was twelve, eleven, I saw no further than the city. The world didn’t matter to me.”

Wiz Khalifa, the youngest of the group and understandably the latest to reach stardom, sung his praises to the artists present. They all influenced him in some form or fashion. “I’m a product of all of y’all. Your mixtape era, you going crazy, you figuring out who the fuck Rick Ross is right at the time when you turned into the Boss.
