It was as if the President himself was in town yesterday when the Maybach Music Group took over New York City for its second compilation album, “Self Made Vol. 2″. After an appearance on BET’s 106 & Park viewers program, a short stint with Funkmaster Flex on radio station HOT 97, and numerous meet & greets in between, Rick Ross along with the rest of the Maybach Music Group made it to ALIFE for the LES institution’s legendary Courtyard Session. Packed with fans, friends, and family, the Teflon Don worked the crowd while each Maybach member took his turn at the mic. Meek Mill had female fans screaming for more, and, not to be outdone, Omarion showed off some of his latest moves on stage. Donning a New York Knicks jersey, Wale showed his set with “Slight Work” among others. But some of the loudest screams were for Stalley, the Ohio native who quickly became a fixture at ALIFE and the Lower East Side scene when he jump-started his music career here. Finally, the “Boss Man” ended the set with “Bag of Money” and walked through the gathered crowd. As for now, “Self Made Vol. 2” is currently available for purchase and download.
