Rick Ross and 1500 Or Nothin Band Announce AXS Concert

Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross is taking his concert experience up a notch. At a one-off Aug. 14 show at Club Nokia at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, Ross will be backed by 1500 or Nothin, an 8-piece L.A.-based band known for producing and touring with The Game, Lupe Fiasco, T.I., Faith Evans, Snoop Dogg and Nas. The concert will be broadcast live at 12 a.m. EST on Mark Cuban’s recently launched AXS TV cable network.

In addition to the band, a spokesperson has confirmed that French Montana, Wale, Meek Mill and Teedra Moses will make appearances. Ross will perform hits from his catalogue as he preps the release of his sixth studio album Mastermind later this year.

“It’s never been done like this,” Ross said in a statement. “We’ll be performing everything from
“Tears of Joy” to “Aston Martin Music,” all with a live band. It’s time to remind everyone what Maybach Music is all about.”

Concert tickets are available at AXS.com. Check out video from rehearsals below.
