When we found out Rick Ross gave new MMG recruit Rockie Fresh a diamond encrusted Rolex as a signing bonus, it was sort of surprising. We know that Rozay has given Meek Mill and Wale lavish gifts in recent memory, but how does it make other relatively new crew members like Stalley, Omarion, and Gunplay feel when Rockie Fresh jumps the line and gets a brand new Rolex out of it? How quickly does crew love turn into crew envy?

The success of this edition of MEME ALERT is hinging on the fact that you are a) familiar with some of the most iconic hip-hop albums of the last twenty years, and b) familiar with the work of comedic actor Aziz Ansari. If you’re familiar with both, we think these album covers are really going to hit home for you. Seeing the cover of Self Made Vol. 2 with five Aziz Ansari heads instead of the Maybach Music crew has been the best part of our day so far.
