Voice Behind Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Drop: Model Jessica Gomes

By William E. Ketchum III

Listeners know Rick Ross as the husky voice behind Maybach Music Group’s records, but what about the seductive female voice that namedrops the label before every record? Apparently, that woman is Australian supermodel Jessica Gomes. After tweeting a brief “Maybach Music. Ha,” she confirmed Complex’s reports of her as the voice and responds to other users’ references to her as the “Maybach Music Lady.”

Though her Twitter bio vaguely refers to her as “Ethnically Ambiguous Australian Supermodel,” she’s known in the entertainment industry. She has appeared on the cover of Complex magazine, and in a commercial for Diddy’s fragrance “Unforgivable.” She was also mentioned by name on “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” a song Kanye West dropped during his “G.O.O.D. Fridays” leak series in 2010. “Jessica Gomes y’all, I would damage her,” Kanye rhymed while mentioning other notable models such as Selita Ebanks and Veronica Webb.

Gomes’ resume doesn’t stop within the hip-hop community, though. She has appeared in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue several times, along with the likes of Vogue and Italian GQ and more. She has also modeled for DKNY Jeans, Motorola, Urban Outfitters, LG Electronics and other companies. In May, the Daily Telegraph reported she would appear in Korea’s season of Dancing With The Stars.
