The musician will have a hard time squeezing in some painting as he is working on his 10th studio album, Port of Miami 2: Born to Kill, and his new VH1 reality music competition, Signed.

“I was never excited to be a part of anything that was a contest, but wow: The amount of talent that was presented to us, that’s what really changed the game, changed my attitude,” Ross said of the series. “It really made me excited because I really felt like we could do something big and different.”
