After Rick Ross held a Hood Billionaire listening session in NYC, it was noted by a few attendees that Ross’ record with Metro Boomin’ sounded like a stand-out. Thanks to HHS87, we get to hear the record. To quite honest, it doesn’t sound different from anything else Ross does with his music. Even Metro’s production doesn’t heighten this collaborative effort. We’ve heard much better chemistry, but if this is considered a record worthy of being the best on the album, then we might be disappointed once it drops. It’s rare in hip-hop that two albums in one year both turn… continue reading
Mastermind, previously slated for release on December 17th, 2013, is in stores this week. It’s Rick Ross’s sixth studio album, and his second in a row to miss a winter release—despite statements over the years by Ross and the MMG twitter account that the Untouchable Maybach Empire does not do push backs. If there’s anything we’ve learned, though, it’s not to doubt Ricky. He isn’t one to disappoint, and Mastermind finds his persona as grandiose and uncompromising as ever.
The wait for Big K.R.I.T.’s sophomore album continues to rage on, but with any luck it’ll get a release date later this year when he’s satisfied with the final product. To pass the time, he decided to give us a week of K.R.I.T. with all kinds of goodies in store. How does seven new songs sound? The idea sounds pretty damn sweet. At one point last year, we got photos of a session between Big K.R.I.T. and Rick Ross and assumed that the soulful producer would be providing Rozay with something amazing for Mastermind. It didn’t end up happening, however… continue reading
As first reported by the The Hollywood Reporter, rapper Rick Ross, along with Jermaine Jackson, half of production duo The Runners, have filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against LMFAO, the LA-based pop duo consisting of Stefan Gordy (Redfoo) and Skyler Gordy (Sky Blu) regarding the group’s chart-topping song “Party Rock Anthem” and the phrase “Everyday I’m shufflin’” which is prominently featured in the tune. “Everyday I’m shufflin’” is a slight twist on Ross’s lyric “Everyday I’m hustlin’”, which was first used on the Miami rapper’s breakthrough hit “Hustlin’” (produced by The Runners) in 2006.
Wooo! Rick Ross is focused and doesn’t care about spacing out his releases. Last night was the first remix, tonight gets us “I Know.” Yo Gotti and Rich Homie Quan’s record gets molded into something for the MMG boss and Duece Poppi (Whole Slab) to play around on. This one is pretty good too. Mastermind, well, you should know at this point. Previously: Rick Ross – Bound 2 (Remix) Follow @SermonsDomain
“You making wack songs with the nice titles/ All change, no rings, never see the finals” Rick Ross and Kanye West have some good chemistry together. Remember “Live Fast, Die Young” and even DJ Khaled’s “Wish You Would”? Despite Rozay not gracing the official album version, he still manages to slide in nicely on “Bound 2,” giving a little over two minutes in rhymes. This is more like that. Mastermind release date still be announced sometime this month. Previously: Rick Ross Ft. Young Breed – My Nigga (Remix) Follow @SermonsDomain
