Live in the cipher team brings you Rick Ross aka Rozay latest release God Forgives I Don't. Lets see if Ross can deliver the quality music that he is known to deliver. Maybach Music Group (MMG) has been bringing the heat the past year or so, so lets see if the streak continues.
Artist Review: Rick Ross
Though his past four solo albums have debuted at #1, in the past year Ross’ stock has risen faster than ever. The arrival of his instant-classic mixtape ‘Rich Forever’ – a self-released behemoth that some are calling the best rap of the year thus far – and the constant barrage of new material, features and online content that he and his MMG cohorts flood the streets with daily, has taken Ross to a new level. "We believe that Rick Ross is among the elite; one of the most talented and compelling artists in the industry," said Def Jam Recordings president Joie Manda. "He's done an amazing job of building his brand and image, and together with Def Jam's promotional muscle and marketing savvy, we intend to elevate Ross' stature across the board. It's an exciting time to be in the Rick Ross business."
"There's Jay-Z, Kanye, and Wayne—and Eminem is the king of his own domain," Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson recently told GQ. "And then there's Rick Ross, right on that cusp."
Not content with the cusp, and thoroughly determined to dominate the conversation, Ross has bossed up and partnered with the superstar Usher for his new single “Touch’N You.” Released to radio and online yesterday, the Rico Love-produced banger is the lead single from ‘God Forgives,’ and sets the tone for what will be Ross’ most epic, most ambitious album to date.
“Before I was ever in this position, I promised myself I would never take it for granted,” Ross told the expectant crowd gathered at his Manhattan press conference. “So that’s what I did with this project…it’s my best body of work yet. God Forgives, I Don’t is a very dark story…it’s extremely lyrical. The music is next level. I’m expecting nothing but the biggest results. That’s what’s needed, and I’m going to deliver”
Stay tuned for more on hip-hop’s biggest boss, Rick Ross, and the most-anticipated album of the year…God Forgives, I Don’t.
