Rick Ross – Rich Forever (mixtape)


Say what you want about Rick Ross, the man has steadily evolved into a true hip-hop icon. There’s a reason he continues to work with artists like Nas, Raekwon and Kanye. As we patiently wait for his forthcoming commerical release, Rich Forever is the latest mixtape from Maybach Music’s head honcho. Due to recent health issues, the Bawse had to push back his upcoming album, God Forgives, I Don’t. But this tape is more than just a Sorry-4-The-Wait holderover. This ain’t some ol’ bullshit just to keep his name game. This is some quality music that features a slew of guests and production styles, while showcasing a ferocious Ross on the mic. If you’re one of the many who have written him off, give this mixtape a listen. You might feel differently. Highlights include the Nas-assisted “Triple Beam Dreams,” “Keys to the Crib” and the title track, featuring John Legend. If this is a preview of what’s to come from Ricky Ross, we may just finally get the Ready To Die he has been destined to make. Even if it’s not, it’s worth the free download. RUH!!!
