HipHop x Sports
My good friend Rick Ross’s 6th studio album drops on Tuesday – MasterMind. The album streamed/leaked this week, but today is when you can head to iTunes or target to pick up the disk the proper way. I don’t always support artists… but when I do, it’s the biggest boss. Rozay has, IMO, been one of the most consistent rappers since he came on the scene in 2006 with Port of Miami. Ricky and his MMG team have grown an empire in the rap game and he continues to show why he is the leader of the star-studded group.
Having listened through the album one time, I will say it is not his best. His last 3 albums Deeper Than Rap, Teflon Don, and GFID are such complete/amazing LP’s that it would be hard to live up to the hype that I have for Ross. That being said, albums often grow on me and with how the internet/rap game works nowadays, the release of singles sometimes takes away from the awe of the album when it drops in full.
One of my favorite songs off of MasterMind that has not been widely circulated is Thug Cry with Weezy. Wayne comes through with a dope verse and as per usual, The Boss kills it.
Another nice track that the masses will love is In Vein ft. The Weeknd. Check it after the jumpman.
