Rick Ross Announces New Album, ‘Rather You Than Me’

Categories NEWSPosted on


Rick Ross certainly isn’t playing around with 2017. As the American Music Awards was getting underway, Rozay — via his sweatshirt, worn during a performance alongside DJ Khaled — announced his ninth album to be titled Rather You Than Me. You can check out a quick clip supporting the forthcoming release below.

Rick Ross Feat. 2 Chainz & Gucci Mane – Buy Back The Block

Categories HIP-HOP/SPOKEN WORD, MUSICPosted on


Rick Ross has been (somewhat silently) keeping his releases consistent as of late, even without any mention of an upcoming album. Here’s his latest: the very dope ‘Buy Back The Black’, which sees the Miami representative linking with Atlanta peers 2 Chainz and Gucci Mane.

Check that out below; we wouldn’t be surprised if Rozay let go of a new mixtape by 2017…

Rick Ross Responds To Tax Situation, Drops ‘Free Enterprise’ Visual

Categories NEWS, VIDEOPosted on


Rick Ross isn’t about to let recent news on his tax troubles get out of hand. The MMG boss bawse released an official statement speaking on the issue, revealing that his (new) accounting team are aware of the issue and it’s under control:

I’ve been fortunate enough to experience financial success on a large scale through both my music career and my many business ventures. With this type of financial success comes financial responsibility. As artists we are blessed to be able to make money, but on the same note, are held accountable for our federal tax obligations just like everyone else. I am fully aware of my current dealings with the IRS. This issue arose from an incorrect filing by a prior accountant for the 2012 tax year. My new team of accountants have corrected the prior filing, and as anyone who has dealt with the IRS understands, it is a process. We have already satisfied a large portion of these issues and I can assure you that we are working very closely with the IRS to bring a full resolution shortly and will continue moving forward in a positive direction!

Fair enough. That’s not it, either: in lieu of America’s unfortunate election results, Rozay also decided to drop a new visual for ‘Free Enterprise’, which features John Legend. Interestingly enough, there was a line that called for the assassination of Donald Trump (“…assassinate Trump like I’m Zimmerman…now accept these words as they came from Eminem”) which was censored and explained by Ross in a recent interview with Rolling Stone:

I would never advocate violence on Trump or anyone. It’s lyrical assassination… That’s me being a poet, putting words together in my art form, with no violence in my heart at all. Clarify that. Matter of fact, my cameraman was Trump’s caddy at his golf course for five years, and he says Trump is cool as f***.

Boy…a lot of these rich Americans sure do forget to pay their government often. Rick Ross is the latest, as TMZ is reporting that Uncle Sam is asking for $5.7 million (£4.6 million) in back taxes from 2012 to 2014. Most of that is from 2012 for $4.6 million (£3.7 million).

Naturally, longtime enemy 50 Cent (who’s been dealing with money matters of his own) couldn’t wait to comment on the development:

#50Cent stepped into #TheShadeRoom being petty

Rick Ross Said He Squashed Meek Mill/The Game Beef; The Game’s Manager Says Otherwise

Categories NEWSPosted on

@richforever says he had a conversation with @losangelesconfidential to end beef! #Hiphop #thegame #meekmills #dc4 #1992

A video posted by fameolous.com (@fameolousent) on

Fans of Rick Ross’ Snapchat recently saw the Maybach Music head honcho claiming that he was able to end the active beef between The Game and Meek Mill, shouting out both artist’s new music during the announcement (above). Dope, right?

Well, according to The Game’s manager Wack (who’s really becoming a troublemaker as of late), not only is Rick Ross incorrect, but he needs to worry about his own problems instead:

Oops! #TheGame's manager says the beef between #Game and #MeekMill isn't squashed!

DJ Khaled Feat. Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Future, August Alsina & Jeremih – Do You Mind (Video)

Categories VIDEOPosted on

For his latest visual, DJ Khaled picks the Major Key mega-posse cut ‘Do You Mind’, which features assistance from Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Future, August Alsina and Jeremih. In the clip (which sees appearances from all collaborators, remarkably), the We The Best boss stresses over a relationship while trying to win more…and it’s as amazing/unintentionally-hilarious as his previous efforts.

Enjoy the visual for ‘Do You Mind’ above.

Tory Lanez Feat. Rick Ross – Super Freaky

Tory Lanez is back with a new banger titled ‘Super Freaky’, an obvious ode to the late Rick James that features assistance from Rick Ross. The track also sees production from Play Piscasso, Reazy Renegade and Lanez himself.

Check it out below; if you haven’t yet (which is probably unlikely), check out Lanez’ new album I Told You here.

Skrillex & Rick Ross – Purple Lamborghini

Categories HIP-HOP/SPOKEN WORD, MUSICPosted on

Here’s an unlikely (?) combination: Skrillex and Rick Ross team up for the hard-hitting ‘Purple Lamborghini’, which — if anything — certain earns Skrillex additional respect as a multi-genre producer (not that he isn’t already proven in that aspect). The braggadocios track is the latest to be taken from the forthcoming Suicide Squad film and soundtrack (released 5th August; pre-order via iTunes).
