Rick Ross Parts From Slip-N-Slide, “Addresses A Few Things” On New Dis Track
While Miami Boss Rick Ross has been quietly prepping his upcoming album Deeper Than Rap, he promises to stir up some trouble soon when he releases two new tracks in the coming weeks.
MTV News reports that Ross, who has recently split with longtime label Slip-N-Slide Records, will drop his latest disc on his own imprint Maybach Music Group. And with the new direction, the gangsta rapper plans on addressing several situations and people on the song “Mafia Music.”
“It’s a scathing four-and-half-minute nonstop flow, me being autobiographical about my life and my come-up and my triumph,” he told MTV. “Of course, I had to address a few things, I had to address a few people. I love it. The thing is, some people are gonna be — um —they’re gonna be fucked up. That’s the best way I can put it.”
Along with “Mafia Music,” Ross also plans on releasing the his collaboration with John Legend and production team the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League called “I’m The Magnificent.” He says the song illustrates his growth as an artist and “The content is something that’s most definitely something real special.”
Ross’ credibility was famously questioned last year, after The Smoking Gun revealed the rapper’s prior career as a correctional officer. Despite the evidence, including state records, the rapper has continually denied the reports.
Deeper Than Rap is around 85 percent finished according to the Carol City MC and is currently scheduled for an April release date. – Elan Mancini
