Rick Ross Speaks on Working With Just Blaze, Self Made, Vol. 2
Rick Ross has quite a few projects in the works. Along with his fifth solo album, God Forgives, I Don’t, which is set to drop in December, the self-proclaimed “biggest Bawse,” says he may release a new mixtape in the coming weeks and has plans to release another Maybach Music compilation before the years end.
During a conference call held this afternoon, the Miami rap giant called his forthcoming CD his “biggest album” to-date. But before he unleashes the disc to the masses, he revealed that he’s “open to a mixtape.” If fans remember, before releasing last year’s gold certified LP, Teflon Don, Rozay put out his critically acclaimed free disc, The Albert Anastasia EP.
In addition, he said he is already planning on dropping a follow up to last May’s Self Made, Vol. 1. It’s coming “sooner than you think,” he said.
Ross also shared that he recorded several songs with superproducer Just Blaze, who was behind the boards for the MC’s latest song, “I Love My Bitches.” When asked why he recruited the New Jersey-bred beatsmith for God Forgives, Rozay replied, “I just want to tap back into that ’90s vintage hip-hop sound… put a spin to it, and bring that back.”
God Forgives, I Don’t is set to hit stores on December 13. —Steven Jones
