Rick Ross Takes a Stand in “Free Enterprise” Video
It's been nearly a year since Rick Ross dropped his album Black Market but the Bawse revisited the 2015 LP this week (Nov. 9) to drop the music video for "Free Enterprise". In a slo-mo visual directed by Ryan Snyder, Rozay is seen smokin' his cigar and rapping against the backdrop of an America flag. Ross' words and John Legend's chorus are overlaid with a young Black man being stopped and arrested by the police while he's walking with his son. The video closes with prison stats about mass incarceration in America.
"My inner Andre 3000/So many false allegations, is my image tainted/Three weeks in the hole, as if a nigga heinous/As I'm pacing in the cell all this pictures painted/All i wanted was some Belaire and a Danish/Inmates gave me commissary just because I'm famous/Or is it cause' I'm rich and I know what pain is?/Assassinate Trump like I'm Zimmerman/Now accept these words as they came from Eminem," spits Ricky over the DJ Khaled, Tarik Azzouz and StreetRunner beat.
It's ironic that Rozay plays up his patriotism in the visual not only given the fact that the U.S. just finished their 2016 presidential election, but also because he could possibly lose his freedom with with all the legal trouble he's got mounting. And the line about assassinating Donald Trump, who is now set to be the 45th president of the United States, is the main reason Black Market was pulled from sale shelves at Walmart last year. In the video, Donald Trump's name is bleeped out as if were a swear.
The day before the 2016 election, Rozay was spotted down at Florida Memorial University urging his fans at the college to go vote. As news came in late Tuesday night that Trump had won the presidency, Ross remained positive on Twitter for his fans. While he said that Hillary Clinton should've given her concession speech the same night, he told his followers to "remain resilient."
