Rick Ross Touts “RossFit” Workout Method, Says “Fuck Bruce Springsteen” In Funny Or Die Video

I don’t know if the world is ready for a self-aware Rick Ross, but it’s happening. He’s out here making Funny Or Die videos now. Or at least he’s made one. It’s a fake fitness commercial for RossFit, because Ross has recently lost some weight and also because “Ross” rhymes with “Cross.” Also of note:… More »

Pharrell headlined Odd Future’s annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles over the weekend, and a couple notable things happened during his set.

Rick Ross – “Nickel Rock” (Feat. Lil Boosie) & “Elvis Presley Blvd. (Remix)”

Rick Ross apparently still intends to release his new album Hood Billionaire before this month is over, and his new track “Nickel Rock” is a crack-dealing anthem that unites him with the Baton Rouge energy-bomb Lil Boosie. The song is decent enough, but Boosie just murders his verse, as he’s murdered every verse he’s done… More »

Rick Ross – “Keep Doin’ That (Rich Bitch)” (Feat. R. Kelly) Video

Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire comes out next month, and it’s his second album of the year following Mastermind, which came out back in March. A few weeks back, he shared “Keep Doin’ That (Rich Bitch),” a track from the upcoming album that features the despicable R. Kelly. Now, he’s put out a video for the… More »

Project Pat – “Imma Get Me Sum” (Feat. Rick Ross & Juicy J)

Rick Ross got the Memphis knucklehead-rap legend and longtime Three 6 Mafia affiliate Project Pat to show up on “Elvis Presley Blvd.,” his recent street single. And now Ross has repaid the favor, contributing a verse to “Imma Get Me Sum,” the first single from Pat’s forthcoming Cheez N Dope 3 mixtape. Pat’s brother Juicy… More »

Rick Ross – “Keep Doin’ That” (Feat. R. Kelly)

Around this time last year, the entire music world backed away slowly from R. Kelly after his old sex-crimes accusations reentered the conversation. He was on a Lady Gaga single, and that single disappeared so quickly that your head might’ve spun. But Rick Ross didn’t get the memo. Or maybe he just doesn’t care. Either… More »

Rick Ross – “Elvis Presley Blvd.” (Feat. Project Pat) Video

Rick Ross already released one album this year, the orchestrally grandiose Mastermind, and now he’s planning on following it up with a new album called Hood Billionaire before the end of 2014. First single “Elvis Presley Blvd.” works as an extended homage to Memphis rap and features a verse from Memphis original Project Pat, who… More »

The Game – “Don’t Shoot” (Feat. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh, & TGT)

That list of rappers and musicians up top is an all-star team and they’ve all gotten together for the 6-minute anthem “Don’t Shoot” to address the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown and the events that followed. The Game recruited everyone that appears on the song, and here’s what he had to say to RollingMore »

Rick Ross Hops On That Terrible Ed Sheeran Song

Though Chris hasn’t expressed much admiration for Ed Sheeran over in the Week In Pop, maybe the guy’s not all bad? I mean, he co-wrote that Jessie Ware song, and we all agreed that was the best song of last week. Looks like there’s still plenty of bad to go around, though: Rick Ross contribute… More »

Jeezy – “Beautiful” (Feat. The Game & Rick Ross)

Atlanta’s formerly-young Jeezy has built up a durable 10-year catalog mostly by rapping about the triumphs and stresses of the drug trade over tense, gothic, monolithic production. But on “Beautiful,” a song from his forthcoming album Seen It All, he goes a different direction, rapping about getting used to the idea that you’re living well,… More »

Rick Ross – “What A Shame” (Feat. French Montana) Video

Lord only knows why Rick Ross felt like he had to release two music videos in two days for songs from a months-old album, but that’s where we are right now. First up was the sunny, money-soaked “Supreme” clip. And now Eif Rivera has directed a grimly goofy crime-movie video for “What A Shame,” the… More »

Rick Ross – “Supreme” Video

“Supreme” is one of the most sweeping, luxurious tracks on Rick Ross’ excessively sweeping and luxurious 2014 album Mastermind, and its new video practically drips with luxury-rap signifiers. Sports cars! Way-too-big swimming pools! Expensive alcohol spilled on the ground! Florida sunshine! Meek Mill cameos, and Ross smiles in this one more than he usually does. More »

Detroit Rapper Trick Trick’s Mob Reportedly Blocks Rick Ross From Playing Detroit

The Detroit rapper Trick Trick might not be a household name outside his hometown, but he’s infamous for busting heads at least as much as he is for rapping, and he’s rumored to have robbed more than a few rappers who have come through his hometown. The latest victim of his ire appears to be… More »

Rick Ross – “Thug Cry” (Feat. Lil Wayne) Video

Rick Ross’s “Thug Cry” is a mellow, meditative song from Ross’s not-great new album Mastermind, and its new video, from longtime Ross associate DRE Films, intercuts footage of Ross and Wayne rapping with a larger story. Wood Harris, best known as Avon Barksdale on The Wire, plays a convict just getting out of prison, and… More »

DJ Khaled – “They Don’t Love You No More” (Feat. Jay Z, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana)

DJ Khaled has been an A-list rap fixture for the better part of a decade, even though he doesn’t really do anything except yell. I have no idea how he keeps lining up big stars for his songs, but he keeps doing it, and now he’s done it again. “They Don’t Love You No More”… More »

Rick Ross – “Rich Is Gangsta” Video

Rick Ross is often on a mission to prove not only the magnitude of his richness but just how fantastic it is to have said magnitude of richness. In his new video for “Rich Is Gangsta,” we start off with an image of the Eiffel Tower before we’re treated to scenes of Ross decked out… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Last week, in this space, I lamented that fact that, Gwar, who built a low-budget DIY empire partly because of their music video aesthetic, had left barely a trace of influence on the many, many music videos coming out today. I may have been spoken out of school there. Because this week’s video, which come… More »

LeBron James – “Fuckwithmeyouknoigotit (Freestyle)”

Back in the mid-aughts, hip-hop mixtape culture was driven by MCs aiming to one-up each other by freestyling (or “freestyling”) on other people’s beats. Lil Wayne was the king of this particular conceit, and his effortless genius inspired seemingly every professional basketball player of note to drop some bars over a hit rap instrumental.
