Drake – “Hold On, We’re Going Home (Rick Ross Remix)” Video

Time for another part of our ongoing series “Rick Ross Raps Well On New Wave Songs That Should Not Be Able To Comfortably Accommodate Rick Ross Verses.” Earlier this week, Ross rapped over Lorde’s “Royals,” which is practically an anti-Rick Ross song. He’s also done his money-talk free-association over Drake’s chiffon synthpop slow-jam “Hold On,More »

Lorde – “Royals (Rozay Remix)”

Is Rick Ross just contractually obligated to rap on any song that mentions Maybachs in the lyrics? Lorde’s massive left-field smash “Royals” is pretty much the opposite of everything Ross is about, lyrically; it’s a song about how the aspirational money-talk lyrics on so many rap songs are vastly different from the experiences of most… More »

Drake (Feat. Rick Ross) – “Hold On, We’re Going Home (MMG Remix)”

Hold On, We’re Going Home,” the endlessly pillowy, Majid Jordan-assisted New Wave jam that carried Drake to Top 40 success, yielded one awesomely ridiculous music video and placed highly on our absurdly large Drake songs countdown, now has a Maybach Music Group remix featuring a verse from Rick Ross in pole position. And I gotta… More »

Rick Ross – “No Games” (Feat. Future) Video

The Future collab “No Games” is the most triumphant and visceral Rick Ross single in a long minute, so it’s mystifying that he decided to make the laziest imaginable video for it. The clip is entirely made up of footage of Ross rapping contemplatively in a hotel room, intercut with footage from Scarface, the most… More »

Gunplay – “Gallardo” (Feat. Rick Ross & Yo Gotti) Video (NSFW)

Gunplay is one of the greatest headknock rappers currently walking the face of the earth, and he’s also a part of one of rap’s most popular crews. And yet the closest he’ll come to a mainstream breakout moment might be this deeply NSFW strip-club video with Rick Ross and Memphis knucklehead Yo Gotti. Whatever, I’ll… More »

Rick Ross – “No Games” (Feat. Future)

It’s always a bit disconcerting to watch a star like Rick Ross flopping around, trying to find the right first single to launch an album. His new Mastermind is supposed to arrive soon, but “I Wonder Why” didn’t click the way he must’ve hoped. Maybe the new “No Games” will. Either way, though, the track… More »

Rick Ross – “I Wonder Why”

It’s been a while since we had a certifiable Rick Ross monster of a banger. I don’t know if his new single “I Wonder Why” is that song, but the orchestral churn of the track suggests as much, as does the absolute disdain in Ross’s voice when he says the word “selfies” on the intro. More »

DJ Khaled – “No New Friends” (Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne, & Rick Ross) Video

DJ Khaled’s new posse cut single “No New Friends” reconstructs the lineup of Khaled’s great 2011 single “I’m On One,” and like that song, it’s pretty much a Drake track with a couple of guests on it. Drake also co-directed the new “No New Friends” video along with Colin Tilley, and the clip takes place… More »

DJ Khaled – “No New Friends” (Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne & Rick Ross)

Once upon a time, DJ Khaled stumbled into taking credit for one of the best singles of 2011, when his name appeared on the left side of the hyphen on “I’m On One,” the excellently twinkly and moody Drake/Lil Wayne/Rick Ross team-up. Khaled’s new single “No New Friends” is a transparent attempt to recapture that… More »

Stream The Spring Breakers Soundtrack

After the video for Trinidad James’s “All Gold Everything (Remix)” was released, Tom took to the Twitterverse to assist him in uncovering the identity of the “dreadlocked crustpunk-looking dude standing next to Young Jeezy.” The guy in the video is rapper White from Jeezy’s label CTE. We know this because the person who gave Tom… More »

Rick Ross – “Ashamed” Video

Usually, I can watch a rap video without being reduced to a puddle of jealousy from all the trappings of wealth. But fucking hell, Rick Ross gets to play with a tiger cub? (That’s a tiger cub, right?) How much money does it cost to hang out with a tiger cub? What decisions can I… More »

Pusha T – “Millions” Video (Feat. Rick Ross)

Clipse rapper Pusha T recruited Rick Ross for “Millions,” the lead single from his Wrath Of Caine mixtape, and now both guys are here to rap animatedly in the song’s video. You’ll never believe this, but the clip is full of drug-dealer iconography: Guns, expensive cars, beautiful but duplicitous girls, police raids. You can tell… More »

Pusha T – “Millions” (Feat. Rick Ross)

Clipse rapper and resident G.O.O.D. Music hardass Pusha T is getting ready to release his new Wrath Of Caine mixtape, and the first song we’ve heard from it is “Millions,” a dark and heavy banger with a hard-trudging beat from Southside and Rico Beats. Pusha remains solid and durable as ever, but big-name guest Rick… More »

DJ Khaled – “I Did It For My Dawgs” (Feat. Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ace Hood & Jadakiss) Video

DJ Khaled might not have too many talents in this world, but he’s better than just about anyone else at lining up hard-as-fuck rappers for overblown, triumphal posse cuts like this one. Songs like this have gotten a bit more exciting since Meek Mill’s rise to fame, and videos like this have gotten a bit… More »

Rick Ross – “100 Black Coffins”

I don’t generally write about my freelancing side-hustles on Stereogum, but this one sort of fits. Weirdest experience my entire 2012 came a couple of months ago, when Men’s Health flew me up to Montreal to talk to Jamie Foxx, who turned out to be seriously personable and charismatic in conversation. He was feeding me… More »

Meek Mill – “Lay Up Remix” (Feat. Rick Ross, Jay-Z & Trey Songz)

Last month, Philly rap energy-bomb released his very good album Dreams & Nightmares. Before the album dropped, Meek had mentioned that Jay-Z had contributed a verse. But Jay, possibly unhappy with his own work, ended up not appearing on the album, though he did record a verse — and a pretty good one! — for… More »

French Montana – “Marble Floors” (Feat. Rick Ross, Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz)

Earlier this year, French Montana scored a pretty big summer jam by rounding up half of rap’s A-list for the horny posse cut “Pop That.” And now he’s once again rounded everyone up — with 2 Chainz ably filling in for Drake — with the low-key but catchy Mike Will-produced creeper “Marble Floors.” Hear it… More »

Rick Ross – “Hold Me Back Remix” (Feat. Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana & Lil Wayne)

I don’t know why this had to be an election-night thing, but Rick Ross decided to, I don’t know, celebrate I guess, by releasing a remix of his face-stomping anthem “Hold Me Back” that co-stars the all-star face-stomping team of Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana, and Lil Wayne. It sounds like using your head to… More »

Rick Ross – “Diced Pineapples” (Feat. Drake & Wale) Video

In between the “Pop That” video and Lonely Island’s “I’m On A Boat” comes Rozay’s new clip for God Forgives I Don’t cut “Diced Pineapples.” Director X directs. Watch it below. More »

Download Rick Ross The Black Bar Mitzvah Mixtape

Rick Ross surprised everyone by announcing he’d be putting out a new mixtape — his second this year, the first being the excellent Mixtape Of The Week honoree Rich Forever — but none of us were quite prepared for the title/tape cover combo that Black Bar Mitzvah boasts. Scanning the track list reveals features from… More »
