Nicki Minaj – “I Am Your Leader” (Feat. Rick Ross & Cam’ron) Video

Here's Nicki's new visual for Roman Reloaded highlight "I Am Your Leader," wherein Nicki, Rick Ross and Cam'ron hold down a neon-green-and-pinked-out version of a Looney Tunes setting. Cam'ron's wearing a shirt that changes colors, possibly depending on Cam's mood. Just a guess. Watch it below. More »

DJ Khaled & Kanye West – “I Wish You Would”/”Cold” Video (Feat. Rick Ross & Kim Kardashian)

Hear's the visually impressive combo clip for "I Wish You Would" & "Cold," a six-minute long Hype Williams construction featuring West, Khaled and Rozay holding down an underground tunnel. Real talk, though -- is it better than the fan video with the kid rapping, a la Danny Brown's "Grown Up"/Biggie's "Sky Is The Limit"? Watch… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

A dark week for music videos! For whatever reason, this is the week that everyone's decided to perfect their death-stares and document their shit-smashing capabilities. That applies, in one way or another, to four of the five videos this week, as well as the Norah Jones and Liars videos that just missed this countdown, a… More »

Rick Ross – “911” Video

Earlier this week, Rick Ross released his tough and immediate "Hold Me Back" video, probably the best video of his career. (He doesn't have that many great videos, weirdly.) He's now followed it up with another video for one of the the more feral stomps from his absurdly opulent new album God Forgives, I Don't,… More »

Rick Ross – “Hold Me Back” Video

Here's the video for Rick Ross's "Hold Me Back," a black-and-white visual shot in New Orleans' Calliope Housing Projects and clip that, allegedly, was banned by BET. It's sort of intense, but outside of that, I'm not sure why that might be. On a lighter note, it also features Rozay wearing a hat, which I… More »

Watch Rick Ross On Kimmel, Chelsea Lately

It's God Forgives I Don't week -- read our Premature Evaluation -- and Rozay is making the rounds. Last night, he performed "Touch'N You" and "So Sophisticated" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and also sat in on Chelsea Lately to talk about sex and smoking weed. Watch it all below. More »

Premature Evaluation: Rick Ross God Forgives, I Don’t

When "Rich Forever," the title track from Rick Ross's great early-2012 mixtape, shows up as a bonus track on his new God Forgives, I Don't, one line immediately jumps out: "Your shit pushed back cuz it ain't buzzin'." Ross has never shied away from pot/kettle/black moments, and the world has gotten used to hearing a… More »

Rick Ross – “Diced Pineapples” (Feat. Wale & Drake) & “911”

Here's two more from the imminent God Forgives I Don't, the lavish "Diced Pineapples" and the more hard-hitting "911," a track that would have fit in quite well on Teflon Don. While there's not a Drake verse on "Diced Pineapples" -- he's in singing mode for this one -- Wale reads a lengthy poem at… More »

Rick Ross – “3 Kings” (Feat. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z)

Earlier tonight, Rick Ross dropped the latest single from God Forgives, I Don't -- a release from which we've already heard "Hold Me Back", "So Sophisticated" and "Touch'N You" -- the Dre/Jay-featuring "3 Kings." It's arguably the most anticipated cut of the release; it's either that or "Diced Pineapples," which I don't know anything about,… More »

French Montana – “Pop That” (Feat. Rick Ross, Drake & Lil Wayne) Video

French, Drake, Rozay and Wayne rage poolside in the video for "Pop That." Meek Mill totally goes in on this one -- in the pool, that is! You'll also notice that the Versace scarfs French has been favoring lately are absent, replaced by a much more scene-appropriate pool towel. Watch it below. More »

Rick Ross – “Hold Me Back”

Today, Rick Ross came through with his newest single -- we've already heard God Forgives, I Don't cuts "Touch'N You" and "So Sophisticated" -- and it's a heavy, lurching march of a track. I get the impression that it's going to sound really good in a car. Stream it below. More »

DJ Khaled – “I Wish You Would” (Feat. Kanye West & Rick Ross)

DJ Khaled remains an absolutely ridiculous and indefensible rap-universe presence, but he's still better at rounding up A-listers to perform on songs together than, arguably, anybody else on earth. His latest is "I Wish You Would," an anthemic stomp that features Rick Ross in triumphal boss-mode and Kanye West, returning to his 808s & Heartbreak/"Put… More »

Maybach Music Group – “Power Circle” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar) Video

Here's the clip for Maybach Music Group's nine-minute posse cut "Power Circle," and it's basically a chronicle of day-to-day MMG living. So, a lot of Miami Heat games, a lot of lounging in Ferraris and drop-ins from Usher, Drake, DJ Khaled and more. Watch below. More »

Rick Ross – “So Sophisticated” (Feat. Meek Mill) Video

Here's Rozay's clip for "So Sophisticated," a visual that remains true to the Teflon's Don's favored aesthetic (think randomly occurring fires, Bugattis and opulent feasts). It also doubles as a Ciroc commercial, or if it doesn't, it easily could. I think I just saved somebody's marketing budget. Watch it below. More »

Nas – “Accident Murderers” (Feat. Rick Ross)

Nas and Rozay link up again for Nas's forthcoming Life Is Good, a release from which we've already heard "Daughters," "The Don" and "Nasty." The new joint's called "Accident Murderers," and the beat builds off a church-y organ sample with accents from a choir, a vibe we've been seeing a lot of lately. Stream it… More »

Maybach Music Group – “Power Circle” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

Next month, Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group will release their Self Made 2 compilation, and the album track "Power Circle" features all the rappers currently active in the crew -- Ross, Gunplay, Meek Mill, Wale, Stalley -- as well as on-fire freelance assassin Kendrick Lamar. It is nine minutes long, and it is epic. Liste… More »

French Montana – “Pop That” (Feat. Rick Ross, Drake & Lil Wayne)

French Montana's new single, "Pop That," is the latest rap single that's basically scientifically engineered for Hot 97 dominance, and it certainly goes for broke, feature-wise (Rozay, Drake, and Wayne. Yow). It rides icy-sounding, Lex Luger-esque production and the lyrical content fixates on strip clubs, as you had probably surmised from a glance at the… More »

Rick Ross – “So Sophisticated” (Feat. Meek Mill)

Just a week after Rozay dropped the Usher-featuring first single from the forthcoming God Forgives, I Don’t, he's back with the second single, "So Sophisticated." It features recent Mixtape Of The Week recipient Meek Mill, and it's a strong, bravado-heavy street clap right in both rappers' wheelhouse. Stream it below. More »

DJ Khaled – “Take It To The Head” Video (Feat. Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown)

He may not have any readily identifiable talents, but oft-bellowing Miami personality DJ Khaled sure is good at convincing vast numbers of rap celebrities to show up in the same room at the same time. In the video for his sparkling single "Take It To The Head," the roll call is typically vast: Rick Ross,… More »
