Stereogum’s 25 Most Anticipated Albums For Spring/Summer 2012

HBO's medieval drama Game Of Thrones premieres April 1, and this season's plot involves five different claims to the throne and these respective factions' ongoing clobbering of one another (#TeamRobb). But, yet another mantle is up for grabs, one that involves absolutely nobody getting their head cut off; the claim to "your album of the… More »

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

For a main whose main talent seems to be unbearable self-promotional screaming, DJ Khaled sure has a long history of excellent posse cuts to his credit: "I'm On One," "All I Do Is Win," "We Takin' Over," "Holla At Me." His latest isn't up to the standards of those old songs,… More »

Rick Ross – “Swear To God” Video

Rick Ross has lately been releasing a ton of quickie low-budget videos for tracks from his excellent recent Rich Forever mixtape, and the latest, for the booming "Swear To God," is pretty much just him lip-syncing the song while looming next to a beautiful old-school convertible. It would be nice if… More »

Rick Ross – “High Definition” Video

Rick Ross's "High Definition" is yet another one of Rich Forever's excess-championing bangers, and its video counterpart is stuffed with the requisite flossing you've come to respect from the big fellow and his Maybach Music crew. It's free of the melodrama of "Yella Diamonds," which is either welcome or a huge bummer, depending o… More »

MTV’s 10 Hottest MCs Of 2011

Every year for the past few, MTV has made a big deal out of publishing its list of the year's biggest and most important figures in rap. It's as silly and subjective as any other list, of course, but rappers tend to take the thing seriously, getting very pissy when they don't think they're ranked… More »

Rick Ross – “MMG Untouchable” Video

Just last week, Rick Ross gave us the awesomely awful video for "Yella Diamonds," one of the tracks from his beastly Rich Forever mixtape. Today, we get another one. In director SpliffTV's "MMG Untouchable" video, Ross mostly just poses in a grimy warehouse -- sometimes shirtless, sometimes with a gigantic mixtape. But for… More »

Meek Mill – “Erday (Feat. Rick Ross)”

Meek Mill's follow-up to last years underrated Dream Chasers drops soon, and previously we heard the Cardiak-produced "Lean With It," a sinewy rap track consistent with the street-savvy strengths of Dream Chasers. Another track from the impending released is now on the web, the Rick Ross-assisted "Erday," and, probably thanks to another Cardiak beat,… More »

Rick Ross – “Yella Diamonds” Video

The video for "Yella Diamonds," one of the many bangers on Rick Ross's monstrous Rich Forever mixtape, features some hall-of-fame terrible acting, a genuinely disturbing home-invasion sequence, and an oddly prominent Ms. Pac-Man today. It also has Rick Ross doing some truly great head-shaking while rapping. Watch it below. More »

Weeknd, Rick Ross Comment On Drake/Common Drama

A late entry to our 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011 list was the developing issue between Common and Drake, which may or may not have been based on general jealousy surrounding Serena Williams, of all people. Common started things out, huffing and puffing at Drake on his song "Sweet," and each one… More »

Yo Gotti – “Harder” Video (Feat. Rick Ross)

One of these guys made our current Mixtape Of The Week, the absolutely crushing Rich Forever. The the other made our current Album Of The Week, the pretty good Live From The Kitchen. (Slow week, but still.) And now, they've come together to make a video for "Harder" one of the standout track… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Rick Ross Rich Forever

In the hours after Rick Ross dropped his Rich Forever mixtape on Friday afternoon, my Twitter timeline could talk about nothing else. And it wasn't just that self-selecting sample, either. "#RUH," Ross's trademark triumphant grunt, became an honest-to-god trending topic, as did various other Rich Forever-related word combinations. When Drake lobbed a couple of subliminal… More »

Download Rick Ross Rich Forever Mixtape

A-list rappers don't have to give us free shit, but sometimes they do. And Rick Ross appears to be pulling out the stops on his new Rich Forever mixtape. It features appearances from guys like Drake, Nas, Diddy, French Montana, Pharrell, 2 Chainz, Kelly Rowland, John Legend, and Ross's Maybach Music confederates. The thing went… More »

The 10 Most NSFW Videos Of 2011

Almost none of us are at work this week, so almost none of us are getting fired. And with the holidays coming to an end, we don't have to keep the good-cheer veneer up for much longer. So: Time to wade into some of the past year's sickest shit! When she wrote her listMore »

The 10 Best Rap Guest Verses Of 2011

Even in an era when rappers rarely share studios with their collaborators, emailing in their contributions instead, the art of the guest verse is alive and well. It's still a point of pride for one rapper to swoop in and steal a track's spotlight away from another. And that sense of friendly competition is still… More »

Nas & Rick Ross – “It’s A Tower Heist”

Rap kings Nas and Rick Ross have gotten together to record a song for the soundtrack to the weirdly OK-looking (terrible poster notwithstanding) Brett Ratner movie The Tower Heist. It's called "It's A Tower Heist," and it seems to actually concern stealing things from towers, neither of which is a good sign. But this isn't… More »

Rick Ross, Death From Above 1979, Tanlines @’s One Hanson Place Party, Brooklyn 9/15/11

"How cool is it that Vice got Rick Ross to play their bar mitzvah?" That was one of those trademark Tanlines one-liners (hereby: Tanliners) that Jesse Cohen delivered between songs a couple of hours before the shiniest rapper in the game (hereby: The Gloss Rick Ross) quadrupled the room's charisma quotient for something like te… More »

Meek Mill – “I’ma Boss” (Feat. Rick Ross) Video

Lately, Rick Ross has been signing a blitz of blog-friendly rappers like Wale and Pill to his Maybach Music Group imprint. But at least in the early going, the only guy who hasn't been a total washout is the high-pitched Philly spitter Meek Mill, who's been getting over on the strength of radio-dominating anthems like… More »

Kanye West – “Monster” Video (Final Version)

The gang's all here: Yeezy, Rick, Jay, Harajuku Barbie, dead models hanging from chains… Yikes.

Kanye West – “Monster” Video

The teaser for Kanye West's "Monster" video leaked in early December, and this unfinished version of the whole video showed up online just before New Year's Eve. I don't think either have officially premiered anywhere. The audio goes out of sync on this YouTube'd version, and there's Getty Images logos on some of the… More »
