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.

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 »

Rick Ross – “Touch’N You” (Feat. Usher)

Rick Ross aims for the radio with the Usher collab “Touch’N You,” a new single from the forthcoming God Forgives, I Don’t. The inclusion of Usher should hint that the track’s reaching for a different vibe than anything included on the gritty, awesome Rich Forever. Nobody strays too far outside their comfort zone on thi… More »

Mary J. Blige – “Why?” Video (Feat. Rick Ross)

“Why?” is the sort of strained-relationship midtempo wailer that Mary J. Blige seems to own the patent on, and it’s weirdly heartening to see that she’s still great at it despite what appears to be a happy married life. The Colin Tilley-directed video, too, is pure vintage MJB. But the real reason to pay attentio… More »

Rick Ross – “Bag Of Money” Video

Rick Ross’s “Bag Of Money” is the first single from Self Made, Vol. 2, his forthcoming Maybach Music compilation, and it’s all about how Ross’s girl looks like a bag of money, which does not actually sound like a good thing for a woman to look like. Ross’s Maybach Music soldiers Wale and Meek Mill… More »

Download Stalley Savage Journey To The American Dream Mixtape

Everyone who’s written about the thoughtful Ohio rap introvert Stalley lately has mentioned that he’s a weird fit for Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group label, where he signed last year, even if he and his new label boss sport matching gigantic beards. And it’s true; the two make an odd fit. But Stalley’s new mixtape… More »

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, but it does collect… 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 Ross put as much… 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 on your… 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 most of… 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, it’… 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 had made… More »
