Hustlin' (Explicit, Single)
by Rick Ross
Released: Jun 2006
Label: Slip 'N Slide / Island Def Jam
Miami's Rick Ross is as real as it gets. He's owed "a hundred favors" by Noriega ("the real Noriega," Ross assures us), lashes out at Jose Canseco ("he's snitchin' cuz he's finished") and has friends who "have a hundred bodies." When he declares, "I cut 'em wide, I cut 'em long, I cut 'em fat," we don't think he's talking about the cheese. It's all "b*tches and business," and the track's ominous organ drone only intensifies the menace of the lyrics.
