Catching Up With Rick Ross
by Mosi Reeves | August 1, 2012
It's been a little more than two years since Rick Ross released his hit album Teflon Don. Yet he's been far from silent, building a massive catalog of over 50 non-album songs in the time between then and his new God Forgives, I Don't. That bounty includes Ross singles that didn't make his latest album, like "You the Boss" with Nicki Minaj and "Stay Schemin'" with Drake and French Montana. He's released two albums with his Maybach Music Group, leading to radio hits like Meek Mill's "Tupac Back" and Wale's "That Way." He's lent his voice to Kanye West's "Monster," DJ Khaled's "Welcome to My Hood" and "I'm on One," Lil Wayne's "John," and Jennifer Hudson's "Think Like a Man." Ross has made so much music that it's nearly impossible to keep up with it all. As a result, our Rick Ross playlist bursts at the seams with nearly three hours of rap and R&B, despite being limited to songs released as singles, not the dozens of album-only cuts and mixtape tracks on which he's appeared. This is a big baller collection, and like everything associated with the self-proclaimed Boss, it's shamelessly excessive and over the top.
