New Music: Rick Ross – ‘I Wonder Why’

Rick Ross grapples with fame and fortune on his dark new track “I Wonder Why.” The Maybach Music boss cries out over the ominous beat, produced by Beat Billionaire, and references the Trayvon Martin trial.

“Now I’m being followed by some creepy ass cracker/ Stand your ground, stand your ground/ Stand your ground, you gotta stand your ground,” he raps.

The MMG Self Made 3 compilation arrives September 17, while his sixth album Mastermind is due later this year. “It’s most definitely going to be a soulful record, it’s most definitely going to be a vintage feel,” he told Rikki Martinez on Power 106.

Rozay was recently in the studio with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and will perform a special concert from L.A.’s Club Nokia on August 14 with the 1500 or Nothin band.
