New Music: Rick Ross f/ Jay Z – ‘Devil Is a Lie’

The Bawse is closing out 2013 in a big way. The MMG chief reunites with Jay Z on “Devil Is a Lie,” their second collaboration this year following “F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt.” The rap titans trade boastful bars over the horn-heavy instrumental, produced by K.E. on the Track.

King Hov addresses the Illuminati (“Devil want these ni**as hate they own kind/ Gotta be the Illuminati if a ni**a shine”), his Barneys partnership (“Brooklyn all in Barneys like we own it, bitch”), and Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse (“All these ni**as claimin’ king, but I’m still that”).

Rozay’s sixth album Mastermind was originally due December 17, but will now arrive in early 2014.

In addition to Jay Z, he has collaborated with R&B legend Bobby Womack. “I got in the studio with a few people just to do a lot of different things and it’s gonna be some dope shit,” he said of the follow-up to 2012’s God Forgives, I Don’t.

Listen to the music masterminds’ most explosive collaboration yet.
