New Music: Rick Ross – ‘Babies Cry’

Rick Ross has been on a new music tear lately—first came his Black Dollar mixtape a few weeks ago, and then he dropped a new song called “Work” last Tuesday. Now he’s back with another one called “Babies Cry.” Over a lush, soul-sampling beat from Ben Billions, he reflects on his recent brush with the law—”three kidnapping charges,” he raps, adding that he’s “balling while out on bond.”

He also reminisces about getting high—”my first time was ’95″—and offers his condolences to every “life lost to violence” he’s witnessed.
