In less than two weeks, Rick Ross will drop his eighth album Black Market. After linking with Nas on “One of Us,” he liberates yet another song off the album. On “Crocodile Python,” Rozay raps about mo’ money, mo’ problems—he laments about being monitored (“They wanna own everything I own, they send drones to survey my home”), his legal woes (“Everytime I turn around, lawsuits put a lien on a king crown”), and even considers moving out of the country (“Renounce my citizenship and move to Singapore”).
Black Market includes appearances from Future, John Legend, CeeLo Green, Mariah Carey, and Mary J. Blige. “Black Market is the purest representation of me at my most comfortable form,” he told the AP. “The music is soulful and layered. It’s sophisticated, but it’s street.”
Before it drops on Dec. 4, he will release his Renzel Remixes mixtape on Thanksgiving Day, consisting of new and previously-released freestyles.
