Rich Forever Rick Ross
January 7, 2012 by staff
Rich Forever Rick Ross, Maybach Music Group mastermind Rick Ross dropped his latest mixtape yesterday and proved once again his sound truly is larger than life. Featuring eighteen bass-heavy tracks, Rich Forever is an early standout in a year that comes with the promise of many great hip hop releases, including an official album release from Ross, and UTG wants to make sure your ears get 2012 started right with the record’s four standout tracks.
Let us be clear, Rich Forever is a terrific mixtape and should be experienced in its entirety by any real music fan. The following list is simply the best of the best (in our staff’s humble opinion) and hopefully offers further insight to the sound of Rick Ross and the world of Maybach Music Group.
The only solo track to make our list, “High Definition” finds Ross addressing his lifestyle, as well as the differences between MMG and the rest of the hip hop world. It has been a second Ross went in like this and it really helps set Rich Forever into motion.
Featuring loads of lower bass and synth waves, “F**k Em” goes a long way to cement the relevancy and lasting power of Maybach Music Group. Ross obviously represents the CEO and sets the bar for his companions, but the contributions of 2 Chainz and Wale cannot be denied. We have been writing for weeks about the impending explosion of 2 Chainz in the new year and this track is the latest evidence of that coming to fruition. Get ready, MMG is going to keep things exciting in 2012.
“Triple Beam Dreams”
As Ross says in the opening moments of this track, “It’s time to take you to the other side homie. The side you gotta watch A&E cable television for homie (but we live this sht).” Joined by Nas, who delivers bars so good you will hit want repeat a dozen times before actually finishing the track, “Triple Beam Dreams” is Ross on his grown man game, addressing life through a much more honest, dark, and sincere scope than his usual ego-driven lines of indulgence. It does not much grittier than this on Rich Forever, and every second is fantastic.
