When you’ve got the entire MMG roster (minus Omarion) appearing on the same cut, you expect a banging, DJ Khaled-esque posse cut, right? Wrong. Instead el generalissimo Rick Ross decides to take things in a completely different direction, showcasing his crew’s lyrical prowess on new release Power Circle. Producer Lee Major lays down a slowly unwinding piano beat that allows Ross to kick off the festivities with a short opening verse/introduction before stepping aside for Gunplay to get aggressive on the mic. From there it’s MMG’s youngest member, Stalley, to really up the lyrical ante, a wordplay driven challenge that Wale is more than able to meet on his verse, and then Philly boss Meek Mill finishes the MMG crew’s offerings with a solid verse of his own. But, as always, it’s the visiting Kendrick Lamar who overshadows the home team, laying down some of the unique flows that have earned him a spot near the top of the emcee food chain. With a change of pace like this I officially don’t know what to expect when MMG’s Self Made Vol. 2 drops, I just know to expect it on June 26.

We tell our children that they can be anything they want if they just work hard and believe in themselves. That, of course, is mostly crap. No matter how hard I work or believe in myself, there just aren’t a lot of NFL...
