You’ve got to hand it to Rick Ross, the man certainly knows how to stay in the news. For the Bawse’s latest headline grabber he puts together what, judging by the names on the marquee alone, has to be considered one of the year’s biggest songs in 3 Kings. Jake One gets the call on the production tip, building an instrumental founded in classic hip-hop but with epic aspirations, giving Dr. Dre a soulful foundation to launch off on his opening verse. Ross follows with a typically Maybach-soaked verse dripping with billionaire aspirations, and then Jay-Z runs the anchor leg, unleashing a verse that should put anyone with aspirations of stealing the “richest rapper alive” throne from him to rest. Love it or hate it, they’‘ll be talking about this one long after the arrival of Ross’ new album, God Forgives, I Don’t, blowing out speakers worldwide now.
