Of all the rappers who were preparing to stuff your MP3 player this holiday season, did you expect Rick Ross to start giving away freebies? No? Well if The Source’s Man of the Year has any say, he’ll be climbing down chimneys with more of his Maybach Music for stocking stuffers. Ross has his Christmas mixtape Ashes to Ashes dropping on December 24, and on the tape’s first leak, 9 Piece, the Teflon Don sticks to his newfound niche: some menacing yet repetitive production from Lex Luger and a guest verse from someone with actual street cred. That guest? T.I., who delivers his standard hard-yet-too-cool styled verse while Ross dabbles in his usual lyrical assortment of hard to believe lines. Ross drops these so called gems like Santa dropping Christmas presents: “I’m sellin’ dope, straight off the iPhone.” “I’m double platinum just like my Ferarri!” (knowing full well that none of his albums have gone platinum). Oh well, if Ross can make “gangsta rap” fun in 2010 then who am I to play Grinch? Ashes to Ashes drops on Christmas Eve - happy holidays.
