When a rap artist becomes successful, a sense of fulfillment —knowing you made it from a run-down hood life to lifestyles of the rich and famous—is sure to kick in. It is important, however, not to let this life-changing sensation cause you to forget where you came from. As an example, just ask Rick Ross and his Triple C’s crew, who remind the listener that they can still be found Ridin’ Thru The Ghetto even though they’re now “worth a million dollars.” Once again, J Rock da Rock Monsta provides banger production, but this time he sings along to Ross’ raps (ala Dre) on the hook to help make Ridin’ Thru The Ghetto something to cruise to—in the obvious setting, of course.
