All right, everybody—put all the fake leaks of Rick Ross’ official Magnificent (Remix) aside, because this right here’s the real deal. After watching several supposed remixes hit the ‘net over the last few weeks, the Boss has elected to end all the speculation by releasing the legit version. As for the record itself, well, if you really liked the original, you’ll really like this revamp. J.U.S.T.I.C.E League‘s beat is unchanged, but Ross comes with new lyrics, as well as enlisting Big Boi, Special Ed, and Diddy for guest-verse and ad lib assistance. Special Ed’s middle bars stick close to Ross’ high-rolling blueprint, but Big Boi’s fluid and relaxed rhymes prove a perfect complement to the Maybach general’s gruff flow. Judging by the rave reviews the Deeper Than Rap lead single earned the first time around, this official remix seems destined for success, but I’ll leave it to you, the readers, to decide how it stacks up.
