With Maybach Music 2, Rick Ross spun an ‘08 Booth smash into something even bigger; to quote a certain impetuous young track reviewer, “...essentially, it’s like part one, only moreso.” Needless to say, the Booth went bananas. The countless readers who awarded Pt 2 rave reviews will be happy to hear that the rapper’s back with an official remix well worthy of its predecessor’s name. Though it’s hard to beat the original’s Weezy-Yeezy one-two punch, Maybach Music 2.5‘s star-studded lineup elevates it well beyond direct-to-video status. East Coast mainstay Fabolous, Cash Money boss Birdman, and the Clipse‘s Pusha T all hop into Ross’ ride to spit guest verses over J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League‘s sweeping boardwork (retained from the original, along with T-Pain‘s hook), and the headliner even delivers some brand new bars on the back end. A fittingly epic half-quel to a Booth-acclaimed banger, MM2.5 will leave one question on listeners’ lips: will the Boss be able to top himself once again with MM3: Maybach to the Future (okay, it’s apparently going to be called Teflon Don, but I like my idea better)?
