With Deeper Than Rap‘s April 21st release date fast approaching, it goes without saying that Rick Ross is one busy man. Since the Boss was tied up with a video shoot in sunny Colombia this week, he wasn’t able step inside the Booth for an exclusive interview—next week, however, may be a possibility, so keep your fingers crossed. In the meantime, fans are sure to enjoy All I Really Want, the newly-released follow-up to lead single Magnificent. The-Dream‘s soulful rendition of the song’s title, backed by a single sitar note, at the very start may lead listeners to expect a fairly by-the-book ladies’ jam, but that first impression will only last, oh, about two seconds—then Tricky Stewart‘s twitchy, propulsive rhythm section kicks in and, after a false start, Ross spits one of the best opening couplets I’ve heard in a while: “She graduated from the School of Arts/ Now she’s swimming in a pool of sharks.” Dream’s glittering harmonies on the hook are just icing on, well, a delicious pile of icing that’s sure to leave fans even hungrier for the main course.
