Yesterday, in a decisive victory over GOP candidate Mitt Romney, Barack Obama was elected to a second term as President on the United States. Ballin’ on the haters just isn’t the same without a suitably fly musical accompaniment, so Rick Ross is thoughtfully providing our Commander in Chief with a little something to blast from the sound system in his Presidential limo. Originally featured in July as a street single off the MMG mogul’s God Forgives, I Don’t LP, Hold Me Back has received the official remix treatment courtesy of Rozay and a formidable lineup of collaborators. Over G5‘s utilitarian trunk-banger of an instrumental, GunPlay, French Montana, Yo Gotti and Lil Wayne taunt their respective competitors in braggadocio-laden guest bars. Is this star-studded revamp worthy of the occasion? Debate away—and, if you haven’t already, cop Ross’ latest LP for the album version of Hold Me Back and much more.
