Like many emcees, Rick Ross occasionally refers to his business as the rap game. In the Maybach Music Group capo’s case, however, that expression is a bit misleading; as he emphasizes on the freshly-released lead single off his fifth full-length, his attitude toward his hustle is as serious as a heart attack. Premiered yesterday evening on Funk Flex’s Hot 97 program, No Games finds Rozay talking tough to fakes and phonies over an aggressive beat by frequent collaborators J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. Future provides a bellowed hook. Mastermind has yet to receive a title or a drop date, but we’ll keep you posted on the project as further details emerge.
