Nearly thirteen years ago, Rick Ross was just another struggling rapper in a city without much recognition in the hip-hop game. The Carol City, Florida native knew his day would eventually come, but until he latched on with Slip-N-Slide just a few years ago, the answers on his magic 8-Ball didn’t provide very optimistic answers. Nonetheless, after years of under appreciated talent on Suave House Records, the now-popular industry giant is a literal force to be reckoned with in the game. Though it isn’t an official single off his latest album, Trilla, Ross has remixed a song that epitomized his current status: This is the Life. Hopping on board the Blac Elvis-produced cut are Shawty Lo, Flo Rida, Brisco, Birdman, and Ross’ Triple C’s group members. No disagreement from us; it does sound like fun!
Note: The streaming of “This Is The Life (Remix)” has temporarily been suspended.
