In America, November 11 is a time set aside to honor the brave men and women who have put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms, but the intrepid hustlers who risk, uh, drowning in groupies and champagne to bring us great hip-hop music have gone sadly unrecognized – until now. On Teflon Don inclusion Veteran’s Day (rumored to have been recorded for a now shelved Ross/Birdman collaborative album), Maybach general Rick Ross celebrates the invaluable services he and his fellow ballers have performed for their country. Joining the headliner over a currently-unknown producer’s street-ready, soul-sampled boardwork are highly-decorated officer Lil Wayne and his adoptive father, the former rallying the Cash Money troops on the track’s front end and the latter surveying his worldly possessions in a more laid-back middle verse. So, readers, does Veteran’s Day deserve the DJBooth.net Medal of Honor? If you think so, keep it locked to our front page for release details on Ross’ fourth album, as well as, of course, all the latest tunes.
