As artists from Atlanta and Houston turned their cities into Southern strongholds , Rick Ross put Miami back in the spotlight of national rap with “Hustlin ‘” (2006). The rapper has become not only a figure in hip-hop , but also an unlikely pop star . During this year, he spoke for a long time about his album which due to some constraints was difficult to be released. Following numerous release attempts, the rapper recently released the final version of his album’s production credits.
“Richer Than I Ever Been”, an album that comes with placements from iconic producers
Rick Ross’ eleventh studio album , Richer Than I Ever Been , was released last Friday (December 10). With promotional singles like “Outlawz” with 21 Savage and Jazmine Sullivan, as well as “Little Havana” with The-Dream and Willie Falcon, Ross’s album is full of talent.

While the artists and those whose voices will garner the most praise for their contributions, Richer Than I Ever Been also highlights an impressive group of producers on the album. With legends like Boi-1da, Timbaland, Carnage and more, the project contains a lot of great material.
‘Richer Than I Ever Been’: the rapper sticks to his original formula and obtains satisfactory results
While rappers have always embellished their financial situation in order to bolster their credibility, Ross’s wealth has always seemed legitimate. He regularly validates his status as the “biggest bawse” by promoting luxury cars, jewelry, palatial estates, and corporate ownership. So when he raps “I am more than rich” on the sumptuous and majestic “Marathon”, we are inclined to believe him.
“Made It Out Alive” relies heavily on getting back to normal life before payday. Supported by a hypnotic bassline and Halloween-worthy touches, Ross recounts the harsh realities of disenfranchised people and the consequences of life on the streets by stating, ” Negativity grows like weeds in the flower beds.” bands / The G’s turn into monsters, they take for a thousand years ”.
Moreover, the high level production volume is impressive, the soundscapes are crisp, especially on the menacing “The Pulitzer” and “Wiggle”, the latter turning over the 2003 Juvenile track “In My Life”. Despite this, the absence of JUSTICE League, the production team responsible for creating some of Ross’ greatest hits “Aston Martin Music”, “Sixteen” and the “Maybach Music” series, to name but a few. a few are felt. There’s a sort of glamor and magic that goes with JL’s beat, their high-end musicality often adding a layer of sophistication to Ross’s raw bravado.
There is nothing complex about what Rick Ross does. Sure, he’s a gifted lyricist and a master at choosing beats , but his real talent lies in his innate ability to recognize that the customer is always right , without ever straying too far from what is on him. made him famous initially. While Kanye West’s followers are still awaiting the return of “old Kanye”, Ross constantly embodies “old Rozay”, more often than not obtaining convincing results. Sometimes simplicity is the key: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
