MMMMMMAAYYYYYYBACH – MUSIC !!!
RICKY-ROSS “THE BOSS” just released his NEW Album called PORT OF MIAMI 2 this past FRIDAY. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE It, if you haven’t heard it fully “ THEN WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” Seriously, go tune in or you’re missing out on HIP-HOP EXCELLENCE! Give this man a damn Grammy-MATERIAL so we really need the Grammy’s , BET, AMA , even MVA Academy to sit back & really listen & lend a Ear…so the nominations and Winners are as accurate as the fanbase and digital streams.
Press Play on the brief #5 Track Playlist I created below…#Top5 out of 12 #Faves
Definitely make sure you play the Spotify Track List as seen midway below, #LetItRide
While I’m on the topic – Yes, his lyrics do have a decent amount of foul language or profanity rather, (in his songs) but he also has some powerful, uplifting & factual lyrics too – so #REMEMBER that part when you Analyze All Rap Artist’s which is never fair. Clearly he’s a Hip-Hop Artist from the streets what do you expect? As people grow they learn and get wiser and switch things up, but for the time being most of us Rap Music fans are just happy that Ross is alive to tell his story lyrically.
Not to mention Rick Ross pretty damn intelligent, he owns numerous businesses and investments, while he also knows the market & demographics of Hip Hop and the music industry as a whole. To understand the present and future you must know the history of anything, and last time that I checked….Hip-Hop Music was not born to be a ” soft-nursery rhyme,” and I mean that respectfully. However, No way would I play track #3 “Nobody’s favorite” for my Grandma, niece or nephews for that matter, common sense says there is a time and a place for everything, but I would play track 11, 14 & 15 though!
One thing is for sure, that is the Music specifically Hip Hop / Rap Genre is a big part of our Culture not just black but my generation and younger, if you notice Hip Hop has #JESTIFICATED the overall music charts, including the Rock /Pop Genre. After all, you wouldn’t change a Picasso or Van Gogh painting (or how bout Gianni Versace signature silk designs and patterns? Absolutely not, so maybe just take a moment to listen the his story, while bouncing to the beat of his symphonic melodies and deep soothing voice, not only musically, but listen mentally, physically & spiritually feel his trials & tribulations .
ALBUM OF THE YEAR ALREADY.
TRACK #2 TURNPIKE IKE is litty and the beat starts out and ends reminiscent of an old school Case song “touch me, tease me” but its clearly different …lyrically killin it, while giving shout outs on the track.
ROSS does touch base on some controversial or sensitive issues for the Hip-Hop Urban Music world such as Kanye and R Kelly, but those are his thoughts and he was vocal enough to lay em on the track, so it is what it is …but I’m not here to talk about that. So Let’S GET BACK TO THIS ALBUM REVIEW, MOST IMPORTANTLY.
TRACK #1: ACT A FOOL feat anotha fave WALE is sick! “Yea, That Boy a FOOOOOOL”
SONG: NOBODY’S FAVORITE is a great hit featuring the great GUNPLAY #EPIC
Best Ross Lyric on the Track…. “ MY NEW HOUSE IS ON THE RIVER, MY NEW HOUSE IS ON THE RIVER” Ding- Ding- Ding -MY NEW HOUSE IS ON THE RIVER, MY NEW HOUSE IS ON THE RIVER……… SO I HAD TO BUY BOAT, BETTER YET IT’s CALLED A YACHT ……..”
Guess whos back! Ros’e with all of his signature Mmmmmmay-bach Music and Huh, Grunts…let’s talk about Artist taglines, he has created one of my ultimate faves.
Oh Mannnn, then there is this track “ BOGUS CHARMS “ featuring MEEK MILL, just like old times -I LOVE THIS ONE TOO...and The background vocals, electric guitar on the beat . Ross Kills it with FACTS, followed with Meek killin it as always!
Also remember, just last year he was near death, which he mentions in one of his songs, sorry I’m still listening to the album as I’m typing this blog entry (bobbin my head) because the sh*tz str8 fire! From his unique sound that we all love, to the beats.
A GREAT SLOW-JAM 4 Lovers Lane: SUMMER REIGN is the ultimate bring it back to the 90’s track with that “RAIN DOWN ON ME” SWV feel.
If you know me, then- you know I am all about the beats on a track, the lyrics are what bring it, but the beat and musical instrumentals are the sound that usually catch me. I can tell that he has been #nonstop in the studio.
While I can also see that he has utilized a few old school samples of some classic hits, but indirectly #noKatyPerry and thats not a diss, I’m just saying its clearly a legit sample with a spin on it. All the sounds, beats, keyboards and Artist Tags on each track are unlike no other. –
ANOTHER GREAT FEAT with the LATE GREAT NIPSEY HUSSLE on the Track, GREATNESS >>Song Name: RICH N*gga LIFESTYLE –
Hearing Nipsey’s voice on this album speaks truth to everyone as he says Yall didnt think TaKashi would snitch? basically… Pretty damn Real, and on point. So as you can see, Im clearly a fan and love this Album, he’s had a good # Albums that were all great actually, But this one (including ALL THE FEATURES go HARDER THAN EVERRRRRRR)
SNOWMAN BIHHHH- JEEZY jumps on “BORN TO KILL” good jam, when’s his next album?
NEXT Song that I like is called : FASCINATED – Classic ol skool beat,
MMMMMMAAYYYYYYBACH MUSIC!!!! ROSS –
TRACK #11 goes hard AF: I STILL PRAY feat YFN LUCCI & BALL GREEZY –
STR8 FIRE, KIlls it with that ol skool beat and RON ISLEY sample…and ROSS specifically on his Lyrical Content. Ross also speaks on his near death experience, while the intro of the song is similar to a Tupac Rendition where a News Reporter is talking reporting as if we are watching the news or in the car listening to the radio saying “Rick Ross is in a Coma from suffering a seizure, near death.”
ROSS doesn’t hesitate to admit and speak on his faith with his almost fatal experience saying “ WHAT GOOD IS ALL THE WEALTH IF I AM NOT MYSELF, I’LL GIVE YOU BACK THE MONEY JUST TO HAVE MY HEALTH “
I think we can all feel that or appreciate where he is coming from, it’s just too damn too real. I know many were praying for him including myself …what a blessing that he pulled through and came back stronger than ever, while also sounding like a changed man at the same time. So lets give him the flowers & accolades, awards, & Praise for his epic work while he is still alive vs waiting until it’s too late like we kind of did when Nipsey passed. #BlessUP and this Album is truly 1 of my favorites thus far …lets see if or who can top it during the remainder of 2019….. I’ll wait.
Oh actually I’M NOT DONE YET…..
TRACK #14 MAYBACH MUSIC VI -features the wonderful John Legend & Legendary WEEZY F. BABY puts his flow down, which gives it a distinct good vibe, as you know Ross usually has like that stapel MAYBACH MUSIC jam he laces on each album….it’s like a chill song, but beautifully organized with the symphonic band instruments and John singing/piano, its greatness again.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
TRACK #15 GOLD ROSES featuring DRIZZY DRAKE I don’t even need to describe this, because you know its a happy ending when you put Drake with the BOSS, more of a chill end fade to black smooth melody, and the chorus has Drake singing the hook so Ross jumps on 2nd Verse and brings up being nominated but NEVER WON A GRAMMY, but he understands.. Well, can we petition this year, cuz he definitely deserves a GRAMMY for this album and I would even say it again, like I did in my intro….RICK ROSS FOR ALBUM OF THE YEAR, specifically a GRAMMY, and the rest should follow suit, respectfully, but that is just my strong opinion.
THEN DRAKE SINGS THE following HOOK right on TIME for #GOLDROSES …..
“YOU MADE ME THIS WAY, BEFORE IM GONE OUT OF THIS PLACE, PUT SOME FLOWERS IN MY FACE,
WON’T YOU LET ME KNOW THAT I DID OK<
DON’T WAIT TILL SOME OTHER DAY, NO-NO
THEY LOVE TO WAIT TILL ITS TOO LATE, -TOO LATE……..”
just think on that, lyrically speaking TRUTH!
The irony is, that I actually mentioned this topic 2 week prior in regards to celebrating my Grandmothers 94th Birthday off subject, but my point was the same, lets give the flowers to those who are still alive to feel the love, not when they are gone, like many fallen GREAT Artists who have passed too soon, and of course you apply this to your Loved ones (friends & fam) just in case you were wondering my thought process, thats a no brainer.
PORT OF MIAMI II for ALBUM OF THE YEAR and
RICK ROSS for PRESIDENT HUHHH!
