The latter half of 2011 was marked by a bit of a hiccup for Big Man Rick Ross, who was forced to push back his fifth studio album God Forgives, I Don't after notable health issues. Now Rozay is healthy on his feet, trying to make us forget about the little airplane incident by bribing fans with free music—not that we're complaining. Friday afternoon marked the release of his new mixtape, Rich Forever, filled with the expected Maybach Music bravado—the "Untouchable Empire"—and cameos from labelmates like Wale and Meek Mill. Along with sufficient MMG references, the 20 track (!) cut also boasts big-name guests like Drake, Diddy, Kelly Rowland and John Legend—plus a skit. We love skits.
Furthering the generosity comes the video for "Stay Schemin," featuring Drake and French Montana. In the clip, the boys stand around in the darkness—as they are wont to do—where only the headlights of their Maybachs provide just enough of a glow to count the large stack of Benjamins in each of their pockets. No points for creativity, but we will say Rozay does Intimidating Stance In Front Of An Expensive Car better than anybody in the business. Learn something from the Bawse himself, and check out the full tracklisting, below.
