I guess this formula could apply to a few rappers, (Jeezy, Pusha T, and Jadakiss), but somehow Ross beat selection seems a little bit better and his stories are a little more outlandish. Sprinkle on the adlibs, and his boisterous voice and gives makes the Rick Ross persona grander. Sometimes when you listen to his music, it feels like you are watching a good crime movie. After a while, you stop paying attention to the content and just accept the lyrics and vibe to the beats.
Port of Miami 2 is Rick Ross’s tenth album, it has fifteen tracks and a ton of guests features. Despite the guest stars, Ross still hold his own solo tracks like Turnpike Ike, Vegas Residency and Big Tyme. However the stand out tracks on the album are Nobody Favorite featuring Gunplay and Bogus Charms featuring Meek Mill. I also liked I Still Pray featuring YFN Lucci and Ball Greezy. The Born to Kill song goes hard but Jeezy‘s verse is subpar. On the other hand, Denzel Curry‘s verse on Running The Streets was straight fire.
