Image


1. Intro--nothing really, not even a short rhyme 0/0

2. Push It--"Scarface" fans will immediately recognize the sample used, hot beat and Ross spits hard, good start to the album 4/5

3. Blow f/ Dre--catchy, thumping Cool & Dre beat with Dre doing the refrain, shockingly not a cocaine anthem, but a money song, if you like Cool & Dre's production style, you'll enjoy this 4/5

4. Hustlin'--this has been out since the start of 2006, one of the album's most undeniable bangers, this is the track that got this album made and spawned several remixes and biters 5/5

5. Cross That Line f/ Akon--if you're into the whole Akon hook/beat formula, it works, its an ill somber track where Ross delves into his childhood a little and gives a little bit of reason behind his ways, good track 4/5

6. I'm Bad--this was on the M.I. Yayo mixtape, but a simple, hard, very old school beat is the perfect complement for Ross to tell us how he gets down, another good track 4/5

7. Boss f/ Dre--very similar to "Blow", another Cool & Dre production with Dre on the hook, not nearly as good as the tracks that preceded it and Ross doesnt do a lot for it, but the beat is hot in its own right 3/5

8. For Da Low--Jazze Pha is a pleasant surprise on this track, giving one of his typical beats enough edge for a song about getting drugs for the cheapest price 3.5/5

9. Where My Money--by now, we're all up on The Runners, the production team that makes the slow, murky beats with chopped and screwed vocal samples, this beat is ill and Ross even displays a little bit of wit on this one 4.5/5

10. Get Away f/ Mario Winans--of course, you know Def Jam had Rick make some songs for the ladies, you can tell this isnt his lane, but this track isnt half bad and its cool to hear Mario again 3/5

11. Hit U From The Back f/ Rodney--the beat isnt even bad, but 2 girly songs in a row on an album like this is a foolish mistake, and Ross's talk to the ladies isnt much better on this one, the refrain is straight foolishness 1.5/5

12. White House--the album finally gets back to Ross' bread and butter and he compares himself to a cocaine dealing President, entertaining track 3/5

13. Pots & Pans--this track has been in circulation for quite some time, not too bad of a song, the refrain could be better, but the beat is a nice mellow change up 3/5

14. It's My Time f/ Lyfe Jennings--Lyfe sounds out of place on this and the beat cant seem to decide what it wants to do, its a waste of what sounds like it could have an ill song if it was done right 2/5

15. Street Life f/ Lloyd--a very tried rap/R&B collabo, the beat doesnt work at all, sounds like a Murder Inc. reject 1/5

16. Hustlin' (Remix) f/ Jay-Z & Young Jeezy--i cant be mad at this one, Jay and Jeezy kill the track using Ross' flow, one of my favorite tracks of the year 5/5

17. It Ain't A Problem f/ Carol City Cartel--the obligatory crew track, luckily they save one of the hot beats for it, the Cartel doesnt sound like much though 2/5

18. I'm A G f/ Lil' Wayne & Brisco--hot beat, Brisco adds zilch to the track, Wayne has a good showing and handles the refrain, decent track, could have been much better though 3/5

19. Prayer--a slow, mournful track allows Ross to close out the album talking about real shit and finally dropping the whole drug dealing kingpin shtick, you can see real potential from Ross in this song 4/5


Overall=3.5/5


The first 9 tracks are all certified bangers, after that its riddled with filler and attempts to cater to an audience that wont care if Rick Ross does songs with Lyfe, Lloyd or Mario Winans, if you take off all 4 girly songs/R&B collabos, you have an album just as good as "Thug Motivation 101" or "Trap Muzik", to compare him to two similar Southern rappers' breakthrough albums, but its still a solid LP, not quite a classic, but he does live up to most of his hype

Rick Ross is the definition of hype

the dude has no skills, no charizma, no flow. His album is formulaic as hell complete with Akon guest apperance and introspective track at the end (like thenew Obie Trice).....weak

plus he has nothing on Freeway when it comes to facial hair

fuck that fat fuck

1/5

I don't no a single person that likes his ass in miami. People were feelin Hustlin and Push It but still don't give a shit about him. I was surprised that he is doing well. I don't see anyone touching Trick Daddy in miami.

I personally liked "Street Life", but that's because it has this nostalgic effect on me. I was going through a lot of shit when this album dropped, so I like most of it, and I'm not one for crack-rap.
