Rick Ross, never a demure presence, continues to command attention in the run-up to new album God Forgives, I Don’t.
The Bawse already makes a few choice appearances on Maybach Music Group album Self-Made 2, and got tough on Nas leak ‘Accident Murderers’. Lead single ‘Touch ‘N’ You’ didn’t really hit the spot, but the widely circulated ‘So Sophisticated’ shows Ross doing what he does best: wheezing, blustering and delicately reminding people not to fuck with him. Where Ross occasionally enters soporific territory, Meek Mill’s reedy flow keeps the energy up.
As Complex report, the track has now got a new video, and it’s another ultraglossy Maybach Films arrangement. Ross props up some shiny wheels, toasts some female guests and goes toplesss surrounded by fireballs. More oddly, he goes hell for leather on some lamb-flanks, Scott Walker-style,
God Forgives, I Don’t is due on July 31.
