Rick Ross' Fifth Album Sees Possible Delay, Features Jay-Z Collaboration

After last month's seizures, Rick Rozay says he may have to push the release of his album "God Forgives, I Don't."

Rick Ross may have to delay the release of his fifth studio album due to setbacks from seizures that forced him to cancel shows last month.

"The date is still tentative, December 13," he told MTV. "[Because of] my little health situation, I had to postpone a lot of my groundwork. And I feel like that's important for artists like myself."

Ross said that the album, titled God Forgives, I Don't, may suffer the effects of minimal exposure if he does not delay the release.

"If I wanted to, I'm pretty sure I could still meet that date, but I think for the people, it's more important [to lay groundwork] for when I get out there and look them in the face and touch them hands," he explained. "We've just gotta lay ground for it, and I'mma keep y'all updated."

In addition, the Maybach Music leader spoke on his collaboration with Jay-Z on a track that will make the album. 

"Just expect the biggest collabo we've ever made together. It's just gonna make the project mean that much more," he said. "Any time me and the big homie get together, you know I'm coming with my A-game, 'cause I wanna make sure the homie is impressed with whatever I'm coming to the table with — and he was. He blessed me, so y'all get ready for it."

Ross is currently promoting Maybach Music artist Wale's sophomore effort Ambition, which debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 200.

    You was just clowning the Big Homie Young about pushin shit back. I honestly fuck with Rick Ross as a rapper but as a person William Roberts thats his real name is a fake. ANy nigga play both sides he Danny Brasco remember that

    • Anonymous

      when he talked about jeezy he was talking about buzz. Im sure if jeezy had a health issue ross would not have been talking shit about push backs. you're acting like he's pushing shit back because he's not relevant. i really dont understand why its so hard to comprehend for some people. and i have no idea what the relevance of that donnie brasco comparison has to do with anything.

    • koofi

      its donnie, But you right. he is the rap games Donnie Brasco.

  • RAMSES

    you know i think jay z fake king ass had 2 love when 9-11 happened ,, cause he was like imma be at the top for damn near ever ,, cause aint nonbody gonna be able 2 get as rich as i did off this shit ,, in order 2 make 50 a player in the game where he could trade a few shots with jay z the powers that be blessed him with that water ,, anyway a jay z collaboration means shit 2 me ,,nether do any of them niggaz he signed who were all protected while there friends went 2 jail ,,yall do know if pac an big wasnt killed they would be worth 2.3 billion combined ,,give or take 1 point ,,all that money jay z puff 50 cent cash money an at his time master p playin with was all pac big & aaliyah ,, but hey if marvin gaye wasnt killed he would of been bigger than clive davis ,,anyway ill let u morans finish with ur worthless comments an fuck all u other chicken shit niggaz

    WE DON'T BELIEVE YOU - YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE when I get out there and look them in the face TAKE OFF YOUR GLASSES AND SHOW YOUR EYES AND FACE ONLY PEOPLE WITH SOMETHING TO HIDE DO WHAT HE DOES

  • Nostradamus

    10 years from now and I'm being generous when I say 10, most fans of Rick Ross, Drake, and all these cats that are out now are not going to admit to have ever been fans. Don't believe me? How many people here were online defending Soulja Boy 4 to 5 years ago? OJ the juice man? Who was on here saying "you hater cuz Gucci mane richer than you"? Point is what's out now will get played and is stuck to these these times. You will find yourself asking yourself why you ever liked this shit instead of saying that's my shit! then you're going to dig up all the shit you slept on around this time.

      50 sittin on a empire thats where he at now these rappers wont even get close to him

    • Just Sayin'

      I'm a 50 Cent fan. I'm also a huge Lloyd Banks fan and his lyricism still is raw as fuck. And yeah, I enjoy Ross music too. I don't say he's the most lyrical fucker out there or anything, but the dude makes solid albums. C.O. or no C.O., "Teflon Don" was fucking sick. And I'm no dick-rider, I love everything from "Reasonable Doubt" to "The Infamous" to "The Recession", but the guy puts together good music. I admit though, the two "God Forgives" tracks I've heard have been ehhh. The Just Blaze production on "I Love My Bitches" is motherfucking blazing though

    • 954broward

      da ppl defendin soula boy, gucci, etc etc were ppl who were uneducated and knew nothing about hip hop. ima alwayz b a fan of ross

    • tresdemayo

      I'll add 50 and Game and the all G-Unit to that list. People where even praisin Lloyd Banks lyricism back in 03 or something, where are they now ? Listen to the new Krs-One single (from his 20th studio album !) and see what relevance and longevity mean. Or even Sean Price, who came back from hell in the early 2000's and keeps doing his thang

    We have all met people who were dishonest and avoided eye contact. Many people know that their eyes betray their lies. Some try to conceal the truth by wearing sunglasses of looking down at the ground JUST SO YOU KNOW.. REAL NIGGAS DON'T FOOL WIT THIS FRAUD UNLESS THE MONEY IS INVOLVED.

    • GGENERAL

      wouldn't that make them frauds as well. Last I checked real (N-WORDS) only eff with real (N-WORDS) regardless if money involved or not. Get ya mind right young'n...

      are you deaf or just stupid? he had seizures and that affected promotion? wtf did you just read? do you just hear what you want to hear or what?

  • TheCrit

    I think Def Jam might have caused it.. they got Jeezy coming out, so they cant have both. this beef situation will make one of them's numbers to look bad. Def Jam dont want that.. its a smart move after all.. why you think Jimmy moved Game to Geffen when he was beefing with G-unit, its cos of things like this. you under one roof and bring the bread to that same roof it doesnt work.. anyways i would have kept my money for the Ross disc, but since they aint coming out the same time Ima hear Jeezy's leak and if i like it i'l cop it.. for now lets go buy that Shady nigga Yelawolf's Radioactive.. i heard the leak and its the bomb, best album to come out of the south 2011.. lets go

  • the_truth

    A lot of artist claim to be "Hustlers" yet very few show this mentality. Take Jeezy - everyone talks how real he is and streets and all that but you compare him to Ross and i can see the hustle in Ross and not Jeezy... True Hustlers: Jay-Z, Diddy, Ross, T.I, 50 Fake Hustlers: Jeezy, The Whole NY Rap scene who cannot put themselves on Just saying... Ross is on his hustle

    • coolc

      no nigga jeezy shit is not owned by jay z and he always makes more money then ross every year... look at forbes ross is a gold nigga and barely that cause deeper than rap only sold 400,000 and teflon don only did 600,000 so jeezy the hustler not the cop.

    • the_truth

      Jeezy's clothing line is owned by Rocawear dude... thats Jay-Z money...

    hey yall imma be real right now...If some of you can explain to me why this dude get so much love from other artists...Drizzy, Wayne, Jay, Kanye all of dem be lovin this mofugga right here I just dont see it..........

    • Let's see if I can help

      It might be because his albums do numbers, as well as his singles, his mixtapes (MMG artitsts included) do millions in downloads, and he has a huge loyal following. Not to mention Wale just dropped at number two on the charts. I guess what I'm trying to say is, real or fake (whichever you perceive him to be), he's good for business

    • ETK

      well it can be easily to discern, scratch a partner's back will get yours scratched, maybe Ross really does deal coke LOL my fascination is how fans stay interested in this guy point blank

    • Rere

      I haven't figured it out for years.

  • Nico 3

    If he delays it, the sales will be lower than if he just kept the original date. Use your head. People buy CD's during Xmas. It's a no brainer.
