Rick Ross Officially Delays "God Forgives, I Don't" To 2012

After stating that it was possibly pushed back, a Def Jam executive confirms that the album will arrive next year.

Yesterday, Rick Ross revealed that the December 13th release date for his new album God Forgives, I Don't wasn't set in stone. Now, Island Def Jam Senior VP of Marketing Chris Atlas confirms that the album will not arrive this year and that it's been officially delayed to "around first quarter, early second quarter" of 2012.

"I think we're all aware of his recent health issue, and based on some of the minor setbacks with that, we weren't able to confirm certain opportunities, because he physically wasn't able to deal with certain things at the time," Atlas told Billboard.com. "We want this to be his biggest albums - we know it's going to be his biggest album - so we did not want to pressure him into releasing an album based on the sake of a date."

During an interview with MTV's RapFix Live, Ricky Rozay said that he wasn't sure if the album would meet its deadline and that if he really wanted to, he could put out the LP on time.

"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."

  • V-Nasty is God

    Damn, is it groundhog day or some shit cause these Jeezy fans popping up all over the place like they seen their shadow or some shit. I thought I'd never come to Officer Ricky's defense but Jeezy fell the fuck off a LONG time ago. And he's just as fake. Everybody knows the only time he mixes Arm & Hammer with his coke is when he's rapping about it. He still has a few fans that haven't matured past 2008 so he might sell a solid 10k first week, and that's being optimistic.

    Biggie went to catholic school but he sold dope too???? smh Sure he did!!!!

    • rg

      There's a bit of truth to that. Biggie did imbelish a lot in his rhymes. Its been documented that biggie never buss guns, ran corners. He also never grew up in a 'one room shack'...his mom did pretty well for herself. BUTTT we shouldnt compare Ross to Biggie...just on the premise that Biggie is one of the illest lyricists ever...AND Ross was actually a fuckin COP...which isnt just embellishing...its straight up creating an opposite identity

    • fcvs

      you have no idea wtf you're talking about obviously it's because of his weight you don't have to be smart to realize that

    • Anonymous

      n i know hes pretty fake, but he makes good ass smooth music way better then fagass young jeezy who hasnt made a good song since his first album.

    • Anonymous

      his seizures had nothing to do wit his weight. they from a lack of sleep from grindin n workin so hard. he said in an interview himself his doctor asked him when the last time he had a full 8 hour night of sleep n he said i cant remember one night in the last 5 years. so even though he only in the hospital for a day or two, his doctors told him to stay in bed or well rested for a few weeks meaning he cant work as much fool

    The rapper who calls himself Rick Ross is a made up character based on Freeway Rick Ross a convicted drug trafficker from LA William was born in a nice neighborhood in miami.

    The rapper Rick Ross would have his fans believe that he made millions trafficking cocaine while running with one of Miamis violent street gangs. Rosss purported hoodlum connections were explored last April during a deposition of Officer Rey Hernandez Do you have anything that shows you he was affiliated with any gang? Hernandez replied, No, I do not. Zamren also got Hernandez to acknowledge that, prior to the January 2008 bust, Ross had never been arrested in Miami-Dade County, where he has long resided. William Leonard Roberts was a 1994 graduate of Miamis Carol City Senior High School and spent a year at Georgias Albany State College, where he studied Criminal Justice William Leonard Roberts was then appointed a prison guard in December 1995 after graduating from the DoC training academy He agreed to perform a wide range of correctional officer duties, including shoot an inmate attempting to escape
