Rick Ross Announces Title Of Sixth Studio Album

Shortly after releasing his fifth album "God Forgives, I Don't," Rick Ross preps the release of another album.

Rick Ross has announced the title of his upcoming sixth studio album, releasing in 2013.

In a promotional clip published on WSHH, Ricky Rozay counts hundred dollar bills in what's assumed to be his Miami, Florida abode, later hitting the hot tub to drink Ciroc vodka as a Curtis Mayfield record plays in the background.

At the end of the clip, the Maybach Music Group boss reveals that the LP will be called Mastermind.

Mastermind comes on the heels of his 2012 release God Forgives, I Don't, which debuted at No. 1 with 218,000 copies sold upon hitting stores in July.

Check the album announcement below.

    "RUNS INTO AN INTELLIGENT" I stopped reading after intelligent. Your constant use of caps is saying alot about you.

    "DMX made two DIFFERENT albums in a year, not a re-issue" I was referring more to Ross, but we've already covered the re-issue topic, so no sense in rehashing the same things.

    "And both of them went to #1 and went platinum" Which means nothing today when X can't even sell 200,000.

  • Brandon

    Who goes platinum these days in rap??? Drake, Kanye, Jayz, Nicki, Em. That's it. Who gives a flyin fuck who don't sell a million records. Ross up the bar each album where alot artist dont do that. Big Boi 1/2 of outkast can't sniff platinum. What does that mean, nothing! I can never get why N*ggas spew so much hate on Rick Ross. If you don't like Ross, why stay commenting after comment????

    "MMG GOT IT THE NEXT 10 SUMMERS" It's unlikely that Rick Hoss will live that long. He'll have already been dead from fried chicken poisoning long before then.

    "its pretty desperate when you make an album RIGHT after your last like nicki" You mean like when DMX dropped two albums in one year?

      "DMX dropped two albums in one year?" And both of them went to #1 and went platinum.

      DMX made two DIFFERENT albums in a year, not a re-issue. Funny how you hate on DMX Quote-Man and call him all kinds of druggie and desperate because he said he would beat Drake up but now he's good enough to use as an example.

    "Yea....he's forcing them out and they're not even going platinum" Aside from Eminem and Jay, nobody's going platinum these days.

  • sauce

    If you are a fan of Rick Ross music thats great, meny will be because hes constantly on the radio. Now if you say that hes one of the best in "Hip Hop" or a great "MC" then you have gotta be out your mind. What hes doing isnt hiphop, its mainstream pop music for people in the club to bumb to. He has no elements that a "MC" has and hes hiding a big shadow. Rick Ross and the whole MMG and YMCMB shouldnt be allowed to be called rappers, there just clowns sucken the life out of hiphop and the worst part about it all is that I see alot of these comments saying that Rick is better then 50. Now, Rick cant ever do what 50 has done and will do( i have a felling that hes album is gonna be hot) yes 50 kinda fell off over these years but not to the point he should be categorized with Rick. Think before you speak.

    Rick Ross belongs on screen, not on the mic. On screen you're actually supposed to pretend to be somebody you arent.

  • Ricky Rozay

    I see the haters and 50 dickriders out in full force. Your favorite rapper Curtis can't even get an album out while Rozay puts em out when he wants. Few niggas in the game can do that. Shit gon be a classic keep suckin 50 dick Rozay makin boss moves! Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'

    • King O

      Yea....he's forcing them out and they're not even going platinum, the way RR claims they are. An album that dropped in 2006, still hasn't gone platinum....RR is wack son....get over it. He's a fraud, liar, and denies the truth. If RR told the truth instead of FRONTIN, I would respect this dude.....BUT I DON'T and neither of his fans because to be a fan, you don't know the game, and you are just the ignorant massed that rappers like RR need to get paid. The real fans stay away from junk music & rapping, plus frontin by this Correction officer....Did you really believe 50's career was over.....The joke's on you jack!!! lmao....rozay my azz.....

  • akash aka ymcmb

    omg new albhul yeah rick ross top 3 mc of all time

    • King O

      yea...and 50's career is over. You are bugging to think RR is a top three MC. I can name thrity rappers before, I even beging to get to RR. As a matter of fact, RR is no where near the top 100....real talk!

You should pull your trousers up, you know it ain't your type of look You're no playa, you're no pimp, I think that you should read a book And seckle, find yourself a pretty girl and settle You know that if it's on that you ain't drawing for no metal I know them rap songs got you thinking you're some kind of g Well if that's the case, then que sara and what will be will be

    Stop complaining about features. Its the way the industry works now a days. I will admit its all the same lyrics (weak) & good beats. He sounds redundant. Even with all those features its still not a buy for me. Now dont complain when you see other artist like 50 having mad features. IT IS RAP today folks.

    • Anonymous

      Im siding with 50 on this dumbass. Im pointing out that features are how the game works today. SEE: major distribution, new day, my life. Learn to read. I bumped 50 in the gunit radio days fool

      Dude STFU and realise 50 has made his career WITHOUT features! Your just another MMG dickrider bringing an established artist into a rappers formula.

    Expect the same thing from his other 5 albums; tight production, weak lyrics, same repetitive content/theme, and 10+ features on it, plus at least 2-3 appearances from MMG artists.

    "Is he in a hurry, desperate to sell?" It's his job, dummy. Is he supposed to wait five years to release another album?

      He never released the album. All he's doing is capitalizing off his buzz and keeping the momentum going.

      its pretty desperate when you make an album RIGHT after your last like nicki. Artists today need to slow down, and not try to oversaturate and flood the market with music - maybe then their entire album will be appreciated

    Ross & the MMG gimmick has run it's course! Ross is 37 y/o and you know nothing about him except that he was a Correctional Officer. He doesn't talk about anything in his rhymes, no substance, nothing about who he is, etc. You gotta be a real artist to stay around & keep being relevant. Times Up Fat Cop!

  • Anonymous

    Okay... He's not that prolific, he just understands that you've got to keep releasing projects to keep the attention of the mainstream (not saying whether his targeting of said area is good or bad). That's why, for better or worse, Rihanna is so successful. By the same token, Kanye West has released a project (of some sort), every year since 2004 bar 2006 and 2009. Is he "in a hurry, desperate to sell"?

    • wreiad

      There was a gap between Port of Miami [2007] and Trilla [2009]. And a gap between Teflon Don [2011] and GFID [2013]. Thanks for playing.

      no, because you just said why you silly sumbitch... he's taken gaps between his albums to build the hype and perfect his craft. shitty example using Kanye

    Not sure why this guy is in such a hurry to put out music again. He drops a mixtape mere months after his last release and now he's already announcing another album?! It's not like Ross is gonna come back with something different and unique. He's gonna hurry back with the same recycled formula and content instead of taking some time off to come back fresh.

    "ITS SAD BIG NAME ARTISTS DROP PROJECTS IN A BLUE MOON BECAUSE THEY CAN AND THIS GUY IS PUTTING THEM OUT LIKE NO LIMIT AND THEY NOT EVEN GOING PLAT" ^ has a point

  • 614grind

    Ross puts out an album every 3 months. Microwave emcee.

  • House

    "Not even going plat" It's not 1999, going plat is reserved for AAA artists like Em these days. I'm a fan or Rozay,but his braggadocios lyrics are starting to wear thin, he needs to grow up lyrically and expand his reference points to stay current. He's got a ear for beats though, so I'm personally looking forward to hearing this album regardless.

    Ross still on top when is all of his haters gonna give up and see all the hate in the world is not gonna stop him

      When you speak on big name artists you mean Jay, Em, Drake, and Kanye right? Because outside of those guys, majority artists that have more than one album out have been droppin them by the year as well. And artists wouldnt have to drop once every other year if the hip hop audience didnt have the attention span of a 4year old. We get music the second the artists puts it out then by the end of the month the song is considered old
