As Rick Ross gears up for his next album, God Forgives, I Don’t, the Miami emcee offered up some details about some of the records on his new project, as well as the next installment in the Self Made series.
During a conference call, the Bawse spoke on recording with Just Blaze, who produced the rapper’s latest song, “I Love My Bitches.” “I just want to tap back into that ’90s vintage Hip Hop sound… put a spin to it, and bring that back,” said Ross of the producer, notable for his collaborations with Jay-Z, and dozens of other artists.
Ross revealed that he recorded numerous songs with Just for his upcoming release, God Forgives, I Don’t. “We cut a couple records,” he said. “That particular record, I did those three verses in one take. Real Hip Hop enthusiasts listening to that verse closely all the way through, they can just hear how natural that shit sounded. …It was just so vintage.”
Rick Ross added that he is planning on a sequel to Self Made, Vol. 1, the Maybach Music Group compilation, which he proclaimed is coming “sooner than you think.”
