Rick Ross is currently prepping the release of his upcoming solo album God Forgives, I Don’t, recently pushed from December 2011 to the top of 2012. In an interview with Billboard magazine, Ricky Rozay, who covers the magazine alongside Wale, explained the thought process behind the album title and how he decided on it.
“This album is almost like a movie,” he said. “I wanted [the title] to be something that was extremely emotional, to set up a real roller coaster ride as far as the music and thought process. It sounds like a term of retaliation, and with the picture that I’m painting, it felt perfect.”
He also spoke on his respect for Jay-Z and his Roc Nation movement, stating that it inspires him with his own Maybach Music Group imprint.
“I’ve most definitely been a fan of Hov and his whole movement,” he continued. “He gave a blueprint to a lot of young entrepreneurs, as well as Wayne, with how active Wayne is with artists. There’s a lot of different approaches, but at the end of the day, we’ve . . . just got to be hands-on and walk our own path.”
