HipHopDX – This week in Hip Hop, Rick Ross released his highly anticipated album Port of Miami 2. Also, Blueface claimed he slept with at least 1000 women, and Dilated Peoples member Evidence recalled his past beef with Eminem.
Rick Ross Drops “Port Of Miami 2”
Port of Miami 2 didn’t come without a little controversy though. On the track “Rich Nigga Lifestyle” featuring the late Nipsey Hussle, the late artist dedicated some lines to the dismissal of Tekashi 6ix9ine.
“I can’t name a fake nigga that was not exposed/How y’all niggas so surprised that Tekashi told?” Nip raps on the song. “Ain’t a real street nigga ‘less you got a code.”
On the joint “Vegas Residency,” many believe Rozay dissed Kanye West because of the references to Yeezy’s affinity for Donald Trump. The Maybach Music Group boss clarified his verse in an interview with Genius, saying he was just speaking the truth and it wasn’t a diss.
Ross is scheduled to kick off his Port of Miami 2 Tour on September 23.
