In two weeks, Rick Ross will release his second album of the year. November 24’s Hood Billionaire promises to finish where Mastermind left off.

As has become rather customary on Rawss albums, Jay Z is a guest (though only on the hook). Def Jam’s breakout artist of 2006 and (then) President Carter reunite again, with Timbaland behind the boards. “Movin’ Bass” speaks to D-boys and B-boys alike, as Rozay and Hova allude back to their hand-to-hand pasts, while embracing the metaphor of making trunk-rattling anthems for years. Of course with that title, Timbo cooks up a beat that really massages the speakers, and per usual, taps into his wheelhouse of Drum & Bass, and other EDM pockets to get a sound that simply cannot be duplicated.


Totally a different tempo and texture than “Devil Is A Lie,” “Movin’ Bass” shows that Ross and Jay have amassed nearly an album’s worth of material together in eight summers, with no stopping sight.

As a note, this joint hit the (air) waves of New York City simultaneously—in a rare move. This HOT 97 radio rip includes the usual Funkmaster Flex taggage.
