Rick Ross Tells a Mournful Tale About Young Lives Lost to Violence (Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Less than a month after releasing his free Black Dollar album, Rick Ross continues to make new music. As with songs on that project, like “Foreclosures,” as well as select other verses in Ross’ older repertoire, like “Thug Cry” and “Poor Decisions,” he shifts out of “bawse” mode and shows a vulnerable side.

The first verse of “Babies Cry” tells a tale of a young Ross in 1985 who is surrounded by violence, but uses music and family as a refuge. The second verse depicts a grown Ross who, while hardened by his experiences as a youth, still reflects mournfully on the young lives that were lost to circumstances he survived.
