Rick Ross Sets A Just Blaze Track On Fire Big Time (Audio)
AUGUST 2 UPDATE: Rick Ross and Swizz Beatz have released the video to “Big Tyme”:
ORIGINAL JULY 2 STORY: Rick Ross is releasing a sequel to his 2006 chart-topping debut, Port Of Miami. Bolstered by smash single “Hustlin,'” the Def Jam Records album that put the former Erick Sermon protege and Suave House artist all over the media.
After the Toronto Raptors won the NBA Finals last month, Ross was a feature on Drake’s “Money in the Grave” off of Drizzy’s The Best In The World Pack. He also teamed up with fellow Maybach Music Group artist Wale for “Act A Fool” just a few days later. Now, Rick Ross has returned with another cut leading up to the release of Port of Miami 2: Born to Kill. What’s more, it features a sizzling Just Blaze track.
“Big Tyme,” features Swizz Beatz on vocals. However, the song is produced by the man Swizz battled back in early 2017, Just Blaze. Previously, the Roc-A-Fella hit-maker worked with Ross on loosies, and features for Drake and The Game. This time, over some 808’s, Rozay goes to his classic well of raps about struggle turned braggadocios luxury: “Breaking shackles, I’m that ni**a disobeying his master,” he raps. “Paper chasing, standing still is a f*ckin’ disaster.”
P.O.M.2 will be Rick Ross’ first solo album drop since 2017’s Rather You Than Me, which was generally well-received upon its release. Last month, in an interview with The Cruz Show, Ross cryptically urged fans to pay attention to August 8, which will be the 13th-birthday of his platinum debut. That said, look out for the drop.
The song has also been added to the official Ambrosia For Heads playlist:
