Rick Ross released his new album, Mastermind on Feburary 25, 2014. The rapper collaborated with P. Diddy, Young Jeezy, Big Sean, Meek Mill, Lil’ Wayne, and Kanye West to name a few. With the collaboration of these great artists, something great was created. Not all the songs were the greatest that they could or should have been, but it was a great album in general.
The album consists of 19 Tracks including the following: “Supreme”, a tune with a low-key, 70s vibe, laced with horns, and a smooth rap delivery. Equally enjoyable is the lyrical “Thug Cry,” a tune bolstered by the nearly cloying lyric “I just wanna be the one you love.”
All these great songs deserve a listen. I would recommend it to anybody to buy: it is worth the money that you spend on the whole album and get the deluxe edition to get the extra tracks.
Overall, I would give it a thumbs up.
