We know that Rick Ross wasn't the most pleased when Timbaland decided to let us hear an alternate version of "Movin' Bass," which heavily featured his artist Tink (and was coincidentally much better than the version that landed on Rozay's album).

Compared to Gucci Mane's onslaught of projects in 2014, Rick Ross releasing two albums in one year may not seem too impressive. However, the fact of the matter is this: Rick Ross is the first major-label rap artist to release two studio albums in one year since 2010, when Lil Wayne released Rebirth and I Am Not A Human Being, respectively. It is no easy feat, especially considering how hesitant record labels are nowadays to release new music.

Samples Of The Week: November 27 Nov 29, 2014 at 01:56pm
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".  This week, see who Rick Ross, Boldy James and Azealia Banks sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

Review: Rick Ross' "Hood Billionaire"
Review: Rick Ross' "Hood Billionaire" Nov 25, 2014 at 12:07pm
Releasing two full length albums in one year is a rare feat most rappers will never accomplish, but in a sense, it's really nothing new for Rick Ross, who yesterday released Hood Billionaire, his second solo album of the year. The rapper has been dropping albums, along with mixtapes that have been considered to be as good as albums, within months of each other for years now. His latest album, however, isn’t a fitting follow-up to his sixth solo release, Mastermind, which hit retailers in March of this year.

If you've been anywhere on the internet in the past month, you may have come across a now legendary vine of Rick Ross giving a shout out to "all the pear". The rapper has recently lost a ton of weight on his self-described "Ross-fit" diet, and was simply describing the benefits of his lifestyle change in the Tim Westwood interview. The quote has become quite a sensation, to the point that Ross' Instagram comment section has been berated by pear emojis.

When Rick Ross announced his second album of 2014, Hood Billionaire, just nine weeks ago, he had many people wondering whether he'd be able to rush out a project so quickly during a year that's seen more than its fair share of album delays and push-backs. Well, now that it's available for streaming, Hood Billionaire seems like it truly is locked in for a November 24th release date.
