Rick Ross' new album is dropping on July 31st, so he's been in doing various interviews to promote it. Most recently, he talks about two of the most anticipated cuts off it.
Rick Ross is in promotion mode, with his album God Forgives, I Don't, dropping in the next two weeks. Yesterday he called into Bootleg Kev's show on Power 98.3 (via HipHopWired) to discuss the LP, theÂ possibilityÂ of signing Nipsey Hussle,Â and he alsoÂ spoke on two of the most anticipated tracks off the album, "3 Kings" with Jay-Z & Dr. Dre andÂ "Sixteen" featuring Andre 3000.
On his fifth album, Ricky Rozay says he worked with people he was a huge fan of first, "My album, I just collaborated with people I was huge fans of such as Dr. Dre for the first time man.Â Dr. Dre and Jay-Z on the same record by the name of '3 Kings.' Just witnessing that, being in the studio with both of them dudes, it was a hell of an experience. It was something that I could never really even see happening. So on a personal level that was big for me."
On "Sixteen" with Three Stacks, Ross says it's a "classic." When asked what the concept of the record is, Rozay said,Â "Basically it was just when you get some music that you really love or a track that you really love, sometimes sixteen bars is not enough to really express yourself.Â We just went to that next level. I think for people to hear Andre do what he did; I'ma let y'all count how many bars he did as well as of course what I did, man.You know, he pulled out the guitar and banjo on this one and he sang a little bit on the end of it. It just broke all the rules of making a standard record, you know what I'm sayin'."
He reveals that he wasn't actually in the studio with Andre to record "Sixteen," as Andre was filming for the Jimi Hendrix biopic.
