CD Review: Rick Ross

God Forgives, I Don't (Def Jam/Maybach)

by

comment

The Miami rapper's fifth LP doesn't stray far from the various solo mixtapes and albums by his Maybach Music Group crew he's released since 2010's Teflon Don. So there's plenty of rhymes about the rich-and-famous lifestyle Ross has immersed himself in since he launched his career. But there's also a sense of coming-down reflection, a look back on a life that wasn't always so glamorous. Big, glossy, and just a bit familiar.
