Rick Ross Gives ‘Bound 2′ a Twist
It’s a new year, but that doesn’t mean Rick Ross is changing up his strategy. The year will surely see the release of his delayed ‘Mastermind’ LP, but for now, he continues his streak of adding a verse to some popular songs with Kanye West‘s ‘Bound 2.’
After stunting on his ‘My Hitta‘ remix, Rozay also turns his attention to the opposite sex on this solo effort. His version of ‘Bound 2′ is more free-associative as the Maybach Music Group leader poses some questions: “Do the bitches love you when you out the league? / Will my car still crank when I hit the keys?” He becomes the first mainstream rapper to reference how Anderson Silva gruesomely broke his leg in his last fight and crowns himself “the next Eazy to be.”
The song finds Ross in a celebratory mood while West faces a lawsuit over the very same beat. Ricky Spicer of Ponderosa Twins Plus One fame is suing West for not getting his permission to sample his voice on the track.
On a related note, when are Ross and West going to collaborate again? ‘Devil in a New Dress‘ is a highlight off West’s classic ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ album.
