Rick Ross Drops New Album Info & Drake Feature, ‘Made Men’
Rick Ross topped The BoomBox’s 2010 year-end list with his fourth album ‘Teflon Don,’ and he’s going to keep it moving in 2011. Following the recent release of his mixtape ‘Ashes to Ashes,’ the Miami rapper has announced that the title of his fifth album will be ‘God Forgives, I Don’t,’ and has released the first cut off the project — ‘Made Men’ featuring Drake — to the Internet early this morning.
Rawse called in this morning to Power 105 to break the news about the album. “I’m in Swisher Studios right now working on my new project,” he said. “50 percent of the album [is] already [done]. This is the first time I’m revealing it, but the name of the album is ‘God Forgives, I Don’t.”
The choice of album title might ruffle some feathers, as Bronx rapper Cory Gunz revealed that his solo debut EP would bear that title in August 2010. The Young Money signee previously said that he was holding off on releasing the project so that the promotion and timing was right. “It’s ready but I wanted to make sure I could put the project out properly,” Gunz told VIBE.com. “I’m not trying to flood the market and oversaturate myself. So I’m taking long to keep building the anticipation for this one.”
Ross also shared that he originally intended to include ‘Made Men’ on his ‘Ashes to Ashes’ mixtape, but decided to keep it for his studio LP. “One of the records that I excluded off the mixtape was ‘Made Men’ featuring the homie Drake. I wanted to put some final touches on it and I wanted to give you the opportunity to bless the world with that,” he said.
While on the other end of the line, Ricky also stated that Wale was currently with him in Swisher Studios recording music. Though he didn’t confirm Wale and Meek Millz’s signing to his Maybach Music imprint, he said that the deals are currently being finalized.
