Rick Ross – ‘I Wonder Why’

Rick Ross, Soundcloud

While ‘I Wonder Why’ starts out as another menacing banger from Rick Ross, the Beat Billionaire-produced cut quickly escalates into a socio-political anthem. In particular, it finds Rozay reflecting on the George Zimmerman trial.

At the outset, the Maybach Music Group leader sounds mostly concerned with his money and his work; in other words it’s exactly what you’d expect. But then the monolithic ‘I Wonder Why’ veers into another direction as Rozay spits, “Now I’m being followed by some creepy ass cracka/Stand your ground!/Stand your ground!/Stand your ground, you gotta stand your ground!”

It’s a knock on Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, which Zimmerman used to defend the slaying of Trayvon Martin. And if that wasn’t clear from the lyrics, it’s made obvious by the sample of Martin’s friend, Rachel Jeantel, at the end.

You can listen to the track below.
