iTunes Review

No rapper has embraced the absurdity of excess better than Rick Ross, a man who once claimed he ate lobster bisque for breakfast and wore a pinky ring that cost twice America’s average household income. But Ross scaled back on 2014’s Mastermind, making room for a mellower, more contemplative mood. And while Black Market isn’t short on tall tales, we do get reflections about mom (“Smile Mama, Smile”), loose, '90s-style beats (DJ Premier’s blunted “Black Opium”), and “Crocodile Python,” where Ross examines the perils of success as intensely as he celebrates it. Also telling: The album’s guest list features more R&B luminaries than it does fellow rappers.

Need I say more? This album is gonna be straight fire!! I love the direction that Rick Ross is been taking with this album. Gonna be dope!

Good album… Not his best work.

Good album… Not his best work. I give these artists much respect. I think it can be difficult to create so much music, album after album. I really think it takes time to construct a song and write poetic lyrics, let alone create an entire album. Rap fans get so caught up in the whole probation officer thing. Rap fans are the only fans that believe you have to actually sell dope to write a song about the actual deed. Rap fans are the only fans that believe you actually have to live what you rap about. Some of the greatest rap artists wrote songs about what they saw growing up, about the hardships of life in the hood. Tupac Shakur, arguably one of the greatest rap artists in history wrote songs about what he saw growing up. Tupac attended the Baltimore School for the Arts, where he took acting and dance classes, including ballet. He wrote songs about what he saw in his neighborhood growing up. It doesn’t mean he actually killed people or sold dope. He saw drug dealers selling dope, pimps, and young girls having babies out of wedlock. With that being said, he decided to write songs about it. Music artists in other genres of music like R&B, alternative, and country music sing songs everyday about a life in which they have not experienced for themselves. However this is tolerated because music is art. Music is an art similar to writing a book or movie script. You are telling a story. Whether it is fictional or not, your purpose is to create something people will be drawn too. Your purpose is to create something people will want to read or watch in a theater. Actors portray gangsters in movies all the time. This is okay, because they are acting in a role. It’s artistic. Denzel Washington played an evil crooked detective in the movie Training Day. Do you really believe that Denzel is an actual heinous detective in real life? In my opinion, Rick Ross writes music that depicts what he saw growing up. Do I believe that Rick Ross was a mastermind coke dealing drug kingpin. I absolutely do not. Do I believe that he may have been a regular dope boy or corner boy on the block selling a little weed or crack for small amounts of money to buy the latest Jordan’s? . Maybe. My thought is that he may have run dope for a big time hustler, and wrote about some of the things he saw. In my opinion, he probably saw a real dope kingpin moving bricks and decided to write about that life. In any case, it’s all art. Whether writing raps or writing books about what you saw growing up in your neighborhood.

Rick Ross - Black Market (Deluxe)

I'm not sure how I should feel about this album because I can't listen to 1 Rick Ross album all the way through without skipping. I also heard that this will be his last album on Def Jam. Hopefully, Rozay will end this Def Jam contract on a good note with a dope album.

Before I end this review, I have something to address; I ws reading the reviews from other people on this album and I read this one review that said "If you don't like this then you're a hater and a bitter one." Hmmm ... I didn't know having an opinion made you a "hater." People nowadays can't have an opinion on something without being labeled a hater by a group of stans that defend these celebrities to the death of them like the celebrities pay their bills. SMH...
