Editors’ Notes

Beset by attacks on his character — including the revelation of his past history as a correctional officer, and a slew of defamation stunts launched by 50 Cent — Rick Ross was in danger of losing all credibility. But his detractors ire has given him focus, and Deeper Than Rap embraces a kind of sleek, low-key funk and proves to be his most consistent effort to date. Replete with wah guitar, rim cracks and rotund bass, “Magnificent,” “Yacht Club,” “Rich Off Cocaine” and “Gunplay” echo the live instrumentation of the Roots and funk-laden authority of Scarface. Of course, there are a couple songs that delve into signature Miami glitz: “Lay Back” might be a tad too saccharine, but “All I Really Want” is the ideal futuristic club jam. Ross uses most of his lyrics to reassure listeners that his public relations problems have not stopped him from living the high life, but when he decides to vent his rage in “Valley of Death,” the results are downright venomous. With Deeper Than Rap, Ross is once again rhyming with purpose, the fire in his belly stoked by controversy that could have paralyzed a lesser rapper.

11 Features. This is a Def Jam compilation. Rappers need to learn to stand on their own two feet. I remember when features were put together because two giants wanted to go at it on track or Mary J needed to make you cry on that thoughtful track. Every song sounds exactly the same. Like they used the same beats. Two thumbs down.

Dont buy..... Not worth it...... pretty much it.... Officer RIckky!!

Another Classic!

Ross' flow has definitely matured over the years. Difference between 50 and Ross is that 50's recent music lacks the hunger and passion. Ross makes music for those that are still chasing their dreams. This is excellent music. Very classy. Something you drink a glass of cognac to and smoke a cigar. Props to my man Ricky.

Tattooed with pictures of AK-47s, Miami's six-foot, 300-pound rap figure known as Rick Ross embraced his city's reputation for drug trafficking on his debut single, "Hustlin'," in 2006. While Atlanta and Houston artists were establishing their cities as Southern strongholds, Ross aimed at putting Miami back in rap's national spotlight. Ross, real name William Roberts, grew up in Carol City, Florida, an impoverished northern suburb of Miami. Influenced by artists like Luther Campbell and the Notorious...
