GFID Review: 6.7/10

noah0003,

Ross had a hard act to follow after "Teflon Don" and "Rich Forever", which was supposed to be the "appetizer" for this album. Unfortunately, ross fails to fill his own shoes. GFID doesnt feel like a complete album. The beats are great, as expected, but they still fall a notch below teflon don's.

GFID starts out right with 'Pirates': "halluciation of money while ni**a's stomach just rumble". It follows with the highlight of the album, '3 kings', where dre, ross, & jay all kill their verses. 'Sixteen' is an auful concept for a song. Andre 3000 sounds good, but doesnt sound fully committed to the idea (unlike his role in Drake's 'The Real Her' or Frank Ocean's 'Pink Matter'). 'Hold Me Back' is easily the most annoying song on the tape. Ross just repeats himself over and over again. The chorus is a copy of 'Actin Up' on self made vol 2 and the beat sounds recycled. The tape ends on a pretty bad stretch with 'Ice Cold', 'Touch'n You' & 'Diced Pineapples'. All songs try to be romantic, something that no one wants to hear from ross. I was pretty sick by the time i heard 'Diced Pineapples', because ross had mentioned licking a girl for the thrid time on the tape ('So Sophisticated' & 'tTouch'n You'). Wale (which is a completely different story) feels completely out of place on diced pineapples when trying to be romantic. Drake has a good hook and should have had a verse on the song (i guess ross didnt learn after drake released his excellent excluded verse for 'aston martin music'). And the only thing that 'ten jesus pieces' does is question why Stalley is on this album but not an explosive artist like Gunplay, who compliments Ross's style very well.

Overall, GFID isnt a bad album, but it is definitely not the "game changer" that Ross and his MMG crew claimed it to be.

Highlights: 'pirates', '3 kings', 'maybach music iv', 'sixteen', '911', 'presidential'
Lowlights: 'hold me back', 'so sophisticated', 'ice cold', 'touch'n you', 'diced pineapples'

sidenote: There is no point in buying the deluxe version because both songs were featured on his free mixtape "rich forever". Also, ross looks like a fool on the cover of the deluxe version.

Good stuff

Nice Rick amazing album

About Rick Ross

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 B.I.G., Roberts formed local rap group the Carol City Cartel and began rapping in the mid-'90s. (He took his rap name from Los Angeles drug kingpin "Freeway" Rick Ross, who ran one of the largest crack cocaine distribution networks in the country during the '80s and early '90s.) Ross had a brief stint on Suave House Records, former label of Eightball & MJG, before he ended up on Miami-based Slip 'N' Slide Records, the label home of Trick Daddy and Trina. During the early to mid-2000s, he became popular and well-known locally through touring with Trick Daddy and appearing as a guest on a few Slip 'N' Slide releases, but didn't release any solo material until 2006.

Once "Hustlin'" caught the ear of a few executives within the national industry, a bidding war ensued that included offers from Bad Boy CEO Sean "Diddy" Combs and The Inc (formerly Murder Inc) president Irv Gotti. Nonetheless, Def Jam president and veteran rapper Jay-Z signed Ross to a multi-million-dollar deal. The Miami anthem "Hustlin'" went on to receive gold status from the RIAA in May 2006 and sold over a million ringtone units before the physical release of his debut album, Port of Miami. Released in August 2006, Ross' debut was Slip 'N' Slide's first project under the Def Jam partnership, and it went to number one on the Billboard album chart. His follow-up, Trilla, was released the following year, prefaced with the Cool & Dre-produced title track. Early 2009 saw the release of Deeper Than Rap, an album greeted with numerous positive reviews in the hip-hop press. In early 2010 he released the Teflon Don album featuring the hit single "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)." The star-studded God Forgives, I Don't followed in 2012, with guest shots from Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige.

At the start of 2013, he announced details of his sixth studio album. He enlisted the help of Scott Storch and DJ Khaled as executive producers and released the pre-album single "No Games" featuring Future. The album, titled Mastermind, landed in March of 2014 with the simultaneous release of the single "War Ready" featuring Young Jeezy. Just six months later, Ross announced that he would be releasing his seventh studio album, Hood Billionaire, toward the end of 2014. The album arrived in November of that year and was preceded by the singles "Elvis Presley Blvd." and "Keep Doin' That (Rich Bitch)." In 2015, he dropped Black Dollar, a high-profile official mixtape that featured production from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and Jake One. The mixtape previewed that year's official album, Black Market, which landed late in the year, along with the accompanying single "Sorry" featuring Chris Brown. Future, Mary J. Blige, and Nas also made guest appearances on the LP.

In 2016, Ross appeared with electronic producer Skrillex on the Suicide Squad film soundtrack cut "Purple Lamborghini," which went on to receive a Grammy nomination for Best Song Written for Visual Media. The Maybach don returned the following year with his ninth set, Rather You Than Me, which featured lead singles "Buy Back the Block" with 2 Chainz and Gucci Mane and "I Think She Like Me" with Ty Dolla $ign. ~ Cyril Cordor
