iTunes Review

With “Hustlin,’” Rick Ross crafted a summer anthem in the classic mold. Its shambling bounce and gleefully profane church organ roar balance sun drenched menace against teeth gritting aspiration to gorgeous effect, mixing joy with sorrow and good-humored braggadocio with a pose of hard bitten criminality. Luckily for Ross, whose comically listless delivery and monochrome flow pose no threat to the likes of Jay-Z and Nas, Def Jam has outfitted Port of Miami with outrageously plush synth-driven beats redolent of the sleazy neon sheen of Ross’s Miami home. Though Ross might flounder in a different context, Port of Miami’s glossy soundscapes lend a weird gravitas to his monotonous baritone. His molasses slow delivery thrives amongst Miami’s showy synthesizers and plasticene Moroder samples, his booming baritone ideally complementing the portentous bass drops of tracks like “White House” and “Boss.” On Port of Miami Rick Ross takes a gamble, eschewing virtuosity for the booming charisma of his authoritative voice and the irresistible sheen of glistening beats. Thanks to stand out moments like “Push It” and the fantastic “Hustlin’,” the gamble pays off.

Customer Reviews

One of the best albums I've heard

If theres one album to buy this month, Port of Miami is worth spending your money. Album is crazy from Push It all the way down to Prayer and for all you who only hang with the beats, trust me get your neck brace ready cause you gonna break your neck after countless hours of repeatin the CD. Akon came out to produce a track similar to Obie Trice's Snitch, but you won't mind cause the song is too good to ignore. He even remixed Hustlin and got Young Jeezy and President Carter(Jay-Z for anyone lost) to lay verses on a already hot song. Rick is slick with the rhymes and often more than you expected then from today's artest(i.e. Franchise Boyz). Keep your ears Listnin cause they gonna like this. Rick Ross: Port of Miami.

More mindless rap laced over club anthems.

The only reason why this gets 2 stars rather than 1 is because Jay-Z flows on the Hustlin Remix. He is the only highlight of this rather cookie cutter "i got money cars and hoes" album. The album is not TERRIBLE its just that this sounds like every other album that gets air play now. Same type of club anthem beat, etc. I wouldnt mind it as much if they put music like this into a different category. Lyrically artists like these are a dime a dozen. Anyone can rap some simple simon type flow over a deep club anthem type beat, therefore this to me is not hip hop and does not impress me. Go check out someone l ike One B Low, Aceyalone, Apathy, etc. Those cats actually weave magic with thier rymes and lyrics. this album is just more of the same "boom bomb, look at me, sittin on 24's got all the hoez, im the best , I have the most money, im runnin thangs" type crap. Hip hop isnt even hip hop anymore, its commercialized BS.

No No No

Man whatever happend to good hip hop. This is just anouther "Mainstream ablum". For real im getting tired off all these new faces just coming out with some corney singles and then ya never here from them again. You have itunes do some research on hip-hop and check it out. Everybody will disagree with what i say and say that my opinion wasnt helpful. but just give the music a chance and check it out Check out the Bay AREA and check the West Coast as well as the stuff coming out of the East!! IT AINT ALL ABOUT THE SOUTH AND ATLANTA
