Bossing up once again like only he can, Rick Ross proudly presents his anxiously awaited eleventh full-length album, Richer Than I Ever Been [Maybach Music Group/Epic Records], today.

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

To celebrate the record’s arrival, he just unleashed the music video for the single “Outlawz” [feat. Jazmine Sullivan & 21 Savage].

 

Rick Ross sits down with, Rap Radar Founder and C.E.O Elliot Wilson and B- Dot for a downright legendary conversation about Richer Than I Ever Been and more on the floor at half-court in FTX Arena where the Miami Heat play. This marks the first time an interview of this magnitude has ever been conducted in the arena, and only Rozay could pull it off. Watch the trailer HERE!

Casting a shadow over rap, he has taken over the culture this week. Ross Billboards lorded over Miami, Atlanta, and various cities emblazoned with lyrics from Richer Than I Ever Been and indispensable financial advice from his second New York Times best-selling book, The Perfect Day To Boss Up.

On Wednesday, he hosted a sold-out conversation at the GRAsxxsMMY® Museum in Los Angeles. This afternoon, he sits down for an interview with The Real. While tonight, he will hit the stage at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a showstopping performance of ‘Outlawz” alongside Jazmine Sullivan. Be sure to tune in!

Ross amplified excitement for the album with “Little Havana” [feat. Willie Falcon & The-Dream].

Richer Than I Ever Been oozes the kind of diamond-encrusted lyrical opulence that made him one of the greatest of this generation. “The Pulitzer” lives up to its title with braggadocious bars and the proclamation, “I got a prize motherfucker, it’s The Pulitzer.A sample of jazz-y horns gives way to a ruthless rap masterclass on “Rapper Estates” [feat. Benny The Butcher]. On the other end of the spectrum, ominous keys glow on “Made It Out Alive” [feat. BLXST], which leans on a 21st century West Coast chorus in between vulnerable verses. Then, there’s “War Words in a Cold World” [feat. Wale & Future]. Ross devours the head-nodding beat before Wale and Future make stunning cameos of their own. The title track “Richer Than I Ever Been” encapsulates the rap superstar’s message.

Check out the full tracklisting below:

The album represents a full circle moment for the rap icon. It embodies a new level of excitement for his artistry and life itself. He redefines RICH as far more than money, but more importantly, happiness, health, family, self-reflection, and growth. You can hear it loud and clear on the album.

British artists triumph at 2023 Grammy Awards

British artists triumph at 2023 Grammy Awards

Billed as “music’s biggest night”, the Grammys are the industry’s most prestigious awards.

Sunday’s show was attended by Adele, Taylor Swift, Jay-Z Shania Twain and Stevie Wonder, with performances from Lizzo, Steve Lacy and Brandi Carlile.

British artists had a good night, with indie duo Wet Leg winning two prizes, including best alternative album; and Sam Smith receiving best pop duo/group performance for Unholy, a duet with Kim Petras.

Smith’s prize was their first Grammy since 2015, when they won four trophies, including best new artist.

However, the singer let Petras take the microphone to mark another historical achievement.

“Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I’m the first transgender woman to win this award,” said the German-born singer.

She went on to thank the late, transgender pop artist Sophie for “kicking these doors open”, and Madonna “for fighting for LGBTQ rights”, before dedicating the award to her mother.

“I grew up next to nowhere in Germany and my mother believed me, that I was a girl,” she said, as Smith looked on with pride. “I wouldn’t be here without her and her support.”

The duo later gave a sultry, BDSM-inspired performance of their ode to infidelity, introduced by Madonna.

“If they call you shocking, scandalous, troublesome, problematic, provocative, or dangerous you’re definitely onto something,” said the star.

Adele also won best pop vocal performance for Easy On Me, dedicating the prize to her son Angelo. This was her 18 Grammy award.

The singer told the audience she had written the first verse “in the shower when I was choosing to change my son’s life”, by divorcing her then-husband, Simon Konecki.

She added: “I love a piano ballad winning any kind of award because it’s very old school and very brave.”

This year, Harry Styles took the crown, with Grammy voters recognising the slick, radio-friendly pop of his third record Harry’s House.

In his speech, the British star downplayed the importance of the prize.

“On nights like tonight, it’s obviously so important for us to remember that there is no such thing as best in music,” said the singer.

“I don’t think any of us sit in the studio, making decisions based on what is going to get us one of these.”

However, he was visibly moved by the honour, adding: “This doesn’t happen to people like me very often, and this is so, so nice.”

Earlier in the night, the star also won best pop album – receiving his award with a kiss from Jennifer Lopez.

“This album from start to finish has been the greatest experience of my life,” he said. “From making it with two of my best friends to playing for people has been the greatest joy I could have asked for.”
