Rick Ross” new album “Mastermind” is now streaming in full on iTunes – in advance of its March 4 release date – and you can skip directly to his much-hyped Kanye West collaboration below.
“Sanctified” reunites Ross and West after their “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” single “Monster.” It also marks West”s first guest appearance on a song in two years and his first new music since “Yeezus.”
The track opens with a signature West soul sample, aided by co-producer DJ Mustard, and moves through rock piano and rattling bass before it”s through.
Big Sean kicks it off, but West quickly takes over with a savage flow that compares champagne to holy water and reveals “fornicatin”” with groupies. He ends his verse with a line that”s pure Ye: “God sent me a message, said I'm too aggressive / Really!? Me!? Too aggressive!?” Ross comes in at the three-minute mark with his typical themes of chasing sex, drugs and cash.
Do you think that Kanye West steals the show on “Sanctified”?
