Believe it or not, we’re just days away from the release of Rick Ross’ sixth album, Mastermind.
Thus far we’ve – technically and legally – heard three songs: “Devil Is A Lie,” “War Ready” and most recently “Nobody.” “Devil Is A Lie” gave us the best Hov verse in a while, but ultimately didn’t move the needle much, “War Ready” was a talking point but a forgettable song and “Nobody” was just about as close to Hip-Hop blasphemy as you can get.* Deciding to offer his own spin on a song so important to the mythos of Christopher Wallace was an iffy move, even with the Puffy co-sign.
Ross follows up the release of the song (and “unauthorized” video soon after) with a visual for the track, seemingly making it the official single for Mastermind.
Mastermind is in stores March 4th – technically and legally.
