I’m just going to come right out and say it. For Rick Ross* to have his own solo (hilariously/aptly-titled) outing on the Rich Gang project, “50 Plates” was pretty damn underwhelming. Here I was expecting for something more along the lines of “National Champs” and what results is exactly the opposite. What’s head scratching is, The Fat Man can string together impressive verses when motivated – see “Oil Money Gang.” I’m guessing 50 plates of succulent crab meats drowned in melted butter from across the world weren’t around to entice him this time around. Dah well.
We still don’t know exactly who or what Rich Gang is but they have a lot of familiar, famous friends. Besides Ross, two other tracks sprang forth: “100 Favors” featuring Kendrick and “We Been On” with R. Kelly and Lil Wayne.
Still, we’re holding out hope for a Lil Twist bonus track to show up once the full project hits stores on July 23.
