13 years after his debut album, Port Of Miami, Rick Ross has unleashed a sequel.
Port Of Miami 2 spans 15 tracks and is filled with features from Drake, Wale, Meek Mill, and more. Maybe most notable is a verse from Nipsey Hussle, The GRAMMY-nominated MC who had his life tragically cut short earlier this year.
On “Rich N**** Lifestyle”, Hussle does some luxury flexing and continues to rap about the self-made spirit that made him such an important performer and community member.
“Ain't a real street n**** unless you got a code. Mine’s one comma n****, followed by a lot of O's” he raps on the soul-sampling track. “Rap music on the charts like it's rock and roll. Add something to the art, make a lot of dope. Gotta play my part from the start cause that's all I know, double M's, double R's, n****, all I roll.”
WARNING: The following song is unedited and contains profanity
The song is a reminder of the tight flow and immense talent of Nipsey. It’s also already gaining notoriety for a shot Hussle takes at embattled rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.
“I can't name a fake n**** that was not exposed, how y'all n***** so surprised that Tekashi told?” he fires off about the plea deal the rapper worked out, allegedly sharing information about co-defendants for a lesser charge.
Elsewhere on Port Of Miami 2, Ross references the infamous interview from Kanye West about his support for President Donald Trump.
“Watching Kanye interview, feel like I wanna cry for every innocent brother charged with a homicide,” Ross raps on “Vegas Residency.”
“Went from battle raps to now we wearing MAGA Hats, Dade County n****, mansions up in Tamarac,” he continues over a piano-based beat. “Never golfing with the Trumps and I give you my word, back to coming out the trunk, charging 20 a bird.”
Port Of Miami 2 is the tenth studio album from Rick Ross, and is now available everywhere.
