Back in 2008, Birdman and Rick Ross connected for a few days in the studio together. The end result was a handful of records recorded, but never released to public…..until NOW. Rozay and Birdman opened up the vault exclusively with the team over at DatPiff to share with the world. ENJOY!
Birdman & Rick Ross – The H (The Lost Album Volume 1)
Former Reebok endorser Rick Ross should probably take notes on this one. In promotion for the good kid, m.A.A.d city Tour, the Black Hippy crew decided to unleash a wild freestyle over U.O.E.N.O beat that tops any remix of the track I’ve heard thus far. Check the video up top to see the squad pal around with Mac Miller and grab the download below!
Whenever there’s a sports reference in a song it’s a good day in hip-hop. Mack Maine enlists the help of Ace Hood, French Montana, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, and DJ Khaled (unfortunately) for “Kobe Or Ginobili” remix. This is a star-studded remix that is meant to be played at extremely loud volumes. They compare their money and power to the NBA stars’ basketball skills. You can listen to the record below.

French Montana enlists Rick Ross, Mavado, DJ Khaled & Wale to guest on the remix to “Freaks”, his single with Nicki Minaj. If you’re still mad at Ross you gotta get the fuck over it, because he’s not going anywhere. McDonald’s endorsement soon to come.

John Legend just gave us a taste of what’s to come with his new single, “The Beginning”, but he’s already giving us another from his upcoming album. Check out the brand new single, “Who Do We Think We Are”, featuring none other than the Teflon Don himself, Rick Ross. So smooth!

Following the radio success of the original, Rihanna has released a star-studded remix of her single “Pour It Up”. Featuring new verses from Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Juicy J, and T.I., the track boasts a lot of luxury life talk and next to nothing else. This shiny, but ultimately empty remix is for people who thought the original wasn’t vapid enough, and comes complete with additional bass lines for those who are not impressed with big names pontificating about their personal wealth. You can stream the remix to “Pour It Up” below.

Much like last year, football’s most anticipated weekend finds Spitta prepping a new project for the pot-loving masses. New Jet City drops Super Sunday, likely before kickoff, but today Spit Vicious calls an audible letting loose a star studded collaboration alongside bong brother Wiz Khalifa and the man we apparently almost lost Monday morning, Rick Ross.
Now that the mixtapes have run their course, Tyga unveils new visuals for “Dope”, the first single from his forthcoming album Hotel California. The track interpolates patented gentleman’s club friendly hi-hat and synths the YMCMB rapper is known for with the bass line and chords used on Dr. Dre and Snoop’s “Deep Cover,” giving it that straight West Coast sound.
Juelz Santana makes his return to music with some pretty heavy features in Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and Fabolous. Unfortunately, it seems as though Juelz has conformed to the current hip hop style & sound, something I was looking forward to a break from. God Will’n drops January 14th.

This week 50 Cent joked about French Montana and his music career, dubbing him the “new Ja Rule”. Yesterday, as more interview footage surfaces with 50 while he is on his full promo tip, he revealed that he knew French Montana for awhile, during his DVD days.
While talking to Big Boy on Power 106, 50 was asked what his relationship was like with French prior to his success, “I ran into him a few times, he was like a DVD dude. He would come and shoot DVD’s and stuff (as the camera person). You could tell he always wanted to be an artist, or be a part of being seen,” 50 said.
Fif goes on to reveal that during the period of time he was beefing with MMG boss Rick Ross, the Bad Boy rapper actually helped him by selling out DJ Khaled and giving him the tape of footage from Khaled’s mother’s house which he released in 2009. “When I got into it with Rick Ross and Khaled, I saw Khaled at the BET Awards when that happened, but I don’t actually remember seeing Ross, that sparked his interest or the things he said on his record to start. But I think that’s a part of hip hop, where a new artist attacks an established artist in order to generate the interest. That happened, I didn’t know who Rick Ross was, so I had to take a look. I do my homework, I find somebody who know somebody, that can give me some information, like who is. Frenchie, they got me the tape of his mother’s house, where his mom’s work at, the other cribs, the studios [Khaled's tape]. I ain’t taking no L’s”.
Watch the interview with Fif below. As well in the second video 50 talks on addressing Game on “My Life”, and says he has “no malice” for the rapper, although he thinks his career is done.
