Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross has finally unveiled the release date for his upcoming God Forgives, I Don't solo album, promising to drop it before 2012.
Speaking with New York's Hot 97 radio host Funkmaster Flex, Ricky Rozay said fans can expect the LP to hit retail outlets around mid-December.
Rick Ross appeared on Funkmaster Flex's show on New York radio station Hot 97 earlier tonight (October 4) to drop off two new records from his forthcoming fifth solo album, God Forgives, I Don't. During the conversation, the October 2011 XXL cover boy, revealed a December 13 release date for his new disc and showed fans what they could expect to hear from the album. On "You the Boss," listeners hear Rozay rapping on a laid back, R&B flavored cut with Nicki Minaj singing the auto-tuned chorus. "I Love My B*tches" finds the Miami rapper spitting over a sped up sample chopped up by super producer Just Blaze. (XXL Mag)
A few weeks ago, Young Money rapper Drake hyped up Rozay's Teflon Don follow-up.
"This guy right here," Drake said motioning to Ross as the two sat at Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV release party Sunday, "That God Forgives I Don't; the only way I can describe it is like Doggystyle or Ready to Die or Clipse Lord Willin' or any of the albums that I collected and held on to as a kid -- whether it was cassette or CD."

Over the summer, Def Jam South president DJ Khaled labeled Ross' upcoming LP a predestined classic.
"God Forgives, I Don't is a classic-in-the-making. Let me tell you something right now: This album is so crazy from the beginning of what I've been in the studio hearing already," Khaled said in an interview.. "I can't give you too much because I'm going to let him do that, because that's his project, but I could tell you right now it's classic and he is talking that talk. God Forgives, I Don't, it fits the time because right now it's no rules. We don't see 'em; we going hard and that's what Ross is doin'." (MTV)
In January, the "Boss" announced plans to drop God Forgives, I Don't as the follow-up to 2010's Teflon Don.
"I'm in Swisher Studios right now working on my new project," Ross told Power 105.1 radio hosts DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee. "50 percent of the album [is] already [done]. This is the first time I'm revealing it, but the name of the album is God Forgives, I Don't...One of the records that I excluded off the [Ashes To Ashes] mixtape was 'Made Men' featuring the homie Drake. I wanted to put some final touches on it and I wanted to give you the opportunity to bless the world with that." (Power 105.1)
