Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is giving fans something to get excited about heading into 2012 by releasing the cover art to his upcoming Rich Forever mixtape.
Although the cover lacks a release date, it confirms DJ Scream and media personality Shaheem Reid will host.
Rick Ross reigns in red on the cover of his mixtape Rich Forever, dropping in the new year. Rozay sports a fur coat and his signature shades on the regal artwork. Hosted by DJ Scream and Shaheem Reid, the follow-up to 2010's Ashes to Ashes and The Albert Anastasia EP will feature all-new material and serve as a precursor to his upcoming fifth album God Forgives, I Don't.

The artwork comes days after Ross announced his mixtape's official title.

Placing health first after Ross suffered two seizures this fall, Def Jam Senior VP of Marketing Chris Atlas recently confirmed the label's decision to push back his God Forgives, I Don't LP from its original December 13th release.
"I think we're all aware of his recent health issue, and based on some of the minor setbacks with that, we weren't able to confirm certain opportunities, because he physically wasn't able to deal with certain things at the time," says Atlas. "We want this to be his biggest album -- we know it's going to be his biggest album -- so we did not want to pressure him into releasing an album based on the sake of a date." (Billboard)
