Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is keeping his chart-topping Mastermind album promotion in full effect with the new music video release of "Devil Is A Lie."
Despite Jay Z being featured on the track, Young Hov does not appear in the visual.
Months after releasing the song, Rick Ross finally drops a video for his Mastermind single "Devil Is a Lie." While Jay Z does not appear in the explosive clip, the MMG mogul holds his own, spitting the truth in front of a bonfire before driving off in a chauffeured vehicle. He even captions his lyrics for his international fans. (Rap-Up)
Late last year, Ricky Rozay dished on teaming up with Jigga.
"When me and Jay Z are in the studio, it's not just the beat on loop. We talkin' some sh*t. We talkin' some sh*t n*gga. After you make a record as big as 'YouKnowItGotIt,' it has to be on that level up and I feel that's what this record is. It's a dope record. 'Devil Is A Lie.' K.E. On The Track. You know, it's another one of them records, you know what I'm saying? 6-0, 7-0 on the joints. It's for the streets. It's the flows, it's the bounce, it's how current and relevant the music is. I think that's what's important when you're sculpting an entire body of work. Everybody around the world embracing this movement, we love you. MMG for life. Mastermind on the way." ("Mastermind Sessions, Vol. 1")
The track officially premiered online mid-December.
Bey and Hov are a true power couple -- just a few days after Beyonce dropped her new record in the dead of night, Jay Z and Rick Ross are out with a new K.E.-produced single "The Devil Is A Lie," off Ross' upcoming LP, Mastermind. After teasing the hell out of the collab on Twitter Thursday (December 19), Rozay dropped the song via SoundCloud this afternoon, along with a tweet teasing Mastermind reading: "Mastermind on the way." The track is a true tour de force: frenzied, studded with horns and driving drum machines, with both Barneys and Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse getting shoutouts. (MTV)
Ricky Rozay recently congratulated himself and thanked fans for making his latest LP the nation's number one album.
"Still hustlin. #1 toast to my fans..... @belairerose http://mastermindgr.am/5IA," Rozay tweeted March 11.
