Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is giving fans a reason to get excited about his delayed Mastermind solo album after announcing fellow hip-hop star Diddy’s involvement on the project.
Although brief with the details, Ricky Rozay revealed Puffy would provide some in-studio help with the LP.
“Sitting at the SSL board #Mastermind on repeat.. album mixed by Sean Diddy Combs.,” Ross tweeted January 10. (Rick Ross’ Twitter)
Last month, the “Bawse” promised his latest solo offering would arrive in 2014.
“It’s coming soon. Top of the year. Yeah. I still got to put a few details into it. I got to. Everybody will thank me later. [Guest features?] Bobby Womack. I collaborated with the legendary Bobby Womack. I got in the studio with a few people, man, just to do a lot of different things and it’s gonna be some dope sh*t.” (Rap-Up)
Ross recently raised eyebrows after revealing his LP would not make its previously scheduled mid-December drop date.
Rick Ross’ ‘Mastermind’ album was initially set to drop this year on Dec. 17, but the Bawse shares that he’s pushing the album back to a date that hasn’t been revealed. During an interview with DJ Scream on SiriusXM’s ‘Hip-Hop Nation,’ the rapper tells DJ Scream why he chose to delay the project. “I’m still putting the final touches on the album,” he shares. “You know me, making that classic is more important than anything. Making sure the streets are overwhelmed with what I am doing is what is most important. I’m gonna try to get it to you, and if I don’t, I’ll get it to you ASAP.” Ross released the song ‘No Games’ as the lead-in for the project, which serves as the follow-up to 2012’s ‘ God Forgives, I Don’t.’ (The Boom Box)
The South Beach rapper also recently admitted soul lovers would be able to embrace his upcoming effort.
“To me, a mastermind is one who is on a path to accomplishing whatever it is he set out to accomplish,” The Maybach Music leader stated. “When you hit that mark and you hit it the way you wanted to hit it, you executed that properly.” When discussing the album, Rozay states that the album is going to be what the streets want and is composed of content from what he has recently experienced. “In the last year you know I seen some things, I been through somethings, so you going to feel that passion and that aggression. You know certain things that’s getting addressed in the records and I think the streets going to really love this,” Ross discloses. While Mastermind will feed the ear of the streets, it will also contain a soulful side to the album as Ross states “the soulful side of, you know, the album I’m putting final touches on a particular record that I’m hoping to get Bobby Womack on.” (Karen Civil TV)
