Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross has reacted to his long-awaited God Forgives, I Don’t album prematurely landing online a full week before it hits retailers.
Rather than blast his record label or make accusations to who leaked the LP, Ross simply asked fans to still support his newest solo effort next week.
“#GFID out there so vibe to it..enjoy it..buy it Tuesday!!!,” he tweeted July 25th.
“Change your Avi in anticipation of Official Release on July 31. #GFID Classic”

Prior to the entire project leaking, only a few God Forgives, I Don’t records hit the Internet.
Less than a week before the release of Rick Ross’ “God Forgives, I Don’t” album (July 31), two singles from the effort leak: “Diced Pineapples” and “Sixteen.” “Diced Pineapples,” produced by The Cataracs, is a smooth joint, features Wale and Drake. Wale, known to spit just the right words to the ladies, opens one of the album’s most anticipated songs. Ross’ rhymes about the taste and touch of his own leading lady, reminiscent of pineapples of course, before and after, Aubrey comes in for the hook. (Billboard)
Earlier this month, the “Boss” talked about securing rap moguls Jay-Z and Dr. Dre for their “3 Kings” collaboration.
“I just collaborated with people I was a huge fan of such as Dr. Dre for the first time,” Ross said in an interview with radio host Bootleg Kev. “And Dr. Dre and Jay-Z on the same record by the name of ‘Three Kings.’ Just witnessing that being in the studio with both of them dudes, man, it was a h*ll of an experience. It was just something I could never really see happening. On a personal level, that was big for me. Of course the record I did by the name of ’16’ featuring Andre . It’s a classic. It’s a classic.” (“The Bootleg Kev Show”)
