Rick Ross and his band of brothers cover the next issue of XXL.
Ross and his new team of young MCs are focused on taking over the rap game in the coming year, and The Bawse—who is hard at work on his fifth solo disc, God Forgives, I Don’t, scheduled to drop via Def Jam Recordings this fall—predicts to XXL contributing writer Ben Detrick that with the new LP, he’ll finally be crowned king.
“I’m enjoying my last few moments at No. 2,” Ross says. “It’s like I’m watching the No. 1 man on stage, my legs crossed, I’m smoking big, hollering at the bitches in the crowd. And this album gonna do it. I got the formula.”
