  1. Deeper provides more of the same flawless sonics, with production contributions from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, the Runners, and DJ Toomp, and guest spots from Kanye West, Nas, and Lil Wayne. Amazingly, Ross himself has become less of an embarrassment on the mic.
  2. Deeper Than Rap is a single-minded record about making money off of drugs and nothing more. You could do a lot better than Rick Ross, but you could also do a lot worse.
  3. Ross' player's paradise can be a very nice place to visit--outfitted with a cushy synth groove and a strenuous T-Pain chorus, the Kanye West- and Lil Wayne-assisted 'Maybach Music 2' manages to be both triumphant and laid-back--but over the length of a full album it all feels a bit too familiar.
