    It's a big project, but it never drags, overreaches, or stumbles; Ross rhymes throughout with so much power and economy that it just keeps barreling forward.

    It's a record that uses nastiness to cement the character "Rick Ross" as three-dimensional, and uses a barrage of bangers to cement the rapper Rick Ross as an undeniable force.

    With Rich Forever, Ross continues to cement his position as one of hip-hop's best artists.

    Rich Forever, the mixtape teaser for his forthcoming God Forgives, I Don't, is quite successful at doing nothing new at all.

    Ross remains monomaniacally focused on monetary matters, spinning punch line after punch line about luxury cars, dripping jewels and high-grade cocaine.

    Rich Forever doesn't boast any potential mega-hits. But that's actually a good reason to give this a spin; the songs here are strong without shooting for the stars.

    Counting cash – and stacks of it – seemingly continues to prove this rapper's primary concern, rather than a desire to significantly stretch the artform.

    Another MMG (Maybach Music Group) instant guilty pleasure. Wale, Meek Mill, Pill, and Ricky "Rozay" Ross make every trip to and from a concert hype time. Hell, Illuminati (single off Rich Forever) makes a trip to the grocery store super-hype time! I have only been listening to Rozay for a couple years now, but he is already at the top. When anyone at the top puts out free mix tapes like this, and they are of the same quality in a mix tape said rapper is of a special breed. Rick Ross is cut of the same cloth as Lil Wayne, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Tupac, Biggy, and all the other greats. I can not wait to hear what the MMG "Don" has in store for his fans next! Expand

    I loved this mixtape great wordplay and features such as Pharrell, Wale, Meek Mill. & Drake. I dont really like Rick Ross before this Mixtape but after i heard the whole thing it made me like Rick Ross alot. but it had some flaws like Off the boat French Didnt deliver. But other than that good tape Expand

    horrible album by a horrible artist. All the beats are nauseating along with repeating lyrics. If your into music like that good for you, but from a musical standpoint this is a disaster. Expand
