    No thanks; decent guest spots and beats overshadowed by Ross' complete lack of lyrical coherence.

    For the most part ross always has a good album he tells it like it is in the real world.

    While Rick Ross isn't the best southern rapper around...what rescues this album is the producers on display, and the good assortment of guest stars.

    Awesome southern rap album. Luxury Tax, Maybach Music and the Boss are instant bangers.

    No, Jarvis T., this is not a classic. This is bad lyiricism with OK beats. The guests don't help either. If you want good southern hip hop try OutKast. Heck, even Lil Wayne is better than this.

  1. The huge guest list is also a plus since Ross would have a hard time carrying this album on his own, but when surrounded by talent he pushes a little harder and comes up with a handful of rhymes that aren't tired or clichéd.

    On album two, his focus switches from coke to cash as he booms about his fleet of Maybachs (on the soaring T-Pain synthfest 'The Boss') and prepaying his baby daughter’s college tuition.
  3. There are too many throwaway songs and guests (Nelly?), but Ross can still expose all the thrills of Miami vice.
