    On what is his tenth studio album, he proves why he’s achieved such longevity in the fickle game that is rap. Tracks such as 'Turnpike Ike' showcase the four-time Grammy nominee at his very best, while his willingness to delve into topics outside of his luxurious lifestyle add a depth and gravitas to the record that make it a worthy successor to the original thirteen years on.

    Frequent serious references to mortality make Port of Miami 2 his heaviest recording.

    Port Of Miami is just better than Port Of Miami 2. ... This album is solid, not spectacular. ... This album’s in the middle. It’s something that shouldn’t be regarded as offensive to ears or must listen. It’s satisfactory. It’s great if you need another fix of Ross. It’s completely fine to skip if you don’t.

    Too often on Port of Miami 2, he locks into the flow of least resistance and simply lets it ride, hiding behind his production instead of asserting his dominion over it. And while his music remains sumptuous as always, that luster alone is no longer enough to wow.

    Most of his 10th album, Port of Miami 2, is Ross exactly as you know and love him: the obscene boasts, the window-cracking bass, the speedboat cool, the various spins on raps-to-riches success.

    While the beginning of the album struggles, you’ll be hard pushed to find a five-song stretch as flawless as the close out tracks on Ross’ 10th studio album.

    Port of Miami 2 further cements Ross as a mainstay among the aging elite—those rappers whose names now carry them further than their music does. Playing it safe with the sequel to his far more ambitious debut LP, Ross regurgitates that which people have come to love from him, or at least have accepted as his standard.

    I’ve long been a Rick Ross fan but have to admit that his last few albums haven’t exactly hit the spot ... until now. Port of Miami 2 doesn’tI’ve long been a Rick Ross fan but have to admit that his last few albums haven’t exactly hit the spot ... until now. Port of Miami 2 doesn’t feel like a sequel to Port of Miami so much as a sequel to Rich Forever which I still have on high rotation - every bit as good as Deeper Than Rap and Teflon Don. The Bawse isn’t just coasting. The production is inventive - there is even a semi-reggae feel to one track - and there are a number of tracks with added female vocals which remind me of Mine Games with Kelly Rowland on Rich Forever. So great to hear Rick Ross at his best again. Expand

    The bawse is back with a star studded and epic soundtrack like album that highlight histoire bravade and ear for beats.
