Rick Ross To Release Jay Z-Assisted Single Off "Mastermind"
“I got the concert coming. The album, December 17. I’m releasing a new record myself. Jay Z, top of next month. We following up with the one that the streets really appreciate right now. So, we doing it big,” said the Maybach Music Group founder.
Ross’ upcoming single doesn’t serve as the first time the two rap Titans have collaborated on a record together. On Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, Ross appears on the Timbaland and Boi-1da-produced "FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt." Both rappers also appear together on the God Forgives, I Don’t record, “3 Kings,” a song that also features Dr. Dre.
The MMG helmsman didn’t reveal the name of his upcoming single with Jay Z, but did offer some insight into the title of his new album.
“It’s all about coming from wherever you come from and take it wherever you want to go to,” said Ross. “And the minute you do that that’s when you can consider yourself a mastermind.”
Ross’ interview with HOT 97 comes just weeks after the Floridian emcee released an album trailer for Mastermind. In the album trailer, which lasts a little over two minutes, various video clips of the rapper along with video snippets from a number of newsworthy events from the past can be seen.
Mastermind is currently scheduled for release on December 17. Ross’ currently untitled record with Jay Z will serve as the album’s second single. The first Mastermind single, “No Games,” was released last month.
