MTV has claimed this man as the “Hottest MC In The Game”. Does Ricky Rozay live up to that name? From hopping on countless records to dropping some banger street tracks, find out how Ross ends up on Flop City after the jump. God Forgives, But Quake don’t.
Before I start with the slander, I would like to congratulate Rick Ross for avoiding Flop City for quite some time now. In 2011 he might not have dropped an album, but he sure as hell had a hot summer with his crew MMG. Not only did he manage to build up Wale to sell very well but he also got some major buzz for the kid Meek Mill, back when T.I. couldn’t. Now that I’m done with the rewarding it’s time to explain as to why this fat piece of sh*t couldn’t possibly avoid Flop City this year.
We start out in late 2011 when Rick Ross started dissing Young Jeezy about his album never getting a release date and him dropping his 2 singles “You The Boss” featuring Nicki Minaj & “I Love My B*tches”. First off the whole Jeezy dissing was a really bad move on Rozay’s part. Not only did Jeezy slap Rick Ross in the face by dropping his album TM:103, but he out sold Rick Ross in any 1st week numbers that Rick Ross has done, yeah check the stats Rick Ross has never sold over 200k 1st week. After Jeezy dropped his album and gained some buzz, Roazy’s album “God Forgives, I Don’t” got pushed back and never saw another release date for awhile. Now that wasn’t just because of Jeezy, it was for the fact that his 2 singles “You The Boss” which featured the one of the biggest artists in the game Nicki Minaj flopped and “I Love My B*tches” who was produced by the big named producer Just Blaze also flopped. I don’t understand how you flop when you have two big people on both tracks.
Now fast forwarding a little bit to MTV’s 2012 Hottest MC’s In The Game. Rick Ross manages to pull the #1 spot for Hottest MC. This is a pretty good look, but ask yourself how does he even deserve this spot? after flopping with his singles and not even dropping an album in 2011 Rozay still got #1. MTV pretty much based it off of what MMG did and not Rick Ross alone, which doesn’t mean sh*t if you ask me.
We hit 2012 and Rick Ross has promised all these months that it will be a hot year not only for him but for his MMG team too. I can believe Meek Mill pulling off a hot summer but Rick Ross hasn’t provided us with anything “Hot” yet. He supplies us with 2 new singles again this time “So Sophisticated” featuring his MMG Member Meek Mill and “Touch N’ You” featuring Usher. Once again he has two hot features on these singles and none of them are even buzzing. “Touch N’ You” features one of the biggest names in Pop “Usher” and it still hasn’t managed to gain any radio play. I don’t know how you fail with Usher, I can’t really name anyone that’s failed with Usher, even Jeezy pulled off a hit with Usher. It’s a shame that the “Hottest MC In The Game” can’t even get some buzz going.
Now for the bottom line. Rick Ross has flopped with 4 singles and I don’t see him dropping his album July 31st, even if he does it won’t push anything more than 150k. If it manages to push over 200k 1st week it will be because of the MMG momentum not Rick Ross. I would also like to say that Rick Ross hasn’t pulled off a Platinum album in his whole career so far. Now for the hottest MC to not even have a platinum album after 6 years of being in the game (mainstream wise) that’s very sad, hell even Soulja Boy managed to pull a platinum album with his debut. It’s sad that this guy is even being compared to 50 Cent who has done Rozay’s whole career about 10x over with just his debut album. The hype around Rick Ross is just hype, nothing more. If you want proof just look at all his singles, he constantly has features on them, he can’t make hits by himself at all. The only time he pulled off a hit by himself was with his debut album. I won’t be surprised if Meek Mill pulls a platinum album before Rick Ross. Overall I think this fat piece of sh*t doesn’t deserve the hype he’s getting, I think it should be going to some other artist that actually deserves it and until Rick Ross manages to go at least double platinum I won’t care for him at all and remember folks this isn’t me hating, this is all facts, go ahead a search it up, I don’t “hate” I just state facts.
