Editorial Reviews

Deluxe edition includes two bonus tracks. Long awaited 2012 release from the Hip Hop heavyweight. Rick Ross (AKA Rozay) earned respect the hard way by ruling Miami's underground Rap scene, and then came out of the shadows to make the three biggest scores of his career: when his first three albums all entered the Soundscan chart at #1 in 2006 (Port Of Miami), 2008 (Trilla), and 2009 (Deeper Than Rap). God Forgives, I Don't includes production from Just Blaze, Lex Luger, The JU.S.T.I.CE. League. In addition, an all-star lineup of guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake and the Maybach Music Group team (Meek Mill, Wale, Omanon, Stalley).

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and Miss August 2, 2012
By Justin
Format:Audio CD
Rick Ross has become one of the most popular MC's over his career thus far; creating the Maybach Music 'empire' and putting out a numerous amount of Hip/Hop 'bangers.' Ross' fifth album has some bright spots and some generic spots, which blends in well with current rap as a whole (unfortunately).

The most hyped cut off the "God Forgives, I Don't" album is "3 Kings", featuring Dr. Dre and Jay-Z. This track had insurmountable hype, considering Ross had two Hip/Hop legends spitting verses by his side. With that being said, "3 Kings" didn't live up to the hype. Dr. Dre spits a verse that isn't anything out of the ordinary, simply because it was ghost-written; the same thing goes with HOV on an effort level. Jay-Z is notorious as being one of the greats and putting out classics, but his verse comes off as nothing more than a recycled freestyle with an arrogant kick. Ross & Jay-Z's bars are both decent, while Dre disappoints. Call me critical, but I was expecting more out of these three MC's for a reason.

Leaving off on that note, the other notable singles off Ross' album are "So Sophisticated" featuring Meek Mill; "Touch'n You" featuring Usher; lastly, "Hold Me Back." The beat on "So Sophisticated" does justice to Meek's 'smash-mouth', 'scream first' style, but that is the best thing about it. Ross outshines the hyped young MC with his verse's but it's just another Maybach 'banger'. "Touch'n You" is on the more 'sleek' side, complemented by Usher. The songs bars and vocals resemble Usher's & Ross' cut on "Looking 4 Myself", so it's a bit too similar to that. The song is something you could kick back to and enjoy; but while enjoyable, it's also a try-hard attempt at a single.

4.0 out of 5 stars "THESE HATERS CAN'T HOLD ME BACK" June 6, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What is it about Rick Ross that keeps him around? Five years ago I would have never brought a Rick Ross album. But each album he impresses me a little bit more. The first album I brought was "Deeper Than Rap", and aside from a couple bangers, there was no substance, like eating a Twinkie for dinner and my stomach was hurting by time I got to track seven. Now with "God Forgives, I Don't", Rozay has morphed into something we haven't seen from him ever. He still flashing money talking about his riches, but now we find out a little about where he came from. We find out who Rick Ross was before the fame. With each album he has improved and shown the growth needed to survive in this fast hip hop world. He has the type of charisma we haven't seen in since B.I.G. Matter of fact when I heard "God Forgives, I Don't", I instantly thought of "Life After Death". That album showed a much softer B.I.G but also keep his street edge. To some that might seem like a stretch. But listen to both albums front to back and you will see what I mean.

I like the direction Rick Ross has taken with this album. This is his most personal album to date. Even the vibe on his signature "Maybach Music IV" is softer than usual with Ne-Yo on the hook. His "Maybach Music" series is usually the highlights of his albums. It still plays like a movie but this one is solid not epic. The melodic "Sixteen" is the realest I ever seen Rick Ross. Over a smooth J.U.S.T.I.C.E League beat, Ross lays out his feelings and closes out with a strong 32 from Mr. Andre Benjamin. The song might be over 8 minutes long but the groove is fantastic. He continues the flow on the Wale and Drake assisted "Diced Pineapples" which uses a very smooth piano loop to set the mood.

I never thought I would see the day when I would give a Rick Ross album this high of a score. All of his albums have been decent at best. What separates this album is that Rick Ross has stepped his lyrical game up a bit. Not by much, but you can see there is some improvement. Better song concepts as well as good guest appearances, and you have a pretty good album. Tracks like "Shameless" and "Maybach Music IV" are pretty good (although my favorite out of the Maybach Music Series is the second one with Lil Wayne, Kanye, and T-Pain). Although Ross tries to hang with Andre 3000, "Sixteen" only irate Outkast fans of why Andre doesn't have a solo album. "Hold Me Back" is probably one of the best Ross solo to be released in a while. Towards the end of the album, he makes a few female friendly songs with the R&B singer hooks. The best one would have to be "Diced Pineapples" featuring Wale and Drake.

Still there are a few missteps on the album. Obviously with the guest appearances on "3 Kings" could have came off a little better, but Dr. Dre uses his verse to advertise his Beats By Dre Headphones, while Jay-Z's freestyle verse is like whatever. Also with the female friendly tracks placed at the end bunched together could have been thought out better when it comes to placement. Purchasing the Deluxe Version of this album is pretty much irrelevant. Both songs are good (Nas destroys "Triple Beam Dreams") but they were on the Rich Forever mixtape which you can download for free.

Overall this album shows that Rick Ross stepped it up. Although he is not quite there in the lyrical department, if you are expecting the average topics that Ross raps about (hustlin', drugs, getting rich, etc), there is a little more here this time around. Production carries a good portion of the album as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst and most overrated rappers out there
Rick Ross is supremely overrated, hes a fake and its a shock that he's still relevant since 50cent exposed him to being a fake. Hes a one dimensional rapper and this album is weak.
