Vinyl LP pressing. 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).

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. "Ten Jesus Pieces" is a completely reflective track that reads like a prayer to every gangsta on the street. Just when you think Rick Ross has gone completely soft, he comes back hard with the bangers "Hold Me Back" & "911". Even filler songs like "Amsterdam" & "So Sophisticated" work extremely well. The number one gem on this album has to be the Dr. Dre and Jay-Z assisted "Three Kings". Jake One produces a beat that glues all three MC's together like peanut butter. This song is guaranteed to satisfy any hip hop hunger. The only songs I have a real problem with is "Touch N' You" with Usher. No matter how much I tried, I'm just not feeling it. "Presidential" is not one of my favorites either (Maybe because it's a Pharell song).
Rick Ross has improved in every way since the first time I heard him. This is a true example of growth as an artist. To compare it in sports terms, think of Lebron before he had a jumpshot and look at him now. Rozay has reached a higher level of music making. Each album he gets better. I didn't think he could top "Teflon Don" but he has. He knows how to give his fans exactly what they want without sounding exactly the same. Like Lebron, if Rick Ross continues on the path he is headed he won't be the greatest of all time, but he will be remembered as one of the greats. A-
Tracks I recommend of this album:
Diced Pineapples - I don't like Drake at all, but he's awesome on this song
Ten Jesus Pieces
Maybach Music IV - out of all the maybach music tracks he's done, #4 is the best so far.
So Sophisticated - i love his flow on this
3 Kings - Dre, when is Detox coming out?
Pirates - i like this track but it reminds me alot of "600 Benz" in the way Ross flows on it and the beats/melody too..
I was hoping he'd include "Stay Schemin" on it like he included "Triple Beam Dreams" and "Rich Forever" from the "Rich Forever" mixtape, but "Stay Schemin" is not on this album, and I really love that song.
A minor disappointment comes with a higher expectation, however, of thinking he'd take it up a notch. This shows he has a winning formula and he's sticking to it, so don't expect something any less or any more from the last two albums. The quality isn't a question though, it's classic Ross in the prime of his career.
