5 Burning Questions We Have About Rick Ross’s Black Market Tracklist.

Rick Ross dropped the tracklisting for his forthcoming Black Market album yesterday and it raised a few eyebrows. When rappers drop track lists to upcoming projects, it rarely moves the needle for a prolonged period of time within the hip-hop blogosphere (unless, of course, you’re Kanye West announcing Swish).“Black Market” was preceded by the “Black Dollar” mixtape, which showed a more intense side of Rick Ross than his two 2014 albums “Mastermind” and “Hood Billionaire.” Ross revealed the tracklist to his eighth studio LP, which features Nas, CeeLo Green, John Legend, Mariah Carey, DJ Premier, Chris Brown, Future and others. Rick Ross’s Black Market inches closer to its release date with each passing day, and to keep fans properly engaged, Ross has been dropping song after song.Rick Ross drops his collaboration with Nas, that will be on his new album, called “One Of Us.” The song arrives after Yung Renzel revealed the MMG-less tracklist for Black Market.

It’s all lyricism here, with Nas rapping, “Momma stressin, seen them ratchets in the dresser, shes not askin questions/She seen the vests and seen other kids in the casket resting.” These two have teamed up before on “Triple Beam Dreams” and “Accident Murderers,” and the pairing is just as effective here. After letting loose videos and taking a shot at a number of today’s popular songs—Adele’s “Hello” and Drake’s “30 for 30“— he’s finally locked into the release of his upcoming LP, Black Market. The Maybach Music Group boss is eyeing to release the 17-track project early next month (December 4) and it gave us a few questions we’d like to know the answers to.

Nas reps with a muscular opening set of bars that tie the chorus and the song title together: You’re getting money, got a body, then you’re one of us. The infighting between Meek Mill and Wale alone has been enough to question the stability of the label going forward (even though Rozay told us not to).

Furthermore, whatever the song “Ghostwriter” is about may either shine light on experiences he has had or even contain a few subliminal shots aimed at those in the industry. It also may address Drake, who was the victim of a media firestorm during the summer after it was revealed that he used ghostwriter Quentin Miller on numerous songs from his last solo album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. I’m not even calling him incapable of performing that task and if anyone is good at rounding up mystifyingly huge features for a project, it’s him. DJ Khaled has A&R’d for Rick Ross in the past and even described that role in a 2013 interview: “Say [Rick] Ross say, ‘Khaled, I need this feature on there.’ I gotta go get it,” he explained. “That’s the goal of a good A&R and a good executive.” Khaled, you smart. According to the tracklisting, Ross put on Instagram, there’s a song called “Can’t Say No” featuring Mariah Carey and one entitled “Very Best” featuring Mary J.

Even though the songs are five tracks apart, the fact that I’m going to hear Premo’s boom bap snares or raspy voice being utilized in some way on the same piece of work I’m going to hear Future rapping about lean, cooking coke (since the song’s called “D.O.P.E.”) or some s**t is strange.
