Album Review: Black Market by Rick Ross


The distinguishing thing about hip-hop artist Rick Ross is the amount of energy that he possesses and the versatility that he brings in his raps. His albums such as “God Forgives, I Don’t” and “Mastermind” have been major musical successes and have been praised by critics and fans equally. His eighth studio album that is scheduled to be released on December 4, 2015, is expected to be the one of the best rap albums of the year.


When you listen to records like “Foreclosure,” that’s like me sitting in a room by myself just rapping about things that’s running across my mind and things that have been bothering me. The mind-blowing part of this album is that it features guest appearances from icons such as Mariah Carey, DJ Premier, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, CeeLo Green, Nas, Chris Brown, Future and The-Dream and thus adding additional flavors to this beautiful collaboration.

The coolest track of the album “Foreclosures” that was released on September 23, 2015, has been a high commercial success. According to the rapper, this track was invented in a room while he was just rapping about things that were running across his mind. The second track of the album “Sorry” that was released on October 9, 2015 followed by a video release in November and that features Chris Brown is also nice rap collaboration by the excellent duo. “Free Enterprise”, “Smile Mama, Smile”, “One of Us”, “Silk Road”, “Can’t Say No”, “Peace Sign” and other such creations are gems of this awaited album. Overall, when its Rick Ross album, then its worth-listening option.
