RICK ROSS Tickets
In the wake of sixth album 'Mastermind' hitting No.1 on the Billboard chart, he's making a swift return to the capital for a show at The Roundhouse, London on May 18th
Like every up and coming MC, Ross--influenced by Golden Era b-boys that reigned supreme in the late 80s--just wanted to be heard during his introduction into hip-hop in the late 90s. While the desire and the artistry have been Ross hallmarks from career commencement, he had to learn the fine of art of structuring record contracts as well figure out a way to market and promote himself to the public when his former record labels couldn’t.
Ultimately, Rick Ross’ time didn’t come until over a decade after he started professionally. He only needed one song to break through. 2006’s “Hustlin” which went from being a relentless street anthem to a pop culture catch phrase still used today, earned Ross a record deal with Def Jam, and became the catalyst for his debut LP 'Port of Miami'. That album debuted number one on the Billboard charts as did 'Trilla' which came less than two years later.
And while his core fans already were familiar with the superlatives or Rick Ross the artist, in 2009, we got to know how strong of man the music Kingpin was.
Highly publicized rap battles and controversy over his street cred that started at the end of 2008, none of it mattered by the spring of the next year when 2009’s Deeper Than Rap dropped. 2010’s 'Teflon Don' was the album that catapulted Ross to international superstardom.
Building on the next level of his fame, Ross’ hunger wasn’t satiated. He knew it was his golden opportunity expand his Maybach Music Group. In late 2010 MMG went from boutique imprint to a full fledged label, with the signings of Wale and Meek Mill as the cornerstones of the roster.
In early 2012, Ross released a free mixtape containing an albums worth of new material called 'Rich Forever'. The popularity from the body of work was so fervent, Ross toured in the U.S. and overseas in support of the new set of songs .
Now with 'God Forgives I Don’t', Ross has his sights set on new goals.
