Rick Ross’ Mastermind: Here’s What We’re In For

It's still a month away, but we have an idea of what Rozay's much-anticipated LP will sound like.

In exactly one month, Rick Ross will drop his sixth solo LP, Mastermind, and as each day passes, pieces of the puzzle begin to come together.

On Monday night, Ross released the slow and soulful “Oster Perpetual.” It features original production, but is labeled a “freestyle” on the accompanying artwork, so chances are this new release won’t appear on Mastermind’s final track list. That doesn’t mean that the new tune can’t provide some insight to the boss’s sonic space, which I like to refer to as trap and soul.

Over the course of his past few albums (Deeper Than Rap, Teflon Don and God Forgives, I Don’t) Rozay has managed a well-timed two-step with a striking trap sound and deep soul revival. On his last LP, Ross balanced the rambunctious “Hold me Back” with the smooth and soothing “Maybach Music IV,” and Mastermind is shaping up to feature a similar duality.
