Rick Ross Sets The Stage With Mastermind Album Trailer

Rick Ross will drop his 6th solo album before 2013 wraps, and with a release date of December 17 now confirmed, Rozay takes fans on a brief journey through the life of a Mastermind in his brand new album trailer.

Opening with the Miami native in a 1999 interview, confidently declaring, “Ya’ll gon' be seeing a lot of me, ya'll gon' be replaying this sh-- for years to come,” the footage runs through Ross' illustrious career thus far, highlighting his Teflon Don album and major hits like "B.M.F." while splicing in footage of other well-respected Masterminds.

Fellow moguls like Diddy, Jay Z and Birdman are featured along with the great Muhammad Ali dropping the infamous line, "The stage is set for me to be ranked as the greatest of all time." Rozay's MMG squad also make appearances in the trailer, right along with clips that show the heights he's reached, being featured on "The View," opening his Wingstop restaurant chain, and even performing "F--kwithmeyouknowigotit" alongside Hov. The stage is really set.

Mastermind arrives on December 17, led by the single "No Games" featuring Future. 'I love making those 'Cigar Music' records, those 'Amsterdam' records, and that was most definitely the energy,' Ross previously told MTV News of the upcoming album.
