Rick Ross, Future Are All Business on ‘No Games’

Rick Ross
Maybach Music Group

Earlier this year, Rick Ross was seen lounging around as Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Give Me Your Love’ plays in the background in the trailer to promote his upcoming ‘Mastermind’ LP, which implied a more relaxed, less banger-heavy approach to the new project. That could very well be the case, but ‘No Games’ — the first single from ‘Mastermind’ — shows that it’s not going to be complete luxury and soulfulness.

The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League production is too intense for even the crooning Future to ignore. He drops his ominous singing in the beginning for a more immediate, galvanizing head-knocking hook. Future has to drop his spacey Auto-Tune to match J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League’s production.

Ross’ performance is part straightforward rapping and part bellowing, as he sounds more imposing than he has recently. While Future is forced to adapt to the instrumental, the Maybach Music Group head honcho is aggressive enough to make this beat appear malleable.

The beat cuts and the bass follows him as he raps quotables like, “H–s don’t credit p—- so you can’t pay her tomorrow.” It’s a huge juxtaposition to the Alfred Hitchcock-like pose Ross takes on the single’s cover.

‘Mastermind’ is set to drop sometime this year, but the new Maybach Music Group collaboration album — ‘Self Made, Vol. 3′ — is set to drop Sept. 17.
