MMG bawse Rick Ross has went No. 1 on the billboards with his new album God Forgives, I Don’t. As reported by Billboard, the album has sold 215,015 units in first week album sales. The “Bawse” announced the good news on Twitter, tweeting, “It’s official! “God Forgives, I Don’t” no.1 Album in the country selling 225, 400 in its first week!!!!! @DefJamRecords #wellorchestrated.”
Rick Ross is reportedly planning to release a video for every track on the album, in the next few weeks. With Rozay trailblazing the path for the rest of his fellow MMG conglomerates, expectations for the next release will be undoubtedly high. The next album coming from the MMG camp will be Meek Mill’s debut album Dreams and Nightmares, which has been pushed back from its original released date of August 28th. No solid release date has been announced as of yet.
Rick Ross is currently prepping the release of his upcoming album God Forgives, I Don’t, set for release this summer on Def Jam. During an interview with LeBlackEtLaPlume.com, Ricky Rozay said that he approached the project like director Martin Scorsese would a film, and confirmed that Jay-Z and Dr. Dre will officially be on the project.
“God Forgives, I Don’t. First and foremost, the title, I wanted to approach it like let’s say Scorsese would have approached a film. I wanted it to be a bold statement, a dark statement, and have music to tell that story behind it. So it felt like a film or a motion picture when you listening to it. That’s the type of detail I really put into it,” he said. “The big homie Jay-Z on the album. I collaborated recently with Dr. Dre, which is something I thought would never happen at one point. Just to see how the tide is changing… I’m excited for the end result and what people are going to ultimately get.”
The Maybach Music Group boss also revealed aspirations of shooting his own films. Keeping up with his Scorsese inspiration, Ross wouldn’t acknowledge that other musicians bite his rhyme delivery but said that when he goes into film, that’s precisely what he will do with the famed director’s style.
“I think when you dope, man, that’s going to happen. It’s just like when I fulfill one of my dreams and start directing film one day, I’m going to bite Scorsese angles. I’, going to use the Scorcese lens. I think if you great within yourself, you take that, you ain’t even tripping.”
