Eleven years ago, the legend Rick Ross began with Port Miami, a debut album filled to the brim with bangers and self-mythologizing street lyricism. Now, the sequel is on the way—at least, according to DJ Khaled.
Late Thursday night, the We The Best Music Group boss sent out a tweet teasing Port Miami 2, Rozay’s forthcoming project. “Port Miami 2 in the works @RickRoss,” the DJ wrote.
Of course, Rozay himself, whose album Rather You Than Me, landed on our best projects 2017 (so far) list, announced Port Miami 2: Born to Kill all the way back in March. Maybe Khaled’s tweet is a sign Rozay’s knee-deep into recording his latest project—and that Khaled himself is involved. If so, Ross must be really busy.
In other Rozay news, the rapper recently found himself in some boiling hot water for comments he made on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast club. During his appearance, the MMG boss claimed that he wouldn’t sign a female artist to his record label because he’d want to have sex with her. He apologized a short time later.
“My comment is not reflection my beliefs on the issue. A mistake I regret,” he wrote in one part his apology. “I hope to use my mistake, my platform and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue. respect for the ones who stand up to say hey that isn’t right. Now it’s time to accept responsibility and all do better.”
