Rick Ross

Trilla (Def Jam)

Rick Ross hip-hop Lil Wayne

Notes to Rick Ross: A) First of all, don't make your intro a shout-out track. B) If you're going to have DJ Khaled do an interlude, ask him not to refer to you as "the definition of the projects," because that doesn't really make much sense. C) For God's sake, put Akon on the album. Your flow, while deep, is nonetheless quite monotonous, and your cadence rarely varies. And as everyone knows, Akon's hooks make everything OK. D) "Money Make Me Come" is really disgusting. E) "This Me" is actually pretty good. DJ Toomp doesn't seem to be able to do much wrong recently. Good call. F) If you're going to have Lil Wayne on your album — which is now required by law — don't let him outrap you. It's practically written into Wayne's contract that he must suck as a guest rapper. Still, you're going to have to come up with better lines than "Need a blowjob? My motto: Get a model for the job." G) Lose some weight. It has nothing to do with Trilla, but hyperobesity promotes nonalcoholic fatty-liver disease and sleep apnea. Real talk.
