Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross moves closer to his upcoming Mastermind album’s release date and now reveals a Notorious B.I.G.-inspired track will likely make it onto the album.
During a private listening session, Ross revealed a track he likened to the memory of late musician Biggie Smalls.
According to VIBE, “Ross said that he feels Biggie could relate to this record, before the 911 call audio reporting the shooting at his Rolls Royce in January begins to play. Big was infamously gunned down in Los Angeles in 1997 while seated in the passenger side of a GMC Suburban SUV.
Next, the instrumental from The Notorious B.I.G.’s “You’re Nobody (Until Somebody Kills You)” drops and Ross began to address the attempt on his own life, his vocals eerily sounding a bit like Christopher Wallace’s French Montana does his best impression of Future Vandross as he sings on the chorus on the song, of which Rozay didn’t reveal the name. Ross, sporting a black Diamond Supply Co. sweatsuit, Philadelphia Flyers cap and gold Jesus piece, skimmed through about six songs that mildly varied in content.”
