New Song: Rick Ross & Nicki Minaj – ‘You The Boss’

Published: Wednesday 5th Oct 2011 by Sam

Hip-Hop heavyweights Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj team up for the former’s new single ‘You The Boss’ – the first to be lifted from his 5th studio album ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ (due December 1st).

With Nicki breaking her collabo hiatus, this needed to be a homerun. Is it? Find out after the jump…

While wholly listenable (and likely a future radio staple), the cut falls short of expectation. For, on paper, it boasts all the workings of a stellar track (see: major feature, hard-hitting title). Yet, in reality the production is generic.com, as is Minaj’s contribution – which ultimately could have been phoned in by any run-of-the-mill R&B chick. Sans the autotune too.

Basic.

    Sounds catchy.

    They’re both at the top of their game, they better milk on it while it lasts.

    I won’t even listen to it, but did you seriously file it under Rick Ross??So that means that you’re going to post about him regularly now?? *sigh* I understand that he is getting a bit of a success now, so he’s going to get blog coverage, but there have been SOOOO many amazing rappers this year releasing material and you haven’t posted anything about them yet 🙁 I’m just hoping for more Nas and Common posts now that they are coming back, PLEASE!

  6. TIMMI October 5, 2011

    Sounds mediocre… He should have got a SINGER.

    Tired of Nicki… Tired of Rick Ross

    Is this all about this man raps about? Who’s a BOSS? With a few occasional grunts inbetween like he just noticed a sirloin steak infront of him?

  7. lifee October 5, 2011

    @Army you still checkin for nicki like everybody else even tho you can’t stand her! Nice job! LOL.

  12. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 5, 2011

    You know don’t matter what you n***** think. Same always posting nicki’s s*** even tho they may not even be official singles cuz he must be a fan. Nicki Minaj is always recording and doing collabs since day 1 after her mixtapes. You don’t like her then don’t listen. She still gonna do her regardless.

  13. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 5, 2011

    *Sam always posting nicki’s s***.

  14. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 5, 2011

    @Army if it was lil kim singing you’d be like damn, she can sing. So stfu. Lol. Too bad she sounds worse than nicki tho. No, nicki not the greatest singer but she’s not known as one anyway so who cares. When she’s auto-tuned she sounds decent.

  15. RDK October 5, 2011

    i see you Nicki tight collab,keep doing you waiting on that video.

  16. >Y.U.Mad? October 5, 2011

  22. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 5, 2011

    I guess the better question is why are lil kim fans always the first ones to the nicki post before the nicki stans. LOL. Usually on kim post the kim fans are the first to talk about nicki like malibu barbie. Looks like army took her place. But she’ll be back. Pressed b****.

  23. jesus October 5, 2011

    two frauds in one song? i wish the real biggie was alive. lilkim please stand up.

  24. I’ma have to send her to her maker October 5, 2011

    @Jesus well he isn’t alive. But even in his death he is more remembered than lil flop ever will be. LOL. “We wish kim….blah blah blah.” B****, you talking about the same kim that hasn’t had a hit in 6 years. Yall shoulda been wishing HARDER then. LOL. Trina already took kim’s place. NO one is checkin for lil flop. Get the f*** over it you retrospect retards.

  25. Layla October 5, 2011

  30. nice_gurl October 6, 2011

    I like it, but Nicki is becoming more of a ‘singer’ than a ‘rapper’.

  31. Dee emmm jayy October 21, 2011

    Didnt like it at first but nickis voice and melody caught on to me very quick. Laid back track with Ross giving that water like flow….it will be a video hit if it gets that far
