Rick Ross Talks Delay Of God Forgives, I Don’t
When Rick Ross suffered two mystery seizures last month, it appeared his fans took it more serious than the rapper himself.
On the “I’m A Boss (Remix),” Ross was flippant about the episode: “Had a couple seizures, call it minor setbacks/Everybody praying for me, I respect that/Woke up in the hospital, where my checks at?/Then I put eight chains where my neck’s at.” It appears the heavyweight rapper is now feeling the effect of his health issues and is speaking on the potential delay of his upcoming album, God Forgives, I Don’t (originally set for a December 13 release date.
“The date is still tentative, December 13. [Because of] my little health situation, I had to postpone a lot of my groundwork,” Ross told MTV’s RapFix yesterday. “And I feel like that’s important for artists like myself. If I wanted to, I’m pretty sure I could still meet that date, but I think for the people, it’s more important [to lay groundwork] for when I get out there and look them in the face and touch them hands. We’ve just gotta lay ground for it, and I’mma keep y’all updated.”
He went on to talk about one particular benefit of his “downtime” — a new collaboration with longtime supporter, Jay-Z. “Just expect the biggest collabo we’ve ever made together. It’s just gonna make the project mean that much more,” he says. “Anytime me and the Big Homie get together, you know I’m coming with my A-game, ’cause I wanna make sure the homie is impressed with whatever I’m coming to the table with—and he was. He blessed me, so y’all get ready for it.”
