Rich Forever is the third mixtape by American rapper Rick Ross. It was released on January 6, 2012. It was at one point in time the most downloaded hip hop mixtape ever, breaking records on websites such as DatPiff and LiveMixtapes, until later in the year, other artists, such as Ross‘s protégé Meek Mill on Dreamchasers 2, received more downloads later on in the year. The mixtape spawned only one commercial single but it was very successful, “Stay Schemin‘”.On January 6, 2012, the music video for Stay Schemin’ featuring Drake, and French Montana was released. On February 8, 2012, the music video was released for “Yella Diamonds“. On February 14, 2012, the music video was released for “MMG Untouchable“. On February 21, 2012, the music video was released for “High Definition“. On March 20, 2012, the music video was released for “I Swear To God“. On March 30, 2012 the music video was released for “Party Heart” featuring 2 Chainz and Stalley. On April 15, 2012, the music video was released for “Ring Ring” featuring Future.
Jon Caramancia of the New York Times noted that Nas‘s performance was a successful return to the quality of performances he gave in his earlier albums, and said that Ross “hears the best in other rappers, and sometimes pilfers it for himself”. Jody Rosen at Rolling Stone called it a “mixtape that plays like an album, with blaring, heraldic production”. The tape was named the third best album of 2012 by Complex Magazine, the 45th best by Rolling Stone and 47th best by Stereogum.
Rick Ross rung in 2012 with a bang. With a release date for God Forgives, I Don’t set for release in 2013, Rozay unleashed a new collection of tunes, an album before the album. We knew this was serious from the start when Sean Combs talked his shit all over the glorious “Holy Ghost”. The Teflon Don showed his true aggressiveness on “High Definition”, “MMG Untouchable” and “Yellow Diamonds”. But a major part of Rick Ross‘s success is his ability to bring the best out of his collaborators. Nas sounds re-energized on “Triple Beam Dreams”, Styles P glides on “Keys To The Crib” and we all know what Drake did on “Stay Schemin”. While most artists wait until the summer to bring the heat, the MMG Boss took the initiative to take over early. Follow on twitter: @rickyrozay @Medievalbeatz
