Last week Rick Ross announced the title of his upcoming mixtape on Twitter, writing ““my new mixtape #richforever coming asap,” and the Bawse is serious about delivering the tape as soon as possible. Late on Monday night (December 26) Ross began tweeting a series of photos via Instagram, which showed him on set filming the visuals for the mixtape’s title track “Rich Forever.” He was joined by Drake, DJ Khaled, Meek Mill and French Montana.
Over the past few days, Ross has continued to tweet up a storm about his new project, even posting new photos on his tumblr page richforever.tumblr.com. The mixtape, hosted by DJ Scream and Shaheem Reid, will feature all new material and it will hold fans over until his delayed fifth studio album God Forgives, I Don’t finally drops early in 2012.
Drake seems to be one of the people excited about the mixtape, tweeting to Ross: “@rickyrozay that tape tho mayne…disrespectful…and much needed.”
Rich Forever will be a follow up to Ross’ Albert Anastasia EP and the Ashes To Ashes mixtape, which featured the popular singles “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast),” and “Super High.” In addition to his solo album and Rich Forever, Ross and Drake are also at work on a collaboration project titled Y.O.L.O. The MMG CEO told MTV News that he hopes the joint effort will morph into an official album.
