On Wednesday (January 3) Rick Ross was photographed in the studio with DJ Khaled finalizing the tracklist for his new mixtape Rich Forever, and as promised Rozay delivered the completed list at 3:05pm on Thursday—exactly 24 hours before the mixtape premieres on LiveMixtapes at 3:05p.m. on Friday (January 6). Notable features on the project includes Nas, Pharrell, Diddy, 2 Chainz and, of course, Drake, Wale, Meek Mill and French Montana.
Last week Ross tweeted photos from the video set for Rich Forever with Drake, Meek Mill and French Montana, hinting that they would appear on the mixtape’s title track, which isn’t the case. John Legend, surprisingly, is featured on “Rich Forever,” while Drake and French Montana appear on “Stay Schemin,” French appears again on “Off The Boat” and Meek Mill appears on “Last Breath” with Birdman.
Peep the full tracklist below.
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. The Miami rapper announced his new project in mid-December after returning from a trip to South Africa, where he said that he wrote an entire album’s worth of material. “It’s Official Drop’n New Mixtape!!! #RozayNewTape,” he wrote on December 15. Rozay has already been at work shooting videos for the mixtape’s title track, with some help from DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, French Montana and Drake.
