By this summer, the new big deal in hip hop will be Rick Ross. I heard some of his stuff through my universal music internship and it is sick!!!! check out some of his songs here http://www6.defjam.com/site/artist_home.php?artist_id=607
his new album, "Port of Miami" will be coming out sometime between now and this summer, cause his release date is still up in the air. just keep your ears open.
