Published May 03, 2012Rick Ross's new album God Forgives, I Don't was originally slated to drop last December, but thanks to his poor health and two seizures, the album was indefinitely delayed. Now, Ross has finally confirmed a release plan for his latest LP.
God Forgives, I Don't will drop on July 31 via Ross's own Maybach Music Group.
The rapper told Rolling Stone, "The stories that are being told on this record are gonna make it stand apart. It wasn't just about hot beats and hot rhymes but something that was needed, something that was necessary. This was the missing part of my legacy."
He continued, "The verses, the tracks, the production, the ad-libs -- everything's just in the right place."
So in other words, the album may be arriving seven months later than originally anticipated, but it will be worth the wait.
What's more, Ross and his Maybach Music Group buddies will be releasing a new collaborative album called Self Made Vol. 2 on June 26. This follows last year's Self Made Vol. 1 compilation.
Ross said, "I believe the personal connection [of everyone in MMG] really reflects in the music. We spent a lot more time on this album. We made better music, much better records." A video for the T-Pain-featuring album cut "Bag of Money" is below.
