“Port of Miami started me on this journey. It’s only right I bring it back to where it all started. For my day ones to the new ones, this album is for you.”
Some say the sequel is never as good as the original– but Rick Ross has just proven this statement to be unbelievably false.
It’s been 13 years since we heard the first track on Ross’s infamous project, Port of Miami. Rozay has now given us the equally-as-phenomenal follow up to that by the name of Port of Miami 2.
POM2 begins with the Wale-assisted single, “Act A Fool,” before sliding into “Turnpike Ike,” which happens to be one of the few tracks on the project that doesn’t boast an A-list feature. In addition to Wale, the Maybach Music founder has also blessed us with vocals and verses from names like Summer Walker, Teyana Taylor, the Late Nipsey Hussle, and of course, Meek Mill (just to name a few). The album is then wrapped in a neat little bow and completed with “Gold Roses,” the brain child of Ross and Drake that covers the tribulations around making a name and being appreciated for the life they’ve lived while they’re still alive.
The rap veteran has dropped fifteen mini-masterpieces. Fifteen new classics. Fifteen songs that you need to listen to below.
