Last week, Rick Ross ended a two-year delay and unveiled his anticipated new studio album Port of Miami II’s lead single, “Act a Fool.” A collaboration with his Maybach Music Group labelmate Wale, “Act a Fool” serves as our first taste and preview of Port of Miami II‘s creative direction. Now, with the rollout and promotional campaign for his forthcoming Port of Miami sequel in full swing, Rick Ross is keeping his name in the headlines by serving up his own take on ScHoolboy Q’s CrasH Talk single “Numb Numb Juice.” Billed as a four-minute “freestyle,” Rick Ross’ new version of “Numb Numb Juice” comes to us courtesy of DJ Clue, who is presenting the record as a one-off release.
“It’s natural for me because it’s all things that I love,” Rick Ross previously explained to Vulture when asked about his many ventures, including his commitment to releasing new projects like Port of Miami II. “If it was something that I didn’t really care for, then it would actually be work. I love Belaire, the crew that we got, the team. I think this is one of the most exciting brands in the culture, the way we’re coming together from myself, DJ Khaled, Steve [Aoki], Dave East, the Migos. It makes it fun. So when we get together and bust a bottle or two in the club, it’s like ‘Yo, let’s do a record.’ It only makes sense to shoot a video. Let’s have some fun with it. So that’s what this is right now. It’s just a cool day.”
