American rapper and entrepreneur Rick Ross will be making his Australian debut on Wednesday, September 19 at Metro City before heading across the rest of the country.
Lifted from his debut album Port of Miami, Rick released breakthrough single Hustlin’ in 2006. The track went from a relentless street anthem to a pop culture catch phrase, and earned Ross a record deal with Def Jam. Port of Miami debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, as did Trilla, which came less than two years later.
2010’s critically acclaimed Teflon Don catapulted Ross to international stardom. Just some of the names on the album include Jay-Z, CeeLo Green, T.I., Erykah Badu, Kanye West, Ne-Yo, Diddy, Gucci Mane and Drake.
Rick Ross has featured on tracks like DJ Khaled’s We Takin’ Over and Kanye West’s Devil In A New Dress, collaborated with Skrillex on Purple Lamborghini from the Suicide Squad soundtrack, and more recently with Miguel on Criminal and Pusha T on Hard Piano.
Currently, Rick Ross is working on his tenth studio album Port of Miami 2, which is set to drop this year. Not much is known about the release, only that the first tastes, Florida Boy (feat. T-Pain and Kodak Black), and Green Gucci Suit (feat. Future), are out now.
Rick Ross plays Metro City on Wednesday, September 19. Tickets on sale 12pm Thursday, July 5.
