Deeper Than Rap (2009)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Apr 21, 2009; Lead Performance: Rick Ross; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

How out of step with our times is comparing one's crew to a yacht club? That's only one example of the way Rick Ross celebrates wealth and status on his third album, Deeper Than Rap. Like many tracks here, though, ''Yacht Club'' gets by on Ross' impeccable beat selection. He may rap like he's out of touch with reality, but with bass lines this deep and synths this huge, you might forget the present era's woes yourself. B
