Rick Ross North Carolina Dates Cancelled After Gang Threats

Rick Ross North Carolina Dates Cancelled After Gang Threats

Hear the heavy first track from the Maybach Music mogul's "Mastermind."

Rick Ross' new track was meant to be blasted from car stereos.

"I started with a box Chevy / then I got a blue Lexus," the Maybach Music mogul raps on "Box Chevy," a track that aims its automotive boasts squarely at his critics.

The hard-hitting lead single is the first from "Mastermind," Ross' follow-up to last year's "God Forgives, I Don't," a quick turnaround given his previous effort's July release. "God Forgives, I Don't" bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2012, his fourth chart-topping set and his best debut week yet with 218,000 copies sold.

"Box Chevy" was produced by D. Rich. Ross released an album trailer earlier this month that teased a less aggressive sound, picturing the MC enjoying a romantic partner's company over the Curtis Mayfield track "Give Me Your Love."
