Rick Ross Says 'Green Gucci Suit' Was Inspired by the Golden Era of Hip-Hop: Exclusive
Rick Ross appears primed and ready to liberate his 10th solo album, Port of Miami 2: Born to Kill. Last week, the MMG general unleashed his new single "Green Gucci Suit" with Future, and early Monday morning (June 25), he unveiled the song's visuals.
"I believe this is our favorite collaboration," said Ross at the BET Awards Sunday night (June 24) regarding his new record with Future. "The actual concept of the record came together after I had a conversation with Dapper Dan in Harlem and, you know, we were just talking about the golden era of hip-hop. I just told him my perspective as a youngin' watching Eric B. and Rakim with the Gucci jackets, LL Cool J and The Fat Boys, EPMD, and the list goes on."
Ross added: "I told him the fashion always played just as much part as the music did in the whole movie. So, this was just me giving back to the golden era."
Prior to releasing "Green Gucci Suit," Ross warmed the streets up with "Florida Boy" featuring Kodak Black and T-Pain. For the veteran, his hope was to pay homage to his home state, while also giving the streets what they wanted in terms of a fiery record.
"On that record, I really did that for the streets," he revealed. "I did it for the streets. I wanted to go out there and feed Florida but with Port of Miami 2, you can expect a lot of special things. We're gonna give ya'll the 'Green Gucci Suit' video and then we'll give you more details. Just know, it's less about me and more about what the streets want on this one. That's what it's all about."
