Remix machine Rick Ross is delivering a gift before the holiday season with his upcoming LP, Black Market, set to drop Dec. 4 (Def Jam Recordings/ Maybach Music Group).

Over the past week, Rozay has been inserting his Maybach Music drops into Internet favorites like Adele’s “Hello,” Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” as well as Post Malone’s “White Iverson.” Black Market’s lead single, “Sorry,” featuring Chris Brown, is also blowing up Vevo with over three million views.

In a recent interview with Billboard, the MMG Bawseman said his eighth studio effort (his third in less than two years) will showcase his talents on a “higher, intellectual level.”

“I believe I've always been so successful on the black market, for a lot of different reasons,” he said of the album title inspiration. “And I just felt like that's the space we're in, that's the space the music is at right now. And who else better to engulf that other than The Bawse?”
