Rick Ross proclaimed his title as the “biggest boss that you’ve seen thus far” years ago. With God Forgives, I Don’t reaching No.1 on the Billboard 200 he shows and proves why he’s leading the rap game pack. Selling 218,000 records in the first week, GFID is the Miami rapper’s fourth No. 1, which gives him more than seasoned artists like Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg. His sales were peaked thanks to Amazon MP3, which will sell the album for $5 for the entire month of August. It has already racked up 90,000 downloads making it No.1 on the digital album charts. We may be dating ourselves a bit here, but we remember a time when digital sales didn’t exist. Vinyl records, cassettes or CDs were the only ways to purchase music. My how times have changed.
Over the weekend Ross joined Drake on stage for the OVO Fest in Toronto. We’re sure Ricky Rozay expected nothing more than to return stateside to an album atop the charts. Because when you’re the boss of your own label trying to create a rap empire, you expect nothing but the top spot. None other will suffice.
