Rick Ross Rides Down “Elvis Presley Blvd” 


What’s this thing that a little birdy whispered in my ears? Rick Ross is releasing a new album entitled Hood Billionaire. Funny, didn’t ole boy just release an album this year called Mastermind? Of course, a new album needs a new single, right?

So, exactly how distinctive is Ross’ new single, “Elvis Presley Blvd?” Well, keeping it as ‘100’ as Ross does himself, it sounds like Ross’ work of the past.   As a song, the promo single from upcoming album Hood Billionaire is sound and solid, but it’s just not starkly different from anything else The Boss has dropped. “Elvis Presley Blvd” has the same overall feel like past joints “Bury Me A G” or “So Sophisticated.”

We get it, we get it – Rick Ross has swag and more importantly paper. That said, how often can rapping about paper and its perks remain, well hot? Final verdict: Good, not the second coming.

★★★½
