Production crew The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League’s Rook recently dished about Rick Ross‘ forthcoming God Forgives, I Don’t solo album and promised its sound will create a heightened level of admiration for The Boss.
While keeping details to a minimum, Rook hinted at what fans could expect from the LP.
“We just talked to the homey, and we’re gonna have a big presence on that album,” the League’s Rook told Mixtape Daily while walking the black carpet at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards. “It’s funny because you think that [Ross] might’ve reached his peak,” Rook said. “People think that they might’ve figured his sound out, but when they hear the new album, they’re gonna be chasing that new sound.” (MTV)

“I’m in Swisher Studios right now working on my new project,” Ross told Power 105.1 radio hosts DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee. “50 percent of the album [is] already [done]. This is the first time I’m revealing it, but the name of the album is God Forgives, I Don’t…One of the records that I excluded off the [Ashes To Ashes] mixtape was ‘Made Men’ featuring the homie Drake. I wanted to put some final touches on it and I wanted to give you the opportunity to bless the world with that.” (Power 105.1)
