from Diced Pineapples lyrics by Rick Ross

Since Big Pop passed, hip-hop has been thirsting for another papa bear type figure. Rick Ross tries to pickup where Life After Death left off, and for the most part does it to¬†convincing effect. On “Diced Pineapples” he croons only as he knows how: with his money and power.
