Miami-based Rick Ross's story is as old as the hills and is summed up by the hook on Hustlin', his breakthrough early-summer hit: "Every day I'm hustlin'," repeated infinitely. He's a hustler, okay? But that song's hilariously impossible claims, like "I know Noreaga - the real Noreaga, he owe me a hundred favours," hint that Ross might actually be winking at us from behind those Cartier sunglasses. Ross's style of straight-faced hyperbole, spat in his bedraggled flow, gets fleshed out on the Jay-Z-exec'd full-length. Add to this some ridicu-hot beats from big names (Cool & Dre, Jazze Pha) and no-names (J. Venom? The Runners?) alike, and Ross may soon really be able to "own resorts and islands," as Jigga claims on the Hustlin' remix.
