Rick Ross has had quite a decade. Aug. 8, 2016, marked exactly 10 years since the rapper’s debut album, “Port of Miami,” dropped.
The “Purple Lamborghini” singer (the song appears on the “Suicide Squad” soundtrack) also is planning a huge concert, called Tidal X: Port of Miami, which will be live-streamed via Tidal at 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 29. He told Rolling Stone he hopes to perform above a shipping container (!).
“I wanted to do it as big as possible,” Ricky Rozay told the magazine. “They shutting down Port of Miami and setting the f—ing containers in the way where I could stand on them and the world can see me.”
Ross posted a series of videos on TIDAL where he explained, song by song, what the album meant to his career: “Ten years later what does Port of Miami mean to me? It was the birth of the Biggest Boss. I never imagined ten years when I started working on that album, I was just thinking about Miami, repping the city and maybe having an incredible year run. I didn’t care to think past that. I just wanted to enjoy the moment. After being on the grind ten years or more, to finally have that one record that the streets could recognize you for, and the streets, that the people that you work hard to captivate, finally appreciate your art.”
