Album: Port of Miami Producer: J. R. Rotem Label: Slip-n-Slide, Def Jam, Poe Boy
Rick Ross often gets accused of inhabiting a dream world with his boss-of-all-bosses drug kingpin talk. On Port of Miami's "Push It," Officer Ricky literally cast himself in an audio remake of Scarface, telling a suspiciously familiar rags-to-riches story over a triumphant J.R. Rotem beat which sampled shrieky '80s rocker Paul Engemann's "Push it to the Limit," the movie's cheesy montage song. If lines like "You never know that dishwasher may be a beholder/Who knew that fat girl would turn into Oprah?" weren't so entertaining, we'd almost have to laugh at the man's audacity.
