In a year of atmospheric syrup- and stoner-friendly production styles, “I'ma Boss” was one of 2011's few triumphant anthems. Ross's rhymes on the original version of the track fit the track like a glove, each larger-than-life boast a portrait of the kind of mythical kingpin who strides through the streets like a giant.
Virtually every lyric was Ross at his most quotable, from “Fuck a blog, dog!” to the verse's ultimate moment of contradiction: simultaneously nihilistic and sensitive, Ross proclaims that the only thing that makes him cry is infant mortality.
