Port of Miami 2 was originally supposed to drop in 2017. As of last summer, it was almost done, and by November it was at its “final stages.” Hopefully the Bawse can skip the announcements of the really-almost-done-for-real-this-time stages and just put out the record in 2019. Ross’ last few projects have sold less than superstar-level numbers and have at times suffered from creative stagnation. But harkening back to his 2006 studio debut, Port of Miami, might counterintuitively inspire Rozay to connect with the energy, vision, and songwriting prowess that made him a star in the first place. —Shawn Setaro
