Grammy®-nominated Def Jam Recordings/Maybach Music Group hip-hop magnate Rick Ross comes to The Mahaffey Theater for his new solo headlining tour of the United States presented by AEG Live. His concert is Friday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m.
Rick Ross teams up with the famed 1500 Or Nothin' band for the tour, a brand new show with a look and sound unlike anything anybody has seen or heard. The tour announcement comes on the heels of the release of the new single, "No Games," featuring Future from the eagerly anticipated new album Mastermind, the follow-up to Rick's controversial God Forgives I Don't album released in July 2012. "No Games" impacts radio and iTunes on Oct. 1. Details on the album's release are at: http://www.rickrossmastermind.com
Ross and The Fifteen Hundreds (as the group is called) previewed the show last month at an sro concert event in Los Angeles, broadcast live nationwide on AXS TV.
"It's never been done like this," Ross says. "We'll be performing everything from "Tears of Joy" to "Aston Martin Music" all with a live band. It's time to remind everyone what Maybach Music is all about."
Six-foot-two 300 lb. Rick Ross, described as a "hip-hop heavyweight" by the New York Times, began the climb to world-wide super stardom with 2006's Port of Miami, his No. 1 Pop/No. 1 R&B/No. 1 Rap major label debut album. His dominance was further solidified with 2008's Trilla and 2009's Deeper Then Rap, named the No. 4 top-selling hardcore hip-hop album of the year by Interference.com. Ross' fourth album, Teflon Don, came in at No. 2 on the Billboard charts and spawned a slew of hits including the No. 1 single, "Aston Martin Music" with Drake and Chrisette Michelle and Top 10 Singles "BMF (Blowing Money Fast)" and "Super High" featuring Ne-Yo.
This past year Rick Ross has been featured on hip-hop's hottest albums including Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail and Wale's The Gifted.
