Song: Magnificent [ft. John Legend]
Artist: Rick Ross
Album: Deeper Than Rap
Label: Def Jam Records
Producer: J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League
Notes: 1st single from LP
Analysis: Once spring hits, this is my favorite type of hip hop; the kind you can just cruise around to and never get tired of. It’s still January, but we can’t hold that against Ricky Ross on this one. It doesn’t hurt that Ross recruited the best singer in the world right now, John Legend either. J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League crafted a perfectly sampled and executed beat, sounding like a mix between their outstanding ‘Maybach Music’ beat off of Ross’ Trilla album, and various Trackmasters beats from the 90s. Ross kicks some average rhymes, but this is the type of song where you’ll be enjoying the atmosphere of the track more than the actual lyrics, but still rapping along anyway. It’s a great early start to the better weather, but I’m sure that by the time they shoot a video for this track, it’ll be prime cruisin’ time.
