The Black Bar Mitzvah

The Black Bar Mitzvah is a perfect title for a Rick Ross mixtape: his vision of playalistic splendor has always been the stuff of thirteen year-old boy fantasy. "My new home look like it’s Al Capone/My new bitch look like she in En Vogue," he raps over swirling strings and blinding-bright hi-hats on "Us," featuring Drake. Ross stomps triumphally over hits like Kanye's "Mercy" and "Birthday" by 2 Chainz, hates on Mitt Romney, and even recaps his recent micro-brawl with Young Jeezy at the BET Hip-Hop Awards: "Let me get back to my bitches 'cause you bitch niggas ain't nothing"– even when reality creeps in, he still sounds like a superhero.
