“Perfect day for new Boss joint!” Rick Ross announced via Twitter. Shortly after 3 p.m. on Thursday, he shared “Same Hoes” on SoundCloud, and he previewed a smokey, black and white visual for the track on Instagram.
Though “Same Hoes” is ostensibly about Ross’s female conquests, it mostly provides the MC with an opportunity to acknowledge other rappers (Pusha T, T.I., Snoop Dogg), singers (Chris Brown, Justin Bieber), comedians (Kevin Hart), TV hosts (Steve Harvey) and retired English sports stars (David Beckham). The beat traces a simple, hypnotic loop and bursts of brass add heft to the skeletal drum pattern.
Earlier this month, Ross teamed up with Meek Mill and Wale on “Make It Work,” which he advertised as “new music from #selfmade4.” The rapper teased the project again today, writing on Twitter, “Selfmade 4 coming.” Self Made Vol. 3, which showcased artists on Ross’s Maybach Music label, came out in 2013.
