On “Bag Up,” Ross doesn’t quite tip his toe in the water. Instead, he’s in there wading, over a heated banger from DP Beats. Yet the song itself feels like a rehash of iconic Ross, and it would be surprising to see this one lining the upcoming Port Of Miami 2. Instead, it reads like a warm-up routine, in which Rick Ross steps to the mic in a silk robe and matching slippers: cigar in mouth optional. His position is well earned, but sometimes, the workers prefer to see the boss hustling like he’s still on the come up.
It’s time to bag up,
I bought the red Balenciaga’s ripped the tag off
I swipe the card if its a lot before I smash off
I roll the dope before we ride I like to blast off
Kill everything inside before you take your mask off
