Flashback Friday: Rick Ross and Silk

It’s officially the first day of summer and if this weatherman is to be believed, it’s gonna hit almost 100 degrees at Soul In Stereo Studios today. Geez.

Well, we’ve got a couple of hot albums for your sweltering summer playlists. Check them out.


Rick Ross, Port of Miami (2006)

Rozay announced earlier this week that the sequel to his celebrated debut album will drop this summer, so why not revisit the LP that put him on the map? Y’all know I’ve been tough on ol’ Rawse at times over the years, but when it comes to beat selection and overall presence on a track, he’s unmatched. The man knows how to make a hit.

“Push It”

“Hustlin’ Remix,” featuring Jay Z and Young Jeezy


Silk (1995)

The Ivory Soap album! Silk’s first three albums are among my favorites of the 90s, and while their sophomore effort didn’t have the hype of the group’s former or latter efforts, it was great in its own right. Memorable singles, great sequencing and Lil G yelling all over the place – what more could you ask for?

Also check out:

“I Can Go Deep”

“Hooked on You”
