DJ Khaled + Rick Ross Brings the Heat to RESPECT. Magazine Cover
Forget about Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, DJ Khaled and Rick Ross are the real men in black. The two Miami rappers are gracing the cover of the latest issue of RESPECT. magazine. The cover line reads, “Miami Heat: Hits, Hard Work & The Hunger For More.”
Undoubtedly, Khaled brought some major heat this summer with his anthemic songs. The super-producer gave us three big hits this season — ‘Take it to the Head’ (featuring Ross, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne), ‘I Wish You Would’ (Featuring Kanye West and Ross) and the street-certified banger ‘Hip Hop’ (Featuring Nas and Scarface). All of these tracks will appear on Khaled’s star-studded album ‘Kiss the Ring,’ which hits stores Aug. 21.
Meanwhile, Ross has secured his fourth No. 1 album with ‘God Forgives, I Don’t.’ The collection moved 218,000 copies in its first week of release. The ’3 Kings’ rapper has more chart-toppers than veteran rhyme-slingers like Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg who have three apiece. Ruh!
Ross is so on top right now that even Gwyneth Paltrow is loving the Bawse’s music. In an interview with Jay-Z‘s lifestyle website, Life + Times, Gwenny reveals herself as a big hip-hop head. Among her favorite songs of the summer include Frank Ocean‘s ‘Thinking About You,’ Usher‘s ‘Climax’ and French Montana’s ‘Pop That,’ which also features Ross. “Rick Ross puts me in a good mood, he just does,” she says of the bossman. Oh behave, Gwyneth.
