Rick Ross on Wednesday (October 3) made a surprise announcement to all his Twitter fans: he’ll be releasing the free mixtape The Black Bar Mitzvah on October 8 via DatPiff. In the process, he revealed the iconic-for-its-absurdity cover artwork. Yes, that’s a fur-clad Rozay superimposed on the Star of David. Does it signify a conversion? An inside joke with Drake? We don’t know, nor do we care; we’re just glad it exists.
The Bawse has been busy this year. In addition to brawling at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, he released the mixtape Rich Forever in January, then the Maybach Music Group compilation Self Made Vol. 2 in June and his #1 album God Forgives, I Don’t in July. Ross will also tour with his MMG cohorts beginning in November. Perhaps they’ll break out “Hava Nagila.”
