So, Oscar night is a big night for new music releases now? First Coldplay announced their new album Ghost Stories and offered up new song “Magic.” Then Rick Ross decided to release Mastermind a day before its scheduled March 4 date. After tweeting out a screengrab of the iTunes page showing it for sale, Rozay tweeted, “THE STREETS COULDN’T WAIT!!!” And just like that, the boss made the boss move of deciding you can buy it.

The follow-up to his 2012 album God Forgives, I Don’t was originally set for a December 2013 release before getting pushed back. In the meantime, Ross held fans over by releasing singles “The Devil Is A Lie” and “War Ready” ahead of the LP.
