New Music: Rick Ross x Jay Z “The Devil Is A Lie”

artworks-000065780380-vl88f1-t500x500

Church!

Over wailing brass, Rick Ross spits his ghetto gospels with frequent collaborator, Jay Z. The Devil is a lie, but truthfully, Ross has to stay on topic. The song will appear on his Mastermind arriving next year.

The track’s producer, KE On The Track, walks us through on the production.

    Shit ill can’t fuccin lie!!!

  • 400_Degreez

    On first listen, this is slightly underwhelming… I’m sure it will grow on me though

  • heez

    Addressed the Barney’s situation as only HOV can

  • Jig-ah

    JIGGA Kill this SHIT…

    • areal1

      Nahhh ima jay fan but…… nahh bruh this aint it no disrespect

      • heez

        what didnt you like about the verse specifically ?

        • areal1

          It was that lazy ima stunt on you flow worth no real Hard bars typical jay post black album just slick talk

          • eastpointvet

            plenty of hard bars if you “got them” maybe you need to relisten

          • areal1

            Nothin to “get” my nigga it wasnt chinese arithmetic I heard the verse nothin special but jus my opinion you could have yours

          • eastpointvet

            its a lot to get. you dismiss truth as slick talk. guess you like your rappers of the lying variety. he talking about his real life if you see that as stunting then thats what u see it as but he talking about what he lives. like im sure if you rapped it would be about slanging boxes at UPS and fine dining at red lobster having cheddar biscuits. its all relative.

          • JADatsyuk

            It really wasn’t though…just an FYI.

        • B.Dot

          Ross didn’t stick with the theme as the title suggest. He’s just “rapping” for the sake of rapping.

  • areal1

    This is a rick ross jayz lead single for real yeah its officially over for ross the jig is up

    • Kieran

      The jig is up.

      LOLOLOL

  • BK James

    If you do a track with Jay you gotta come correct, and this is not that track, whereas “Free Mason” was for Ross. Hov’s bars are below par for him too.

  • BillyBobJohn

    I remember some dude on here months ago saying when this track flops [forgot the name of the track] William will have to call Jay for another favor and he was right lol.

      • tef

        Hey Bitch u talkin shiit**who are u to talk shiit about ross?if u dnt like him dnt talk shiit about him cox he is real..suckka

      • Matt

        Rick ross entire style is a commercial for luxury products. Who the hell can just watch commercials and skip the shows?

  • Donn

    See this is why Jay-Z overshines artist like Ross cus his raps are factual, he talks and addresses real things. While Ross keeps rapping about his fabricated gangster lifestyle that we don’t believe. Jay-Z lets the rumors and speculations pile up and then he delivers his answer on wax. Ross has shit to talk about it but he keeps talking about the same shit.

    • Matt

      I don’t care if what these rappers are saying is true or not I just want to hear some good music. After all it is just entertainment. With that being said Rick Ross ruined this beat. And Jay-Z did it again.

  • Hussle

    Meh. not as good as their past collabs

  • t

    This shit GO

  • InDaClouds365

    I dont know what the fuck y’all niggas smoking on to say Jay didn’t snap on this record!! The barney’s line alone was killer

  • Killa Cam

    i dont think ross and hov have had a bad collab… they’re shooting 100%! YOUNG!

    • DoinTooMuch

      You could say the same for jeezy and jay too

      • Devante

        Real as it gets was trash

        • areal1

          Real as it gets was wayyyy better than this shit youtube it take another listen ha

  • Brandon Pitts

    Wac Garbage~!

  • Inside I’m Ice!, Outside I’m L

    Kendrick, Drake, Jay remind y’all “all the

  • rapper2freedom

    I honestly think wtf is this garbage the song title has nothing to do with lyrical content which is just boasting.

    • Ken Golden

      were you paying attention to Hov’s verse at all? Or do you just not understand what’s been happening in the news regarding him the last few months?

      • rapper2freedom

        I wasn’t imply Jay Z but judging by all the comments you leaving on this page you need to stop the stanning it isn’t working. Magna was just Jay just boasting over good beats. And don’t tell me I need to stick with Keef if I dislike Jay Z verse I listen to Jay Electronica, Nas, MF Doom don’t try to dictate me there is hardly any brilliance to it talking about this petty Barney issue this is why Amerikkka is turning into a dump.

      • MrHeat

        So what is he sayin? I got money, i got money, fuckin bitches, mo money, mo money. Im not the devil tho everyone thinks it. Oh and im gettin money. Really intelligent stuff bro.

    • MrHeat

      +1000 This aint lyricism. It’s the same damn thing over and over from both of them. This is dumb ass mofo music and nothing more

  • Juelz

    ‘Ross has to stay on topic” shuttup bdot he can rap about whatever he wants if u dont like it then dont listen to it nobody needs/wants ur opinion just post the song and shutup

  • Ken Golden

    If you don’t realize the brilliance of Hov’s verse on here, I beg that you stick w/ the Wacka’s and the Keefs cause hip-hop just ain’t for you. Jay’s out here spittin so much truth on us as a people, and comments just prove his verse right.

  • Cmon Son

    The whole “Illuminati motif” is really fucking played, like REALLY fucking played.

  • LOL

    if it wasn’t for Jay Z this wouldn’t of been good, let’s face it Ross can’t carry a track by itself.

    • Keith Eades

      I wouldn’t say Ross can’t carry a song but this would not be good if Jay wasn’t on it!…

  • WhatYouNeed

    Ro$$ or Hov could use this kid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS3giQsbjfA

  • 8Galaxy5

    If anyone is a lie its fucking rick ross,not the devil.

    • Keith Eades

      YOooo I almost got fired from my JOB because of this comment!…. LAUGHING OUT LOUD! ……

      • Matt

        lol

  • Peekay

    the content of Ross’ raps are so predictable it’s stupid. We get it! You have lots of gold, money, cars and bitches (no ladies though). How about talking about something else? Decent beat though.

    • imposing will

      So could youtell us what jay z’s musical content is about and how the subject matter he spits is different than Ross’?

  • DoinTooMuch

    It’s kinda what I expected….which is why it feels so disappointing. Ross coulda came way harder. And his hooks are becoming too repetitive. smh

    • Keith Eades

      Dude I totally agree! he was okay but he got it in him to do better! Yes the hooks are not as good as before or we are getting to use to his sound.

  • brza

    Ross needs artists of Jay Z’s calibre featured on his singles in order to sell anymore

  • http://www.PhillztheMC.com/ Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    Hov stayed on topic. He BODIED. Ross was all over the place, still bars nonetheless. Start the car with the name was wavy. In all the HORNS got me more excited then anything. Salute KE. #TIMELESS

  • Damien Rome

    YOU KNOW HOW I KNEW B. DOT POSTED THIS… CAUSE IT SAYS “STAY ON TOPIC” WHEN HE’S COMPLETELY ON TOPIC.

    Y’all need spelled out punchlines about the devil and God or you won’t see what’s in front of your face. The fact that he’s living, and living well, is proof that the Devil is a lie in his mind.

    Anyway, wow Hov… wow… fuck… incredible verse…

    Everybody mad at Ross, and this song, shut the fuck up, eat your feelings, cause real mothafuckas that appreciate great music are bumping this and not commenting. I had to comment to tell you fuckboys to shut up though.

    • Keith Eades

      I think Ross verse is okay but be honest do you think he could have came better? I mean he killed the last joint he did with Jay and Jay verse was good enough that we all could say this is a good song but Jay killed this and Ross verse is just okay to me.

  • kermit806

    dope ass beat, but I just have to fast forward to jay, cuz I cant listen to what ross is sayin (we don’t believe you)

  • AFRICAN BOY

    I get the feeling Ross, who must be 38 years old, will never really grow lyrically, this is not the first time he had trouble sticking to a topic and that”s his own song!!! Beat selection is his strength, let’s hope, there will be a lot LESS, Lex luger/Young Chop and co. type beats. Jay is well Jay, not as good as he used to be but still better than 90% of niggaz out here

    • Keith Eades

      I agree Jay aint what he use to be but he aint no BS either! I have accepted that because I know this is a Young Man Game but these Youngin aint doing nothing and he just keep it consistent for us 90′s and 2000 rap heads!

  • I Run This..

    Ricky cant stick to the topic because he has a low concentration span. Nothing can help him.

  • Sean

    Listen to this shit on stereo speak and you’ll apriciate

  • JADatsyuk

    Hating is flagrant. Hit your free throws.

  • Mike

    Check out this music video!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jp0eN_807J0

  • http://www.charlesbronson.com/ Black Bronson

    Jay Z just murdered the track and murdered Rick Ross at the same damn time. Rick Ross was talking about the same shit, and Jigga comes and spews nothing but facts and real events. #KingHov

  • Keith Eades

    Ross hasn’t deliveried to me in a while! The last thing he dropped that I liked was Rich Forever Mixtape everything else has been okay, a song here a song there but he killed Fuck With Me You Know I Got It!

  • KayandGee

    banging track!! did it again whoa!

  • AFRICAN BOY

    Gotta salute Hov for saying the same shit for 15 years, i’m a fan though but damn, there’s only so much you can talk about your success lol Ross will sell less than 150 000 first week and no you not on the same level as them Dubai niggaz William

  • ross radar

    we see you Troll Dot ™ ! Critical Coward

  • Boogie

    Hov said i got that Barney floor looking like a VIM. Wow

  • JD

    Who can relate in any way to this shit? Nobodies going to rock this alone in their car for long, and everyone knows it. The collab on Magna Carta wasn’t good, neither is this. If it plays in clubs it will only be for the beat.

  • Chronic

    im sorry, people need to stop giving jay so much damn credit…hes still good compared to most of whats out, but he aint what he used to be

  • Novakaine

    Wouldn’t of bothered to listen to it if it wasn’t for Jay….. can’t trust someone who steals someone’s name brand no original does have a ear for beats can’t lie

    • imposing will

      Just so you know 50 cent got his name from a nother Street thug named 50 cent, its pretty normal for a nigga to get someone elses name especially if they share the same attributes, 9 time out of 10 some body gonna call you a name and you gonna belike I like that I’m gonnarun with it. And the guy’s name was freeway ricky ross, so its obvious to me that freeway from rocafella used the same name but no one ever notices that

  • blackholesurfer

    more comments on this BS article than the one with Mandela you niggas should be ashamed. pay your respects you ingrates.

    • John Jay

      Mandela was part of a reversed genocide…ask the Boers in exile what they feel about him. Even if someone attacks you, you forgive or retaliate.
      South Africa is a mess nowadays, so I choose to celebrate Freeway Rick Ross, Stanley Tookie Williams…they did evil and turned good…do your research

  • John Jay

    Everything has a beginning and an end…

  • realtalk

    yall sound lika bunch of haters. this shit was kinda fire. and ross verse was iight.

  • imhiphop

    Errrbody think they a damn critic, just enjoy good music when it comes because it’s rare

  • HBLocal714

    one of the best Jay verses I heard in a while.

  • Int’l_N2

    Those that say J and dumb out on this beat, do not, DO NOT listen to lyrics…. he addressed the illuminatti crap, the barneys crap and dont forget about that Black Jesus…”Black jesus turned water to wine, and all i had to do was turn the stove up……” CHHHURRCH…. crazy….

  • Rgeezy

    A real former drug dealer doing a song with a fake drug dealer. The Fake Rick Ross buzz is at a all time low and even Jay can’t change that. Good try William.

    Trash. Yall talk about Jay like he speak on something he did or is doing for yall in yall personal lives. He only talk about how he helped himself. Stop dickridin.

  • sincereakilleez

    I think its really irresponsible that rapradar feels compelled to impode its opinion on a song in the post before you get a chance to hear it. No disrespect but people dont clickon these post for your opinions.i feel its the highest form of direspect to the artist who supply you content that keeps this site running.i respect the work ethic of the staff hear but honestly all these blogs and magZines are warping peoples opinions and abusing there powers fof there own agendas and honestly the integrity suffers for it. With that said, no one gives a fuck about your opinion just give us unfiltered content

    The Song is hard! Rick Ross talked that random bullshit that we’ve come to expect from him and Jay is just that nigga. He hit the nail on the head and still managed to make people say “Wait, WTF did he just say…does he mean?!”. Middle aged rap legend, kicking asses like its the 90′s! People want to be ignorant and give illuminati credit for his hard work and he’s not let ignorant people off the hook, talk that shit Jay!
