When Rick Ross takes the stage at Gas Monkey Live! he’ll be a free man for the first time in a long time. Last week a video of Ross removing his court-ordered ankle monitor went viral and now the Bawse is in full celebratory mode. This show comes a few weeks after the release of his chart-topping album Rather You Than Me. With nine studio albums under his belt at the age of 41, the Teflon Don is hitting new strides in his career. He still boasts about his luxurious lifestyle in his raps, but on his new album he couples that with reflective storytelling and a mentor mentality. This is best heard on “Idols Become Rivals,” where Ross takes aim at hip-hop mogul Birdman, who’s holding Lil Wayne’s new album hostage. (Lil Wayne is one of Ross’ longtime collaborators and friends.) This show is poised to be one of Ross’ best Dallas appearances as he has a lot of new material to perform.
