MMG boss and Miami native Rick Ross releases a new single with “I Wonder Why”. It isn’t clear just yet if this end up on Self Made Vol. 3 dropping September 17 or his forthcoming Mastermind album. Nevertheless, the boss goes to work over some hard hitting bass and haunting synth work provided by Beat Billionaire. Though Ross raps tales of overcoming street life and ending up a legitimate business man, the boss’ flow comes off a bit paranoid and cautious of circumstances that could potentially end his reign or his life. Ricky also goes out of his way to include references to Trayvon Martin and Miami’s controversial stand-your-ground law.
