Rick Ross gets ‘Sanctified’ with Kanye West and streams new album early
“Sanctified” reunites Ross and West after their “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” single “Monster.” It also marks West’s first guest appearance on a song in two years and his first new music since “Yeezus.”
The track opens with a signature West soul sample, aided by co-producer DJ Mustard, and moves through rock piano and rattling bass before it’s through.
Big Sean kicks it off, but West quickly takes over with a savage flow that compares champagne to holy water and reveals "fornicatin’" with groupies. He ends his verse with a line that’s pure Ye: “God sent me a message, said I'm too aggressive / Really!? Me!? Too aggressive!?” Ross comes in at the three-minute mark with his typical themes of chasing sex, drugs and cash.
Do you think that Kanye West steals the show on “Sanctified”?
