Rick Ross' Fifth Album Sees Possible Delay, Features Jay-Z Collaboration

After last month's seizures, Rick Rozay says he may have to push the release of his album "God Forgives, I Don't."

Rick Ross may have to delay the release of his fifth studio album due to setbacks from seizures that forced him to cancel shows last month.

"The date is still tentative, December 13," he told MTV. "[Because of] my little health situation, I had to postpone a lot of my groundwork. And I feel like that's important for artists like myself."

Ross said that the album, titled God Forgives, I Don't, may suffer the effects of minimal exposure if he does not delay the release.

"If I wanted to, I'm pretty sure I could still meet that date, but I think for the people, it's more important [to lay groundwork] for when I get out there and look them in the face and touch them hands," he explained. "We've just gotta lay ground for it, and I'mma keep y'all updated."

In addition, the Maybach Music leader spoke on his collaboration with Jay-Z on a track that will make the album. 

"Just expect the biggest collabo we've ever made together. It's just gonna make the project mean that much more," he said. "Any time me and the big homie get together, you know I'm coming with my A-game, 'cause I wanna make sure the homie is impressed with whatever I'm coming to the table with — and he was. He blessed me, so y'all get ready for it."

Ross is currently promoting Maybach Music artist Wale's sophomore effort Ambition, which debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 200.
