Currently, the second season of the Epix’s “Godfather of Harlem” is in full swing, and so are the accompanying songs surrounding the series. Following the release of “Prince Hakeem” with ADÉ and India Shawn, “Been To War” with DMX, French Montana, and Swizz Beatz, and “Forgot About the Streets” with Melvoni, Badda TD, and Brillo, fans can now check out the new single “No Bark When I Bite,” a collaboration between Rick Ross and the Natalia Kills-led band Cruel Youth. Produced by Swizz, Musicman Ty, and Avenue Beatz, the homophonic, celestial offering sees the collaborators matching the mobster mentality of the aforementioned crime drama:
“Millionaire is the move, Cadillac is the moment, tailor makin’ the suit, know they tappin’ you phonies, got me watchin’ my homies, sittin’ low in the Lotus, Whitney Houston tonight, bathin’ tub in the morning/
Bobby Brown in the Benz, like I’m runnin’ from dеath, thought we really wеre friends, all she wanted was sex, hall of fame with the hustle, richer than I ever been, and I’m still stackin’ money in a deficit.../”
It’s been a couple of years since Rick Ross released his tenth studio LP Port of Miami 2, the official sequel to his 2006 debut that saw 15 tracks with additional features from Wale, Gunplay, Meek Mill, Summer Walker, DeJ Loaf, the late Nipsey Hussle, Teyana Taylor, Jeezy, YFN Lucci, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Lil Wayne, and more. Following the chart-topping release, Rozay’s gifted the world with loose singles like “Gimme Brain” with Travis Barker and Wayne, “Entanglements” with August Alsina, and the Finn Matthews-assisted “Pinned To The Cross,” the last of which is expected to appear on the forthcoming album Richer Than I’ve Ever Been. The Floridian star could also be heard on tracks by KSI, Anderson .Paak, and Skip Marley, and Drake, among others.
