This is the first collaboration between Rick Ross and Drake that is not sappy as s**t.
When you hear a song like “Gold Roses,” no need to talk about it, you just listen and take notes. On it, both Drake and Rick Ross spit serious bars over this emotional instrumental that has a splash of heavy-hitting vibes attached to it. While Drake’s bars about everything from increasing his wealth to approaching relationships with caution will catch your attention, I think Ross’ vulnerability on his verse is pretty intriguing to listen to, too, especially when he talks about fake love and hustling ’til the lights turn on.
I’m so glad Ross and Drake’s beef from back in the day never manifested its-self.
