“The World Is Ours”- Rick Ross, Pharrell, Meek Mill, Stalley

Jams

This track, the 17th on Ross’ excellent Rich Forever mixtape, features a clever, snare-heavy, drum section and bright horn sounds. As the title suggests, this is one of those songs meant to be thrown on when you’re feeling on top of the world.

Ross’ first verse features a line where he raps that he’s “the Geechee Liberace/ I put diamonds on everything,” which is one of those lines that you have to smile at because it’s clever and ridiculous at the same time, shrug, and just kinda accept.

Pharrell’s boastful second verse is also a lot of fun–he ends with “I smashed the beat,” when it’s all said and done, and it’s hard to argue with him.

Even Meek Mill, normally known for rapping like his only setting is ALL CAPS, tones it down a bit for his verse on this one. It’s a fun song to listen to, even just to hear what that sounds like.

Stalley doesn’t exactly meet the standard set by the other three verses before him, but he does alright. He’s done some good work in the past, but this is not an especially standout effort from the Ohio rapper.
