Loyalty Is Of The Upmost Importance To Rick Ross on “No U-Turns” [New Music]

Rick Ross won’t stand for disloyalty on his latest offering “No U-Turns.”

We find Ross reflecting on the importance of loyalty and brotherhood as he raps,

“It ain’t no U-turns on the block / You switch sides, you better stay there.”

“No U-Turns” could be an indication that Rozay is hard at work in the studio crafting a follow-up to last year’s Black Market album, and Black Dollar and Renzel Remixes mixtapes. Ross is reportedly currently working on Self Made 4 along with the rest of his Maybach Music Group crew.
