Rick Ross hops on the phenomenal beat for Fat Joe's best song since "Damn" (yeah, we're counting) and basically obliterates it. Obliterating tracks, in fact, has become a surprising new habit for Ricky, who has lately developed the hunger of a brand-new rapper, hopping on every hot beat out there, flipping his flows and challenging himself to nastier metaphors. He's also, apparently, been reading fashion blogs: abutting his Rick Owens reference on latest single "Super High," "Slow Down" comes with the line shoes fresh out the plastic/ clean as Alexander McQueen in a casket, along with a little graffiti'd mural of the recently deceased design icon. (Special to Jay-Z: checkmate.) No insight as to who makes Rawse's fur vest, but we can say that wearing it makes him look like a really spectacular hungry werewolf.
