This is surprisingly good. Not like all three of these dudes haven't been responsible for some of our favorite jams in the past, but usually when all-stars team up like this, it comes off kinda limp and not in any way as exciting as we'd hope. That said, like his beat selection, Rick Ross has impeccable taste in dancehall, working Mavado and Jah Cure here, and previously teaming up with Baby Cham on "Bullet," which depending on your mood is either pretty fun to listen to or just way too over the top. But that's Ross for you. Usually, anyway. "Like I See It" is much more subdued, built on rolling organs and chintzy horns. We could listen to him rapping over that reggae tick for hours.
