Rick Ross has recently dropped a visual for his 2015 track “Free Enterprise,” featuring John Legend. Although the song came out on his 2015 project Black Market, the election of Donald Trump as president has prompted Ross to drop a politically aimed video. In this video, Rick Ross points a finger at the faults of Donald Trump, and society as a whole.
This video, directed by Ryan Snyder, shows Rick Ross in front of an inverted American flag, symbolizing the harsh, unequal reality that many face in this country.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Ross says, “I would never advocate violence on Trump or anyone. It’s lyrical assassination. That’s me being a poet, putting words together in my art form, with no violence in my heart at all,” he said. “Clarify that. Matter of fact, my cameraman was Trump’s caddy at his golf course for five years, and he says Trump is cool as fuck.”
Besides the blatant criticism of Donald Trump, Rick Ross also talks about many issues plaguing the country today like the mass incarceration of black men. The statistic, “1 in 3 Black Men Can Expect To Go To Prison In Their Lifetime,” flashed across the screen as the music played in the background.
