Rick Ross Feat. Gunplay, French Montana, Yo Gotti & Lil Wayne - "Hold Me Back" (Remix)By Noisey Staff
Last night marked something that we can pretty much all agree was incredibly historical. With Barack Obama's re-election, we've ensured we still live in an America where everyone (especially women and minorities) can expect the same basic rights and freedoms as anyone else. When we re-elected Obama, America as a nation was saying that it valued progress, mandating that this nation was moving in the right direction and that we should keep it moving that way. This is something we all should be thankful for, even if for some reason you voted for Mitt Romney and still have any interest in clicking on a write-up of a Rick Ross remix.
Last night marked another historic occasion, however: Rick Ross released the remix to "Hold Me Back," and this time he got Gunplay, French Montana, Yo Gotti and Lil Wayne for the thing. This is the drug-and-violence-crazed Gunplay's first verse since being incarcerated, then tried and sentenced to house arrest, so congrats to him for getting back in the booth. He might be the best rapper alive right now, so we all dodged the collective bullet with him not going the way of French's partner Max B. Anyways, this remix is pretty great. Stream it below.
