Rick Ross at Summer Jam XV at Comfort Dental Amphitheatre, 6/8/12
Eric Gruneisen Rick Ross last night in Denver.
The song "9 Piece" didn't garner as much enthusiasm from the crowd as "Aston Martin Music," the joint for the ladies, and "B.M.F," the cut for the gangsters. Giving the fans a taste of "So Sophisticated," a new track with Usher, Ross strangely turned his back to the crowd and chopped it up with his DJ for a moment while Usher's vocals played before re-joining the performance.
Leaving without rocking "Hustlin'" would have been blasphemous, and the crowd came alive with more fervor than they had the whole night when Ross queued up that track. Punctuating his performance with "Can I get a 'Rozay?!" to which the adoring crowd would respond with "Rozay!" Ross was commanding and convincing as a man about his money, his women and his gangster behavior. Sweating through his all black ensemble, Rick Ross might have battled the temperature and oxygen levels at this altitude, but in the end, he showed Denver who's boss.
