Sixteen – Rick Ross
“Sixteen” â Rick Ross
I played this track for my father a couple weeks ago. He’s a 53-year-old classic rock fanatic, who probably wouldn’t know a Rick Ross song if it fell on him (which is a hell of a lot better than having Rick Ross himself fall on you). Before “Sixteen” was over my dad was already downloading the album. Mr. Benjamin’s 64-bar verse (yes, 64) cruises through a variety of creative flows, narrating the story of his upbringing. By journeying personal experiences that include self-esteem woes, heartbreak, and a struggle to provide for his family, he has crafted a masterfully woven autobiography.
