Rated-R Playboy keeping the ball rolling with a new record alongside the Boss, Rick Ross. Playboy, who most might remember as Rob Hicks, underwent a rebrand during the pandemic. However, that hasn't changed the quality of music. Rated-R Playboy continues to showcase his versatility with each release. Over the past few months, he's unveiled a handful of records that have us excited for his next body of work.
Since late October, he's shared some impressive records like "You So Nasty, I Miss You" with Lexx Stokes. The two delivered a sultry record that paired Lexx's luscious vocals while Rated-R Playboy showcased his versatile flows and intricate rhyme patterns. Then, he followed up with the BAHA BANK$-assisted "BBL," which infused the essence of Miami bounce as she came through with an ASMR flow. However, he's back with his first release of the year alongside Ricky Rozay.
Rated-R Playboy Taps Rick Ross For "Same Number"
On Friday, Rated-R Playboy returned with one of his best releases in recent times with "Same Number" ft. Rick Ross. The smooth, jazzy production fuses Memphis sounds with the haziness of the blog era sound. However, it's the braggadocious bars that fully showcase Playboy's wordplay and versatility. He finds different pockets throughout his verse while his bars showcase his resilience in the face of adversity.
As the beat flips to a more trap-centric, upbeat banger, Rick Ross emerges with an unmatched presence. As you could expect, Rick Ross delivers nothing but opulence, as he declares at the beginning of his verse, "Hunnid packs on the watch." Rozay doesn't hold back, either, though his verse does sound like it was recorded over a decade ago with bars like, "Bricks selling like ringtones." Still, it's effective in bringing that feel of Ross' early records that catered to the hungry corner hustlers looking to come up as corporate CEOs. By the time Ross verse comes in, it's evident that Rated-R Playboy ensured that he stood his own alongside one of the most descriptive rappers of our time. Check out their collab above.
Get your hands in the sky, put 'em on the wall
I'm the n***a with the gun, follow protocol
Seen a snake in the grass, had to mow the lawn
Three holes in his head like a bowling ball
