Rick Ross Releases Free Albert Anastasia EP For Memorial Day Weekend 2010
We all know that the music industry isn't the same anymore for all of these artists and record labels. And in hip-hop, artists have capitalized on being able to put out free mixtapes to promote their upcoming store-bound projects.
As such, Rick Ross has been preparing his Memorial Day Weekend promotional onslaught for the past couple months. His Teflon Don album is due out July 6, and to whet fans' appetites, he's put out a The Albert Anastasia EP, which really plays more like a mixtape.
For this effort, Rick Ross calls on his industry friends like Sean "Diddy" Combs (on the project's intro), Styles P, Yo Gotti, Birdman, Trey Songz, John Legend, Ne-Yo, Kool G. Rap, and Masspike Miles to contribute to the 13-track disc. Oh, and if you're wondering about the title, it's the name of a mob boss of the New York City's Gambino Crime Family from 1951 to 1957. (Interesting, considering Ross is dealing with a pesky little lawsuit involving famous criminals' names).
