Rapper Rick Ross has had a few rough months.

In addition to being sued by the real Rick Ross, better known as former Los Angeles drug trafficker ‘Freeway’ Ricky Ross, for using his namesake, the heavyweight rapper has also had his upcoming album Mastermind delayed multiple times.

But no more.

Ross with assistance from famed video director Hype Williams announced the upcoming release date (March 4th)  in this uniquely odd trailer:

The album, which is Ross’ sixth, is expected to be littered with guests like Future and Jay Z and features production from the likes of J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Scott Storch, DJ Khaled, K.E. on the track and more.

It’s also been reported the album, which will be released on Def Jam records in association with Maybach Music and Slip-N-Slide Records was mixed by Diddy.

Ross had said the album was expected to be released in December of 2013, this after the album had already been pushed back, but more time was needed to press the record.

The album’s second single, Devil is a Lie featuring Jay Z is among the best selling currently on iTunes.
