When you're a boss, every move is calculated. Nothing is left to chance, and no opportunity is wasted. On the surface, it might seem like Rick Ross is just making music, but the Maybach Music CEO isn't just putting work in the studio. When Rozay drops his sixth solo album, God Forgives, I Don't, on July 31, he will have completed a plan over a year in the making.

From the album's menacing title to its meaningful cover, from its future rap hits to its well-laid concepts, the Bawse sat down with MTV News at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Washington D.C. for our Hip-Hop Music Preview, breaking down, in his own words, his long-awaited God Forgives, I Don't.

The Title: God Forgives, I Don't
"I knew approaching this album, I wanted to approach titling it a lot different from previous albums. I wanted it to be strong and impactful. The first half is God Forgives: It's a lot of us need forgiveness. I Don't represented the street aspect of life. I feel we have both sides that we deal with in life. I gave 'em one of those feelings that it was a motion picture, a masterpiece, five-star."

Hip-Hop Preview Week 2012: Rick Ross
The Album Cover
"We actually used a church to shoot some photos in. I remember sitting in the church just waiting for the photographer, and I remember sitting in there praying, just being thankful. I knew I wanted to have 10 Jesus pieces on. Of course, one Jesus piece was always fly, but I just wanted 10. I just wanted to go to that next level."

The Recording Process
"I keep my circle extremely small when it comes to me recording my music. I put the music together before I even put the words to the music, because I feel it's easier for me to write the words and make it fit the music versus me finding music that can fit my words."

The Cinematic Influence
"This may be 'Inglourious Basterds,' man. We gonna peel your scalp back on this one. Quentin Tarantino, that's one of the vibes I was in when I titled the album. I wanted to approach it like a film."

The Tracks
"Hold Me Back": "That's the struggle, the angle I wanted to take on that record once again from somebody who may not have much, but that don't determine where you end up in the game. From struggle to triumph, as long as you stay loyal with your clique and your family, you can overcome whatever. That's how I feel."

"Amsterdam": "It's based around the red light district, but I kinda flipped it where being a boss you gotta get approval for a green light. I'm one of those people you can't green light. As long I've been in this game, there's been a lot of talk, but ain't nobody stepped on these 11 and a half's. The reason being: This is the red light district, you can't move on this side."

"Diced Pineapples": "When I got out of the hospital — you know, I had a seizure last year — when I was leaving, the doctor told me, 'You gotta eat some more fruit, drink you some water, eat fruit and just relax for a little while.' My fruit of choice was pineapples. For the next three weeks, I woke up every morning and ate diced pineapples, and I put the concept together. Drizzy came in, as well as Wale, and it's kinda like, 'She could be my diced pineapple. This special lady, she could be what I wake up to every morning and help me get by every day."

The Five-Word Description
"Classic, untouchable, boss, success, revenge. If you doubted us being here three years ago, five years ago, you don't understand hip-hop, you don't understand the power of rap music."

It's easy, you just discuss your expectations, and your opinion on the singles, videos, vlogs, and snippets. Or you could discuss the production.

GFID will do at least 200k the first week. There's no way it will be below that. All the promo,etc he has gotten. But i don't know about going platinum in a short time though. Cause like i said before, if you music doesn't appeal to the young white demographic, it may not go plat. It will prob go plat eventually though. Ross made that sh*t clearly obvious he not crossing his music over and thats fine with me. The only street rapper I know with a huge white audience is jeezy and thats only because he got alot of his fans from jay. I'll prob buy this album just like i bought nas's. Judging by the snippets, it a.ssume the album will be another solid production a usual. I also predict that the same cats trolling and bashing ross will be the same ones bumping the album just like all of the other productions by ross. Musically, its probally ross's best production. Lyrically i cant say the same, cause the snippets are too short.

Somebody out there got this album right now though but theyre sitting on it.. i heard it might leak tomorrow but I not sure.
