Rick Ross’s Cover For ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’.


In the 1980s, Mr. T was the toughest dude on television. Homie even got then-First Lady Nancy Reagan to sit on his lap and discuss ways to battle the crack epidemic. And in 1984, he dropped Mr. T’s Commandments, a kid-friendly record that encouraged children to stay in school and away from drugs.  But T’s reputation as America’s baddest bearded black man has since faded and a new breed of badass has emerged — the dudes of Maybach Music Group, and particularly its captain, Rick Ross.  However, Mr. T’s influence is very much alive as evidenced by Mr. Ross’s newly unveiled God Forgives, I Don’t cover art.
