Rick Ross's last couple albums have left something to be desired. With Black Dollar coming out this Thursday, hope springs eternal that he'll regain his peak form. Despite his pear-induced weight loss, Ross is about to turn 40 years old, potentially on the downslope of his rap career and in need of boost.

"Foreclosures" was an auspicious lead single, and if Black Dollar can sustain that sort of quality, it could cement Ross' reputation as one of the most successful rappers of the past decade.
