Rick Ross No Shirt Censored
2012 was another very successful year for Ross' career. He started the year by premiering his Rich Forever mixtape to universal acclaim. Ross' MMG camp released their second compilation, Self Made Vol. 2 in June 2012. Less than a month later, Ross' fifth studio album, God Forgives, I Don't, was released on July 31, 2012 after a few delays. Upon its release, the album charted at number eight on the UK Albums Chart and number two on the UK R&B Albums Chart, making it Ross's highest-charting album and first top 10 album in the United Kingdom. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 218,000 copies. Ross premiered four songs: "So Sophisticated" featuring Meek Mill, "Touch'N You" featuring Usher, "Hold Me Back", and "3 Kings" featuring Dr. Dre and Jay-Z. The album was certified gold in less than two months. To celebrate his accomplishment and promote his upcoming MMG Tour, Ross released a mixtape, The Black Bar Mitzvah in October. Rick Ross was nominated by The Source as its "Man of the Year".
