Southern rapper Rick Ross recently sat down with SOHH to explain what predictions he had for his Triple C's team in 2010.
For Ross, he feels this year will mark some of the best music of his career.
"Honestly, n*ggas can talk sh*t but it's hard to really make predictions other than lord willing we'll be still here, you know what I"m saying," Ross told SOHH. "N*ggas here, free, alive, other than that, we just gonna make the best music we gonna make. And I feel it's gonna compete with the best music that's being made right now." (SOHH)

Ross is also expected to drop his forthcoming Birdman collaboration album and film later this year.
"We gonna let that [album] go next year," Ross promised in a November 2009 interview. "The whole concept behind it was we wanted to do different so and do a movie. Taking the movie process is a whole lot longer than the music, so we've just been leaking records here now just to let 'em know it's coming. But we actually start filming at the very end of this year." (Hip Hop Official)
