Watch: Rick Ross- “Pinned to the Cross” f/ Finn Matthews
by Derêka K. Bennett
On his massive estate, Rick Ross is captured in his new music video, spitting lyrics on his latest single, “Pinned to the Cross.” The video is powerful, starting off with footage and dialogue from protests against police brutality.
“When you forced to be fearless strangers consider you callous/Detrimental to my upbringing, I felt so abandoned,” Ross raps. “I was lost in confusion, therefore had nothing to lose/Now, I’m running the racket, n***a got cut from the noose/I just want to be free, another Black man on the run/We was pinned to the cross since our birth under the sun.”
