This Mastermind track finds Ross filled with paranoia. "Looking over my shoulder," he starts, "I can't trust a soul," before later revealing there are guns hidden under his bath towels. "Where I come from," the Miami MC revealed to Billboard magazine, "it's nothing to glorify. I come from Carol City. The city renamed it Miami Gardens. The streets renamed it 'Murder Gardens.'"
'It's something that I've witnessed my whole life," Ross added." I could never accept being murdered. I feel like I would have lost in the game of chess."
This is the third installment of Ross' "Mafia Music" series. "Mafia Music" was a track on 2009's Deeper Than Rap and "Mafia Music II" was recorded and intended to be released on Teflon Don back in 2010, but did not make the final album cut.
The track features the Jamaican Dancehall artists Mavado and Sizzla.
The song was produced by B!nk, who is noted for his work with Roc-A-Fella Records artists, including three tracks on Jay-Z's album, The Blueprint. He also made the Deeper Than Rap bonus cut "Cigar Music."
