Mavado f/ Akon + Rick Ross – “Rise Up” | New Music

mavado-featuring-akon-and-rick-ross-rise-up

Mavado and Rick Ross join forces again for the dancehall DJ’s new song “Rise Up,” also featuring Akon.

The song attempts to send an inspirational message as self-proclaimed ‘gangsta for life’ Mavado shrugs off his image and looks to empower people as he sings of banding together to keep fighting against injustice. Akon’s chorus echoes the same testament as he sings, “But we won’t stay down, we rise up/ We gonna stand our ground, we rise up.

Ross adds a short verse towards the end, but instead of talking about general injustice taking place in the world, he instead raps about his own, smaller troubles before segueing into talk of his riches on the Jerry Wonder-produced song.
