Respected Hip Hop artist and entrepreneur Rick Ross has been touring steadily this year in support of his tenth album, Port of Miami 2, which was released in August through Ross’ Maybach Music Group and Epic Records and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart.

The tour, including dates with DaBaby and Jeezy, largely wound down in late October, but it’s being reignited for a few one-off dates, including a Cincinnati show that will also feature Jim Jones, another esteemed Hip Hop veteran.

A sequel to Ross’ highly acclaimed debut album from 2006, Port of Miami 2 features a jaw-dropping guest list (unsurprising given his status in the biz) that includes Lil Wayne, Drake, Denzel Curry, John Legend, Meek Mill, the late Nipsey Hussle and many others. The album was greeted with generally good reviews, with many stating it was some of Ross’ best music in years.

Likewise, reviews from the Port of Miami 2 have been glowing. Ross reportedly does a crowd-engaging retrospective of his hits from over the years, from “Hustlin” to “Aston Martin Music” to “Stay Schemin’,” with the newer material lightly sprinkled in throughout.

10 p.m. Friday. $40-$125. OTR Live, 209 E. 12th St., Over-the-Rhine, otrlivemusic.com.
