With just a week until the March 4 release of Mastermind, Rick Ross stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to frighten all the olds and perform “The Devil Is A Lie.” He was without Jay Z for the performance, but he did have some help from The Roots, giving those horn blares some added oomph, with ?uestlove ?illing it as usual. You’ll also notice Rozay’s DJ added some live cutting, which is always appreciated.
Even sandwiched between a bunch of super-thirsty reminders of the album’s release date, it was clear this track still bangs. I feel like I should be hearing it blasting from a lot more cars than I currently do whenever I’m walking around NYC. Maybe next week that’ll change.
Watch the performance up top.
