I previous reported thatĀ Rick RossĀ confirmed that the December 13 release date for his forthcoming LP, entitledĀ God Forgive, I Donā€™tĀ is subject to change because of Ā his health issues. ā€œ[Because of] my little health situation, I had to postpone a lot of my groundwork,ā€ said Ross. ā€œAnd I feel like thatā€™s important for artists like myself.ā€

Yesterday Thursday (November 17), Island Def Jam Senior VP of Marketing Chris Atlas told Billboard that the label hopes to release the album “around first quarter, early second quarter” of 2012, with an official release date still to be determined.

I think we’re all aware of his recent health issue, and based on some of the minor setbacks with that, we weren’t able to confirm certain opportunities, because he physically wasn’t able to deal with certain things at the time,” says Atlas. “We want this to be his biggest album — we know it’s going to be his biggest album — so we did not want to pressure him into releasing an album based on the sake of a date.”
