CRITIC REVIEWS

XXL

Whereas his 2015 album, Black Market, revolved around entrepreneurship, ownership and authenticity, Rather You Than Me conflates all that we’ve come to love about Rick Ross.

80
Drowned in Sound

Rather You Than Me is another shiny addition to his catalogue, with Ross fusing his tough talk and knack for beat selection into a must-have for fans.

78
HipHopDX

Neither timeless nor immediately disposable, Rather You Than Me is an above average outing that displays why he’s steadily remained within the public eye without having a long line of record-breaking hits.

69
Pitchfork

The ninth Rick Ross album features tons of guests including Young Thug, Future, and Nas. As the Bawse enters his 40s, his bite has weakened, but he still owns his lane in luxury rap.

60
Rolling Stone

Rozay's newfound social conscience is welcome growth from the days when he bragged about knowing the real Manuel Noriega, but he's only woke to a certain point.

60
Exclaim!

It isn't without its flaws, but Rather You Than Me positions Rick Ross as the boss he's always claimed to be, his raps reinforced by lofty, gold-plated production and added lyrical depth that's as refreshing as a glass of Belaire Rose.

AllMusic

Ross' mixtures of outrageous fantasy and sobering reality, side-splitting humor, and piercing vengeance, are intermittently as potent as ever.

The Needle Drop
Rick Ross takes a more introspective approach on his latest album.

"i stick my dick in her and tell her my net worth"
-Rick Ross, game ain't based on sympathy, verse 2

just get that picture in your head.

overall, this album is like a two foot long Cuban cigar. shit, it's fancy. makes you feel luxurious and all, but you get halfway through it and it gets to be a little much.

While not the most prolific rapper, Rick Ross keeps the fire burning by adding proper layers to his tracks and providing a nice balance of easygoing and sharpness, which made for a well-organized and cool album. My Score: 124/180 (Good) = 69/100
