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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Not really one bad song on the album, probably his best album to date, improved overall production, and shows evolution in his lyricism. Hip hop fans that appreciate dope verses combined with a variety of styles should enjoy this one.

I must admit - I was hyped for this new release. And it unfortunately gone with the wind. Mediocre...

These lyrics suck, as a rapper he's really dull, not even remotely engaging flow wise, has barely any personality to speak of imo, as far as i'm concerned this is just another typical Rick Ross project in regards to the album's content and substance. However, the album is pretty nicely groomed and very cohesive, some decent beats throughout the album too, but Rick Ross just simply bores me as an emcee, and it was long as fuck too. In the end I didn't enjoy this at all, but it's definitely one ... read more
