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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
