Rick Ross has been in the rap game for over 10 years and “Rather You Than Me” is the rapper’s ninth studio album as a successor to his 2015 studio album “Black Market.” The album garnered main stream attention with the song, “Idols become your Rivals,” a track where Ross takes shots at fellow MC, Birdman and features hilarious opening commentary from comedian, Chris Rock. The 12-song project features the biggest names in hip-hop today including the talents of: Future, Nas, Jeezy and more.
The lead single, “I Think She Like Me,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, is a catchy song that really gets you anticipated for the rest of the album. The first promotional single “Trap Trap Trap” featuring Atlanta native Young Thug and Wale really pumps you up and makes you want to keep the song on repeat. The song, “Black Market” peaked at the #6 position on the US music charts and on the US R&B and US Rap charts, the album held the #2 spot. These tracks on this project will have you feeling yourself vibing out for weeks to come.
Rick has produced nothing but consistent songs over his impressive tenure and shows no sign of slowing down. Overall this album is another Rick Ross classic.
