Rick Ross Reveals ‘Rather You Than Me’ Album Cover
Update (Feb. 28, 6:33 p.m. EST):
Epic Records has confirmed this is not the album cover for Rather You Than Me.
Rick Ross is readying his ninth solo album, Rather You Than Me, with the release date but a few weeks away. Early Tuesday morning (Feb. 28), Ross shared what looks like album artwork on Twitter, blending contradictory imagery in a way similar to the artwork for Meek Mill's past two studio albums. As seen below, the Rather You Than Me artwork shows a gold uzi doubling as a crucifix.
The new album will be Ross's first through Epic, the rapper penning an open letter late last month on the release. “This album is more than just another project for me. It’s a product of strength, perseverance, and determination,” Ross writes. “Rather You Than Me is a testimony. My testimony, and if you a real nigga, no matter where you from, you can relate to this.”
The album’s lead single, “I Think She Likes Me” featuring Ty Dolla $ign dropped around the same time with a video directed by Ryan Snyder. In the weeks since, Ross as well released “Summer 17,” a hard-nosed compliment to the lush sounds of “I Think She Like Me.”
Rather You Than Me will be Ross’s first album since Black Market, which dropped at the tail end of 2015. The MMG mogul dropped two albums in 2014, so the year off last year was somewhat atypical. Ricky Rozay returns to form soon though, with his latest out on March 17.
Peep what seems to be the album cover below what would be the first Ross album to not feature the rapper on the front.
