Rick Ross has finally dropped his long-awaited album ‘Rather You Than Me’ with a diss track aimed at Birdman. 

Ross first announced his ninth solo album during the American Music Awards in November last year and has had fans waiting ever since.

This is Ross’ first project since his 2015 release ‘Black Market’. ‘Rather You Than Me’ brings with it a star-studded lineup with the likes of Chris Rock, Nas, Future, Gucci Mane, Young Thug, Jeezy, Meek Mill, Wale, Ty Dolla $ign, Raphael Sadeeq, Yo Gotta and more. 

The album also includes a track called ‘Idols Become Rivals’, featuring Chris Rock, that takes direct shots at Birdman. 

Ross has had a longterm relationship with Birdman, head of Cash Money Records, and regularly collaborates with Cash Money stars including Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj. 

Birdman and Ross’ relationship has faltered recently because Birdman has allegedly not been paying his artists and Ross has made this pretty clear in his new track, ‘Idols Become Rivals’.

Ross also showed his support for Lil Wayne on Instagram that got a response from Lil Wayne saying, “I needed that”. 

In a recent open letter, Ross wrote: “this album is more than just another project for me. It’s a product of strength, perseverance and determination.

“‘Rather You Than Me’ is a testimony. My testimony and if you a real ni**a, no matter where you from, you can relate to this.”
