Rick Ross - "Came Ain't Based On Sympathy"
A majority of the images that appear when googling the name Rick Ross are photos of a man wearing shades.
Fittingly, the sunglasses are a great metaphor for the man himself, as there has always been a sense of separation between the real Rick Ross and the one we've heard for the past decade.
Rather You Than Me, Rozay’s ninth studio album, feels as if he finally decided to allow the world to truly see the man who is behind the shades.
There's a refreshing honesty to his lyricism, which is carefully mixed in with all the luxury boasts and mafioso imagery that is usually rooted in anything but self-reflection.
After nine albums, the Ross formula hasn’t changed much, but he has found a new way of repackaging all his strengths to create a project embodying all the qualities that have made his career longlasting. Rather You Than Me is the best beginning-to-end album Ross has created since Teflon Don.
