After Chris Rock announced the release date for Rick Ross’s forthcoming album Rather You Than Me, the MMG boss unveils the cover art, with a little help from Martha Stewart.
Fittingly, the domestic icon unveiled the cover as the decoration on top of a “beautiful cake” on social media.
“Hi friends,” said Stewart in a video. “Rick Ross, my friend, has his world premiere next week, on March 17, of his ninth album, Rather You Than Me. Designed by Mr. Brainwash, here’s the cover, right on this beautiful cake.”
Later, she adds: “His single, the title ‘I Think She Like Me,’ I think it should be ‘I Know I Like Him.'”
The cover finds the Bawse rocking fur, a golden crown, and sunglasses in front of a graffiti background. Hands clasped together as if in prayer, he also has smoke escaping his mouth.
Ross and Stewart have some history together. They even flirted with one another during an episode of “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.”
The cover was officially unveiled today, but had previously been seen last month. It was in the background of a meeting Rozay had with Sylvia Rhone and L.A. Reid at his new label, Epic Records.
Mr. Brainwash, who designed the artwork, will also team up with Rozay at Boss Basel, an art exhibition with original photos and artwork by the famed street artist. Boss Basel is set to take place Thursday (March 9) in New York. Aside from hosting that event, Rozay will be hosting the MTV Woodies on March 16, just one day before Rather You Than Me drops.
The follow-up to 2015’s Black Market features the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted single “I Think She Like Me,” plus appearances from Nas, Gucci Mane, Young Thug, and Future.
