Towards the tail end of last year, Rick Ross announced his ninth album Rather You Than Me in a rather colorful way. He appeared on the stage of the American Music Awards to perform DJ Khaled’s single “Do You Mind,” wherein he was decked out in a hoodie with the title emblazoned across it. And now, to unveil the upcoming album’s cover, he has orchestrated an even wilder stunt: a reveal courtesy of Martha Stewart.
Yes, that’s right. The queen of homemaking gave the world its first glimpse of the artwork for Ross’s Rather You Than Me, sharing the big news via Twitter. The album art was utilized as the center piece for some sort of delightful chocolate gateau, though no word yet on whether it was edible. This only adds fuel to the fire of Ross and Stewart’s love affair, a relationship first spawned when Ross appeared on her show in November and and was subsequently spoonfed by the TV star. Who knows what will happen next?
Rather You Than Me is out on Friday, March 17. Revisit the video for “Same Hoes” below.
