Rozay’s upcoming album Rather You Than Me was announced last November and the hype ensued. Let’s talk about why. This is the first album that will be released via his new venture with Epic records. Ross had a long running career with the historic Def Jam label and it was assumed that he would renew his contract with them. Instead he chose to join the new energy that L.A. Reid is building with a roster that includes Future, DJ Khaled, Travis Scott, Jidenna, 21 Savage, Yo Gotti and more.

Ross announced the name of the forthcoming album via a sweatshirt he fashioned on the red carpet at the AMA’s.
