If Black Market represented a nostalgic Ricky Rozay, Rather You Than Me reverses course. A-list rappers are all over this, with Chris Rock even adding a touch of comic relief. Moments of vengeance are embellished by a clarity that comes from experience.
Ross paints a vivid picture—the brown bags, ankle monitors, pulling the ragtop back at a red light. “Apple of My Eye” and “Game Ain’t Based on Sympathy” contemplate the trap life as smoke twirls in the air. Rather You Than Me is the Bawse’s Michael Corleone moment: “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”
