Rick Ross has shared the release date for his 9th studio album titled ‘Rather You Than Me’. Rozay called on Chris Rock to share the release date for his Epic Records backed album.

Rock made the big announcement in a short video posted on social media, confirming that Ross’ follow-up to 2015’s Black Market is set to drop on March 17, 2017.

“What’s up to my man, Ricky Ross, Ricky Rozay, the greatest rapper alive,” said Rock. “He’s got a new album coming out called Rather You Than Me. It drops March 17.”

Chris’ involvement may be surprising given Rozay’s criticism of the comedian in the past. “Chris Rock, he a cornball,” he told Washington, D.C.’s 93.9 in March of last year. “Let’s keep it real…Chris Rock a cornball. And I’ma leave it right there. [His Oscars monologue] wasn’t funny. He ain’t the one. I’m not a fan of his.”

In 2014, Rozay also responded to a Rock joke from the 2014 BET Awards. “Dre has Beats,” the comedian said. “Rick Ross has Dia-BEATS.” Rozay’s response: “Chris Rock washed up haaaa.”.
