Rick Ross hopes to get lucky with his ninth studio album.

Which is why it’s dropping on St. Patrick’s Day. Rawse revealed the release date for his new album on social media, with some help from Chris Rock as well.

Rather You Than Me will be Ross’ first album at his new recording home Epic Records.

In an interview with Exclaim, Ross described the album saying:

“To me, the phrase ‘Rather You Than Me’ speaks to a n***a’s natural instinct to survive. What also makes [the title] and the album genius is that there’s a beautiful side to this as well, for instance, ‘I would rather you than me enjoy this fine glass of Belaire.’ There’s so many different ways to say it that can make this unique, but the title is speaking to the survivalists; the ones that refuse to lose.”

The official tracklist for the album has yet to be revealed but Ross has been spotted in the studio with Jay Z. He also spoke on one song in particular that listeners should look out for.

“I have a record on here titled ‘The Apple of My Eye,'” Ross told Exclaim. “The storyline is about me in my youth, and seeing my mom go through everything that she did. That in particular inspired me to be the boss I am today. On this record, I open the door to a lot of different things that people will appreciate.”
