Hip hop artist and Music mogul Rick Ross must have a pretty extensive publicity team, who never fails to come up with catchy ways to gain traction for his newest projects. With that being said the promotion for this month’s venture an album entitled “Rather you than me” set to release March 17 certainly displays this same creativity and skillful advertising.
Though the cover art is rather for the album is pretty typical, the promotion is anything but that. Ross decided to ask one of his newest friends Martha Stewart to promote the album the best way she knows how, through cooking. Martha decided to bake a cake with the albums cover art straight across the top. In a photo released on instagram the cooking connoisseur is holding the cake with an image of the rapper displayed in the background.
We couldn’t see a better way to promote an album. The two have reportedly become rather close over the last few months since his appearance on her new cooking show “Martha and Snoop” with rapper Snoop Dog. since than each have made an effort to lend a hand on each others projects. As many Ross fan know “Rather You Than Me” is Ross’ ninth album. Debuting multiple hit projects over the past few years. However sources have speculated that this albums is sure to be among his best.
Reportedly including features from some of hip hops elite naming Gucci Mane, Future, Young Thug, Meek Mill and many more. Ross even ties in a short comedy skit from Chris Rock displaying once again his knack for originality. The Miami boss has been seen heavily promoting this project even going as far as wearing a sweatshirt with the title of the project on it at the American Music Awards. With that in mind we should expect nothing but hits the day the album is released. Look out for the album and be sure to tell us what you think.
