Rapper set to drop 11th studio album
Good news for rap fans, Rick Ross is set to release his 11th studio album on December 10th 2021.
The 45-year-old has been teasing the new project, ‘Richer Than I Ever Been’, since last year and has now finally released a tracklist.
Earlier this year, the rapper commented on his upcoming release, explaining: “Really, I feel this is the best album I’ve ever done. I make progress every day. I feel like some of the stuff I’m saying on this album is really going to separate it from others.”

Rick Ross trolled for original cover art version
Rick Ross took to Instagram last month to debut cover art for his 11th studio album, but unfortunately, the image was met with online trolling.
Seeing the rapper sport cream coloured gloves and plenty of bling, it seems as though not everyone was a fan of the album art.
Ross’ new look was compared to Queen Elizabeth, with others claiming that he resembled their grandma.
Thankfully, Jonathan Mannion, the photographer behind the image, took the criticism in his stride. Mannion explained: “We’re already going over a lot of people’s heads with this image.
“Let’s stay in that crisp fresh, rare air and let them rise to meet us if they’re able.”
