Maybach Music Group’s Rick Ross is set to sit atop some stiff competition. The hip-hop veteran’s new Rather You Than Me album first-week sales projections have surfaced.

Based on initial estimates, Ross’ latest solo offering is set to battle for the top spot.

Ross has kept busy these past few days entertaining an overnight feud with music mogul Birdman.

“The record on my album, ‘Idols,’ that was basically, like, um, me just speaking my mind on that situation. You know, watching him come to the city, we embraced him and then watching him do bad business with some of my homies from my city – that ain’t the way it was designed to be.”


Weekend reports claim Baby believes Ross went at him to boost album sales.

Rick Ross made a new enemy when he took aim at Birdman … dissing him hard over his legal war with Lil Wayne and a bunch of other stuff. Sources close to Birdman tell TMZ … he’s pissed Rick dragged his name through the mud in his song “Idols Become Rivals.” We’re told Baby doesn’t appreciate the disrespect, especially because he sees the track as a lame publicity stunt.

Heading into the weekend, Baby briefly addressed Ricky Rozay calling him out.

“I don’t get caught up in h*e sh*t, man. I just keep doing what I’m doing and keep pushing,” Birdman told Billboard. “I don’t get caught up in that, I don’t play like that. I’m a man and I stand my ground and I do my thing. Numbers don’t lie, and that’s all I give a f*ck about: numbers, and puttin’ them up.” (Billboard)
