As celebrities made their way to the red carpet at tonight's American Music Awards, Rick Ross tweeted a cryptic hashtag #RYTM to start a buzz about what is seemingly a new project in the works.

The hashtag is an acronym for the Boss' new album title Rather You Than Me. To begin the album's rollout, Renzel then appeared with a black long-sleeved shirt with Rather You Then Me pasted on the front for a on-camera interview with his longtime Miami cohort DJ Khaled, billonaire Mark Cuban, and his daughter Alexis.

The Maybach Music Group's Twitter account backed up Rozay's tweet to announce that the new album is set for release in early 2017. The first single is "Buy Back the Block," which features Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz.

Rather You Than Me is the first album he's dropping on his new label home Epic Records. This will be Rozay's follow-up to Black Market, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 album chart upon its release in December 2015. His mixtape Black Dollar dropped three months prior in September that year.

Black Market was the Maybach Music boss' last album released on Def Jam, where he spent 10 years on the label's roster.
