Rick Ross, Teflon Don
Rick Ross is known for farcical claims â€“ remember when he said he knew Manuel Noriega on his breakthrough hit â€œHustlinâ€™â€? For Teflon Don, he compares himself to infamous criminals Larry Hoover and Big Meech on â€œB.M.F. (Blowinâ€™ Money Fast),â€ and on â€œTears of Joyâ€ he says heâ€™s â€œBiggie Smalls in the flesh.â€ Lyrically, Rick Ross has improved since his mush-mouthed â€œHustlinâ€™â€ days, and shines amidst the best beats and guest stars money can buy. In fact, some â€œconscious hip-hopâ€ fans will be disheartened that Erykah Badu, Cee-Lo, and Raphael Saddiq are just a few that gladly sold out for the almighty Teflon Don.
