Review: Rick Ross, “Teflon Don”

Rick Ross, Teflon Don
Def Jam

Rick Ross is known for farcical claims – remember when he said he knew Manuel Noriega on his breakthrough hit “Hustlin’”? For Teflon Don, he compares himself to infamous criminals Larry Hoover and Big Meech on “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast),” and on “Tears of Joy” he says he’s “Biggie Smalls in the flesh.” Lyrically, Rick Ross has improved since his mush-mouthed “Hustlin’” days, and shines amidst the best beats and guest stars money can buy. In fact, some “conscious hip-hop” 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.
