Album Reviews Rick Ross - Teflon Don

Much like the real John “Teflon Don” Gotti himself, Rick Ross has been able to maneuver around personal pitfalls throughout the last five years without his career suffering an abrupt ending. This same resiliency has subsequently allowed us to anticipate new material from the rapper rather than write it off with questionable expectations. Still, despite three albums and a handful of notable hit records, Ross has yet to put forth a full length project that truly defines his legacy within Hip Hop. With his latest effort, Teflon Don, the Floridian takes on the task of solidifying his status while balancing out appreciation from fans and critics alike.

Aside from an atrocious guest appearance from Gucci Mane on “MC Hammer,” Teflon Don flows thoroughly well. Lyrically, Ross hasn’t progressed since Deeper Than Rap. With that said, he has found a way to incorporate more into his music without compromising his mission as evidenced by a shortened track list and less dependency on tall tales about cocaine dreams. Ross prominently references his desire to become a “larger than life” figure, and in due time that characterization may be fulfilled. For now though, making quality music at a respectable rate will do just fine.
