Album: Teflon Don
Label: Maybach Music/Def Jam
Some artist earn your respect through out the years and some artist just make music that’s forces you to respect their craft wether your a fan or not. An approaching the release date of his fourth Album Teflon Don, Rick Ross has done both “Hands Down” and seems to on his way to his fourth straight #1. An with records such as “Free Mason” ft Jay-Z(Produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League)and John Legend Soulful Vocals it’s hard to believe that Ross will be slowing down anytime soon with lines such as “I go to the grave before I be a bitch nigga/ better behave you dealing with some rich niggas/ started in the ghetto now we worldwide/ Multiplying a I pray to GOD that we never die”! On songs such as “Tears Of Joy” ft Cee-Lo(Produced by No I.D.), where Rozay displays that vulnerability that most rappers shy away from discussing which is one of the things that has now separate him from the average artist not to mention his lyrical ability clearly shown on “Maybach Music III“. On “Maybach Music III” which features two of the best in the game when it comes to lyrics in T.I. and Jadakiss all three displays their best bars over the amazing production by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and the lovely harmonies of Erykah Badu to make the perfect collaboration to the “Maybach Music Trilogy“. Keeping the balance of making great music and street anthems Ross seems to have the “Best Of Both Worlds” right now. With the ability to create “Aston Martin Music” ft Drake and Chrisette Michele(Produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League)which is a sure summer hit the ladies and fellas will love to “B.M.F.(Blowing Money Fast) ft Styles P and “MC Hammer” ft Gucci Mane for the Streets which were both Produced by Lex Luger. My only two problems on Teflon Don is the albums opener “I’m Not A Star“. With the tone of the entire album I felt like the opener should of been a little bigger than what was put fourth and “No.1” ft Trey Songz and Diddy could of been cut. But Ross makes up for that on two of my personal favorites from the album “All The Money In World” ft Raphael Saadiq(Produced by The Olympicks)where Ross shows that he has not forgotten about the things that means
the most to him, and “Live Fast, Die Young” featuring as well as produced by Kanye West. Other bangers to keep on repeat are “I’m Not A Star“, Super High” ft Ne-Yo” .
