You know, I realize that i might've been a bit too harsh on that ✖✖✖✖✖ and even hyprocrite.

He was a c.o for 1.5 year but nothing proves he didnt sell coke etc. and he grew up poor, and as far as I can tell even the greats like raekwon dont have a prob wit the ✖✖✖✖✖... I was treating him unfairly compared to all the other rappers named after a drug dealer and claim to have been one.

Its just entertainment, ye, but stillz, ah fuck that.

The album sounds cool.

Whatever Ross's real background is who cares. The rap lifestyle that most of these people are claiming is about as real as the stories on WWE. I'd dare to say 90% of the popular rappers out aren't living the thug life they had claimed they are in songs, but you know what? Ever since the whole C.O. thing came about with Ross his music has gotten extremely better. Mafia Music? So damn good. Ross has been going so hard lately and hes easily one of the best mainstream rappers out right now.

Either way, downloaded the leak and then purchased first thing this morning. Definitely worth the purchase smokeyface

well i would say its better than the second, but not the first
Jul 20, 2010 @ 17:24
Bought the album today, im on 'Free Mason'.. so far so good.

Edit: 'No.1' is pretty good, but it sounds just like Diddy's "Hello Goodmorning" and It would be way better if Diddy wasn't on it. ✖✖✖✖✖ don't even write his own shit...
Jul 20, 2010 @ 17:54
goddamn this shit is getting too much hype. it's good, but not THAT good. ross starts fuckin with puff and everyone hops on his nuts or wut? i vote teflon don for most mediocre "BEST ALBUM OF 2010"

I respect the Bawse. He went from rapping things like
"car smell like blue cheese", and "I fucks pianos", to
not getting slaughtered by Jay Z on a song.
Prawps.

'Austin Martin Music' Sounds like 'Light Up' due to Drake's part of the chorus, still a good track.
'All over the world' is a good outro, but Ross shoulda left the Chorus for Raphael... shit is jokes lol.

And this is a really short album, but worth the $10.

No comparison unless you're talking about weight.
Rick Ross makes dope ass songs but he's not lyrical as Biggie was


lol ya?

Ricky Rozay is stirring up trouble again because of a name, but this time it's because of the name of his album. His album, Teflon Don, was the nickname of mob boss John Gotti and his grandson is speaking out for his grandfather.

Gotti's grandson, Carmine Agnello, said Ricky should have gotten the ok from his family first.

My grandfather paid his dues for that nickname. That was my grandfather's life.

He should have asked for permission. A standup, respectable guy would come and ask 'If I could use the nickname. I think he's a great artist, but you can't just start calling yourself that to sell records ...He wants to go for that whole image, but hey, be yourself.

Agnello also took a quick shot at Ricky.

Only in America can you go from being a corrections officer to calling yourself Teflon Don. (lol)

Haters Gon Hate.

Another thing I like about this album is that there is less 'songs for the ladies' on here. I Think "Austin Martin Music" is the only song that can be considered a song for the girls.

El. Oh. El. Do the names Big Boi, The Roots, or Eminem mean anything to you?
Jul 21, 2010 @ 17:57
I wonder if this will go to #1 in the US or Eminem will get another week.

You know, I've liked every ross album up until now. And although I've only given each song one or two shots, I can't say I'm a fan. I just didn't get the solid/hard hitting feeling with any of the songs like some of his other albums (especially beat wise). Maybe if I have it on repeat for a few days some of them will grow on me. But then again, I figure if I have to force it, then it's not that good to begin with. Also, way too many people not named rick ross are on this album. This honestly felt like a mixtape except with slightly not as shitty production value. Just sayin.

Unfortunately, this is a pass for me and I'm pretty dissapointed. I expected more out of this album but alas, here we are. Maybe next time, slugger?
Jul 22, 2010 @ 02:19
its funny how foos hate on ross for being a former C.O and saying he sold coke. Has anyone thought that he could have actually done that? im pretty sure there are plenty of crooked ass people involved with the law longer than him that are still pushing weight currently. this man has what a rapper needs to have a career in this shit, a really good ear for beats, good flow and a command in his voice. stop hating let that boy cook smokeyface.

I don't know that you can call this album classic by any means, unless our definition of "classic" is completely different.

Also, some would argue authenticity is important. Sure, it's all music and that's fine. Throw some lyrics on some decent beats and you have an album. Portray a certain image and you're even better off with the masses. But hip hop/rap is supposed to be so much more than that.

Look, if you want to talk about drugs and poverty and the struggle (despite not being involved in it to the extent that you claim), that's fine, we get it. But do it in a way that says "this stuff exists"...not in a way that says "I say this stuff not because I care that it exists, but if I'm perceived a certain way then I'm more popular".

It's completely different when you say that I am aware of these issues and I want to make you aware of them so I portray them in my music because it's a great medium to connect to strangers, than to say I used to slang crack on the corners and I run from the police....when you really don't.

Say what you want, just don't front about it.

Ross being a c.o over shadowed the fact that he was in the streets too. I really don't care what he did, but the wordplay, production etc makes this a classic album.

Don't badmind me.
