Triple C's leader Rick Ross has opened up about his Teflon Don Jay-Z collaboration and said he is awaiting the right time to release it to the public.
Ross also hinted at Kanye West being involved on the song too.
"The majority of the details of the album I've been trying to keep under wraps so the fans can savor the music that much more," Ross said in a recent interview. "I most definitely have confirmed Jay-Z being on the album. [The song] is like an atomic bomb. I'm just waiting to push the button. Shout-out to Roc Nation. Shout-out to Kanye West...The funny thing is the way the record was done. I followed him to a few Blueprint 3 tour dates. I was chillin' in the back, smoked out. As soon as he gets offstage, we was chillin', vibing. His last date, which was in Vegas, he killed the show. We left the show, went to Tao for the afterparty. It was 30 bottles of Ace of Spades [champagne]. He left there, went and killed the craps table, the poker table. Then we got in the studio, and he laced me. It was the most phenomenal verse....It's not 'Maybach Music 3.' You could kill the rumors. This is something totally unexpected, and we talking that talk. I'm just excited, man. I'm expecting big things from this Teflon Don project." (MTV)
Ross recently said fans could expect a lot of surprises on his fourth solo album.
"We got a real nice line-up," Ross told DJ Envy in an interview. "I haven't actually picked all the records that's actually gonna make the album but for sure, my man Jay-Z is on the album. And we got some more surprises so you just gotta keep your ear to the streets...We got a lot of surprises man. We got a lot of big records on this project and you know, we're just keeping it intimate so we can surprise the fans and give them what they really want." ("Sucker Free Sundays")
The project is led by Ross' Ne-Yo collaboration, "Super High."
