Southern rapper Rick Ross confirmed that Jay-Z will be featured on his upcoming Teflon Don solo album but did not reveal any other names.
Ross said fans should 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."
Rick Ross has been dropping more freestyles than Weezy lately, but the Bawse is finally coming clean with the first official single from his fourth album Teflon Don, due June 29. Ross breezes through "Super High" with help from labelmate Ne-Yo and production by DJ Clark Kent and The Remedy. "Magnificent (Part 2)," anyone? (Rap-Up)
Last January, Ross talked about the project being one of his biggest to date.
"It's a lot of Internet, a lot of online chatter going on -- a lot of talk of this new Rick Ross/John Legend collaboration," Ross said. "I'm confirming it. It's official. We got another record...Ah man, I don't know how to describe this one. 'Magnificent' was one of my favorite records off Deeper Than Rap. But the new John Legend [collaboration] is most definitely next-level vibe. We back at it. It's most definitely creative. Shout-out to John Legend -- I think he makes a huge contribution to music. Myself, I try to get better and better with every rhyme I make -- every rhyme I bring to the table, I want to make sure it's more potent than the last. I'm setting this album, Teflon Don, to be the album of my career." (MTV)
DJ Khaled also promised that the music from Ross' album would be nothing less than spectacular.
"Maybach Music, Def Jam, 'Mafia Music 2' video shoot, we at one of our mansions," Khaled said earlier this year. "[We're] just doing it real big. You know Ross got the album, Teflon Don, coming. It's gonna be a problem, it's gonna be crazy. The album is sounding magnificent. It's some boss sh*t, it's some Teflon Don sh*t. Make sure you check out Ross on my album, Victory, March 2nd. That's real soon, it's gonna be a problem, you feel me?" (Exclusive Access)
