Earlier this month, Ross announced the creation of his new underground project.
“I’m in the lab cooking up Teflon Don, the album,” Ross said in an interview. “I’m also wrapping up a mixtape by the name of Albert Anastasia. The Albert Anastasia EP, hosted by DJ Smallz, lookout for that sh*t. We gonna drop that Memorial Weekend just for the streets…A few n*ggas used to call me ‘Fat Albert’ growing up. It was funny and then stumbled across another name. It’s cool, do your history. It’s most definitely a dope mixtape, it’s most definitely gonna have all new music on there. I’ve been releasing a few freestyles, just prepping the sh*t up. It’s gonna be a classic mixtape just to feed the real n*ggas in the streets just before I give them this Teflon Don.” (Spliff TV)
Aside from the music, Ross recently talked about dealing with the public’s misconceptions of him.
“There’s always gonna be misconceptions,” Ross explained in an interview with Boss Lady. “There’s always gonna be opinions and they not necessarily bad. Because a lot of times, people learn things in time. So what could have been a misconception last year, with a lot of people, isn’t a misconception this year. I always had thick skin growing up. I was always the fat black dude with the cheap shoes on. I always had thick skin when it came to jokes or whatever and I could always tell a good joke. I could tell a great joke…’ (Dr. Jays)
Ross is currently preparing the release of his new album, Teflon Don.
“It was a real good move,” Ross said about the delay. “I felt like the June 29th was a little too premature, that was the date my homie Diddy was coming out on anyway. And you know that’s the homie, so I felt like coming in the early July, middle July was best for me from day one. But it’s always good anyway man as long as you’re setting up all your pieces up in the right place. You’re setting your radio up, you’re setting your marketing up, the rest of that sh*t come in place when you got hits.” (Rap Radar)
