Southern rapper Rick Ross‘ upcoming solo album, Teflon Don, will reportedly be released this summer.
Based on new reports, the Miami rapper’s follow-up to Deeper Than Rap will invade stores in late June.
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. “[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)
Ross recently spoke with SOHH about predicting he would make the best records for 2010.
“Honestly, n*ggas can talk sh*t but it’s hard to really make predictions other than lord willing we’ll be still here, you know what I”m saying,” Ross told SOHH. “N*ggas here, free, alive, other than that, we just gonna make the best music we gonna make. And I feel it’s gonna compete with the best music that’s being made right now.” (SOHH)
