Rick Ross Snags Jay-Z, Kanye West & T.I. for Teflon Don

Rick Ross has an impressive lineup for his fourth solo studio album, Teflon Don. Along with Ne-Yo, who appears on the first official single for the disc, “Super High,” the Miami Boss also recruited such hip-hop heavyweights as Jay-Z, Kanye West, T.I. and Drake.

Known for his collaborations with the R&B elite (John Legend, The-Dream), Ross’s new LP also boasts features from Raphael Saadiq and Chrisette Michele. Producers on the project include DJ Clark Kent, the Olympics and past co-conspirators J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, the Runners and the Inkredibles.

All the above-metioned artists will also be included in Teflon Don: The Movie, a documentary DVD that a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the album.

Teflon Don is scheduled to hit stores on June 29 on Maybach Music/ Slip N’ Slide/Def Jam. —Elan Mancini

    • http://myspace.com/kidpistol Kid Pistol

      Anyone NOT listening to Rick Ross has good reason to say they don’t (shot credibility): Fake shades from D&G (I think it was, or maybe Gucci) and that whole CO ish.

      I’m just now starting listen to it, for the longest time I didn’t want to.

    • DJ Postman

      raazi36, what’s wrong with you? Go ALL the way back and get “Port of Miami.” Ross was working with Jay all the way back then on the “Hustlin’ (Remix).”

  • http://stuckfresh@hotmail.com STUCKFRESH

    I THINK THOSE 3 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ON ALL HIS ALBUMS! NO BULLSHIT! BUT YOU KNOW ROSS ONLY DROPS THAT HOTSHIT!

  • jtm

  • james

    Haha,

    This cat took his name from the notorious drug dealer trying to pass himself off as a boss! As if he runs weight. He was a CO.

    He’s all an act/image like a WWF star.

    If you like Ricky Ross than cool, but don’t believe that it’s not all put on.

  • matty21

  • ant-b

    yeah he might of lied about his past a little but ive been in the south all my life and back and forth out of miami, he had significant part he played in in the streets plus he puts out great music and not to mention every since he dropped deeper than rap 50 cent has pushed his album back multiple times!

    • James

      Hey ant-b,

      Fifties album was suppose to drop in 2008 but was pushed back b/c Em’s album was gonna drop. Then Em’s album didn’t come out at the end of 08 like he wanted to. Deeper than Rap didn’t come out till April 09.

      Not hating just the facts.

  • http://www.wtnrradio.com A-Beatz of WTNRRADIO.COM

    Ya gotta give it to the BAUS. I mean he comes from a questionable background to be in the Hip-Hop game…had 50 CENT on HIS ASS RELENTLESSLY for a while and he’s come out of it smelling like roses. The guy just puts out really good music. Just gotta give it him.

  • kazdoe

    Officer Ricky is a freaking fraudulent fake. Of course “he makes” good music…he has an enormous (relative) budget to pay for producers and “heavyweight” features. That ain’t Ricky..that is his label. Fake drug dealer clown…

    • http://www.wtnrradio.com A-Beatz of WTNRRADIO

      Look…that might be true and all..BUT..people really like his MUSIC. Unless he’s got GHOSTWRITERS which so far there is no proof of…he still delivers good music. He’s doin THE EXACT SAME THING EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE GAME IS DOING. Fake drug dealing clown…looks like it.. but you would think THAT WOULD SHUT HIM DOWN FOR GOOD in the Hip-Hop Game.. So why is it not happening? Cause the masses like bumpin his shit in their cars. How can you argue with what Im saying?

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    until u can actually look in the mirror and don’t have any fault, don’t speak on another man’s trangression. Don’t argue that he is in the spot light and u in ur mama basmement so u can front. That is not a good argument. The underworld is deep and its a lot of parts of the game that the average hip hop fan wouldn’t get. Besides that, its just music. Look at hip hop’s history and stop getting caught up in the i wanna be lifestyle. Ross is telling good stories and makes good music. U complain about the lean with it rock with it music. Now, u have someone with lyrics and good music at the top and now u lookin at his image. Yet, u turn the other way at Em’s image.

    • Deadly MIME

      I understand its just music, but you cant always dismiss it as just music cause its suppose to say something. Honestly Rick dont have the lyrics. All it is is just catchy word play that dont mean shit. What saves Rick Ross is the beats and the catchy shit and thats why ppl like his music. I agree with the others thats on my side, rick is a fake ass cop that is rappin bout stuff that he would arrest people like us for. I still dont get it.

      • STUCKFRESH

        PEOPLE LIKE WHO? YEAH RIGHT! IF YOU DIDNT HEAR SHIT REAL OUT HERE! IF ROSS WAS SO FAKE HE WOULD OF BEEN BITCHED OUT OR BEEN SHUT OUT! THE SOUTH IS FULL OF REAL NIGGAS AND THE FAKE GET EXPOSED DAILY! ALL I SEE IS ROSS FUCKIN WITH REAL NIGGAS AND GETTING REAL MONEY OUT HERE ON THESE REAL STREETS! WTF? NIGGA A C.O IS A REAL JOB! AND IF YOU BEEN LOCKED UP YOU WOULD KNOW THAT ALL C.O’S ARENT DICKS! ALOT OF THE CATS REGULAR NIGGAS AND WHITE BOYS THAT LOOK OUT AND MAKE MOVES BEHIND THE WALL! SO WHAT IS WITH THE COP SHIT? YOU BEEN PULL OVER AND HARASSED BY A C.O? HELL NO! ROSS IS ON HIS GRIND AND TALK BIG SHIT? SO YOU HATERS ARE FUNNY?

  • dcov

    All of Ross albums are hot. I dont care what anybody says. I know rap. Most of the people hating are 50 cent fans. It’s not Ross fault 50 been putting out weak albums since get rich or die tryin. And for the dude who says its only because of Ross’ production then how is that bad? 50 gets great production and puts out pure garbage.

  • http://www.wtnrradio.com A-Beatz of WTNRRADIO

    Well dcov…i almost agree with what you’ve said, but 50′s “WAR ANGEL” free album he put out was pretty hot. Maybe not as hot as “GET RICH” but then again…who’s put out a hotter album than their first effort? Really?

  • James

    Ricky is selling an image. That’s all he is. None of what he says is real. If you wanna take it as that than, word! but please don’t think he’s running anything.

    He’s not anything like the real Rick Ross.

    The record company is pushing him just like they do the Jonas Brothers.

    How about somebody go get an interview with Trick Daddy and get the facts

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    my thing is…trick daddy got skeltons in his closet. The realest of the realest have weak moments. Rick Ross is accused of being a CO not a cop. CO’s don’t have no privelages of a cop. Correctional Officers work in a prison. It was a job. Its a lot of COs that do dirt. Lot of cops that do dirt. Presidents that do dirt. Alot of drug dealers that are soft and can’t flip a profit. its all about the intent. I’m not a big rick ross fan but i am a huge hip hop fan and more imporantly a voice of the people. I don’t like the way the world is turning towards fake foes. like being shot is cool. talkin about the under world is accepted. the way the word snitched got flipped. its rules to the game and u can’t play without knowing the rules.

  • Rick Fawse

    “workin with the police, actin like you know me” ~Rick Ross

    Ross gets no pass from me. I dont care how tyte your rhymes are, you are frontin. GTFOH

  • RWord

    Ross at it again, going to destroy these 50cent dick riders, especially cats like:

    1. “Rick Fawse”
    2. Deadly MIM
    3. James
    4. kazdoe
    5. jtm

    just to name a few.

    hey you five i listed above, get 50 dick out your mouth. BOSS!!!

    BOSS!!!

    • http://www.bboycult.com $yk

      Bawse!

      What’s poppin’ Ross? You’ve been picking some lava rox to rap over. Do it big (blauw!)

      But on the strength why you don’t give Gunplay & Torch them throwaways? More yeast equals more loaves my nig, think about it.

      Anyway I’ma download ‘Teflon’ b4 I cop it (none). My girl cleans the house to DTR, and b4 you think that’s a diss my mama would clean to classic R&B/Soul. Inspiration begats motivation.

    • James

      Ba haha,

      Not a big 50 fan. Never have been. He’s questionable as well.

      If I want some cat that’s gonna give me some real gutter talk with dope beats, than dope! but if I want fake or made up stories I’m gonna go to a real story teller.

      No hating, just facts.

      50 going at Ricky Ross was not a good move and only helped his career.

  • Will

    Niggas can front on Ross for a ton of reasons
    (bein a CO, he’s from the South, he beefin wit your fav rapper Em/Fif, etc.) But the dude has some of the best production in the game, and his bars are always pretty good… Plus if nothing else, I wanna hear TI, Kanye, and Jay on them beats. Plus, he more often than not hits on the R&B collabs, so the Neyo joint should be a good look

  • Joe

    35 comments in and not ONE mention that he got fukin Raphael Sadiq on his album. Yall nggas aint hip hop lol

    Raphael Sadiq!!?? The legend!

    And yall niggas concerned wit this superfulous bull shyt SMH

    Raphael Sadiq feature>>>>>

    Ross Won.

    I guess people forget their place. An artist should be judged on their music not there life. What are we doing so significant in our lives that qualifies us to pass judgement on someone else. Every real nigga never even tripped on the co shit. And the 1′s who did are the same dumb niggaz who keep messing up making it hard for real hustlers to hustle. If you’re gonna talk shit on an artist then do better. Don’t talk shit show shit. Put your lil fast food money together & drop something. With the way the net is it doesn’t even cost nothing to put something out. And see what kinda response you get lmao.
