Gotti Kin Blasts Rick Ross for Using “Teflon Don” Moniker


Yesterday (July 20) Rick Ross released his fourth studio album, Teflon Don. Now, the grandson of the original Teflon Don, John Gotti, is charging the Miami rap boss with “disrespect.”

In an interview with New York’s Daily News Carmine Agnello, the grandson of the former Gambino crime boss, feels that Rozay should have asked the Gotti family for permission to use the moniker. “A standup, respectable guy would come and ask ‘If I could use the nickname,”” he said. “You can’t just start calling yourself that to sell records.”

“Only in America can you go from being a corrections officer to calling yourself Teflon Don,” he added.

John Gotti rose through the ranks of organized crime in the 1970s and 1980s before being sentenced to life in prison in 1992. He died in 2002 from throat cancer.

Ross’ Teflon Don, which hit stores yesterday, features Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Cee-Lo, T.I., Jadakiss, Styles P and more. —Adam Fleischer

    Fuck asking John Gotti’s family for shit! Did he ask those he murdered for permission to kill them. Get your paper Ross! Remember that scene in The Godfather?…” Give it to the blacks, They’re animals anyway” Continue to eat off of his ass. He wasn’t so Teflon anyway, cuz them Aryan nation punks touched that azz up quite a bit in the FED. Fuck him and his spawn! Rest in Piss Gotti!

    • LK

    This mutherfucker’s legacy was MURDER, and DEATH! Hell! Even mobsters don’t respect this failed mob boss. The old “Moustasche Pete’s” despised his azz. He destroyed the game with his flashy suits and craving for the spotlight. Died in prison (FAIL!!!)No respect coming. Black man Co opted his legacy and parlayed it into a nice hunk of change, Shit I LOVE it. Do ya thang Rawse! Win niggah, WIN!!! LOL

    “A standup, respectable guy would come and ask ‘If I could use the nickname,”

    And a far seeing family would have taken steps to secure and trademark the name,likeness and every .com,.net.,.org, etc in sight way before now.

    “Only in America can you go from being a corrections officer to calling yourself Teflon Don,” he added.

    Only in America can you go from being the “King of New York” to a broken,disillusion cancer patient dying in a prison hospital.

    John Gotti rose through the ranks of organized crime in the 1970s and 1980s before being sentenced to life in prison in 1992. He died in 2002 from throat cancer.

    Why pay them anything? Based on the above statement, this guy obviously WASN’T A Teflon Don.

    Maybe if Rawse called the Album ‘Teflonlike, for a little while, until he got caught and went to prison Don”. then he would probably owe them something.

  • Uzay Boyz

    @GOTTI JR Why come to NEW YORK to see how real you are,when I have the luxury of sitting where I am speaking real truth about scum sucking filth like John Gotti and watching LOSERs (see YOU) make total, and I mean TOTAL asses of themselves trying to justify his criminal legacy as something honorable? You are a case study in the absurd, and I relish any and every opportunity to delve into the mind(s) of idiots such as yourself. It makes that Psyh degree so much more rewarding. LOL

    YOU are the new reality TV my friend, providing me with endless hours of hilarity at the the very thought of you. LOL!!! Thank you! Please continue! Cuz at the end of the day… Gotti’s street cred will diminish (Such is time)only to be Co-opted by Hollywood (TI’s) or in this case Rick Ross (LOL at your pain)and money will be made that will never EVER see the hands of you or your folks ole Trash Spawn.

    • 619

      Damn, this fool gonna make 20 comments again just like he did on the Freeway Rick story. You talk about people being slave minded for sticking up for these gangsters who worked towards destroying black folks, while you stick up for the rapper Rick that has slave masters tatted on him.

      • Dinero

        Lmao… He supports anything thas not logical… That and frauds… No one ever said they were right for watt they did but I can’t they are wrong either… The WORLD has and will continue to be built by divide and conquer… They are just a product of a cycle… Rawse is simply a character… Today he is Peter Pan, 2morro he is Robin Hood… And tha last time I checced.. Tha point of a debate is not agree with tha otha party, so everyone has valid points… In other words, Ugay Boyz is tha empitome of idiot…

  • BRIX

    Wasn’t it their own mother that said that they (Gotti’s family) didn’t want to be linked to all the negative aspects of John Gotti’s life?!! Fuck outta here Guidos! It was ok for these spike-haired guinneas to say “Nigga”, but a nigga says he’s a Teflon Don and THAT’S disrespect? Again, I say, Fuck outta here guido!

    John Gotti and the entire Gambino crime family didn’t give a damn about minorities…period. So even if someone actually did ask for permission to use a moniker, does anyone really think they (Gotti’s) wouldn’t want some sort of “tribute”?!

    “Only in America can you go from being a corrections officer to calling yourself Teflon Don,”…and only in America can someone as “untoucahable” as Gotti get SNITCHED on by his right hand man, his Capo, Sammy the Bull (better known as Sammy the Rat)! #Fuckouttahere

    UZAY BOYZ U TALK 2 MUCH…CUT IT SHORT…OR WE WILL STOP POSTING YOUR COMMENTS

    Here’s a few examples, stool sample…

    Joseph Kennedy: Prohibition era Bootlegger, father of 1 US president, 3 US. Senators,Death
    Old Age 81 y/o (at home surrounded by loving family members).

    Meyer Lansky Co-founder of the American Mafia, NOT one day spent in custody, DEATH 81 years old (At home Miami, Florida)

    John Gotti Gambino Crime Boss 1985(?)-1990

    Oh hell! …Wikepedia says it so eloquently
    While in prison, Gotti offered $100,000 to the Aryan Brotherhood to kill Walter Johnson, a mentally unstable black inmate who had assaulted him. The Aryan Brotherhood accepted Gotti’s offer. The prison guards surmised that Johnson was in danger, and moved him to a different cell block, ultimately transferring him to another prison where Johnson was eventually paroled.[7][8] Gotti, during a prison visit with his family was recorded saying: “Being a nigger is an embarrassment.”

    Fuck YOU and John Gotti!

  • Lloyd Sprayweather

    I dont guess it’s any worse than having Louis Vutton call you out for wearing fake shades on the cover of XXL.

    Or The Real Rick Ross call you out for straight snatchin his whole story.

    Or you talking all that pimp shit but your woman’s taking your kids over to Money May’s for the fight, and your other bitch is making flicks for Fifty Cent.

    Or, hey, how could I forget about pictures of you being a C.O. when you were supposed to be making a mill a year selling weight?

  • Sha

    Are you serious??????

    Disrespectful??????

    These motherfuckers fucked up lives, killed people, and general ran crazy with crime.

    Are you motherfuckers serious????

    Blame 50 and The “Real” Ricky Ross for starting this kind of dumb shit.

    I guess this fucking family stepped to the makers of the “GodFather” when that came out too.

    Get a life!

      lol at “you couldn’t make this shit up. Well Ross can…”

      his whole career is unintentional comedy at its finest.

    My bad…Lloyd Sprayweather said that shit.

  • LEEK

    I get the whole Mafioso thing that Ross is doin, loved it when B.I.G., Nas, Wu did it. But with Ross it’s just so blatant. Between the album title & shouting out dead Italians on Mafia Music 2 is weird as fuck considering that blacks where a tool for them to make more money.

    Yeah Wu did call themselves Wu-Gambinos as an alias, but they never had an LP after so dude that died 25 years before they came out.

  • GOD

    I like how people keep bringing up the hatred that Italians had for Blacks, and how Italians made money off of Blacks by selling them drugs…yet Blacks have been doing that to our very own for years and it’s still going on.

    Not to get all Afrocentric, I’m just sayin…

  • Gotta Wonder

    Hmmmmmm….Gotti is Full of Shit, Its just a title. You don’t Own Words Fool. You don’t own Shit. Ass wipe, Fuck coming to NY. You don’t speak for the entire State of NY. Your Grandfather was a Racist, Cold blooded Killer. Wanted more light than a fucking lighting bug, than Keeping it Hush, and stay King on the low. Loser died in a box. Funny thing is Blacks are racist too, Racist to other minorities. Damn Shame, Then have the nerve in their ignorant Mind to say other people are racist. When Blacks all day everyday calling each other Nigga,or Selling dope to each other, or playing Crabs in a bucket. Every Race is racist and Ignorant to some point. So Blacks you sold to your own and, Italians did and where also, coc heads, You have the geno factors in every race, its called Human Nature. So Mr.Roberts make your money, and say fuck da world, Because they don’t care about you if your making money, and they damn sure don’t care about you when your broke.

    I think this is so stupid… Me personally,I think by Rick Ross using his grandfather’s name is showing a high of respect… I feel like ANY person(artist)that uses another persons name in a respectful way is a high form of respect to that person. But of course you have those people that are just bored and have NOTHING else better to do or just looking for a way to get more money into there pockets/bank accounts… I LOVE Rick Ross and I will always support him!!!! By the way and those that keep bringing up that he was a correctional officer, SO THE FUCK WHAT at least he had a good legal job… Beside’s what does that have to do with what he’s doing now… STOP HATING ON RICK!!!

    The gangsters were stupid for engaging in a life of crime and the rappers are equally stupid for wanting to be like them. The shit is all WWE to me.
