Hip-Hop: Year in Review 2010
Published Nov 27, 20107. Rick Ross Teflon Don (Def Jam)
Just like the kings of the underworld that Rick Ross fashions himself after ― who invest their money in an all-star legal team to ensure they always come out on top ― the boss wisely invests his cash into a production team which includes J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Lex Lugar, No ID and Kanye West, whose backing sound accentuates and elevates Ross's cadence. While Ross has aligned himself with many industry heavyweights who make guest appearances on Teflon Don, the album is highlighted by a big improvement in the big boss's lyrical composition, which has come a long way in a short time.
