    Best album of 2010, tremendous work. BMF was a classic, so was MC Hammer. Free Mason was tremendous, Im Not A Star was even better. Ross cemented his status as the best in the biz with this one

    This is a classic rap album, period. Here Rick Ross has an album that paints an overall picture of a guy who sees the street life as almost a political rebellion against an oppressive and the answer is capitalism. He paint himself as the Don and succeeds at it: his lyrics get deep at various points; features a lot of talented artists and he sounds great on almost every song. Despite Rick Ross being very corpulent, this rap album has no fat at all. Absent are the unnecessary skits and interludes and filler songs. This is one of the best edited, leanest albums I've ever heard; it proves that Ross understands that greatness is not only having something to say, but knowing when you've said enough. There are no less than 3 classics on this album and no less than 8 (out of 11 total) really good songs. There are no bad songs on this albums and the texture of the sounds are consistent. After 2 years I can still listen to this album without skipping songs and with the same enjoyment that I got initially. This is Rick Ross's best album. Expand

  1. Rick Ross would like you to know he has sodomized women in Acapulco. Lord knows we all aspire to such Olympian heights, but in that admission lies the crux of the impotence of Rawse's extensive discography: this is all pretty unnecessary.
  2. Ross' ear for lush, expansive beats has become keener and his industry Rolodex deeper, 
allowing him to make every track but the intro feel like an epic, costarring major talents like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Erykah Badu, and Drake.
  3. One of the best summer blockbusters in recent memory, Teflon Don proves how thin the line is between a flight of fancy and something fantastic.
