    This shit is the jam of the summer. This guy's got rich suburban white girls singin bout Big Meech. rofl.gif

    The guy's an obvious fraud and his lyrics are laughably shallow, but he picks great beats, gets killer verses from Tip, Kiss, Hov, and The Ghost, and makes the most of his raspy voice and slightly above-average flow. I don't understand the logic of taking points away for dope guest spots. It'd be a MUCH worse album without them.

    And really, have you compared Ross's lyrics to Jeezy or Gucci? None of these Southern cocaine rappers is trying to spit complex rhymes. A "deep" song to them is one where they admit they can be killed by bullets lol.

    Teflon Don >>>>>>> The Recession, any of Gucci's mainstream album releases

    8/10, you cats screamin "album of the year" are wylin

    Exactly

    The guest spots are an indictment of ross not the album

    The reviewer is a joke

    I actually don't like MC Hammer lol, I just said he's at his best on songs like those. I even said it was lacking. The first quote was from Free Mason, though. I didn't like Ross' verses on that. There isn't much rap currently on the mainstream circuit as it is, so it isn't that hard for Ross not to get lost in the crowd.

    No it isn't.

    Its from the BMF / MC Hammer combo (I cant remember which becuase I aint listening to it now).

    I put this up there with the other 100k + releases of How I got Over and Distant Relatives in terms of music, and should be a fair canidate for AOTY.

    Friends, comrades, Romans....and niggas, can we chill with the beef shit in here?


    With that said, I haven't heard the album but much of what Cham said is a big reason why I cannot BEAR to listen to his music long enough to give it a chance. So I'll knowingly admit my bias against him AND the majority of people who appeared on that album. With that said, his verse in the Window Seat remix is a step in the right direction, and because of that, maybe in the future I'll be less opposed to listening to a song or two of his.


    I'd also like to say that anybody who puts this album ahead of How I Got Over will be permanently banned from the IC at my request. Seriously tho, I'm Millz'in niggas in this muhfucka, as if ya'll are dissin' Steve Nash. Haha. I'm just fuckin' with ya'll. I think HIGO's only flaw is that it never got the promotion it deserves tho. Just 'cause an album or a song get's 100x more exposure and is more catchier than another album/song, it doesn't mean it's better. Musically you can't possibly say any other release has topped HIGO yet.

    OK, I know I'm late but I need to say some things:

    Great artists are supposed to improve their work. Teflon Don was not an improvement overDeeper Than Rap. This album was SEVERELY overhyped, and outside of "Free Mason" and "Maybach Music III", this album ain't worth much. The fact that BMF and MC Hammer are the exact same beat goes to Ross's "talent".

    That being said, no way in Hell that Pink Friday is better than this.

    I can respect your opinion and review but I Luke the album. Not the best of the year but I can spin it for a few.

    I'm gonna fully co-sign the intent of this review.

    Its a big difference between being critically good and entertaining.

    Teflon Don was one of the most entertaining albums last year.

    It wasnt very good tho. And for the lofty expectations formed by some of the comparisons that Ross fans make, you would expect to hear more lyrical wizardry. Teflon Don is a great compilation of songs tho. So I give it 3/5 on the classic scale and 5/5 on the entertainment value scale.

    IMO Teflon Don was about a 3/5 or 3.5. Too much filler and forgettable tracks.

    The song with Puffy was the worst

    Teflon Don was a solid album, By today's music standards niggas need to embrace this kind of effort before we are bombarded by Lil B' s, Waka Flocka's and Gucci Mane's.
