Rick Ross' "Teflon Don” To Feature Jay-Z, Talks Album
Recording artist, Rick Ross would only reveal Jay-Z as a rapper featured on his anticipated album in an interview session by DJs and journalists.
"With collaborations, I just want to thank the big homey, Jay-Z; the God MC. He is on Teflon Don," Ross said, "And I will just leave it right there. Know that it’s magic.” The Miami rapper was more liberal about the R&B offerings on his fourth solo album.
Def Jam Records hosted the global conference call on April 12 so the self-proclaimed "Boss" could talk about the world premiere of his new single "Super High" featuring Ne-Yo and produced by DJ Clark Kent and the Remedy. Chrisette Michele is also on the album.
Rick Ross addressed his listeners as “his team.” He thanked the DJ’s for supporting his music, and for what is becoming his legacy as an artist. The Miami representative then spoke on the foundation of his new album.
“I wanted to buckle down, musically, and take it to where I know I could take it without any distractions,” said Ross. “For the last six months, I’ve been perfecting my craft to create that lightening that the game needs."
Over the past year, Rick Ross has only grown in stature and likened past beefs to playing old video games.
Similarly, Ross seemed humbled in addressing his growing fanfare.
“I appreciate the love from the fans,” he said. “That’s what generates my creativity. And outside of the fans, I just listen to the music. I let the music tell me the titles. Records like ‘Super High’, I came up with that title from the feeling I get. I want people to feel like they’re in the Penthouse suite, opening up the glass and looking at the world from that approach; they can go get it!”
DJ Clark Kent got on the line and talked about the importance of Rick Ross receiving the track for "Super High".
“This beat was for you (Ross),” Clark said to Ross. “I told him, don’t put any of your friends on it, no artists on it. This is your beat, it was made for you. When the beat was done, I told my manager that this was for Ross. I just want to thank you (Ross) for f**king with it. I know that I haven’t been around for a minute, because I hated the music game. But the one thing that I loved was the music. So I just wanted to thank you for what you did on this record.”
Before Teflon Don is released on June 29, Rick Ross will put out another mixtape.
