We gave it an B+

Rick Ross is a competent rapper, but lyrics are by far the least important part of his appeal. ?That’s truer than ever on his fourth and best album, Teflon Don. 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. B+
