Over the last few weeks we’ve heard a trickling of leaks and releases from Rick Ross’ highly anticipated album Teflon Don, from the radio flop Super High to the Kanye-dominated Live Fast Die Young, but today we’re confronted with Teflon’s biggest release yet, Maybach Music 3. (And for a man of Ross’ girth, that’s pretty big). Like its Maybach Music predecessors, MM3 brings on some production team J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League to craft a lush beat as luxuriously rolling as its automotive namesake, along with some supreme rap star power in the form of guest verses from T.I. (who kills it), Jadakiss (whose rasp feels a little out of place) and a hook from Erykah Badu (no one saw that coming, no one). Impressively, and fittingly, it’s Ross himself who takes command of the track, closing out MM3 in epic fashion with an impressively lyrical, yet still blunt, verse overset against orchestral production. Anyone can release a song but I have to give it up to the Bawse, he’s released an event. Teflon Don will finally be freed on July 20; hip-hop nation awaits.
