Teflon Don is a fittingly titled victory lap for Rick Ross. After being outed in 2008 as a former correctional officer—a revelation that would have almost instantly killed the credibility and careers of most mid-level gangsta rappers—the stout Florida rapper silenced critics with his great 2009 record, Deeper Than Rap; if anything, the scandal only helped publicize the album. His new Teflon Don is even better than Deeper Than Rap, a rich, immensely soulful album recorded with assists from R&B singers including John Legend, Cee Lo, Erykah Badu, Ne-Yo, Chrisette Michele and Raphael Saadiq.
