Rick Ross aka Ricky Rozay aka Teflon Don aka William Leonard Roberts II celebrated the release of his new album in Miami, Florida with his labelmate, Trina by his side.
You may have heard by now that Rick Ross isn’t having any luck choosing a new nickname after the “Real Rick Ross” threatened legal action. In adopting the “Teflon Don” moniker, Ross has started yet another name battle with the Gotti family, who aren’t pleased at all.
“He should have asked for permission,” Gotti’s grandson Carmine Agnello told the New York Daily News. “A stand-up, respectable guy would come and ask, ‘If I could use the nickname.’ “
“I think he’s a great artist, but you can’t just start calling yourself that to sell records,” Agnello said. “He wants to go for that whole image, but hey, be yourself.” Agnello added, “My grandfather paid his dues for that nickname. That was my grandfather’s life.”
Rick doesn’t appear to be too worried about all the name game drama. He’s taking every day in stride and celebrating his success with a party in just about every city. His Miami party was full of skrippers and bottle poppin.
