Originally set for June 29, 'Teflon Don' is now delayed until later this year because Rick Ross doesn't want to clash with fellow rapper P. Diddy.
Hip-hop star Rick Ross has pushed back the release of his upcoming album to avoid clashing with his pal P. Diddy. The rapper was set to release his new record, "Teflon Don", on June 29, the same day Combs is due to release "Last Train to Paris". But Ross has now decided to delay the disc until later this year, and he's pleased he won't be entering a chart battle with Combs.
He says, "It was a real good move. I felt like the June 29th was a little too premature, that was the date my homie Diddy was coming out on anyway. And you know that's the homie, so I felt like coming in the early July, middle July was best for me from day one."
"But it's always good anyway man, as long as you're setting up all your pieces in the right place. You're setting your radio up, you're setting your marketing up, the rest of that s**t come in place when you got hits."
