15 greatest Southern hip-hop albums of all time


14. Rick Ross Teflon Don

Rick Ross was at his best with the release of Teflon Don in 2010. He maintained his street persona, but he explored different musical sounds by enlisting surprise guest stars.  “Tears of Joy” featured a speech by Black Panther member Bobby Seale and a soulful hook by Cee Lo Green; “Maybach Music III” came with an intoxicating hook by Erykah Badu; Kanye West produced the guilty pleasure “Live Fast, Die Young”; and Raphael Saadiq provided the hook on what remains Rick Ross’ most honest song, “All the Money in the World.” The album also featured the street anthems “B.M.F.” and “M.C. Hammer.”
