Rick Ross “Teflon Don”: Deemed Inappropriate by John Gotti Family

Rick Ross has a new moniker, and that’s “Teflon Don.” This name is deemed inappropriate by the John Gotti family. Those who are fans of the famous mob may remember that Gotti was nicknamed “Teflon Don” because of his inability to get convicted of any crimes. They made the charges, but they don’t stick!

The Rapper is releasing an album, and it’s creating quite a stir.

Carmine Agnello says that the MC should have asked for permission to use the name in his album. He told New York Daily News that “A stand-up, respectable guy would come and ask, ‘If I could use the nickname.’ ”

The grandson also implied that Rick Ross’s choice of “Teflon Don” was not original and that his grandfather paid his dues for the nickname.
