Gave Teflon Don a fresh listen before swaps open since it's basically confirmed at this point and I'm feeling a pass on this one.

The album itself hasn't aged very well. I enjoyed maybe 5 tracks at best, and they still felt like 2010. The biggest draw to the release is that it's never been pressed before, so people will buy it for that reason only. It's a "get" from VMP's perspective as they're offering something that isn't available at the moment anywhere else, even if the album isn't that great.

Since it's getting such mixed reception both here and on reddit, my guess is that it sits in swaps for awhile similar to TI - King from last year.
Yeah, I think Teflon Don has aged poorly and there’s only around 4 songs on there that are ‘great’! It’s great that VMP get the rights to release it on vinyl for the first time exclusively, but personally, it’s a pass for me!

Can’t believe this will be my first R&HH ROTM pass ever!!! 😱😳🥺

I mean Waka comes from gangster royalty. His uncle was part of the original Supreme Team, Bimmy. His mom might be the hardest women i've ever seen. Sure, he's soft as room temperature butter but he comes from some real gangsters.
I read about his mom in Gucci Manes book she sounds tough yeah, is there any more reading/info about her I can check out

I mean Gucci hired her to watch his back.. and that's a guy who straight up killed people trying to rob him.

Gucci been surrounded by gangsters too (like Bimmy) and still chose Waka's mom to rep him? Think it speaks volumes for her.

Not to get on a misogynistic tip, but in a male dominated field (like music but especially rap), women have to go extra hard for respect. Reminds me of Sylvia Robinson.. one of the original indie rap label owners who also was apparently gangster af.

Her brother, Bimmy.. was a major part of the Supreme Team. The guys that ran the streets of NY from the 80s up until like the 2000s? They're on the cover of Eric B & Rakim's first album (along with the original 50 Cent) and are probably responsible for like at least half the rappers shot and/or murdered in NYC during that era. 50 Cent? Shot by Supreme Team. E Money Bags? Killed by Supreme Team. Also the reason Ja Rule and Irv Gotti got hit with RICO charges (along with Jacob The Jeweller and a few others)

I knew about half of this information thanks for the rest. Crazy stuff altogether. I'm definitely gonna do some more digging and reading on what you have told me. I love these stories. So interesting
