Aspiring rapper Carmine Angello, the grandson of mob boss John Gotti, has some issues with Rick Ross’ new album title, Teflon Don.
The infamous mob boss was given the nickname “The Teflon Don” by the media because of all the attempts to convict him ended up in hung juries or acquittals.
From the New York Daily News:
“My grandfather paid his dues for that nickname. That was my grandfather’s life,” Agnello said.
“He should have asked for permission. A standup, respectable guy would come and ask ‘If I could use the nickname,'” Agnello, who is trying to launch a music career under the name Carmine Gotti, said of Ross. “I think he’s a great artist, but you can’t just start calling yourself that to sell records …He wants to go for that whole image, but hey, be yourself.”
“Only in America can you go from being a corrections officer to calling yourself Teflon Don,” Agnello said, noting Ross’ former career.
