The family of the Real “Teflon Don” John Gotti, has expressed outrage at the former corrections officer for using the former mob boss’ name for profit or fame.
This is not the first or the last time this fraud has helped himself to someone else’s identity. A judge recently dismissed a lawsuit against Ross by former crack dealer Ricky “Freeway” Ross, who accused the rapper of hijacking his name and image.
Rick Ross is a man with very low self-esteem who lives in a fantasy world where he assumes the identities of real gangsters who are larger than he will ever be.
Ross has lied about his real background for years. He lied about working as a corrections officer despite the fact that the state produced his official time cards proving he punched a clock in an officer’s uniform. Ross lies about his past mainly because his past is boring and doesn’t fit in with his grandiose fantasies of the drug lord he wishes he really was.
According to the NY Daily News, the family of the former mob boss John Gotti is upset that Ross, real name William Leonard Roberts II, decided to name his album Teflon Don. “Teflon Don” was mob boss John Gotti’s nickname because the Feds couldn’t make any of their drug and organized crime charges stick.
The Miami rapper should have gotten the okay from his family first, Carmine Agnello, 24, told the Daily News Tuesday.
“My grandfather paid his dues for that nickname. That was my grandfather’s life,” Agnello said.
