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.

    His grandfather paid his dues for that nickname? Mofo please….all these “real” criminals and their kin need to #shatup and #satdown.

  • pointhimout

    oh, that’s what this is all about. ok. i saw this trending on twitter yesterday but didn’t click on it to even see what it was about.

    last week it was roman zolanski (something like that) from nikki minaj, and now he’s teflon don, which is who gotti was nicknamed or known as? **sigh**

    This sucker wants to use the name for himself. :coffee:

  • ohpretty1

    They need to sit down and shut up. Ross isn’t doing anything different with your grandfather’s NICKNAME than you all were doing with that piss poor, short-lived ‘reality’ show : trying to make a buck.

    Rick Ross better watch out…seems like he is upsetting the wrong kind of people :coffee:

    Who cares? It’s all a part of entertainment. Will the REAL artists in the music game PLEASE STAND UP? Let me correct that, RAP GAME, because there is some real talent on the R&B side that represent..IE Monica, Keysha Cole, Fantasia.

    Ummm….again. That is why Milli Vanilli lied. That is why Vanilla Ice lied. That is why Shelly B. Sally…or whatever her dayum name was…lied on “Idlewild”…

    Only thing is Rawss is able to lie and still sell records. Errybody else career is over after the lie or dies (dude from Milli Vanilli…and Paula Patton at the end of the movie)…

    :coffee:

  • JDWhitedst

    Wow…really? So, you want to defend you murdering, drug dealing, grand father that didn’t do anything for this world but make it worse. HE WAS A CRIMINAL…and as far as I see it…no one needs to pay homage to any gangsta or drug dealer. Rick Ross, Rozay, whatever is just a rapper that is rapping about what people want to hear…lets not get his previous life and what he raps about confused. Drake raps and was on a childrens show. I think having “street credibility” went away a long time ago.

    While I could care less about the criminal part I do think these mobsters or their families should be getting a cut of these rappers money when they use the name of a famous criminal. Maybe then, they’d be more creative and stop trying to assume someone’s identity. I don’t feel like reading the story, but did he mention Irv and his brother using the family name as well?

  • AWESOME ARSENAL

    @Sandra
    You do know when Gotti got locked up he was gettin his azz beat and had to hire the Aryans to protect him, don’t you?

  • kwall

    Well @13 I think it has even been revealed that two of the folks you named have told a few lies their ownself.

    Keyshia was not as down on her luck as her people tried to make her seem when she first hit the scene. That came out in an episode of the show I think… “Bish…you said you were homeless…you won’t never homeless!!”

    And Fantasia was not as illiterate as her folks tried to spin her either. She admitted she could read…she just was not as good a reader as most. “Miss Celie spell book…”

    So one mo ‘gin… “men lie women lie”.

  • CivilEngineer

    Hey Daisy!!

    And they lower the first week price to hopefully boost first week sales. I’ve seen a 7.99 cd first week, sell at 9.99-13.99 after.

    Exactly. The mob didn’t appreciate his flashy behind bringing so much shine on them, therefore no protection on the inside. He couldn’t stand making his money underground. He wanted to be seen. He was a gangster who wanted to be a celeb. Rick Ross is a celeb who wants to be a ganster (I know it’s an image), so they are in the same boat.

    ……in other bs news…..
    Mathew Patton the 3rd and Charles Downey have just filed a multibillion dollar suit against the recording industry citing the use of their initials as the common name of several products used to distribute music. Downey and Patton argue that the “catchiness” of their intials is the main reason these technologies were adapted into the mainstream and became so wildly popular. More details to come as this situation seems to be headed to a quick resolution.

  • pinksghetti

    The Gotti grandsons are cute (at least the last time I saw them a couple of years ago) but this is nuts. Gotti was a criminal and Rick Ross (the fake one) had a real job and they make him out to be the bad guy. I miss back in the day when rappers just had a nick name or MC “such and such”. I’ll even settle for going back to be Lil’ “whoever” over this mess of naming yourselves after criminals.

    Ladies and gents last time i check people buy music and go to the movies for entertainment. Not for how real the artist or actor is. Which in rick ross case he is both. Lets just say he auditioning for the next drug lord role at the box office. No doubt in my mind he would get the part.

    I’m gonna blog about this as soon as I get home to a computer cause there’s sooo much I want to say but I wish more people would come forward and call this fake double E always sweating dude out. Stop taking other peoples lives, especially people who are well known and have gone down in the history books so that their names/criminal records/lives are common knowledge to anyone willing to do their research, and glorifying it like its your own. I’m not dumb I know these rappers (well most) aren’t living the lives they rap about but many are pulling from past experience or things they’ve seen, Fatty is pulling from the history books and wikipedia and has become successful off the ignorance of the youth. And he’s glorifying crime and violence to a community, a world that doesn’t need anymore crime or violence. There is more to rap about, get creative, but most importantly be yourself for goodness sake. And finally John Gotti was a racist, a publically known racist who HATED blacks. Why on earth would you choose, as a black man, to emulate anything from him? I swear ignorance is bliss for some people
