Gotti's Grandson Calls Out Rick Ross


*le sigh* Rick Ross has irked the family of legendary gangster John Gotti by his "Teflon Don" album, which was released yesterday. According to an interview with the New York Daily News, Gotti's grandson Carmine explains his beef with Ross's album name:
My grandfather paid his dues for that nickname. That was my grandfather’s life. He should have asked for permission. A standup, respectable guy would come and ask ‘Could I use the nickname?' 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.

Carmine then added that, only in America can you go from being a corrections officer to calling yourself Teflon Don. For the record, John Gotti was dubbed the “Teflon Don” after winning acquittal after acquittal in the 1980s. He was finally convicted of murder and racketeering in 1992. Oh, and did I mention that Carmine is trying to launch a hip-hop career? SMH.
What are your thoughts, did he have a right to go in?
