-- While Rick Ross' album Teflon Don has definitely built up an insane amount of buzz over the past few months, the album was finally released this past Tuesday amidst a couple local festivities to help bring in Ross' fourth major label effort. Even though the music industry in general has seen a steady decline in sales, Rick Ross has consistently been able to at least maintain his performance on the Billboard charts.
Early reports show that Ross will battle it out with Eminem for the top position on the charts. According to sorta accurate sales guesser Hits Daily Double, Teflon Don is expected to sell between 170,000 and 180,000 copies, although we won't know for sure until about this upcoming Wednesday. But it's good to see the Boss win, because he's been going through set-back after set-back lately. [Hits Daily Double]
