Undeterred by a recent ban from entering the country of Bermuda, rapper Rick Ross is moving forward with plans for a new album.
In an interview with the Hartford's 93.7 's On-Air Idiot Show, Ross was at a loss for words as to why the country would ban him on the grounds of not possessing good character and conduct.
I never been there, so I dont know, Ross explained. I had a great time in Dubai, they welcomed me there. And I spent some good money over there and we had a wonderful time. Maybe Bermuda is even more special than that. Well have to look into it.
Ross confirmed that he is already working on his next solo album, Teflon Don, which he expects to surpass his recent success with 2009s Deeper Than Rap.
Im already on top of it, [and] its going to eclipse all my other projects, Ross stated. I recorded a record last week called My Wedding Day. Just to summarize it, its like New Jack City when they were at the wedding but it starts off real beautiful. [But] were just focused on this Triple C project and hitting them hard.
The Triple Cs LP, entitled Custom Cars & Cycles, is being promoted by the Birdman-assisted single Go.
The debut project from Ross group is currently slated for a Fall release.
The streets are excited. Its all about motivating people to get up in the morning and go and get it, Ross detailed. I always stay focused on business .These are my brothers and theyve been riding with me forever. Its only right, the times right. We have a high-powered album were going to drop in October. Just know theres a lot more treats to come.
With the correctional officer and 50 Cent issue dying down, Ross credits his business acumen and music quality for his perseverance.
[Im] being a hustler, Ross argued. It dont matter if you put me in Ireland tomorrow. Youre going to here about me doing something over there, Ill make a movie. Its the kind of dude I am. Whatever room you put me in it dont matter. Thats what its about. I feel like everybody thats watched my career and this empire being built are going to learn to respect it.
At press time, a specified October date has not been announced for the Triple Cs album.
