After Rick Ross’ [click to read] Deeper Than Rap moved an approximate 158,000 copies its first week, Slip-N-Slide Records CEO Ted Lucas is speaking out, claiming it’s no surprise. Many disagree, citing that his soaring record sales are surprising due to the economic crunch, the release of freshman Asher Roth’s LP and the feud that was created between he and 50 Cent on top of the exposure of Ross’ past as a correctional officer [click here to read].

Earlier this week, Ross [click here to read] told AllHipHop.com, that he was ready to exist without sharing album points with his longtime Slip-N-Slide Records founder Ted Lucas, “I don’t just want half of the pizza. You ate enough slices – beat it. When I make my business movies – Ted Lucas, CEO of Slip-N-Slide Records – on a personal note, I got nothing but love for him. But on a business note, you can’t eat no more pizza. It’s all my pizza.”

Lucas responded this week, congratulating his biggest artist of the last five years. “When I heard about all that was going down, I knew that musically Ross would rebut by making great music and come out on top,” Lucas told Billboard. “If he wants to get caught up in personal issues, that’s fine, but I never doubted him musically and lyrically.”

He’s constantly in the booth making music. In fact, he’s already working on album number four. Ross is an incredible rapper and not too many people can out-rap him,” added Lucas.
