When hip-hop fans hear the name Rick Ross they perceive the Miami MC as a newcomer (of sorts) to the game. Although Ross may have only just released his second major label album this past winter, Trilla doesn’t represent the sophomore stage of Ross’s career. In August of ‘06, when he debuted at #1 with the release of Port of Miami, The Boss had been in the rap game almost a decade. Now a large-and-in-charge figure in the industry, Ross continues his trek toward supremacy with the third single off his already gold-certified LP. On Here I Am, Ross is joined by Lou representative Nelly and New York singer Avery Storm, for a “baby, don’t look any further” ladies jam. Being that Ross has already exceeded expectations for Trilla, Here I Am couldn’t be a more appropriate choice.
