Shortly after our fine friends at Def Jam held off on the release of Rick Ross’ sophomore album Trilla until February, his lead single Speedin’ took off (no pun intended) with the assistance of its corresponding video premiere. To increase the popularity of the single, the self-proclaimed Boss and his original collaborator, R. Kelly, have paved the way for an assist from teen sensation Chris Brown. In heavy rotation at both MTV and BET, and even used on a telecast of ESPN’s Monday Night Football, Ross looks as though he will race into ’08 with plenty of momentum behind him.
