Speedin'
by Rick Ross (featuring R. Kelly)

  • This features R&B artist R Kelly.
  • Ross on his record label's website: "The concept (of this song) is being young men chasing a dream not ready to stop. To young niggas like me in the street stopping is too close to dying, so I'm speeding, speeding to be the best."
  • Ross told Britishhiphop.com why he named this album "Trilla:" "When I was young, I bought a Michael Jackson album on vinyl. I remember I bought the album and it folded open like a book and I played the record over and over again. The new, fresh sound got to me and that's what I want to do with my music. My first album, Port Of Miami, went platinum and I want to make sure this album is just as fresh. The other reason for calling this album Trilla is because Trill is a word we use in Miami for something that's real and official."
