Rick Ross Pushes New Disc To 2008
According to Billboard, the artist's sophomore effort Trilla is now set to hit shelves on February 19, pushed back from its original release date of December 18. The disc is the follow-up to his 2006 debut, Port of Miami, via Slip-N-Slide/Def Jam.
"The album is like [Michael Jackson's] Thriller but you know we had to put that trill on it," Ross recently said when explaining the title of the disc. "You know the definition of trill means realer than the fake."
Trilla's first single, "Speedin'" featuring R. Kelly, hasn't made it past 76 on the charts, so the label is reportedly giving Ricky some more time to work on the album.
Jay-Z guests on the song "Maybach Music," while Lil' Wayne and Trick Daddy come though on "Luxury Taxing." The album also features Akon, T-Pain and Floetry's Marsha Ambrosius. On the production side of things, The Runners, DJ Toomp and Cool and Dre all came through to bless the disc.
Rick's gangster-themed documentary, M.I. Yayo, was supposed to drop alongside Trilla. No word on whether the DVD will be pushed back as well.
