After mild reception on the first single, Rick Ross' label decides to re-work the album before putting it in the market.
After several push backs, Rick Ross' sophomore effort, 'Trilla', is announced to come on February 19 through Slip-N-Slide Records. It was reasoned as the label's decision to upgrade the album after first single 'Speedin'' only peaked at #76 on Billboard's Hot R'n'B chart.
Details that have erupted reveal a contribution from Jay-Z on the song 'Maybauch Music', Lil Wayne and Trick Daddy on 'Luxury Taxing' and Akon, T-Pain and Marsha Ambrosius on the already leaked title track, 'Trilla'.
The title of the album is a reference to Michael Jackson's best-selling album 'Thriller'. "It was one of the first vinyl albums I bought, along with Run DMC's 'Walk This Way'," Ross said previously. "I just played it over and over for a year long. I just wanted to make my sophomore album that intense, just wanted to electrify everyone."
