Rick Ross ft. Various Artists - Speedin’ (Remix)
The newest (and biggest) trend in hip-hop, used to extend the popularity of a current single, is to cram as many features as humanly possible on the remix (i.e. Khaled’s I’m So Hood and Chamillionaire’s Won’t Let You Down). Continuing that trend is Rick Ross, who on the official remix to his hit single Speedin’, recruits an entire fleet of top connects. In addition to R. Kelly‘s original hook, the song now features three DJ’s (Khaled, Drama, Bigga Rankin’), two New York MCs (Busta Rhymes and Fat Joe), five Sunshine Statesmen (Plies, Triple C’s, Flo Rida, Brisco), and three outside southerners (Birdman, Webbie and Gorilla Zoe). Oh yeah, and one burning hot MC (Lil’ Wayne), who was saved by Ross’ A&Rs to be the last verse on the remix. Trilla is now set to drop on March 11.
