Trilla, Trilla Nights

Four years ago, if you were scoring something from a meeting with Miami’s mixtape superstar Rick Ross, it wasn’t an exclusive interview. But since then, he’s jumped from rollin’ in a rickety, smoke-filled Toyota Tercel to a BMW with oversize wheels – or even a polished-up boat. This rise to fame was a long time in the making for Ross; he has kept his sights set on packed nightclubs, star-studded albums, and platinum ringtones for more than a decade. And now it’s all come to fruition.

His last album, Port of Miami, was more than just another gold platter on Def Jam’s palatial walls; it was a record that redefined the sound of emerging South Florida hip-hop talent. Always hustlin’, Ross is ready to do it again. But this time it’s going to be even bigger. His newest is Trilla, and it hits the shelves Tuesday, March 11, but you don’t have to wait that long to hear it. Tonight Ross -- along with a few friends: Scarface, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Trick Daddy, T-Pain, Lil’ Boosie, Lil’ Webbie, Brisco, Flo Rida, and others -- hits up Mansion, giving you (and a couple thousand of your crew) an early listen during his CD-release party. The first 500 ladies in the door before midnight get to skirt the cover and help start the party with the night’s guest turntablist, DJ Khaled.
