RICK ROSS DOES IT AGAIN – DEBUTS AT #1 SOUNDSCAN WITH TRILLA, NEW ALBUM FOR SLIP N’ SLIDE/DEF JAM – HIS 2nd CONSECUTIVE #1 ENTRY ON BILLBOARD 200, R&B. & DIGITAL ALBUM CHARTS – FOLLOWS #1 MAJOR LABEL DEBUT OF 2006, PORT OF MIAMI

“The Boss” featuring T-Pain bullets up Urban and Rhythmic radio charts

Slip N’ Slide/Def Jam recording artist Rick Ross joins the exclusive VIP club reserved for MCs whose first two consecutive major label album releases have entered the Soundscan chart at #1, as TRILLA (in stores March 11th) debuts at #1 on first week sales of over 198,000 units. The #1 chart debut- and #1 Digital Album – was powered by Rick’s current single, “The Boss,” featuring T-Pain, coupled with an aggressive street marketing campaign and a release week performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. TRILLA follows the success of Port Of Miami, Rick’s IDJ debut album (released August 2006) which entered at #1 with first week sales of 187,000 units.

“We are thrilled to bring home this hard-fought #1 for Rick Ross,” said Island Def Jam Music Group chairman Antonio “LA” Reid. “The Def Jam and Slip N’ Slide staffs, and especially Ross himself, pushed really hard to get here. I’m proud of the work, but more importantly, I’m proud to have Ross cemented among hip-hop’s elite, where he belongs”

“The Boss” was produced by Jonathan Rotem, L.A.-based hitmaker for Sean Kingston, the Game, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Lopez, Chamillionare, and others. The new single moves up to #14-bullet on both the R&R/BDS and Mediabase Urban charts; and also breaks the Top 40 on both the R&R/BDS and Mediabase Rhythmic charts. The song’s Hot 100 Airplay audience continues to build, now over 28 million with 3,600-plus spins.

Online, Rick’s personal “TrillaWorld” blog is in its second month of operation. His http://www.myspace.com/rickross website shows more than 14.3 million profile views, and over 366,000 friends, with an amazing 22.8 million total plays.

JR Rotem and T-Pain are just two of the guest producers and artists who contributed to TRILLA. Four of the tracks – the album’s opening “Trilla Intro”; the upcoming next single “Maybach Music” featuring Jay-Z; “Luxury Tax” featuring Lil Wayne, Trick Daddy, and Young Jeezy; and “Billionaire” – were produced by the Tampa-based J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, who won this year’s Best R&B Album Grammy for Mary J. Blige’s The Breakthrough (named Billboard’s 2007 R&B/Hip-Hop Album Of the Year).

More: Drumma Boy produced two tracks, “Money Make Me Cum” featuring Ebony Love, and “Here I Am” featuring Nelly and Avery Storm. Def Jam South and Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh is featured on “All I Have In This World (Japanese Denim),” which he produced. Other guest producers include: Bink! (“We Shinin'”); Drumma Boy (“Money Make Me Cum” featuring Ebony Love); Elvis (“This Is The Life” featuring Trey Songz); DJ Toomp (“This Me”); Carlos & Dada (“Reppin’ My City” featuring Triple C’s & Brisco); and DJ Nasty (“I’m Only Human” featuring Rodney). TRILLA’s previous single, “Speedin'” featuring R. Kelly, was produced by the Runners.

Rick Ross rose from ruling the underground rap scene in Miami, to becoming 2006’s buzz-worthiest hip-hop artist with his #1 Pop/#1 R&B/#1 Rap major label debut album Port Of Miami. Its unstoppable single “Hustlin'” became the first mastertone ever certified platinum by the RIAA for sales of 1 million copies before the associated album had even been released. A remix was subsequently issued, featuring Jay-Z and Young Jeezy. The second single from Port Of Miami was “Push It,” whose movie soundtrack excerpts (circa 1990) from Giorgio Moroder’s “Scarface (Push It To The Limit),” evoked the gritty soul of a city that is always on the edge of exploding.

Six-foot-two, 300-pound Rick Ross – who was signed to Miami-based Slip N’ Slide records by CEO Ted Lucas in 2001 – has now come into his own. A “hip-hop heavyweight,” is how the New York Times described him. “The number one ghostwriter in the South,” is how he described himself and his work behind the scenes for all those years. “I’m bridging the gap between the South and the East Coast,” he told Rolling Stone. “The sound is real Dirty South. But I’m spittin’ hard, to where the East Coast appreciates it.” TRILLA underscores the promise of one of today’s premiere hip-hop voices.

FLO RIDA MAKES HISTORY AS “LOW (FEAT. T-PAIN)” HITS #1

Single is first-ever rap debut to top the CHR/TOP 40 Chart; Blockbuster track continues to dominate radio as well as digital sales & ringtone

“STEP UP 2 THE STREETS” SOUNDTRACK IN STORES NOW; DEBUT ALBUM, “MAIL ON SUNDAY,” DROPS MARCH 18TH

“Low (Feat. T-Pain),” the blockbuster hit single from Poe Boy/Atlantic recording artist Flo Rida, has hit #1 on this week’s CHR/Top 40 national airplay chart. The track’s massive mainstream success is indeed momentous – “Low” is officially the first-ever debut single by a rap artist to reach the top spot in chart history, as well as only the fourth rap title to ascend to #1 since 2005.

Flo Rida – whose hugely anticipated debut album, “MAIL ON SUNDAY,” is set to street on March 18th – has instantly catapulted the upper ranks of hip-hop superstardom. Along with its CHR/Top 40 triumph, “Low” continues to light it up at Rhythmic outlets nationwide, maintaining the #1 airplay ranking for 8 uninterrupted weeks and counting. The track’s success marks the longest-reigning debut track from a male artist since Nelly’s classic “(Hot S**t) Country Grammar” held the top spot for 10 weeks in 2000.

The Carol City, FL native will celebrate the amazing accomplishment of “Low” with an eagerly awaited live performance on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, scheduled for tonight, February 6th (check local listings). In addition, Flo Rida will appear on MTV’s TRL on Wednesday, February 13th. Both appearances come in tandem with the single’s inclusion on this week’s Atlantic Records release, “STEP UP 2 THE STREETS – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK,” the musical companion to the upcoming Touchstone Pictures dance film which debuts in theaters nationwide on February 14th.

The “Low” companion video is proving equally unstoppable, coming in this week as the #1 most-played clip on both BET and MTV. “Low” – which also topped the countdowns on BET’s 106 & Park and MTV’s TRL– is now in “Heavy” rotation at BET, “Big 10” rotation at MTV, “Elite 8” rotation at MTV2 (where it is the network’s #2 most-played video), “Summa Cum Laude” at mtvU, “Blazin’” at MTV Jams, a top 5 “Power” rotation smash at MTV Hits, and the #1 ranked clip on MTV.com. As if all that weren’t enough, “Low” is also a top 10 success on Fuse.

Flo Rida is also breaking big online, where he is currently MySpace’s #2-ranked Top Indie Artist, logging a remarkable 8.5 million total streams thus far at his www.myspace.com/officialflo page. At YouTube, the video for “Low” has received more than 6 million views via Flo’s official channel, www.youtube.com/user/officialflo.

Without question one of 2008’s most anticipated albums, “MAIL ON SUNDAY” sees Flo Rida teaming with some of today’s biggest hit makers, including Timbaland, The Runners, J.R. Rotem, and Atlanta’s DJ Montay, who produced “Low.” He’s also recruited a who’s who of A-list collaborators like Atlantic Records labelmate Trey Songz, Lil’ Wayne (who appears on the street savvy “Guns And Roses”), Yung Joc (featured on the raucous party anthem “Furniture”), and Timbaland, who shows up on the album’s second single, “Elevator.”
