The visually stunning video sets the stage for a breakthrough year for Projexx, as he prepares to release more exciting music in the near future.
"I wanted to produce something different and unusual, so I was in the studio experimenting with Nate and Tyree when they came up with the beat. I was freestyling until I found the first line 'Bimma inna top speed.' I hit up Marksman on IG and told him he’d be dope on the song, so I flew to Jamaica to shoot the video with him, and that’s when Giggs sent his verse and the rest is history," Projexx shares about the track.
"Top Speed" follows Projexx's monumental success in 2021 and 2022, where he released his last project, 'Queen Hill'. The EP garnered significant attention with standout tracks such as "Sidepiece," showcasing Projexx's ability to blend genres seamlessly. His previous hit, "Bigga League," a boundary-smashing collaboration with Bakersteez, documented his rise to prominence as the music video captured his takeover of Jamaica's National Stadium.
