  Yuuuuuup!!! even with the run-ins with the law in Detroit, beef with Keke Palmer for putting her in a music video she said she did not consent to, and altercations with fans/haters, which we know he would not have done anything to but stepped aside and let his body guards beat him to the white meat, Trey Songz is not letting anything stop his progress. Trey Songz is coming back after going platinum with…
