ALLHIPHOP (New York, NY) – Rapper Trick Daddy expressed his feelings on working with fellow rapper Trina in a recent interview with AllHipHop.com.
The Miami, Florida, native, who was originally known as Trick Daddy Dollars dropped his debut album Based on a True Story in 1997.
The Trick Daddy-Trina duo was first introduced on his hit single “Nann N***a,” a popular track which helped solidify the latest male-female rap tag team’s position in the game.
The pair’s relationship has cooled since Trick Daddy left Slip-N-Slide Records, the label where both artists started their careers.
“I need you to call Trina and you need to talk to her,â€ Trick Daddy told AllHipHop.com. â€œI personally think that Trina is a better Trina with Trickâ€¦I would love to work with Trina. I was actually talkingâ€¦the other day about even just doing some songs, giving it to her and say okay this is what we’re gonna do.â€
Slip-N-Slide recently entered into a new deal with EMI label services to market, promote and distribute Trina’s upcoming 5th solo album.
In related news, Trick Daddy also revealed that he is almost “98 percent” finished on a book scheduled to be released at the top of next year via MTV/Pocket Books.
Trick Daddy, born Maurice Young, is putting the finishing touches on his autobiography, titled Magic City: Trials Of A Native Son.
“The book is my lifestyle and what I’ve seen,â€ Trick Daddy said of the upcoming book. â€œIt’s like the autobiography of the whole Miami, before me and while I’m here. It’s the Scarface, The King of New York, The First 48, all the things you’ve ever heard about Miami all in a bubble. All raw, it’s real and respectable to the point it will make you think, so that’s how it was. It’s 98 percent wrapped, pressed, and ready to go, said Trick Daddy.â€
Trick Daddy will next make an appearance on DJ Khaled and E-Class’ compilation album Live From the 305, which is scheduled to drop on October 13th, 2009.
