Trick Daddy and Trina To Reunite With Slip N’ Slide Records

In the late ‘90s, Trick Daddy Dollars discovered Trina, a rising female rapper with a slick mouth and grimy bars. The pair recorded “Nann N***a,” a street banger that would change their lives, and their hometown, forever. Nearly 20 years later, Trick Daddy and Trina are planning to bring back their unforgettable, hardcore Miami sound with a brand new joint project.

“Yesterday me and Trina signed a deal for a ‘Trick & Trina’ collabo album. So we bringing the city back,” Trick Daddy tells Mass Appeal. “I just want this Trick & Trina record to be classic. I’m going to turn the Diamond Princess back to the Baddest Bitch.”

Not only is it the first full-length by the “Shut Up” rapper in years, it’s their first ever long player collaboration. The untitled album is will drop on their original label, Slip N’ Slide Records/Atlantic Records. Trick and the imprint first teamed up with his sophomore album www.thug.com in 1997. (The titular hyperlink still points to the Slip N’ Slide site, if you were wondering.) Since 2006, Trick’s projects have been released independently. 

Trina’s debut, Da Baddest Bitch, featured the title track single that eventually hit the #3 slot on Billboard’s Rap Charts. She went on to drop five albums, but the 2010 LP, Amazin’, was her last on Slip N’ Slide. The Diamond Princess recently released Dynasty 6, a mixtape meant to build hype for an upcoming solo album, slated to drop sometime this year.

“[The collaboration album is] just something the fans always wanted, and now we’re officially going to make it happen,” Slip N’ Slide CEO Ted Lucas says. “Trick put Miami on the map with gangsta music, which was different from all perspectives. When Miami was known for booty shaking, Trick was able to change the culture of what people thought about of Miami music, and Trina was able to put female rappers on the map. We’re excited about it, and looking forward to it.”   

Trick Daddy has been working on several other projects, like his new podcast Famous & Uncensored, with co-host Supa Cindy of 99 JAMZ. The trailer below features guests from the realms of music and sports  like Jim Jones, Lil Scrappy and Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson.

Trick and Trina’s forthcoming album doesn’t have an official release date yet, but according to Trick, it will be out by the end of the year. The Dade county veteran’s goal is to bring Miami back to the rap glory days when it had an authentic identity, something he says is lacking nationwide.

“ATL doesn’t have a sound no more. Miami doesn’t have a sound no more. New York doesn’t have a sound no more,” he says. “With the exception of Remy Ma & Fat Joe, I don’t remember the last time I heard a real New York record. With the exception of the Migos, I don’t remember the last time I heard an Atlanta record. Miami has a couple artists doing things like, Pitbull and Flo-Rida, but we need to take it back to those days, because if it wasn’t for DJ Khaled, I don’t know if our name and face would even still be mentioned or placed in a hall of fame.”
