Since she debuted on Trick Daddy’s 1998 hit “Nann N—a,” Trina has established herself as hip-hop royalty, dropping five albums including her gold debut, Da Baddest Bitch, in 2000. On Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, the Miami raptress will join MTV News’ Sway Calloway on the red couch to chop it up about her career, upcoming album and clue fans in on her next business move.
She might have gotten her start playing Bonnie to Trick Daddy’s Clyde, but throughout her career, Trina has delivered an array of hit records such as “Pull Over,” “B R Right” with Ludacris and “Single Again.” While many female rappers come and go, Trina has remained a musical mainstay.
In 2010, she dropped her fifth LP, Amazin’, which featured the singles “That’s My Attitude” and the Keri Hilson- and Diddy-assisted “Million Dollar Girl.” Her latest single, “Red Bottoms” (produced by Mr. Collipark), pays homage to footwear designer Christian Louboutin. In the song’s video, the hip-hop beauty gyrates to the beat while wearing assorted pairs of luxury heels.
Her music isn’t the only thing that keeps Trina in the headlines. The femcee is also a fashion icon, often wearing clothing from the world’s top designers, and her love life has long been a topic of celebrity blogs. She has dated Lil Wayne and NBA baller Kenyon Martin. Most recently, she appeared on the VH1 reality show “La La’s Full Court Life,” where Trina was set up on a blind date by her friend La La Vazquez-Anthony.
Catch Trina on “RapFix Live” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET on MTV.com, and be sure to join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #RapFixLive!
