Trick Daddy Announces Joint Album With Trina: “I’m Turning The Diamond Princess Back Into The Baddest B!tch.”
Longtime collaborators Trina and Trick Daddy are joining forces to release a joint album titled “Trick and Trina.”
“Yesterday me and Trina signed a deal for a ‘Trick & Trina’ collabo album. So we bringing the city back,” Trick Daddy announced this week to Mass Appeal. “I just want this Trick & Trina record to be classic. I’m going to turn the Diamond Princess back to the Baddest B!tch.”
The friendship between the two dates back to 1998 when they worked together on Trick’s hit song “Nann N!gga.”
Trick feels like other regions of the country are losing the sound fans grew accustomed to. He doesn’t want to see that happen to Miami.
“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 explained. “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.”
Between them, Trina and Trick have 13 solo albums. This will be their first full length effort together.
“[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.”
