Southern rapper Trick Daddy has opened up about wanting to get back together with female rapper Trina for some collaborations and explained their impact as a duo.
Trick also revealed how he has been trying to plan ways for them to get on tracks together.
"I need you to call Trina and you need to talk to her," he said in an interview. "I personally think that Trina is a better Trina with Trick. Those sexy-jazzy chicks, they need that thug, they need that thug n*gga for guidance and protection. That's what Trina and Trick bring you. They bring you the real Bonnie and Clyde with no strings attached and nothing sugar coated. For me, I would love to work with Trina. I was actually talking to brother the other day about even just doing some songs, giving it to her and say okay this is what we're gonna do, you just do your part. I admit that I'm a prejudice person, I love kids, I hate beggars, I can't stand backstabbers, and I despise a snitch. That makes me prejudice if you think about it in a sense, another thing I'm prejudice about is my city. I'm gonna rep my city to the fullest! Trina is a part of that and under no circumstances would I ever want to see that do bad, or fail, under no pretense have I ever thought like that. I've never been considered as a chief, but I think I could hold down the tribe and until then I'll be a hell of a good Indian. So I've never been trying to take over Miami." (All Hip Hop)
Trick and Trina were known for arriving in hip-hop through their joint records around 2001.
"Nann N*gga" and "Shut Up" became his best-known early successes, each featuring a feisty young rapper named Trina, who would go on to her own success in subsequent years. When Trick Daddy finally did break into the mainstream in 2001 with the appropriately titled "I'm a Thug," it came as somewhat of a surprise. No one questioned his talent, but his image hardly matched that of other mainstream rappers. (All Music)
Trina recently shared her opinion on female emcees and explained why Nicki Minaj is a popular rap newcomer.
"She doesn't have an album out or sold any records, but it's more so about the passion and the response she gets from the listeners," Trina said in an interview. "To see her pave her way from nothing to come up to be a topic or a name. You give that respect to the person coming up making a name for themselves. That's just real talk. I don't pull any punches. People say I give too much credit to people but it's not about that. It's about being real. And being real is giving props when it's due. You can't be hating or mad when you see people doing their thing." (XXL Mag)
