Trina

From Academic Kids

Trina (born Katrina Taylor on December 3 1978 in Miami, Florida) is a African-American female rapper. Trina emerged at the start of the 21st century with a raunchy style and attitude and vulgar lyrics, following in the vein of Lil Kim and Foxy Brown. Trina is signed to Atlantic Records through the Slip-N-Slide imprint, and is a labelmate of Trick Daddy. Her debut album, Da Baddest Bitch, was released in 2000 and is best remembered for its hit single "Pull Over".

"Pull Over", which featured Trick Daddy on the chorus, became a success partially due to its being something of an answer single to several past hip-hop songs such as Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back". The lyrics to "Pull Over" allude to Black Rob's "Whoa!", Juvenile's "Back That Ass Up", and Sisqo's "Thong Song", from which some of "Pull Over"'s lyrics are directly lifted.

"Baddest Bitch", another single from the album, though not a radio or video hit received heavy MTV2 airplay due to its clever spoofing of the Master Card "Priceless" commercials of the day. In the video, Trina systematically destroys a cheating boyfriend's mansion and possessions one by one, and the value of each item is displayed on screen as it is ruined. The video ends with the words, "Getting Revenge On Your Boyfriend...Priceless".

Trina has since released a couple other singles of her own, notably "Told Y'all" from the All About The Benjamins movie soundtrack in 2002 and "B R Right", a nasty duet with Ludacris and the first single off of her 2003 sophomore album. However, mainstream success has mainly only come to Trina thus far in the form of her featured status on other artists' hit singles, for example Missy Elliott's "One Minute Man" and the remix of Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy".
