Katrina Taylor grew up in Miami, Florida suffering many
hardships but battled it all, simply by believing that dreams
are true and by putting faith in her dreams, someday everything
will change for her. She never considered a carrer in music,
untill spotted by locally based rapper Trick Daddy, who helped
her on her way to stardom. She then shortened her name to just
"Trina" and appeared on Trick Daddy's hit "Nann N***a".
Daddy's Slip-N-Slide record label noticed her much praised
rapping abilities and rising popularity and continued to team
her up with the fellow Miami native. Trina represented a sexy,
rugged, man-driven look that wasn't new to the music world and
included rivals Foxy Brown and Lil Kim.
But Trina's music style
drove a more controversial issue, due in part to her rebellious
nature, sexual lyrics and profanity filled tracks. Her 2000
debut album, "Da Baddest B***h" was a direct response to the
male-dominated rap industry that was known for disregarding
women in many hit songs. Her debut gained her a gold-certified
single with "69 Ways".
