TV One’s Award-Winning Show ‘UNCENSORED’ is closing out the season with the baddest chick this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/9C!
It’s only right that the last episode features an icon like Trina! Growing up in the Liberty City area of Miami, Florida, she banked on becoming a real estate agent until fellow Miami icon Trick Daddy heard her unique rapping skills. From there Trina knew she was destined to be a superstar.
“Trick says “Are you ready to see Trina?!” and the girls are going crazy, crazy! This is the first time I actually performed the song. And from that moment on I didn’t do real estate anymore, I did the deal and said I was going to be a superstar.”
After “Nann N****” saw significant success, the single entered the top three of Billboard Hot Rap Singles, which led to Trick taking a strong interest in Trina’s raw talent. She was then signed to Slip-N-Slide Records and began working on her singing career, releasing her debut album “Da Baddest *****” on March 7, 2000.
Although most of the world knows her as Trina the rapper, she admitted that it’s still important for people to know her actual personality especially when it comes to love.
While Trina had many highs she also experienced a lot of lows and her mother’s passing was one of the most recent trials she’s had to endure.
The rapper’s mother, Vernessa “Nessa” Taylor, was heralded as “the rock” that molded Trina and also a pillar in her community in advocating for self-love, confidence, and perseverance. She sadly departed this world back in 2019 due to cancer complications and Trina gives insight into how she’s overcoming that battle of grief.
Trina will always be the “BADDEST” to ever touch the mic, and we can’t wait for Sunday’s episode to drop.
