Before Hurricane Katrina rocked the south, Katrina Laverne’s landfall swept the nation. 11 years ago, the Miami sexpot traded barbs alongside Trick Daddy on “Nann Nigga” off his sophomore album, www.thug.com. In a true battle of the sexes, Trina emerged as the victor with lewd lines like, “quick to deep throat a dick, and let another bitch straight lick the clit.” A contract with Slip-N-Slide soon followed and so did a successful recording career. With her fifth album, Amazin’ scheduled for a September release, the diamond princess talks to Rap Radar about her flawless verse.
When I did the record I believe I was like 19, 18 [years-old]. I been knowing Trick for years. I’d be in the studio with [him] and just hang out and listen to the music they made. I was really just working and doing real estate, so really [rap] was no where in my mind. He actually called me to come and listen to this verse he had. He thought I would sound good cursing him out on it. I didn’t think it was a great idea. I laughed and then and I actually went and listened to the record, I was like, “Oh my goodness, this is crazy!”
I was really sitting up there thinking like I want the craziest thing that I can think of to say and it was just so far off . I have a potty mouth and I do say stuff that’s sly. That’s just me being who I am. When I did it, I was just like “OK, I’m going to go there, I’m going to go so far.” I’m going to do something I don’t even think I would do. When I listen to the record, I was like I do not believe I said that. I was like “Oh my God!”
[Trick] was cracking up. He thought I was hilarious. He was like, “See, I told you. You just got a filthy mouth and you talk trash and you just crazy.” I was just laughing and he was like, “You just showed me out. ” He’s a fun person and we had a lot of fun doing it. I was like I’m not performing this record. He was like, “Aight, I wont never ask you” He set me up and he did. It’s so funny, because when I perform that record, I don’t even have to say nothing everybody knows the words. It’s just crazy the impact it had on women and people in general. It was a big record for him, the summer in the South and the scene. —As Told To Brian “B.Dot” Miller

Jada takes a page out of Joe Clark’s book after one of his comrades finishes his bottle of Rosé without asking. Where are your morals, man?! You never grab another mans bottle of brew without permission. Some lines you just don’t cross.
Looks like Hov may have some big things poppin’ on his 9/11 release date. No ground zero. But I hear he’s planning a return to MSG with all the proceeds goin’ to charity. Sure to be a hot ticket if it goes down. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. I was at the Fade To Black show and I remember the ground shaking like LJ hit a three-pointer. Ha! Look it up!
Aubrey tells the 1515 Boys, that he plans on re-releasing his mixtape, So Far Gone with a new track called “Fear”.
“I did this song that no one has ever heard before, ever,” he explained. “[It’s] a song called ‘Fear.’ I recorded it when I did So Far Gone
— the first verse and half of the second verse I had gotten through.
But then I just stopped because it was getting eerie. It was getting
where I didn’t know if I could [finish it]. And then the other night I
had a moment and I finished the song. That’s gonna be the last song on
the retail [version of] So Far Gone. And the third verse transitions into Thank Me Later. So the last line of the third verse is gonna be the first line on my album.”
What the bloodclot?! Earlier this morning, Serani made an appearance on Good Day New York and performed dancehall favorite, “No Games.” Lawdimercy!
Last night, Rakim Allah performed at the Highline Ballroom in NYC and previewed a new track, “No Man Above” off The Seventh Seal. After the jump, Officer Ricky raids the venue and rocks “Hustlin.”
