International Women’s Day is the perfect time to revisit Trina, the fiercely independent Miami rapper who shattered the rap game’s glass ceiling with 5-inch stilettos. Her debut appearance on the 1998 Trick Daddy single “Nann N*igga” was the verse heard around the world – it was raunchy, it was unapologetic, and to many, it bested superstar Trick Daddy on his own song, setting the stage for Trina to dominate airwaves, stages, and public fascination throughout the 2000s. Like her peers, Lil Kim and Foxy Brown, Trina’s presence in rap signaled that a new type of rapper was here to stay – a sex-positive, unabashed female boss, who could write rhymes to make men blush and women cheer. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.

For your International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month coverage, please refer to Trina’s latest interview with Luc Belaire CEO Brett Berish above. In just 30 minutes, Trina provides important, relevant commentary about: 
  • The importance of role models – her mother operated her own business, and Trina too wanted to achieve success independently of a man.
  • Advice to other women to stay out of the clubs and party scene early on in their careers. 
  • The unfortunate truth that women have to rap better than male contemporaries to be considered legitimate.
  • The need for women in music to uplift and support each other. There is room for everybody, but no room for peer sabotage.

This March, Trina will be releasing her first album in seven years, entitled The One. It’s the first project from her own record label, Rockstarr Music Group, and features 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Price, K. Michelle, Plies, Boosie, and DJ Khaled amongst more surprises for Trina’s fans. 
A new chapter as a label boss is sure to take Trina’s legendary status to the next level. She’s signed four hot female artists to her Rockstarr Music Group roster, and may or may not extend an invite to the men!
