Don’t get it twisted, Katrina Laverne Taylor, aka Trina, is the baddest. The Miami native’s rhymes were so hot they caught the attention of Trick Daddy, who promptly featured her on his track “Nann N***a” in 1998. Trina’s verse propelled the song to No. 3 on Billboard’s Rap Songs chart and positioned her to sign a deal with Atlantic Records. She took advantage of her commercial success and released her debut album, Da Baddest B***ch, in 2000 and it was certified gold later that year. Shortly after, Trina began working on her sophomore album, Diamond Princess, with hip hop heavyweights Missy Elliott, Kanye West and Just Blaze. The album did well on the charts, debuting at No. 14 on the Billboard top 200. Trina’s most successful singles are “Pull Over,” “Told Y’all” and “B R Right.” Ready to take further control of her career, Trina started her label, Diva Enterprises, now known as DP Entertainment. With three more albums, an array of features, plenty of awards and even more nominations under her belt, Trina has been a trailblazer for women in hip-hop ever since. Trina recently signed on star in the premiere season of Love & Hip Hop: Miami.
