Trina and Trick Daddy broke out with the 1998 single “Nann N**ga.” The track peaked at number three on the U.S. Hot Rap Tracks and established both Florida artists as formidable hit makers. They would go on to release a string of popular collaborations together, including “Off the Chain Wit It” and “I Don’t Need You.” During this time, sites like Famous Fix and Who Dated Who claim that the duo were romantically involved.

According to Bossip, Trick Daddy has hinted at the fact that he and Trina hooked up several times over the years. Furthermore, Trick was among the male rappers mentioned on Trina’s 2004 single “I’m Leaving You (Big Ol’ D**k) , where she talks about bedding her peers. The track was inspired by LL Cool J’s classic “Big Ol’ Butt.”

The rumored couple had all but fallen out by the time Trina talked with the Miami New Times in 2005. When told that Trick Daddy was critical of her attempt to crossover with more accessible music, Trina explained: “I don’t know if Trick knows what it means to evolve or not, but I do. He’s street and that’s all he’s going to ever be. I came out being street, I came out being sexy, and now I’ve moved on to still being street but also being more mature and more classy. You have to grow…. You have to grow to be a superstar and not just a rap artist.”

In the post, the rapper calls out black women for being lazy, and warns that if “Spanish and white women learn to fry chicken,” than black women will become “useless. ” Trina told The Breakfast Club that his comments were inappropriate, even if they came from a good place.

“There was a good and bad part to it,” she said. “I feel like what he said wasn’t so bad. It’s a lot of women that need to get their self together,” she said about his statements. “I think his choice of words of saying ‘black women’ and using a different race of women is what made it sound crazy.”

“We’re already in this big racial war,” she added. “That was offensive to women. Me knowing him as a person — I think the choice of words was just Trick talking how Trick does, but meaning it the way everybody perceived it.”

He was an amazing guy.”

Harris was shot and killed on June 23, 1994. He was only 23. According to the Sun Sentinel, his body was found in a 1987 Buick and a suspect was never apprehended. “It was a very, very disturbing moment,” Trina revealed. “I was really young and I just didn’t understand how someone could be so great of a person and someone could do that… He was a street guy but he was a great guy.”

Despite their checkered past and career disagreements, Trina and Trick Daddy have been teasing the release of a joint album titled TNT. The lead single, “Smooth Sailing” was released on July 28, 2017, and included a guest verse from rapper Ali Coyote. Check out the music video above.

During an interview with Billboard, both Trina and Trick Daddy were complimentive of each other’s creative process. “I’d say it’s a little more slowed down,” Trina explained. “We’re used to things going a lot faster, but we’ve been able to make it work. We’re just trying to be in the studio more to rekindle the same kind of chemistry. It’s still the same; it’s not like two people that don’t know each other. He’s in, then I go in. It’s easy to us.”

Trick Daddy was similarly enthusiastic, adding that few female rappers match Trina in skill. “I been toting this for a long time, and the era is different now,” he said. “With Trina, [she’s] naturally pretty, slick mouth and fine as f**k. But now, the girls all think that they’re famous now. Nobody wants to work hard no more. They get a few likes on Instagram and they think they’re superstars. They will never be a Trina.”
