In the hip-hop industry, female MCs tend to have a shorter career span and are widely overshadowed by their male counterparts, and with the Grammy Awards replacing their Best Female Rap Solo Performance category with a unisex one, the path to success for a female lyricist is a very steep mountain to climb…
But despite all the odds stacked against her, Trina has successfully risen to the challenge, carving a glittering career that spans over 13 years and has no signs of slowing down. The 32-year-old Miami native recently caught up with The Wrap Up’s Vanessa Laker to talk new music, the transition of rap, longevity in hip-hop, the decline of female rappers, Nicki Minaj and much more.
The Wrap Up:Hi Trina! You’ve just released a new mixtape, ‘Diamonds Are Forever’. Tell us a bit about that project…
Trina: Hiya! Well, ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ is a very honest record. It’s a work of art. It was so much fun to make. It was all original music, so it actually has more of an album feel to it. I worked with a lot of great artists, such as Rick Ross, Mya and T-Pain. It’s definitely something for the streets. It’s emotional; it’s sexy and just raw. It’s a very real record. It was such a great CD to make – one of my greatest, actually. I don’t even like to say it’s a mixtape, because it’s so close to an album.
