Trina (born Katrina Leverne Taylor on December 3, 1978 in Miami, Florida) is an African-American female rap artist. Trina first gained notoriety in 1998 with her appearance on Trick Daddy’s www.thug.com album, most notably on the song “Nann”. Her own debut album, Da Baddest Bitch, featured a cameo by Trick Daddy and was released in 2000. Trina, who sold real estate before she began her career in music, spent the next two years honing her raw, raunchy style, following in the vein of fellow female MCs Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown. She paired up with Missy Elliott for the recording of her second effort, 2002’s Diamond Princess.
