First and foremost, I love Trina. Trina is my shit. She’s a bossy, nasty, fellow Sagittarius woman who is obsessed with her own ass: sounds like a role model to me. In high school I was constantly listening to “Look Back At Me,” and for better or worse, the confrontational line “yeah you runnin’ now, you runnin’! I’mma put this pussy on you!” continues to influence me to this day.
Trina has been outrageously raunchy since her debut verse on fellow Miami rapper Trick Daddy’s “Nann Nigga,” which jump-started Trina’s music career. Her 2000 debut album, Da Baddest Bitch, expands on the financially and sexually astute persona she introduced in “Nann Nigga.” The title track is essentially a book of proverbs for bad bitches, with such gems of wisdom as, “You see the bigger the dick, the bigger the bank / The bigger the Benz, the better the chance to get close to his rich friends”–and of course, my personal favorite, “make him eat it while my period on.”
The video is equally satisfying: over three minutes of Trina breaking expensive shit as revenge against her cheating boyfriend, former NFL player Warren Sapp. The message is clear: don’t fuck with Trina.
We’ll be back next week with more Women’s History Month. In the meantime, Spotify and YouTube playlists are below. And if you want to see some footage of Trina at the Amber Rose SlutWalk, check out our vlog from last October:
