Miami native Katrina Taylor better known as Trina debuted in 1998 on Slip-N-Slide label mate Trick Daddy's "Nann," and quickly became a household name in Hip-Hop. Trina was thrust in the national spotlight as there were no other southern based female rappers with national acclaim at that time as Trina was referred to as "Queen of the South". Her first two albums, Platinum selling debut album "Da Baddest B***h" (2000) and Gold album "Diamond Princess" (2002) focused on the raw style that made her famous, followed by another Gold album entitled "Glamorest Life" in 2005. Trina elevated her style with her most recent release, "Still Da Baddest" which had her highest ranked career debut as it came in at #1 on the Billboard Rap and R&B charts and #6 on The Billboard 200. Trina is currently working on her fifth solo album which is due in stores February of 2009.
