Yesterday Wednesday (November 9), “The Baddest Chick” aka Trina stopped by MTV’s RapFix and announced that she was no longer signed to Slip-N-Slide Records. Trina also revealed that she was working with Miami’s rapper Rick Ross on her upcoming sixth album. Today, rumors hit the Interweb, saying that Trina is signing with Ross’ MMG. During her interview with RapFix, Trina didn’t deny or confirmed that she’s signing with Ross, when Sway asked her. Below are some excerpts:
On leaving Slip-N-Slide Records.
“I’m no longer considered to be affiliated with Slip-n-Slide,” Trina said. “Slip-n-Slide is like my family. I grew up with those guys, and it’s been a long journey. I love them dearly, but it’s time, in my career, for me to move forward, and I’m excited about taking the next step and seeing what’s there for me.”
“It’s scary after you’ve been with somebody for all of your career to step out on your own,” she said. “You’re wondering which way to turn, but I’m ready and willing to do what I need to do for myself.
“I’m not the kid on Slip-n-Slide’s roster anymore,” she continued. “I’ve spent my whole career with Slip-n-Slide — five albums — and I’m really excited about going forward without them, but I still look at them as family, no matter what.”
On working with Rick Ross on her upcoming sixth album.
“Ross has been a mentor in my career from the start. Even before the world got a chance to see him, he was a part of my team,” she said. “For him to come out and be very successful and do his thing and for me to still have him in my life, it’s a blessing. For me to work with him on my sixth album and have him there to guide it, understand what I want and see my vision, that means everything to me.”
Should Trina sign with Rick Ross’ MMG?
