Trina Says She’s “Beginning A New Career Musically”
The Miami rapper says that running her Rockstarr Music Group allows her to be “at the forefront.”
Earlier this week, Trina signed with Penalty Entertainment, home to eMC and others. The Miami rapper is scheduled to release her sixth album later this year, a project featuring the single “The Real One” with Rico Love and released in conjunction with her own Rockstarr Music Group.
“I’m excited about this new path in my career and brand,” Trina says in an exclusive statement to HipHopDX. “It is as though I am beginning a new career musically because I am at the forefront of my own record label imprint–Rockstarr Music Group. I want to thank the Penalty Entertainment, Sony Red Family for believing in my brand, as well as my fans who have grown with me throughout my career and remained supportive.”
Trina broke through nationally through her appearance on Trick Daddy’s hit 1998 single “Nann N**ga.” She launched her solo career with the release of her 2000 album, Da Baddest B***h, which was certified gold. Her 2005 single “Here We Go” featuring Kelly Roland was also certified gold.
Trina’s track record made her an appealing part of the reemergence of Penalty Entertainment, which has released projects from Capone-N-Noreaga, Noreaga and eMC, among others.
“I’m honored to have Trina on Penalty Entertainment for her latest album,” Penalty Entertainment President and CEO Neil Levine says in an exclusive statement to HipHopDX. “She sounds amazing so expect big surprises as she continues to solidify her status as the baddest female in the game.”
