Trina (born Katrina Leverne Taylor on December 3, 1978 in Miami, Florida) is an African-American female rap artist.
Her 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 album, 2002’s Diamond Princess.
In 2005, Trina re-appeared with the single "Don’t Trip", featuring Lil’ Wayne. Her album "Glamourest Life" was released in October, 2005 — and has thus far sold more than 350,000 copies. Trina’s most successful single to date is entitled "Here We Go", and features former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland.
She is also know for using very explicit words in her lyrics.
