Maurice Young emerged on the scene from Miami’s Liberty City
You may remember when rapper and producer, Maurice Young emerged on the scene from Miami’s Liberty City in 1997 as Trick Daddy Dollars’ with his debut album “Based on a True Story” in 1997 and then again with his club-oriented track “Nann Nigga“, featuring Trina. This track became a national hit, peaking at the third spot of the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart. Atlantic Records signed Trick Daddy to the label in 2000 and released “Book of Thugs: Chapter AK Verse 47” that same year. “Shut Up“, which Jason Birchmeier of Allmusic considered Trick’s “rowdiest club hit yet”, was the lead single from “Book of Thugs”.
Trick Day Now
Seventeen years after the release of “Book of Thugs” and 2 more albums in the mix, 43 years old Trick Daddy is becoming known for his unfiltered language and inflammatory comments about, well..about whatever he feels like discussing. Whether it’s black women or banning Meek Mill from Miami for taking credit in being one of the leaders in Miami culture, Trick is taking names and demanding respect for Miami.
AllNiteRadio had a chance to speak with Trick a few weeks ago about his new album, TNT (Trick and Trina) and a new Miami restaurant called T Double Delicious which he says will feature “country delicacies such as Pork Souse, Hog Maws, Keywest Shrimp, Grits and eggs, Pork Chops, Lemon Pepper Turkey bites and Conch Fritters” As the head chef, Trick wants to ensure that everyone can afford to eat at “T Double Delicious” and has modestly priced meals for students and $3 meals for the poor man.
Trick Daddy has been in the industry for twenty years and said he feels like “a kid in the candy store” to be performing with Bun B, Scarface, 8 Ball and MJG at the Legends of Southern Hip Hop concert in Atlanta on July 29th.
If you remember, Trick Daddy has been afflicted with Lupus and refuses traditional westernized medications, “Every time they give you a medicine, they have to give you another one to deal with the side effects from the one they gave you” Trick has decided instead to treat his Lupus with a diet of pork, pussy and booty and says other than gaining a little weight, he is fine and will continue with his preferred treatment.
Talking to Trick is like drinking a glass of red Kool Aid with lots of sugar or driving without a seatbelt…you know better, but you can’t help but to enjoy being a little bad. Tricks colorful use of words, generalizations, bad boy charm and abrasive firm tone are disarming. Nevertheless you can’t miss out of this Legends Of Southern Hip Hop Event as we see some of the best rappers as they unite for our very own MC LightFoot for his epic birthday under the stars at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater in Atlanta this Saturday.
