TRINA - STILL DA BADDEST
In 2007, the recording session on Trina's fourth studio album took place. In an interview with Billboard, Slip-N-Slide Records President Ted Lucas stated, "The songs selected for the album were tracks ladies needed to hear-about maturing and keeping focus [...] Her fans know she's rough and they like that. So she's back with a little of that, but she's matured as well. That's why she's still the baddest." In an interview with Rajul Punjabi, Trina described the album's direction as experimental, noting her vocal additions to "Single Again" and the techno-production on "Crash My Party" as prime examples. Trina revealed that the energy surrounding the album is different because it marks her first release since parting ways with longtime boyfriend, American rapper Lil Wayne, forcing her view through a different perspective. Although she viewed the relationship as a "beautiful experience" that brought light to a new side of her personality, she stated:
TRINA - STILL DA BADDEST
Still da Baddest garnered generally positive reviews from critics, most of whom favored Trina's signature raunchy rap styling over a softer-side. Awarding the album three-and-a-half stars, David Jeffries of AllMusic praised the album for capturing the raw edge found on the rappers debut album with a modern twist, but had mixed emotions on the album's ability to duplicate the success found in "Here We Go" (2005). Jeffries continued his review by noting "I Got a Thing for You" and "Wish I Never Met You" as the album's main flaws, referencing them as "manufactured 'Here We Go' clones" dragging down what would otherwise be an entirely successful full-length. Jeffries ends his review by stating "It's the abundance of these brassy, 'love me or hate me' moments that make Still Da Baddest a step in the right direction and one of her better efforts, even with the woefully uninspired ballads." Praising Trina's appealing curves, frank attitude and seductive songs, Jason Seifer of Walmart praised Trina's raunchy style stating "Any concerns Trina had about being reduced in rank or status are quickly squashed within the span of a dozen tracks, leaving Katrina Taylor the freedom to get a little more personal with her audience." Seifer went on to compliment Trina's softer side on the Keyshia Cole-assisted "I Got A Thang For You," later showing great appreciation on the album's tracks that featured additional rappers and vocalists. Praising Trina as one of the few female rappers around at the time, Alex Thornton of HipHopDX noted that although Still da Baddest isn't a huge leap for Trina in terms of subject matter, more effort has been obviously put into this album than any of her past releases. Thornton went on to negatively state that the album is ultimately forgettable since much of her work borrows from recent Pop and Hip Hop successes by other artists, even though it was never intended to be an artsy, avant-garde offering for hipsters so the formulaic approach isn't as much of a problem as it might seem. Aisha Johnson of AllHipHop noted that the album lacks any true substance and fails to go beyond her sexually aggressive commentary. Praising Trinas fiery southern flow alongside guest appearances from Missy, Keyshia Cole, and Rick Ross to help bring forth some creative synergy, Johnson felt the LP doesn't compare to the rappers debut Da Baddest B***h. Awarding Trina with the title of "Queen Victoria of Rap," Evelyn McDonnell of VIBE praised the album for proving Trina to not be a "one trick pony," favoring standout tracks like "Clear It Out," "Single Again, "Look Back At Me," and "Wish I Never Met You."
This is not to disparage either; I am a fan of them all, but the point is 15 years later Katrina Laverne Taylor can still release new singles and still score media attention without the assistance of a reality show or stories about beef with her junior.
She has done so by maintaining the fan base she developed more than a decade ago by shrewdly figuring out a lane and working within it consistently. She has dibbled and dabbled over the years, but for the most part, Trina continues to explore many of the themes espoused on Da Baddest Bitch: her big ass; her great sex game; how terrible men are and typically only good for money; her having her own money; her amazing ass again; her being da baddest bitch.
Sometimes being a good artist is figuring out what works for you and sticking with it. People still love big asses (and still pretend non-black women popularized them); people still like to harp on how good at sex they are; men are still typically terrible. The same way my mom likes Frankie Beverly and Maze to stay in their lane is the same way I appreciate Trina for sticking to hers.
You damn skippy she is. Trina smashed back on to the scene earlier this year with her hot new album "Still Da Baddest B@$!". From the start of the album, Trina is in rare form hitting you hard and early with "Killing You Hoes", which is a track that tells all the chicks out there that are hating on here exactly what they can do. This one is definitely gone to the be the back up off me track of the summer for all the baddest chicks out there.
Then comes the first single off the album "I Got A Thang For Ya f/Keyshia Cole". This track has been out for a while but can still be heard bumping in cars all over the country. The track combines Trina being Trina mixed with that beautiful voice of Ms. Cole to create a song that just says all those things that sometimes you wish you could say but can never find the words. I know you like is he talking about Trina, but yep I am. This song is very well written and is Trina opening up and being very vulnerable.
Now you didn't think she was going to let you go without a few classic bangers and she doesn't. My favorite track of this type is "Clear It Out", I can see this one bumping in clubs all summer long. We folks start hating on you, tell em to clear it out. For all you hardcore Trina fans you will have noticed that she has very much cleaned up her flows, hardly ever getting as raunchy as the classic flows from her first few albums that made her famous and infamous all at the same time. But that is not to say that she don't bring it out a few times on this album and she does. Soon as "Look Back At Me f/Killer Mike" drops you know instantly that even though she doesn't use it as often she still has that razor tongue that she is known for. The song is well, all I am going to say is listen to it. She ain't playing. The other track that she kind of takes it there on is "Phone Sexx", where she basically describes how she has some fun by engaging in some very racy phone conversations.
I am here to write another review for my girl Trina. I put this album on reserve way back in November of last year and trust I picked it up yesterday when it arrived. Man, this has to be her best album yet. Trina really let her fans know that no other Female in the South will ever take her title. She is still and always going be Da Baddest B***h. This album has some really great songs and she is doin' her thang from beginning to end. I think the only 2 songs I am not too fond about are tracks 12 & 13, but other than that, the rest is off da chain. Oh yeah, there are 3 bonus tracks on the album, but the only place that sells the cd with these 3 bonus tracks is Best Buy so get it while they are still available. To be honest, her bonus track called "I Got A Problem" is my favorite on the whole album. It may be on the raunchy side, but it just tells gives anybody all the details in any sexual fantasy. I have all 3 of her other albums (Da Baddest B***H, Diamond Princess & Glamorest Life) and if anybody out there has not bought anything from Ms. Trina, then you need to get with the program and get down with Da Baddest B***h alive. Oh and by the way, Khia, you ain't got s*** on my girl Trina. You had the nerve to even put a diss track out on her when at one point people thought you were dead. The only cd that was worth buying was the first one with just that one hit "My Neck, My Back". Yeah, your first cd was ok, but you are taking behind Queen Trina and even tried to take her title on your song "Jealous Girls" and call yourself da baddest b***h when you are not. But your second cd was HORRIBLE. You need to back off my girl and get it together. Yeah, I saw your little video on youtube and trust, you have lost all respect from me. Oh and one more thing. You are DEFINATELY NOT THE QUEEN OF THE SOUTH OR DA BADDEST B***H, SO SWALLOW THAT. Trina, I have been a fan of yours since 1998 when you came out with Trick Daddy with "Nann N***a" and I am still and forever will be a fan of yours. Keep doing your thang baby. You have all of my support. Love Ya!!
