School Days

Miami NW Senior High was the choice of high school for Trina. She was already dabbling a bit here and there with lyrics and music in school, and the vivacious girl naturally gravitated towards the majorettes. 1992 was the last year at her Miami high school, and after graduation she started rapping in her spare time. Trina’s mother; Vernessa Taylor, had a prolonged battle with cancer that she lost at 62. She passed away in September in 2019.

Trina’s younger brother, Wilbrent Bain Junior known as ‘Gonk’ was allegedly shot multiple times by a former friend, 27-year-old Ron Dobson. Wilbrent ‘Gonk’ was just 19 when he died, in April 2013.

Katrina tried to be a real estate agent and use her glibness to sell houses in Miami. The real estate job helped Trina maintain herself financially so she could continue to work in the music industry. While she was studying to gain her realtor qualifications, she met Trick Daddy, a well-established Florida rapper. He invited her to sing as a guest artist on the track ‘Nann Nigga’… the album was a massive success which meant, the Trina net worth was on its way up! She eventually gave up real estate to focus on her rap career.

During the 90’s, Trick Daddy took an interest in Trina and was inspired by her unique voice and no-bull lyrics. He needed a hard-core female rapster for his track ‘Nann Nigga’ and at that point the Pembroke Isle girl was as hard-core as they could be found in Miami. Slip-N-Slide was dropped in 1998, and the Queen of south Florida was moving up the ladder towards the throne.

Her popularity soon went from local to national and before long, Trina and Hip-Hop were mentioned in clubs, studios and households by fans across America. ‘Da Baddest Bitch’, Trina’s first album was released to the public in 2000 and it was a massive success.

The rapper did not rest on her successes and worked hard to release another three albums on her own.

She loves changes just like her favorite creature, the butterfly.
