Before Rick Ross was the king of Miami, Trick Daddy was running the town as the lead artist out of the Slip-n-Slide Records camp, which Ross coincidentally signed to early on in his career. Nearly 20 years after the release of his debut album Based on a True Story, Trick will return to the spotlight in Miami as he’s set to star in the upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop Miami.
The www.thug.com rapper confirmed his role on the show to Bossip, saying that production will start either at the end of April or the beginning of May.
“I just met with [Love & Hip Hop creator] Mona [Scott-Young] last week and we’re trying to do this thing right,” said Trick. “Put some real Miami bitches and real Miami niggas on the show…It’s all gonna come out on the show. We’re just trying to do what we do, do what I do.”
Thug also explained what his motive is for doing the show and why he’s choosing to go the reality television route.
“I’m really doing Love & Hip Hop Miami because there’s a difference between Old Cutler (a sleepy highway that connects Miami to the Everglades) money and South Beach money. Old Culter money is grandfathered in, South Beach is investors.”
The longtime MC also promised that he won’t embarrass himself on the show, which thrives on controversy.
“One thing I won’t do is make a fool of myself,” he said. “If we gon’ make a fool of somebody it won’t be me, so it’ll be interesting.”
Former Slip-n-Slide Records artist and longtime Trick collaborator Trina will also be making appearances on the show.
