TRICK DADDY
Thug matrimony: married to the streets
SLIP-N-SLIDE/ATLANTIC

Crunk hip-hop is here to stay and Trick Daddy (aka the ‘Mayor of Miami’) represents Miami crunk in style on ‘Thug Matrimony’. Even if you’re not a crunk head yourself, I defy you to stop your head from nodding while playing this record.

Now a big star, Trick has been able to entice a plethora of artists into providing their own contributions to the album, most notably from

Ludacris and Ron Isley. Ludacris features on the exceptional Sugar (Gimme Some), seemingly an ode to his last conquest and a lesson to all future ones! Ron Isley lends his tear-jerking tones to I Cry and the brothers would definitely be proud.

Venturing deeper into the album Trick’s social conscience becomes apparent. These are the Days, U Wanna Sangand The Children’s Song are all aspirational songs teaching kids to “hold on to your dreams”, a message that Trick feels is not impressed enough on kids in school or at home.

‘Thug Matrimony’ comes to a climax with the club anthem Down Wit Da South. The perfect song to get a party started and fill dance floors. A real booty-shaking-floor-filler!

Trick Daddy fans will love this album.
