Did Trina Sign with Maybach Music? Is Rick Ross After All of Trick Daddy's Former Artists?
Trina's a bad bitch.
In fact, she's Da Baddest Bitch. And when you've earned that title, you're granted a virtual get-out-of-jail-free card and the license to do pretty much whatever you please.
But while it may not seem like it, she's also hustling. According to Media Takeout, Trina just signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal with Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group. And as a signing bonus, Rozay threw in a $423,500 Maybach 62.
Then again, it could just be speculation.
Neither Trina, nor MMG have released an official statement. But the former did use rather cryptic language in her birthday tweet to Maybach rapper Gunplay.

"Fam," eh? As in Maybach Music Group family, perhaps?
Trina also recently collaborated with Gunplay and Rozay's Carol City Cartel homie Ice Berg on a track, "Beam." And like Trina, Berg was a Trick Daddy protégé who's now on the MMG radar.
"I'm from out the Norland, Carol City area," the rapper recently told Crossfade. "I had me a little buzz going there, and Trick put on a showcase, where he was trying people out for Dunk Ryder Records and I been dealing with him since then, since like '06 or early '07."
Ross has been trying to sign Ice Berg for quite some time. But he's is still under contract with Trick Daddy's Dunk Ryder Records.
"Rick Ross and MMG want to sign me and been real serious about signing me. Ross offered me the deal, so I was like, 'Let me clean up the situation with Trick.'"
So what's going down? Did Trina sign with Maybach Music? Is Ross making a run for all of Trick Daddy's former artists?
