Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Where has T double D been? Yes, yes Miami's maestro of trill had a recent run-in with the law over cocaine, gun possession and driving with a suspended license. But more importantly the hometown hero has been putting in work in the kitchen. This explains the recent weight gain. But fool, shut up.

Trick's Instagram account is packed with more videos of conch, fried cornbread and grits than a White Owl is with stinky hydro on a Sunday night. His account is the long-hidden French Culinary Institute of soul food and it's all free. What's more, though, Trick is no amateur. He can cook for the whole crew or just some phat-assed dime piece the morning after.

Here are just a few videos that prove the man is ready to be Miami's next hot chef. If you're sitting on a pile of a cash, you might want to get involved.

Dedicated to training the conch and wing slingers of the future.

Here's the deal Trick. Open a spot. I'll be there, washing dishes, tenderizing the conch, and cleaning the blue crab. Miami needs this.
