Why Trick Daddy Is Trending: Trick Daddy isn’t pulling any rabbits out of his hat with his most recent viral moment. The Miami rap veteran made an appearance on a recent episode of Drink Champs, and his name quickly spread across social media as he elaborated on his famed “Eat a Booty Gang” lyric. And, by the sounds of it, he wants the gang to be welcoming to everyone.
“It’s the Eat a Booty Gang, and I’m currently in the process of expanding the franchise,” Trick explained in a longer version of the viral video. “Now I’m enlisting the assistance of the Eat a Booty Gang’s female members.”
“Yeah, women eat the booty, too,” Trick clarified after co-host N.O.R.E. inquired as to what he meant by “women sustaining a gang.” “Yeah, I get a little ate out.” Trick Daddy was born on September 27, 1974, in Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida, to a mother and a father who loved him.
In Liberty City, after relocating from Goulds, Florida, his mother, Pearl Brockington of South Carolina, reared him and his ten brothers and sisters in the Liberty Square apartment complex. It was because of the hue of the apartment doors that his childhood home was referred to as “Pork-N-Beans” by the locals.
While growing up, Trick’s father, Charles Young, was a neighborhood pimp who would take Trick and his brother, Derek “Hollywood” Harris, to live with him. His father and he began dealing crack cocaine on the streets while he was still living with him and his mother.
Young was arrested for drug and handgun possession when he was only 15 years old. Young was arrested on an attempted murder charge the day after he was released for shooting a man during a street fight on the day of his parole. He was convicted and sentenced to prison at the age of twenty. The following year, his sibling was slain.  After Young was released from prison, Ted Lucas, the founder of Slip-N-Slide Records, pushed him to concentrate on a rap career and stay out of trouble on the streets.
Trick had an appearance on the tune “Scarred,” which was produced by Darren “DJ Spin” Rudnick and featured on Luther “Luke” Campbell’s 1996 album Uncle Luke. Trick was a former member of the 2 Live Crew. After becoming a smash, the song immediately drew the attention of both fans and record producers alike.
After a successful career in the music industry, Ted Lucas founded and ran his own record company, Slip-n-Slide Records, where he signed the rapper in 2007. Trick Daddy Dollars’ debut album Based on a True Story was published by Slip-n-Slide Records in 1997, and the record became successful in the Miami area.
With the release of Trick’s next album, www.thug.com, he decided to drop the “Dollars” from his stage name once and for all. The club-oriented track “Nann Nigga,” which featured Trina, became a nationwide hit, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles list in 2007.
Trick Daddy joined with Atlantic Records in 2000, and the following year he released Book of Thugs: Chapter AK Verse 47 on the label. “Shut Up,” which according to AllMusic’s Jason Birchmeier was Trick’s “rowdiest club hit yet,” was the lead single from Book of Thugs, which was released in September. Next up was “America,” which featured Society and was a powerful political track that writer Omar Burgess compared to other sociological tracks in Trick’s catalog, such as “Ain’t No Santa.” Trick’s next single, “America” (featuring Society), was a powerful political track that writer Omar Burgess compared to other sociological tracks in Trick’s catalog, such as “Ain’t No Santa.”
