Miami rapper Trina announced in a recent interview that she is no longer affiliated with the Slip-n-Slide label. Saying that she's ready for a change, the femcee hinted that she is possibly mulling a move over to Ross' Maybach Music.
"I'm no longer considered to be affiliated with Slip-n-Slide," Trina told MTV' Rap Fix. "Slip-n-Slide is like my family. I grew up with those guys, and it's been a long journey. I love them dearly, but it's time, in my career, for me to move forward, and I'm excited about taking the next step and seeing what's there for me."
"I'm not the kid on Slip-n-Slide's roster anymore," she continued. "I've spent my whole career with Slip-n-Slide — five albums — and I'm really excited about going forward without them, but I still look at them as family, no matter what."
She admitted that she and Ross have history as artists and didn't downplay a possible move.
"Ross has been a mentor in my career from the start," she said. "Even before the world got a chance to see him, he was a part of my team. For him to come out and be very successful and do his thing and for me to still have him in my life, it's a blessing. For me to work with him on my sixth album and have him there to guide it, understand what I want and see my vision, that means everything to me."
