Why did you decide to sign with Universal? Universal made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Wendy Day negotiated the deal, and when she negotiates, she brings something to the table that’s definitely worth it. Where did you get the name Trick Trick? I got that name when I was younger. I used to be just Trick. I was a nasty ass little boy, so they kinda handed that name to me. What was the situation between you and Trick Daddy? It was a situation where his boys were acting stupid. They tried to rob me when I was in Miami. I know the game; I’ve been a dirty muthafucker for a long time. They were tryin’ to get me to go to some afterparty. They started off mad, cause of my name Trick Trick. No resemblance. Fuck him, you know? No fuckin’ resemblance. Why would I try to come up off his name? I’ve been Trick since I was little. I wouldn’t even know who this nigga was. The only reason I was in the area was cause the club was poppin’ off and he just happened to be having a party at that club in Miami. So I made it my business to say that when they come my way, I’m gonna show them how it’s done. They didn’t get me. They didn’t get nothing from me. I decided when they come through my area, I’m gonna show them how it’s done. I don’t want his fuckin’ jewelry. That’s why I beat they muthafuckin’ asses. Me and half the city of Detroit. But originally it wasn’t really directed at Trick Daddy, because he didn’t start it. it was his boys. Everybody looked at it as Trick Daddy vs. Trick Trick, but it was his boys. So when he came up, you were ready for him. It was already set up. Detroit was aggravated at what had happened. That’s the kinda city I live in. But I’m done with that shit. To be honest, I hate talking about it. It’s some old shit that happened. I wasn’t trying to blow it up. I’m a street nigga, so my beef stays in the streets where it belongs. I’m not tryin’ to blow up by nobody. I had to get my hands on quite a few people, so I’m not tryin’ to get in no trouble. I did a documentary because a friend of mine had footage of that shit. He was there that day with a camera upstairs, and he caught some of that shit on tape. What’s your relationship like with Eminem? Me and Em are cool. We’re family. Em’s a real good friend of mine. Eminem actually produced two songs on my album The People vs.. We couldn’t publicize it because Interscope ain’t have nothing to do with it, but Em actually co-executive produced this album. Eminem did a lot on this album. I also got Jazze Pha and Mr. Porter from D12 on this album, Diesel the Hitman, Miss Corona, Obie Trice, and Proof from D12. Do you think it’s hard to blow up nationally off a song like “Welcome to Detroit”? Nah, I don’t think it’s hard at all. You had songs like “Welcome to Atlanta,” so why not Detroit? Any recommendations for Super Bowl week? Detroit is a party city; that’s what we do around here. We ball out. So it’s hard to say. I can’t endorse nothin’ personally, but there’s a bunch of parties goin’ on. - Julia Beverly (Photos: Jeremy Deputat) OZONE
