Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Trick Daddy f/ Ice Berg, Murk Camp
Title: Why They Jock
Label: Dunk Ryders Records

The only single released so far from the upcoming "Finally Famous: Born a Thug Die a Thug," Trick Daddy is back to his roots as the gangster poet of Florida. "What do the future hold? Man I don't know/I just do it keep it hood, and clean it for the radio/Keep on my hater shades, blockin out they hater ways/And keep gettin paid while them broke haters hate." Without Trick Daddy there'd be no Flo Rida, no Plies and no Rick Ross - that's just real talk. Trick moved the Florida rap scene beyond Miami bass and brought a country grammar to rap even Nelly could envy. He may not be as wild as when he first started out but he hasn't gone soft either, and Mizzle Boy's track would fit "Thug Matrimony" or any other album in Trick's catalogue. That catalogue is owned by Slip-N-Slide though, so it will be interesting to see if Trick can push this single and album to mainstream exposure on a much smaller label. Like an old pair of Timbs, Trick Daddy never wears out and just keeps on stompin'.
