Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon Artist: Trina
Title: That's My Attitude
Label: Slip-N-Slide Records
I've been down with Trina's rough-n-rugged Floridian female approach to hip-hop for a while now, which is why I'm surprised I don't like "That's My Attitude" more. It's not as though Ian Lewis produced a bad track, even though it seems to be imitating the whistling melodies of today's Southern rap scene as opposed to innovating. It's not as though Trina's raunchy and unapologetic rap got toned down: "My waist skinny, my ass mo' fatter than you/Sorry for being conceited, that's just my attitude/Get on my level hoe, you ain't on my latitude." She's sounding all the right notes, but on some level she's almost parodying herself, following her own formula a little too perfectly. Her fans will be happy with this song, but if Trina wants everyone to get on her level, it would be nice to see her take it to a higher level first.
