Trick Trick Plans New Album With Eminem & Dr Dre, Comments On Eminem’s Recent Weight Gain Rumors

Posted By on January 28, 2008

Trick Trick is planning his second album, The Villain, and talked to MTV news about working with Dr Dre and Eminem on the album. When asked about the recent stories about Eminem gaining weight he replied, "Em just picked up some weight, that's it," Trick, a fellow Detroit native, downplayed Thursday afternoon. He's nowhere [near] 250 pounds or anything like that. He picked up a little weight. He ain't walkin' around obese or some sh– though. He can still run two miles if you want him to and still out-box the majority of them. My man still gets down."

Trick talked about Eminem & his new album by saying, "He's still the coldest that ever did it," Trick said. "The game needs his album. He's rapping on [my album track] 'Who Want It.' He's like, 'Who want it?' [In the song] he's hanging out and these f—ing idiots are always at it. If you want it, come get it. He ain't trying to do nothing but be Em. I'm being me. If you want it, I got ya. He's Em on there. He's going for it. Whoever wants some can come get it. Em produced and rapped on it."

Trick talks about the track he did with Dr Dre, "The [rhymes] I did over Dre's track, I had to come hard," Trick added.
"You can't just rap on a Dr. Dre track, you have to come with it. It
has a message, but it's a street message. … Street cats have to deal
with a lot. A lot of people in the music business overlook the streets.
You gonna encounter adversity. You can't fall off. You gotta hold on."

Trick Trick worked with falled D12 Member, Proof. The first single, "Let's Work," was just released — is a song
called "Together Forever." He says it features the last-ever verse
recorded by his friend Proof from D12. "He did the verse in the studio [here in Detroit]," Trick began. "We
went to a [strip] bar, then went to the casino. The next night, we met
at a club called [the] Good Life [Lounge,] and he was trying to get me
to drink this Patrón. I was like, 'N—a no!' Then we went back to the
casino. Then the next night was the night he passed away." Trick continued, saying that the song, "Together Forever," also
features Kid Rock and Esham: "[It's] like the old Run-DMC song [of the
same name]. Proof [sounds] old-school [on the song]. Everybody went
old-school on it. Kid Rock is rapping too. Proof and E-Sham didn't used
to get along, but they made peace. We're all going eight [bars], eight
[bars] eight [bars]."

As for the title of his new album, The Villain, Trick said it's pretty self-explanatory. "I ain't knocking nobody on how they do their music," he said. "But the
artists, sometime we tend to sway with the time. It's ok to test the
water a little bit, but you gotta give them you. I'm back on that
gangster sh—, cuz. I'm not gonna front. I'm talking about that's
straight hardcore, raw Detroit gangsta sh–. My album ain't negative,
but I got a point of how I do things. People think I'm just wigging out
doing this and that, getting in trouble. That ain't the case. I'm
breaking down situations; 'if you do this to somebody, this is gonna
happen to you.' "
