Trina Leaves Atlantic

Posted By on August 21, 2006

Slip-N-Slide Records’ rap diva Trina, born Katrina Taylor, has officially cut ties with her distributing label Atlantic Records, and is now searching for a new recording home.

Ted Lucas, owner of Trina’s label Slip-N-Slide Records, said that Atlantic was no longer able to assist the rapper in her upcoming endeavors.

“We decided to look for another label that will be able to promote Trina more effectively, and turn her into an even larger selling artist,” Lucas told AllHipHop.com and added that the “departure was amicable,” stating that Atlantic and Trina ended their relationship on positive terms.

Trina’s most recent album The Glamorest Life dropped in Oct. 2005 and is approaching gold certification. Her previous two albums Da Baddest B**ch (2000) and Diamond Princess (2002) also went gold, selling a combined 1.2 million copies.

Trina’s currently in the studio, rumored to be working on an album called Rock Starr that will be released in 2007.

“She is in the recording studio now, and we hope that her fans will be patient until her new material is ready,” Lucas said.

Representatives for Atlantic had no comment.
