Trick Trick, who’s album The People vs. drops today, is well known in Detroit for being a certified G. Him and his crew have notoriously banged out with Trick Daddy and D Block, and Trick himself just beat a body last year at trial. His lead single, Welcome to Detroit, features an Em verse and hook and is supposedly doing well on Detroit radio. I downloaded the track the other day to see what all the fuss was about and I was not impressed. I guess I’ve heard worse rap music in my life, but nothing about this single says ‘hit record outside of Detroit’ to me. Trick’s flow is average and his lyrics are pretty much the standard ‘I’m an O.G. who raps now’ fare that you get from these types. As I’m listening to the song it occured to me, why would Em co-sign this guy? You can say what you want about D12, and I usually do, but at the end of the day I’ll admit that most of them can actually rap. I even read in some interview with Trick Trick, that Em basically did the whole song himself. He did the beat, the hook, and his verse, put it on a cd and handed it to this guy. What part of the game is that? The only logical answer I can come up with is that Trick Trick has Hailie and Kim tied up in a basement somewhere. I mean, has anybody actually seen Kim since Em announced they were getting back together last month? Yeah, exactly. Em didn’t have verses on either Obie or Proof’s albums, and those are his right hand mans, so you do the math.
