Trina Launching Modeling Agency

The Diamond Princess

of rap, Trina, has announced plans to start a modeling agency called Diamond Dolls

to uplift women with self-esteem issues.

With a string of business

ventures launching this and next year, including a perfume collection called

Diamond Princess and a clothing line expected in April 2006, the Miami rapper

seems headed for mogul status.

“I have so many women

coming to me for advice [on] how to be focused, how to get themselves into some

form of identity as far as their career is concerned," Trina told

"A lot of women have low self-esteem and could be so beautiful if they

stay focused and stay strong."

The rap diva is also set

to star in her own sitcom, "With Friends Like These," which co-stars

actress Luz Whitney and video vixen-turned-actress Ki-Toy.

Trina's third album

The Glamorous Life is expected to drop on September 13 and features

rappers Young Buck, Snoop Dogg, and Lil Scrappy among others.
