(AllHipHop News) Veteran Miami rapper Katrina “Trina” Taylor and The Executive Club Worldwide are teaming up with Penalty Entertainment (Sony Red Distribution). The Diamond Princess’ Rockstarr Music Group imprint will join the Penalty roster, and her sixth studio album will be released via the label.
“I am honored to welcome Trina and The Executive Club Worldwide to the growing Penalty family,” expresses Neil Levine, President and CEO of Penalty Entertainment. “The Trina brand is one of the most prevalent brands within the Hip Hop industry, and Penalty is pleased to continue the trajectory of such an A-list artist.”
Trina’s next project is scheduled for release this summer. The album features executive production credits from songwriter/producer Rico Love (Beyoncé, T.I.). The female rhymer also recruited Love for the LP’s lead single “The Real One.”
“This is the beginning of a new direction and stage within my career, and now my own imprint – Rockstarr Music Group,” states Trina. “I have collaborated with so many different talents during my career thus far, and I am beyond excited to share this phase with the world as I continue to evolve.”
Previously, Trina dropped studio albums such as Da Baddest B*tch (2000), Glamorest Life (2005), and Amazin’ (2010). She also released over 10 mixtapes since first grabbing the attention of the music world as a guest on Trick Daddy’s “Nann N***a” in 1998.
“This is just the beginning of a successful new phase for Trina and her undeniable career growth,” adds Executive Club Worldwide’s Jullian Boothe. “I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside her on all of her albums, and we are entering an exciting new chapter to take it to the next level.”
