This review is from: Diamond Princess (Audio CD)
Okay, I just want to point out to all potential buyers....
If you actually LOOK at the cover of this album, look at the song titles, and actually THINK that there is going to be alot of heart-felt rapping in there, and positivity for the youth, etc. etc. then you're obviously mistaken.
The music on "Diamond Princess", for what it is, is AWESOME. The beats, the flows.. Trina even spits out some nice lines in alot of the songs. I just really think that people under-rate her, because they are too focused on the "sex talk", and whatever else Trina is known for.
It is a fact that Trina can rap, and this album displays it. If she couldn't rap, then why is Missy Elliott, Ludacris, Fabolous, or Eve doing songs with her? Why did Rah Digga, one of the hardest female rappers EVER, make a song with her called "Gangsta Queens?"
Trina is no Roxanne Shante, but she can hold her own. Her voice and her flow is all unique. She also has witty lyrics, and yet at times nasty/abrasive/arrogant/etc lyrics. Which I love.
This whole album is great, my favorite tracks have got to be:
Rewind That Back
B R Right
U & Me
How We Do
Do You Want Me
The only song I really don't care for is "Kandi Gurl"..it just doesnt fit the theme of the album.
Anyways, if you're a person who only likes serious stuff, then this album ISNT for you.
If you're a person who likes to have fun, and don't mind hearing explicit lyrics from time to time, then DEFINATELY pick this up.
Trina has my support all the way.
