Trick Daddy is widely recognized as the greatest rap artist Florida had ever produced and one of the godfathers of Southern hip hop. His 2001 hit, “I’m a Thug” has been credited with infusing hip hop with new life. Blessed with the chameleon-like ability to flip from a booty-shakin’ party starter to insightful educator, Trick has been one of the most prolific southern talents since his introduction on Uncle Luke’s timeless 1996 dance floor staple, alongside the likes of T.I., Ludacris and Lil Wayne. The former convicted felon and ex-drug dealer has engaged listeners worldwide by making the “thug life” relevant to audiences across racial and economic lines.
Peter Bailey is currently the host of NBC’s nationally syndicated entertainment segment "Niteside NiteCap”, his award-winning work has appeared in the Miami Herald, Time, Newsweek, and The Village Voice.
