It’s Tuesday, so you know all the sports stations are going to be gabbing about the happenings in the “Monday Night Football” game last night. But lo and behold, the man who says he has the real scoop about a football player is not who you would think. Move over, Stephen A. Smith, Trick Daddy is ready to get his sportscasting on.
“We’re live somewhere in Miami, somewhere in the back alley, backwoods, back roads, back streets. We have breaking news,” Trick, holding an MTV News microphone, said as the cameras rolled. “Ricky Williams has reportedly left, yes, reportedly left the country with all the Miami Dolphins’ money. He fell in love with Lenny Kravitz. They plan on getting married somewhere where they can do it. If you see Ricky Williams, dial 911-HELP-DOLPHINS.”
Then the rapper broke into a huge laugh, he just couldn’t contain himself. Trick was living up to his name by having some fun with the false reporting. But hey, when your hometown team’s franchise player up and leaves the squad seemingly out of the aqua blue, you have to laugh to keep from crying.
The jokes soon turned toward his wife and the Osbournes. See, T.D. likes Ozzy so much, he sampled Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” for his new single, “Let’s Go.”
“Ozzy’s the real deal,” he said. “He’s the only one that gets a TV deal about his family in his house and everybody loves it. His wife is totally different from him and she lets him do whatever he wants to do. A lot of wives in America, you need to let your husbands do whatever they want to do. My wife is nothing like that. She’s hell, boy, I’ll tell you!”
Trick is talking about a different type of nuptials on his upcoming Thug Matrimony, due October 26.
“I’m married to the street,” he explained. “I ain’t gonna switch over. I ain’t gonna go religion on nobody. I believe in God — God is for the thugs too — but the streets are in the most trouble. So I’mma keep it focused on the streets and the struggle. That’s what I’m mainly about.”
“Mainly.” Not only. Trick also wedges in some verses about ladies.
” ‘Sugar on My Tongue,’ I got Ludacris on that song,” he said of another track on the LP. “It’s talking about the women and talking about them by [comparing them to] fruit. That way it’s clean for the radio, kids can watch the video. It’s one of my favorites on the album.”
Thug Matrimony also includes contributions from T.I., the Ying Yang Twins, Juvenile, Scott Storch and Ron Isley. Twista and Lil Jon appear on “Let’s Go.”
