Trina Celebrates Her Birthday With Surprise EP 'Dynasty 6' At Art Basel

Celebrate Trina's earthstrong by bumping her new EP Dynasty 6. 

While a healthy number of Miami artists have been blowing up in 2016, Trina is sending a reminder to the world about her reign in Dade County. After collaborating with Rico Love on her single “F*ck Boy,” the Queen of Miami has dropped the surprise EP Dynasty 6 and an announcement for her new album slated for release in 2017.

The Diamond Princess dropped the EP shortly after midnight (Dec. 3) during her birthday bash at Art Basel in Miami. "There's no features, just me," Trina told VIBE over the phone. "I just want it to serve as an introduction to the album, and it's something for the fans to be excited about."

Earlier this evening, Trina collaborated with The Neala Group to premiere the EP at an exclusive event called “Dynasty 6: The Launch” on South Beach.

During the event, Trina debuted the Dynasty 6 cover, which features six unique images of herself, sponsored by virgin hair company The Royal Hair and shot by photographer Derek Blanks. Painter Demont Pinder crafted works of art live for the crowd as guests enjoyed drinks made by Heaven Hill Brands and munched on tasty Lemon Peppers. Songs from the EP echoed throughout the event as visual artist Bee1ne customized each print.

"I'm just excited to have the EP and the fans don't expect it to be happening," the rapper added. "It's my way of introducing new music to them. With Art Basel, there's so many people in Miami for art, fashion, and music. It's fun. It's energetic. It's the new wave, and I'm just excited for all that."

Premiere: Motivation And Loyalty Reign On euro’s Two Pack, “Never Fold/Day Ones”

Young Money alum euro gives fans a two for one special with the release of his latest singles, “Never Fold" and "Day Ones.”

The song actually splits into two with “Never Fold” serving fans who are a sucker for lyrical mastery and "Day Ones" providing the right amount of victorious thunder and bravado.

"Never Fold" bloomed out of sheer pride and euro’s determination to throw lyrical jabs at anyone coming his way.

“My brother got a hold of the beat from Ayo the producer and he wanted me to record over it,” euro tells VIBE. “He called me out after I passed on the beat due to writer’s block. At that moment, I had to prove a point and that’s what came out of it.”

As for “Day Ones,” the tune shows how euro is rooted in more ways than one. "The motivation behind "Day Ones" is staying true on this journey, never selling out," he explains. "There have been many times we’ve had opportunities to take the easy way, but we have our minds made up to do this our way - the right way, for our people, with our people."

The tracks will be apart of euro's forthcoming album, Don’t Expect Nothing, to be released August 16th. The rapper has resided under the radar but still managed to snag big co-signs from the likes of Lil Wayne and Drake.
