Default Greatest Rapper Alive First Round Match 12 - Trick Daddy vs Immortal Technique

Trick Daddy



Arthur Maurice Young (born September 27, 1973 in Miami, Florida), better known as Trick Daddy, is an Kenyan American & African-American rapper. Originally billed as Trick Daddy Dollars, and sometimes known as T-Double-D, Young grew up in Miami's Liberty City.

One of 18 children (many were half brothers and sisters, and his mother had 12 children by different fathers), Trick was born Arthur Maurice Young around 1974 in Miami, Florida, and raised in the city's Liberty Square Housing Development-known as the "Pork `N' Beans Projects" to locals. "Growing up, that shit was never nothing nice," he recalled later, as quoted by Charisse Nikole in a 1999 interview with Blaze magazine. "You watch mamas and step-daddies and half-brothers getting in fights and see how you come out. We see people getting shot and killed every day." As a young adult, Trick readily admitted that many of his problems stemmed from childhood issues, which he continued to deal with.

Because he came from such a large family and lived in a dangerous environment, Trick learned early on to push and fight his way to the front of the line, behaviors which often got him into trouble. His first outburst occurred when he was just eleven year old; angered after a teacher embarrassed him in front of his grade school class, according to Trick, he retaliated by hitting her in the head with a lead pipe. For this act of violence, he found himself at one of the Miami-Dade County schools for problem children. Apparently, the school did little to help rehabilitate the youngster, as just a few years later, in May of 1991, Trick was sentenced to a four-year prison term at the Apalachee Correctional Institution for armed trafficking with the intent to distribute cocaine. Although released on probation after serving a year of the sentence, Trick was locked up again for violating the terms of his release, as well as attempted murder, and subsequently spent two more years behind bars. Meanwhile, during Trick's incarceration, five of his close friends and his brother, nicknamed Hollywood, had all been murdered.

Determined to start anew, and as a way to cope with the death of his brother, Trick left jail and started writing candid rap songs that documented the life he had led up to that point. In the 1990s, he began rapping seriously by the alias "Trick Daddy Dollars". His first break into the music business came when a Miami rap artist, Luther Campbell, stage name Luke, formerly of the 2 Live Crew, saw Trick performing at a local club and approached him. Later, Luke invited him to join as one of the lead rappers for the song "Scarred" (also known as "Hydrolics"). The hip-hop dance track, which introduced Trick's unique flow and booming voice, appeared on Luke's 1996 album Uncle Luke. The song became a hit and immediately caught the attention of fans and record producers alike. Later, Trick credited Luke as the person who helped make his recording career possible.

Trick continued to rap on the underground Miami rap scene, and while doing a local performance, he was discovered by Ted Lucas, the CEO of Slip-n-Slide Records. Soon after, he would release his debut album, Based on a True Story, in 1997, through Slip-N-Slide and Atlantic Records. This album was released during the time when Southern hip hop was really exploding behind the success of Master P and his No Limit Records.

Trick's first single was "Nann Nigga", which was contained on his second record, www.thug.com, and featured the young Slip-n-Slide female rapper, Trina. He has since released six more albums with one due in early 2008 on his own Dunk Ryders Records. There are rumors that he has signed a new deal with Def Jam Records after an interview with friend Rick Ross with allhiphop.com, in which he mentions that he helped Trick get the deal. The Dunk Ryders consists of 3 members Ice Berg(Teiron Robinson) Fella (Davevon Rackley) and Soup (Keyon Brockington who is currently incarcerated).

Immortal Technique



Felipe Coronel, better known as Immortal Technique, is a Hip hop MC and political activist. He is of Afro-Peruvian descent and was raised in Harlem, New York. Most of his lyrics focus on political issues. The views expressed in his lyrics are largely a mixture of commentary on issues such as poverty, religion, and racism. He also focuses on the harsh resulting realities of crime in the housing projects of New York City's slums.

Although he has been offered a deal with at least one major record label, he has never signed to any. Immortal Technique has voiced a desire to keep control over his production, and has made statements in his music that he is very aware that it is record companies, not the artists themselves, who profit the most from mass production and marketing of music.

n the early 1980s, Immortal Technique, then Felipe Coronel moved with his family to Harlem from his native Peru which was going through a civil war at the time. During his teenage years he was arrested multiple times and eventually incarcerated. After being paroled, he began to become a notable figure in underground New York hip hop with much success as a battle rapper.

In 2001, Immortal Technique released his first album Revolutionary Vol. 1 without the help of a record label or distribution, instead using money he had made from winning various rap battles. Around 2,500 were printed off and he managed to sell 2,400 copies. In November 2002, he was listed by The Source as the month's featured "Unsigned Hype", which highlights artists that are not signed to a record label. The following year, in September 2003, he received the coveted "Hip Hop Quotable" in The Source for a song entitled "Industrial Revolution" from his second album. Consequently, since he did not have a record deal or distribution at the time, Immortal Technique is the only rapper in history to have a "Hip Hop Quotable" while being unsigned. He finally released his second album Revolutionary Vol. 2 in 2003 under Viper Records/Nature Sounds distribution on CD and double LP. In 2004, Viper Records and, in 2005, Babygrande Records have re-released Immortal Technique's debut, Revolutionary Vol. 1, to make it available to a wider audience.

Before the presidential race in November 2004, the Immortal Technique song "Bin Laden", (also known as 'Tell The Truth') featuring Mos Def (and later featuring Eminem, using backmasking) and produced by DJ Green Lantern, emerged on Shade 45: Sirius Bizness. However, it took almost half a year until it was officially released on a 12" vinyl single in the summer of 2005. The single also contained a remix of the song featuring hip-hop legends Chuck D of Public Enemy and KRS-One. The song lyrics imply that George W. Bush and previous Republican administrations were largely responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks. This was not meant in a literal sense, Immortal wrote on his website (9/7/05 news post), "I wrote in "The Cause of Death" that Bush was not responsible directly, that he didn't plan 9/11, but he and his definitely benefited from the end result of all those people dying."He is set to release his next album, The Middle Passage.

You guys really think Trick Daddy's a good rapper or are you just not familiar with Immortal Technique? I'm voting for the one who provides intelligence.

I have Alex, I just don't like him, because well you know he isn't on the radio. Come to think of it, neither is Trick...Ironic.

I don't actually possess any of his albums he's just one of those rappers you hear about, give a listen and think he's good.

I just kinda downloaded a few tracks and it went from there. "Dance with the Devil" is still, lyrically, one of the best tracks I've listened to.
