The People Vs. review

Musical journey Trick Trick has blazed is still open for discussion

When you have been charged with an M-1 (slang term for «first degree murder charge»), it looks like the whole world is against you. Trick Trick introduces his major label debut, The People Vs. Back in 2003, Christian Mathis a.k.a. Trick Trick had been charged with felony firearm. The case went on trial in February 2004, but would be adjourned later on and the charges against Christian Mathis would be eventually dropped. The case may be closed, but the musical journey Trick Trick has blazed is definitely still open for discussion – loud, raw, and hard. Trick-Trick grew up on 7 Mile Road, just east of Detroit's infamous 8 Mile Road. As an independent artist, he is no stranger to the rap world. This President of Wonderboy Entertainment sold over two million units in his independent career before teaming with Motown Records. He has also opened for the likes of Eminem, Lloyd Banks, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Big Boi, Lil' Jon and the Eastside Boyz, Missy Elliott and even 50 Cent. In the mid-1990s, he spent his time hustling the streets and trying to make a name for himself. While Eminem has became a household name, Trick Trick has been a mainstay on the underground hip-hop scene. But that's about to change.

The People Vs. introduces the dramatic circumstances of Trick Trick’s arrest and trial

The introduction starts with some bell sounds, violins and gunshots in the background. M-1 follows with a very entertaining rhythm. Piano, keyboards and violins introduce the dramatic circumstances of Trick Trick’s arrest and trial. The atmosphere is overheated and you can feel Trick Trick’s struggle to prove that he’s the wrong one. No need to introduce Welcome To Detroit featuring Eminem. The masterpiece, which acted as a big-league introduction to Trick Trick from one of hip-hop's brightest stars, suddenly gave him a national platform. His personal calling card, My Name is Trick Trick, which he wrote and produced, became an instant Detroit underground classic, with a syncopated hook and an autobiographical account of Trick Trick’s personal struggles. Rich of two different styles, Attitude Adjustment marries Trick Trick with Jazze Pha’s very beautiful and original southern style that shouldn’t leave the listeners indifferent. Big Mistake featuring Mr. Porter has the raw sound of the D12 Underground EP bassline that contrasts with Denaun Porter’s R&B sounding vocal combined with Trick Trick’s raspy voice. Leave Your Past is dedicated to Christian Mathis’ homies. The rhythmic track mixed up with keyboards, claps and soft vocals will introduce you into a nostalgic dimension. The song sounds like prayer and gives the listener a very nice and soft soul music note. War features another Detroit talent, Obie Trice.

Trick Trick has armed his Motown Records debut with his own quick-witted verbosity

The second oldest of five kids, Tricky grew up on the west side of Detroit. He joined a gang and turned to selling drugs after his father left home when he was 13. Eventually, he served a year in prison for selling cocaine. Now the self-described "mama's boy" with a linebacker's build owns a real estate company and is a father of four himself. He's tremendously proud of The People Vs., which in part chronicles his 2004 murder trial and features his second track with Eminem, No More to Say. One of the most respected players in Detroit’s hip-hop scene, Trick Trick has armed his Motown Records debut with his own quick-witted verbosity. The album stands as a testament to his aggressive lyrical flair, with the multi-instrumentalist (key board, guitar, and drums) and producer displaying razor sharp mic skills and the kind of dogged determination that puts him in a class by himself. With The People Vs. Trick Trick delivers a testimony that is at once, riveting, powerful, and raucous – and like all the truly memorable hip-hop manifestos – it’s based heavily on undeniable personal truths.
