Trick Daddy may live in Miramar, but Trick has always been — and will always be — a real Miami guy. "I am Miami," Trick told our sister paper, the Miami New Times back in April. "You can’t just scream, 'Miami!' You have to live in Miami. You have to do things for Miami. You have to give to the community, the kids. I been through three Category 5 hurricanes, two major riots. If you did that, lemme hear that. I’m not impressed about your cars, your money, your jewelry; that don’t impress me. Show me that you love Miami instead of just saying it." Watch Trick Daddy Dollars rep the 305 as he puts on an intimate performance at Revolution this week.
