Trini R. Washington  

Rapper, Record Producer

Trini R. Washington Sr. aka TriniDadd was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in Unity Hospital on February 27, 1967, but was raised in Hollis Queens from 1967 to 1980. He lived in the South Jamaica Houses (40 Projects).

His career in music started in an alley in Hollis in 1982 between 195th and 196th St. Darryl and Joe would be rhyming and he would be drumming on the garbage cans. One year later and they were on tour with the hit single "It's like that". They traveled with RunDmc doing shows until 1996. It was at this time that he began working directly for Dj Jam Master Jay as his recording studio manager for his studio 24/7 Recordings. During his time working with Mater Jay, he learned the art of music production and was consulted on numerous tracks, such as the single "I Poppi" from RunDmc's last studio album "Crown Royale." He also worked with Fat Joe and The Terror Squad, Method Man, and Dj Big Kap to name a few.

In 1999 he went Atlanta to start working as Jam Master Jay's Dj manager, setting up shows for him all over the South. By 2001, he was working on endorsements with Ralph Lauren, Michelob, and Coke Cola for Jam Master Jay. Unfortunately, by Halloween 2002 Jam Master Jay passed. After a year hiatus Trini returned and was offered a Job working in the fashion industry for Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons. He enjoyed the fashion experience but wanted to try his hand at acting. Trini got an agent and his first job was in 2005 on the game show "Chain Reaction." His next gig was "Law and Order SVU". Trini's other on-camera experience includes "Down with the King" video and "Oooh Which you Wanna Do" video, both RunDmc projects.

Music is Trini's calling, so he went to work at Czar Entertainment as A&R/Producer and was able to get Belovid signed to Capital Records. While working for Czar he toured with The Game and Snoop Dog and worked with Gorilla Black, Mario Winans, Sheik Louch, Brandy, Foxy Brown, Bryce Wilson, and Jimmy Henchman.
