Trina gets Uncensored this weekend on the season finale of the TV One autobiographical series.

The Miami rapper sits down for a candid look at her life, losing her mother, and playing the music game by her own rules.

Trina, real name Katrina Taylor, found fame in 1998 with her appearance on the Trick Daddy single “Nann Ni–a.”

The Liberty City native released her debut album “Da Baddest Bi–h” in 2000, and eventually climbed the charts with singles including “Da Baddest Bi–h,” “Pull Over,” and “Here We Go.”

The lyrics for her music were raw and explicit. In a preview clip for Uncensored, Trina says her music led people to confuse her rap persona with her real personality when it came to finding love. In fact, she says she was expected to be “raunchy” in real life.

“The song is the streets, that’s what it is. But when I’m with you, it’s a whole different person. That’s the Katrina person. The song is my alter ego. You can lust and do all of those things with that, but when it comes to me, it has to be real,” she says.

Uncensored: Trina airs Sunday, April 24, at 10 p.m. ET/9C on TV One. Previous episodes this season focused on gospel artist Erica Campbell; Grammy-winning performer CeeLo Green; actress and director Salli Richardson-Whitfield who talked about being rejected in Hollywood; Taye Diggs who revealed he was mocked for not acting Black enough; hip-hop mogul Master P; R&B singer Keyshia Cole who insisted she’s “misunderstood;” and music producer-turned reality star Stevie J, who did a lot of bragging.
