Portrait of Trish Barnes
Originally born Patricia Barracks (aka Trish Barnes),the only daughter of a Jamaican mother and father who fled the West Indies in the early 80's in search of the American Dream. Trish and family would settle in a section of north Philadelphia called Nicetown. Growing up in the mean streets of Philly; surrounded by drug dealers, crime, and hard times would only become the fuel for this young fiery Mc. As the sounds of Kool G Rap's "Road 2 the Riches",Rakims "Microphone Fein", and EPMD's "SO What U Sayn'" thumped out of her older brother's speakers religiously. Trish would become a sponge and absorb everything she heard as a child. As she got older her interest grew and at the tender age of 12 she would begin to pen some of her fist rhymes. Around the time of the Biggie and Pac era Trish would become heavily influenced by the 2 rap powerhouses and really begin sparking as a hott mc. During a summer in the late 90's a local radio station Q102 hosted a series of battles over the phone by radio jock Zulu "Tha One Man Gang". Now a young Trish rapping under the name of Chyna Wyte called the station to test her lyrical sword. For 3 weeks straight she would slaughter competition & win a chance to battle the champ who today is known as Cassidy but back then it was known simply as B. As fate would have it Trish would suffer a loss. This defeat would not derail the young mc but only motivate her. In weeks to come she would meet a street promoter named Duce who was said to have industry contacts. Within a year Duce would set-up meetings with Swiss Beats, Steve Stoute, and even Dr.Dre. Following an impressive display Dre gave Trish 2 track 2 write to but differences between Duce and Trish would cutt the trip to Cali short. Back on the east coast frustrated and uncertain what to do Trish would meet a new jack street manager named Millionz who would become very instrumental. While working with another artist that scored a deal with Interscope Trish would get a chance to be a feature artist on a song prod. By the legendary Clark Kent. About a year later she would jump on a mixtape called the movement 2 as a featured artist on a song called It's A Mission. This song would soon start a buzz in the streets. Wasting no time Trish began to work on her own debut mixtape called Ms. Untouchable. Ms Untouchable scorched the streets and took her all the way to the hood Grammies aka the mixtape awards on the anniversary of BIG POPPAS Death and the last awards we would have Justo with us RIP. This would have the streets looking for more HEET and 8 months later Trish Barnes would provide just that with her follow-up Times Up hosted by Superstar Jay. Since the release of Times Up Trish has moved over 5,000 cds respectfully. Now, with numerous mixtape & dvd appearances heeting up the streets like a furnis in July, armed with good looks, husky voice, sic flow, and descriptive street tales TRISH BARNES is definitely on target for a major record deal as well as an artist to watch for
