TRINA / PLIES
8 p.m., Statehouse Convention Center, Governor’s Hall. $22.
You couldn’t say that she was the first, but perhaps more than anyone before her, Trina has made her name by asserting female sexuality in rap. Self-dubbed “Da Baddest Bitch,” the Miami rapper jumped into the spotlight with a guest turn on a single by Trick Daddy, where she bragged, in detailed and unprintably explicit terms, about her willingness to experiment. Follow-up singles include “Pull Over” (“That ass too fat,” goes the chorus), “No Panties” and, most recently, “Look Back at Me,” where Trina brags that her ass is “so big, like the sun.” If not for the summer hit “Shawty” featuring T-Pain, Florida rapper Plies might be best known for a 2006 performance at a Gainesville nightclub, where an argument spiraled out of control and two members of his entourage were convicted of attempted murder for shooting into the crowd. He comes to town in support of his debut album, “The Real Testament.” Tickets are available at Uncle T’s and Ugly Mike’s Records in Little Rock, Phaz I in North Little Rock and Dime One and the Record Rack in Pine Bluff.
That new single with the ass-eclipsing lyric.
