I have accepted the important job of carefully selecting a topless man every Tuesday in order to please my millions, possibly billions, of fans. At times, I feel like Superwoman…having this duty thrust upon me, can’t fail or the world will be destroyed. It’s tough, but someone has to do it.
Some may wonder, “Hey Kari, how do you choose a topless man week after week?” Well, this time I googled: Topless Male Rappers. There you have it folks…my secret is out.

When I first started researching singer-songwriter, rapper, actor and producer Trey Songz, I found out something quite disturbing. Trey Songz is not his real name…gasp! It’s actually Tremaine Aldon Neverson. I’ll let that one simmer for a few.
I bet Petersburg, Virginia didn’t know what hit it when Trey was born Nov. 28, 1984. Discovered at a talent show in 2000, Trey signed a deal with Atlantic Records. In 2002, he hauled ass to New Jersey and began recording his debut album….”I Gotta Make It,” which was released July 26, 2005.
Fun Fact: Before his debut album was released, Trey released “Open the Closet.” Obviously, it was in response to R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” series. On a scale of 1 to 10…how hilarious was this series of songs? I’m going with 20. R. Kelly – Thank you for this enjoyable piece of artistic expression.
Currently Trey is working on his fifth album, “Chapter 5,” set to be released early in 2012. To be honest, Trey Songz didn’t register on my radar until I heard “Bottoms Up” ft. Nicki Minaj, a track on Trey’s fourth album “Passion, Pain & Pleasure.”

I decided to do a little research into Trey’s musical past and found that he has some hidden gems.
For example, Trey and Drake <3 collaborated on a song called “I Invented Sex.” Thank God I chose Trey as my Topless Tuesday champion or I wouldn’t have known he invented sex!
Another song Trey and his abs were apart of…”Say Ahh.” Now wait one minute…I have shook my bon bon to this song, but had no idea that Trey was behind it. You learn something new everyday.
As a Christmas gift to his fans, Trey released a freestyle rap called “Trigga Shot Caller” a few days ago. I learned if you are trying to woo Trey…apparently he likes to be called The Triggerman.
Trey – I think I’m in love with you and I’m totally okay with calling you Trey, Mr. Songz, Tremaine or Sir Triggerman. Whatever floats your boat…just keep your top off and I’ll be a happy lady.
