MC Trouble (born LaTasha Sheron Rogers on July 30, 1970 in Los Angeles, California) was a female rap artist in the early 90s whose rising career came to an adrupt end at a young age.
After signing to Motown Records, MC Trouble released her debut album, "Gotta Get a Grip" in 1990 which peaked at #94 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The album sold 82,000 units after the 1991 launch of the Nielsen Soundscan.
On June 4, 1991, while she was production for her follow-up album, MC Trouble passed away in her sleep at the young age of 20 while at a friend's Los Angeles residence after suffering from an epileptic seizure brought on by complications from a brain tumor which resulted in heart failure.
In 1992, the single, "Big Ole Jazz" was released posthumously and appeared on the "House Party 2" soundtrack, resulting in a a second and final hit on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles charts.
