Most people know Chris “Trick Trick” Mathis as an original bad boy rapper from Detroit, a leader in the Motor City’s urban music community. But there’s so much more to the complex man, who is known to be street tough but also kind and philanthropic. On Saturday, a little more than 100 family members, friends and fans were treated to a festive first-hand look into Trick’s other side. With his lovely wife, Leslye, he hosted a lavish event at a hall in St. Clair Shores promoting their new business venture, Elegant Fantasy Events, a multi-faceted event planning company. Several exquisite table presentations created by Leslye were on display, while guests dined on a variety of culinary delights supplied by Blue Eyed Peas, Fooshay’s Catering, Kris the Carver, Bucharest Grill and Sugar Sweets 313. There was a presentation, an open bar, music and dancing. Trick Trick and Leslye also own a travel agency known as Dream Life Travel. “My husband wrote, directed and produced the movie, “The Last 24,” and they just finished filming, so we also had a wrap party for the actors and crew,” said Leslye, explaining the purpose of the evening. “We incorporated the launch, his wrap party and my birthday all in one.” Guests included Carol Dorsey, Ziad Kassab, Ayman Bedoun, Victoria McClemore, Mikey Eckstein, and Moet Michigan ambassador William “Joey Zasa” Cartwright.
