Trina’s A&R Personal and Bobby Lytes took to their Social Media to bash Nicki. Both men expressed their feelings towards Nicki Minaj’s lack of participation in a song recorded by Nicki and Trina. They accused Nicki of promoting Megan Tha Stallion’s track “Hotgirl Summer” more than she did “BAPS.” Social media had lots to say in response. Nicki also defended herself on Queen Radio. Trina later took to Social Media to clear the air. She revealed that the collaboration was done for her for free.
Trina addressed all members of her circle. “But you’re not gonna disrespect nobody. Another female artist, you’re not gonna disrespect Nicki Minaj or nobody else that’s on my album because these people did this off my face and my favor. They did it because of my relationship with them. I don’t appreciate, I don’t condone, I don’t give the approval for anybody—no man, stay out of girls’ sh*t. Don’t come sideways talking about anything that has to do with women.”
“We ain’t gon’ talk about this no more,” she added. “There is no beef between me and Nicki Minaj. There will be no disrespect for Nicki Minaj or nobody else that’s on my album. I appreciate each and every artist that took the initiative to be apart of this The One album.”
