Trina has taken to her Instagram Live to address the rumour making rounds that she is beefing with her longtime friend, Nicki Minaj.
Earlier this week, Reginald Saunders, the head of A&R at Trina’s label and cousin Bobby Lytes slammed Nicki for not promoting their collaborative single, “BAPS.” The song was apart of Trina’s album The One released on June 21, which was also the same day as the release for “Megatron.”
In Saunders’ post about Nicki, he also called out the rapper for heavily promoting her guest feature on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer” but only sharing “BAPS” for a short amount of time on social media.
“This isn’t the first time @nickiminaj has pulled this stunt and trust me it’s cool,” he said. “I can’t get over how fake people can be for a Lil fame, likes and followers. when everyone tried to warn me I still gave her the benefit of the doubt.”
This stirred heated conversations on social media, and on Tuesday (Aug. 14), Trina took to Instagram to let her fans know her plans to address how “BAPS” came about and why a video hasn’t been shot.
“First of all, everybody that knows me knows anything I gotta say, I will say it and address it,” she said. “I don’t need anybody to speak for me. Second of all, everything that I have to say, I will address it tomorrow. So catch me live and I will say it one time and one time only. I will not repeat myself.”
Now Trina has said that there is “no beef between me and Nicki,” and she will not stand by and watch anyone disrespect her friend or anyone who appeared on her album.
