Nicki Minaj and Tekashi 6ix9ine joined each other on Instagram live to promote their new song ‘Trollz’ where she proceeded to make a huge statement DEFENDING him over his decision to be a snitch in order to get a shorter prison sentence.
As you know, Minaj was called out in the past few days for working with someone who most of the rap industry has major issues with, after Tekashi 69 ratted on his fellow gang members in his criminal case.
But, she does not care, and has a clear explanation of why she is now fully backing the rainbow rapper!
On the duo’s IG Live broadcast, Nicki Minaj addressed the situation, saying, “Street ** have every right to feel how they wanna feel about snitchin’ because they live that life,” she began.
She continued, “I feel rappers need to play it easy because everybody mingles and integrates with everybody and if a top executive rat called one of you unsigned rappers right now to sign y’all, y’all signing.”
Of course, Tekaski jumped into the conversation at that point, asking her to repeat that statement LOUD, in case anyone missed it!
“We not going — if a rat executive calls y’all to sign, y’all signing. So, let’s be clear when we talk about rappers versus street **. It’s rappers that put guns they ain’t never bust a day in they life in the music all the mother—-ing time so we’re not talking about rappers. I feel street **** have a right to feel how they wanna motherf—-in’ feel because they in the field and you know, I’m not on the block with 6ix9ine.”
In other words, Nicki is agreeing with Tekashi’s position that they are musicians and any street code doesn’t apply to the artists in the industry.
So, are people going to buy it?!
Interestingly, Nicki mentioned her husband, Kenneth Petty and said he did not approve of Tekashi’s 6ix9ine’s being a snitch. In fact, she says she respects his decision because he ‘has lived a different life.’
But, Nicki continued to blast the rap industry for shutting out Tekashi 69 for turning states evidence.
“Y’all wanna make it rap one minute and streets the next minute. Y’all wanna talk about people not writing they raps one minute, and then do songs with people that don’t write raps the next minute. But if somebody talk about the integrity of hip hop it’s a problem, but y’all can talk about the integrity of these streets and not snitching. We not on the block.”
The bottom line, the duo just dropped ‘Trollz’ and had almost a MILLION people watching their IG live.
