Talking to 92.3 LA radio host Bootleg Kev on Thursday, the Compton-based rapper said he didn’t see himself collaborating with Nicki Minaj in the future. YG’s recent, uh, frostiness comes courtesy of Nicki’s recent collaboration with Tekashi 6ix9ine, the melted My Little Pony-turned federal informant, “Trollz.”
Bootleg Kev asked YG directly if he would work with Nicki again after working with the 23-year-old Brooklyn rapper, who testified against members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in exchange for reduced charges of racketeering, firearms offenses, and drug trafficking.
YG shook his head.
“It’s a no?” Bootleg Kev followed up.
The “Trollz” single came out last month, following Tekashi’s early release from prison in April due to coronavirus concerns. The single debuted at number one, which is fascinating (I’ll admit I haven’t listened to the song. I love blogging, but I also love myself).
YG had previously worked with Nicki on his single “Big Bank,” in which she featured prominently. But as The Source notes, YG’s beef with 6ix9ine predates his turn as a snitch, starting with Tekashi talking shit about L.A. gang culture. Of course, 6ix9ine’s involvement with the feds just added fuel to the fire; at Coachella last year, YG performed his song “Stop Snitching” in front of Tekashi’s mugshot.
6ix9ine, currently under house arrest, is more than aware of YG’s feelings. After a clip of the interview was shared to the Shade Room, the rapper responded in typical troll fashion.
“Smh Damn Nicki u done messed up big time,” 6ix9ine, adding his contribution to TSR’s infamous comments section.
