Nicki Minaj Reacts To Trina's BET Award Snub

In an unusual show of solidarity between female emcees, Nicki blasts BET for not nominating Trina as one of the best female emcees.

Trina found herself absent from the list of BET Awards nominees despite dropping a mixtape, an album [2010’s Amazin’] and playing a prominent role on Ludacris’  2010 effort Battle of the Sexes. Trina was left off of a list of nominees for Best Female Hip Hop Artist that included Nicki Minaj, Diamond, Cymphonique and Lola Monroe. The latter two artists have yet to release a retail album.

Shout out to my big sis @TRINArockstarr she has always been my idol! I don't knw wut happen wit the nominations.. But she raised all of US!17 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

Trina was rather short with her reaction to the preceived snub, posting “Fuck BET…” to her Twitter feed after the nominees were announced on BET’s “106 & Park” Tuesday. Nicki Minaj, who also appeared on a different version Ludacris’ “My Chick Bad” and alongside Trina on Yo Gotti’s “5 Star Chick” showed support for the femcee who would have essentially served as her competition if she was also nominated. She sent a similar message out via Twitter saying she wasn’t taking the awards seriously.

Looks @ nominations. Didn't know it was April Fools... *waits for Trina's name to appear before I take this seriously*3 hours ago via ÜberSocial Favorite Retweet Reply

For her part, R&B sonstress Keyshia Cole also pointed out that she also hasn’t been nominated despite having seven number one singles. But she said she hoped that everyone who goes has a wonderful time. BET has yet to respond to the statements made by any of the artists.

That awkward moment when u realize in everyone's eyes your not the sh*t anymore. #POW. I've officially got the memo. Thank mtv/bet4 hours ago via Twitter for Android Favorite Retweet Reply

    I have always been a fan of Trina. IM not saying that she was great lyrically or anything like that but she did it her way and I can respect that. Trina and Keyshia Cole as well should be glad they didnt get nominated by B.E.T. who the fuck wants anything from that FRAUD of a network. Anyway Trina and Keyshia are 2 fine sista's!!

    this entire "twitter moment" completely went over y'all headz. i HATE Trina as a RAPPER but I do feel where they're coming from.

  • John -Boy

    So because she put out an album and a mixtape she should be nominated for an award? GTFOH! Everything that comes out of her mouth is either garbage or a cum load. Exactly what award should she be nominated for? Throat of the year? Fuck outta here with that bullshit!!!! Thankyou BET. Lord knows we didnt need another undeserved artist winning anything.

  • DL Dub

    Oh and Trina has no right to be nominated anyway. "Da Baddest Bitch" has more skills in her throat than she does with the mic, catch my drift? Clearly what BET is saying is that the unknowns that no one has ever heard of that just got signed hat morning to some shitty label, are more relevant than her. I forgot she was even a rapper..

  • DL Dub

    Wait... 106 & Park still exists? BET is still a channel? Dude I thought they blew that shit up by now. Do they have ANYTHING even remotely worth watching? Arent they losing money by just keeping it alive?

  • jack johnson

    trina?? who cares she dropped a mixtape and had some guest apperances on ludacris album a year ago wow big deal. wheres rah digga or eternia? unlike trina they actually put full albums out last year that were good, and if you want to talk about guest appearances just look at all the people jean grae has owned over the past year on the songs she appeared on

  • Controverse

    Neither of them deserve an award.

  • Indeed

    u know for once i'm actually siding with these women. i mean i don't ever listen to female hip hop (even tho Nicki Minaj is my real life baby mother) but i feel where they're coming from in a real way.

  • Jose Vasquez

    I guess it takes a while for people figure out that BET is shit.

  • Anonymous

    all this shit is political thats why pac was going to quit rap and start acting full time

    • Anonymous

      guerilla jones you're a fuckin dumbass....that was a direct quote from pac. he said rappin is not fun for him anymore because its too political... but acting he enjoy his work. go take a nap.

    • Indeed

      yeah that totally went over your head but that's ok, it happens like that sometimes.... i mean what else can we say

    • guerilla jones

      ooohhhh thats why!!cause acting is all about talent and politics arent involved...shut up lol clown ass dude.

  • Nike Champ 718

    Maybe she should develop some mic skills before she gets nominated. This goes for all these T&A rap broads.

  • Really tho?

    Ha...Chicken's getting up set at BET awards?!? Like that shh really means anything

  • Anonymous

    i couldnt name one trina song or verse that came out in the past 2 yrs.... not that im looking for new trina music daily or anything though but im just sayin....

    • JG3

      True but how can the last females mentioned be nominated and they have yet to release an album? At least Trina was on a couple hot tracks as mentioned in the article. She should've been nominated in my opinion.

    Glad to hear that these female artists recognize BET and MTV for what they really are now. Oh and "FIRST"
