While appearing on Miami, Florida’s 103.5 The Beat, Trina revealed the details of her past relationship with fellow rapper French Montana and addressed the status of her relationship with the Kardashian family.
Prior to speaking on both French Montana and Kim Kardashian, Trina rattled down the list of female emcees she’s a fan of. Among the artists she named were Salt-N-Pepa, Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, MC Lyte, and Roxanne Shante.
The late Notorious B.I.G. was later named as the male rapper she was a fan of in her early years. She also revealed that Biggie was an artist who mad her “pay attention to guys in Hip Hop.”
“I would probably say Big, honestly,” Trina said. “Because just from Miami we had like the Luke and those artists. And those are people I knew and that I looked up to, but then when it came to when I first really paid attention to Hip Hop it was like Biggie and Puff…That time when I really like fell in love with Hip Hop. And it was just the fly stuff and the talking slick and the stuff for the girls. And it was just that I think that was the moment—He was the one that really made me pay attention to guys in Hip Hop.”
With a new song titled “Fuck Love,” Trina was asked if the song pertains to French Montana. She explained that the record didn’t have anything to do with the rapper and was a song that was recorded late in the recording process.
“I’m not even thinking about those people, honestly,” she said. “I just think that of course because I’m surrounded around that situation that’s exactly what they’re gonna feel. That record was the last record that I had done… I don’t do this sneak dissing. If I’m at you, I’ma say your name. And it’s one of those kind of things I never told anybody publicly that I was ever in a relationship with him. We were friends, and I always built a great friendship before a relationship. And the relationship it just never was that. It was I’m around you. We’re good. We do business. We do music. I respect you. I thought you respected me and that’s the situation. But I feel like, some things you just don’t do out of respect. And if I feel like if you’re doing something that’s aside and I’m still around you then that’s not where I want to be. I don’t want to be in that situation because we’re all grown. And you have the right to go your way and I have the right to go my way. And that’s just kinda how it is. I’m not a grudge holder.”
In regards to her relationship with Kim Kardashian, Trina says that they’re still “close,” but haven’t spoken to one another in a while.
“We’re close,” the Miami rapper said. “I haven’t spoken to her. The last time I saw her was at Kanye’s concert in New York. I introduced him [French Montana] to them…at the Kanye West concert. I just feel like certain things are like, girl code…I don’t feel like she’s done anything to me. If this is my sister, I’ma rock with my sister for whatever it is. Ain’t nobody gonna turn me against my sister. And that’s what it is. I respect that. I just feel like it’s not what you do it’s how you do it.”
