BAPS | Trina x Nicki Minaj
Bih, what?! Okay so Trina has been promoting this new album, The One, for the past few weeks and she recently released the track listing. I immediately noticed that there was a Nicki Minaj feature and my interest peeked, especially since it’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Nicki, musically or otherwise. I began playing this song and when I realized the sample, I immediately had to stop the track because I wasn’t ready. Sampling Cash Money’s “Project B*itch,” I felt like the song was going to either be dope af or a hell naw. I’m literally typing this as I listen and Trina came out swinging and naming names!!!!! Jesus, I wasn’t ready. (I also didn’t know Trina and Tory Lanez were ever a thing….interesting) Nicki rode her first verse using the same cadence as the original version and both of them did what needed to be done for the track. My only gripe with the song is that I wish they would’ve done their own hook and flipped the original. I feel like people definitely slept on Trina’s mixtape Blue Magic that was released late last year so I’m looking forward to hearing this full-length album which is scheduled to drop this Friday. Hello Hot Girl Summer!
