Trina Salutes Nicki Minaj at BMI Awards

Trina

Trina honored fellow rap diva Nicki Minaj during the 2013 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards in New York last night. Wearing a red dress and blonde wig, the Miami rapstress performed Nicki’s hit “Moment 4 Life” during the show and received props from the Young Money rapper herself.

“@TRINArockstarr killed it,” tweeted Nicki, who was recognized as Songwriter of the Year, while “Starships” earned Song of the Year honors.

Check out Trina’s tribute below.

    @kate, I think that @jabb means is that Foxy/Kim would never do tributes FOR EACH OTHER. just to clarify.

    @Twista, Kim, Foxy, Eve, Missy have to much respect for themselves and each other to do a tribute to a new comer who sells out to mainstream autotune pop half the time.

    @Aimanos, Exactly! Who the hell is Nickifor those true female rap legends to hop on a stage for her? It should be the other way round.

    @jabb, Kim would never do ANYTHING that doesn’t paint her in a positive light to the public. That’s her problem. She’s not genuine. When kim collaborates with females or pays homage, it’s just to say that she’s done it(to look good for the public) When Trina does it, it’s because she honestly loves & respects her peers. I’m proud of Trina beyond words. Sweetest female rappers to ever enter the game & still the baddest b!*ch

    @STAN THE FAN, why are you chatting rubish?
    Search on youtube to see Lil’ Kim’s tribute to MC Lyte.
    She also paid tribute to all the female rappers that came before her on her mixtape MS. GOAT.

    Trina lame for that

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @lalalaaa, No, what’s lame is ANYONE who tries to take away from Trina’s humble nature. That’s what’s wrong with the game. Everybody looks for it to be a catty episode of Real Housewives for the femcees. Why WOULDN’T Trina, a secure successful women, salute the next?
    Wouldn’t a big sister still show love and honor the success of her little sister?

    It takes a REAL bitch to be able to salute another female doing it especially the the egotistical world of hip hop. Love Trina. She is definitely a Queen in her own right. She definitely needs some saluting her way. #BaddestBitch

    ASS-KISSER… AND IT STILL HASN’T PAID OFF TRINA. JUST BE A REAL BITCH AND MAYBE YOU’LL GO FURTHER.

    TrinaFan Reply:

    @BEDSTUYFLY, u mean further as in 6 albums deep? Selling millions and doing it on an independent label? Pretty sure she’s accomplished a lot in her career already. And she’s accomplishing more than u sitting on ur computer making rude comments. And I’m one of Kim’s biggest fans too. Trina’s able to be a friend to no Kim & Nicki so let’s not go to bashing her.

    BEDSTUYFLY Reply:

    @TrinaFan, LOOK, ALL I’M SAYING IS THAT TRINA HAS BEEN RIDING NICKI’S DICK SINCE 2010, FOR WHAT?!
    NICKI WAS NEVER RESPECTFUL TO THE FEMALES PRIOR TO HER. KIM & MISSY KNEW IT TOO, CUZ REAL RECOGNIZE REAL. TRINA JUST COME ACROSS AS SO WEAK AND DUMB.
    ALL THAT ASS KISSING, AND WAS TRINA FEATURED ON ROMAN RELOADED OR THE RE-UP? NO! NICKI IS SELFISH AND WANTS TO BE THE ONLY FEMALE ON THE MARKET. HOW ARE YOU “QUEEN” WHEN THERE IS NO REAL COMPETITION?

    [Reply]

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @BEDSTUYFLY, You sound stupid. You just want to encourage the same stupidity that’s kept the female rap game dead for so long. Nic was/IS respectful. She’s QUEEN because while everyone else took the liberty to take a break, Nic got on the field and rand 12 circles around the b!t*hes who are now just WISHING they could keep up! SHOUTOUT TO TRINA FOR BEING HUMBLE, SUCCESSFUL, SWEET, & UNCOMPROMISING WHEN IT COMES TO SHOWING LOVE TO THE NEXT

    [Reply]

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @BEDSTUYFLY, All yall can stfu with the hate. It really speaks for YOU as people when you look down on someone for being human & being humble enough as one secure successful woman to salute the next! Would a big sister decide NOT to show love to her little sister just bcuz the little sister came after? NO! They show love to each other as they should!

    S/O to her !! thats REAL LOVE !

  9. boi.c

    She looks nice but that was hella wack. And it’s not really about the tribute as it is so much that she has BEEN kissing Nicki Minaj ass. Nicki pays her pixie dust and TRina just keep those lips puckered hoping for a collab with nicki, quite pathetic.

    [Reply]

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @boi.c, Trina didn’t do it for a collab. She did it for love. Trina and Foxy Brown are the ONLY femcees to personally greet & embrace Minaj from the BEGINNING of her success. Trina & Nic had a birthday together & everything. They’re not the best friends in the world bcuz they don’t know each other like that, but they love & respect each other a lot. Trina is SUPER genuine with her love & doesn’t give it to impress others (like Kim), Trina shows love from the heart. Always has & always will. How dare yall diss her for that. Would a big sister refuse to love her little sister because the big sisters been alive longer? NO! So what kind of catty idiotic logic are u using?

    THIS IS FUCKED, this is like Beyonce tributing Rihanna, Madonna tributing Mariah Carey or Jay Z tributing J. Cole.. Trina is a beg friend Nicki should be paying tribute to Trina. Just saying.

    [Reply]

    ccine Reply:

    @Yeezus Christ, i agree to some extent with ur comment, trina paying tribute to nicki is kinda weird, but it’s definitely not like any of the examples you stated. That’s bluntly because trina may be before nicki’s time, but nicki has definitely accomplished more than trina. That being said a more accurate example is either brandy or kelly rowland (no shade to them both) paying tribute to rihanna…. i mean yes rihanna has accomplished more than both of them in the MUSIC industry, however that wouldn’t stop it from coming off a little strange.

    [Reply]

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @ccine, It’s only strange bcuz ignorant people aren’t used to nice humble people in this industry. The old ARE supposed to show love to the young & the young are supposed to reciprocate & show as much as they can later! This has been going on in human relationships for how long? Everybody just wants someone to be better than everyone else in the entertainment industry when the reality of the situation is A big sister wouldn’t pass up opportunity to show love to a little sister simply because the big sister is older. This is the same situation

    [Reply]

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @Yeezus Christ, Idiotic. That’s what your comment was. Since when was the old showing love to the young considered wrong? NEVER! Would a big sister refuse to show love to the little sister because the big sister’s been alive longer? NO! so why is this any different? Oh bcuz in the idiotic entertainment world, everything is about being selfish or fighting! Get a life and learn to appreciate golden moments like this, because femcees showing love to each other out of their heart is too rare.

    That was really awesome Trina! It takes a real bitch to do that, because honestly these other bitches don’t wanna give respect when it’s due!

    Shout out to Trina, Foxy Brown, Remy Ma, Da Brat, Iggy Azalea, Angel Haze, and Eve for showing Nicki love and support, plus I know Missy wants female hip-hop unity!

    Love how Onika was getting crunk!

    @.carter, Remy Ma does like Nic. They’ve met before & Nic has shouted Remy out since THE beginning. Missy doesn’t like Nic. And Eve is wishy washy af. One interview she say’s she dont like her. The next she does. The next she don’t like her. The next she defending Nicki from critics…..

  15. YO

    I’ve lost a lot of respect for Trina. It’s a shame the amount of butt kissing an established female rapper has to do to try to stay relevant. Nicki Minaj could disappear tommorrow, and her music and style would become forgotten in a matter of days.

    [Reply]

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @YO, You lost resepct because you’re an ignorant immature Pu$$y who only respects fighting, selfishness, & stupidity for the sake of entertainment. Trina & Nicki have been on good terms and shown love to each other since WAY before Nic’s first album dropped. Why would a big sister refuse to show love to her little sister because she’s been alive longer? She wouldn’t So stfu

    [Reply]

  16. whaaaa

    Onika only has 2 albums out and shes getting a tribute from a vet? what kind of fuckery is that? it should be the other way around. Trina, she wont feature you on her next album!

    [Reply]

    STAN THE FAN Reply:

    @whaaaa, Trina is a genuine soul who doesn’t do stuff with agendas like past femcees. She did that because she geniunly likes nicki. They’ve shown love to each other since before Nic even had an album. Why would a big sister refuse to show love to her little sister because she’s been alive longer? She wouldn’t. The only reason you’re mad is bcuz this performance doesn’t live up to the standards of the entertainment industry as far as keeping an edge by being catty, selfish, & nasty all the time. I respect Trina even more now. i’d call her a QUEEN for this type of behavior

    Lol I swear y’all are fucking PATHETIC. How is paying homage ass kissing? That’s whats so fucked up about black culture. Y’all complain when people don’t give props, but when someone does y’all say it’s ass kissing. Trina is a real bitch PERIOD for giving Nicki props. It’s finally nice to see femcee’s supporting one another for a change, stop being so negative.
