6ix9ine is wavering in his loyalty to Nicki Minaj.
Fresh off the release of his new album TattleTales, the rapper is stirring more controversy this time over his comments about his “TROLLZ” collaborator.
While speaking with Billboard, Tekashi was questioned for calling out other artists for using Drake to get a hit. But the interviewer pointed out that he had an assist from Nicki on “TROLLZ,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, 6ix9ine seemed to not want to give Nicki her proper credit.
“Nicki’s my sister. I love that girl to death,” he said before asking, “When has Nicki ever had a No. 1 till this date?”
The reporter informed him that “Say So,” Nicki’s collaboration with Doja Cat, hit No. 1 prior to “TROLLZ.”

Tekashi reiterated, “I love Nicki. That’s my sister. I love her to death,” but indicated that Nicki has never had a No. 1 single of her own on the Hot 100. “Give me a Nicki single that’s been No. 1. Her record,” he said before declaring that “TROLLZ” was his single.
“Let’s not shy off. That’s my record,” he added.
Nicki remains one of the few artists to support 6ix9ine before and after his high-profile racketeering case. Despite the backlash she received on social media, she has unwavered in her loyalty. “When I know somebody there’s nothing you can tell me about him,” she said during an episode of Queen Radio. “That’s just how it is.”
She also defended him after he snitched on his former gang and broke what many rappers consider a street code. “Me and 6ix9ine is not on the block. We’re in the music business,” she said during an Instagram Live with Tekashi. “You rappers is in rooms all the time with people with sketchy pasts, and I’m not judging anybody ’cause I’m not doing that. I have nothing but respect for so many of these people, and I would never fix my face to talk crazy about them.”
