Must See: Trina Tributes Nicki Minaj At BMI Urban Awards

1efcee1bf8988a798d6bdf7a18d7bb97 Must See: Trina Tributes Nicki Minaj At BMI Urban Awards

Missy Elliott. Lauryn Hill. Nicki Minaj.

Though other Female Rappers may have enjoyed fleeting moments of popularity during their prime, the three named above can not only boasting of long running popularity, but the cultural impact to back it up.

Indeed, whether one chooses to love her or hate her, Minaj’s impact on Rap and Pop culture’s serving of Urban music does stand as one of the most phenomenal yet underrated chapters in the industry’s story.

For, while she joins Rihanna and Beyonce to be hailed as one of three leading Black female artists both home and away, her polarising nature still leaves many unable to accept how remarkable her rise has been.

So, as to praise the ‘Still I Rise‘ performer at the BMI Urban Awards last night, her Rap sibling Trina shocked its audience with a moving tribute dedicated to her.

Watch below!

Kudos to Trina for being so secure with her own feats, that she could praise those scored by another!

Nicki could never f*** with the success of lauryn hill with just one solo album put out. Lauryn hill had ppl like stevie wonder and alicia keys penning letters to judge to go easy on her with the jail time bcuz ppl desparately want new music frm her and want to work with her. She ain’t f***** with missy either 5 platinum albums one gold and she still being featured and producing for ppl albums till dis day like fantasia,monica,jcole,tamar,demi moore,and katy perry.

    I’m about to tell nuttin but the truth……..for all of u lame asses callin trina irrelevant go jump off a bridge. trina was on her grown woman true enough by doing dis tribute and showing love to another femcee,but this s*** is a bit much and kinda pissed me off in away bcuz showing love is one thing but paying homage is totally different thing and trina went to far by doing dis s***. I can say she did it better than nicki could have ever work a stage and she ain’t worried by nicki or any rap chick takin her place bcuz trina is da baddest b**** and queen in her own rite. She is the only rap chick from the 90’s the stayed consistent when puttin out music and never took a break. She was the featured queen b4 nicki even came in the game and still gettin featured on ppl songs and albums. She stay booking stages and headlinging shows and going out ontours. So fall the f*** back haters. She just got singed to a label and working on her 6 th album. She has a platinum and gold album under her belt,BET uses the hell out of her for the awards by asking her to host,present at the awards and she has been the only rap chick nominated 8x and never won. She will cuss they asses out tho.
