Must See: Trina Tributes Nicki Minaj At BMI Urban Awards

Published: Friday 23rd Aug 2013 by David

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!

    Trina this is sad…. Where you forced to tribute nicki you needed a check that bad boo?

  9. MissyAddict August 23, 2013

    You don’t get tributed because of how many years you’ve been in the game but what you’ve DONE in the game.

  14. Kori August 23, 2013

    Your a snake and the truths not in you…the mere fact you could leave out lil kim when she had a college course after her at Syracuse university, both national and local media attention, while also offering a new raunchy uncut type of female rap shows just how biased you are…as far as trina..shes a good person but a flop INDEED!! this tribute means nothing!!

    • nicko August 23, 2013

      lil kim is lame, shes worth 18M after 15 years, Nicki is worth 45M after 3 years. 😉

      • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 23, 2013

        LOL b**** u inflated the f*** outta that. Her net worth is 20 million at the most. Nicki’s.

      • Someone’s Mad August 23, 2013

        That’s what I’m saying ! And Kimmy’s needs to be updated ! Her Ex-Manager is suing her ass for 18 Mil… Looks like she’ll be in that Public Aide office.. :p

  15. mother monster August 23, 2013

    Is this a joke? Lol Nicki having a tribute? Lol gurl bye only place she can get a tribute at is an low budget unknown award show by a basic black b**** named Trina? Lmao

    • DaHotNig August 23, 2013

      B**** you need to go give Gaga some applause because Katy is wearing ARTPOOP out with those numbers! Tell Gaga to go meditate on that with her t-Rex jaw bone!

      • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 23, 2013

        Artpop is still in the top 10 on billboard. Where is nicki’s flop songs at?

    • K August 23, 2013

      when did Nicki ever dis trina they are on songs together,Nicki and trina always at parties together Nicki even bought out Trina at the britney tour that she was opening wasn’t even her tour and yet she sitll brought out haters love to spread rumurs to start sh-t get da f-ck out of here.

  20. skrrrt wait August 23, 2013

  21. Mariah Carey Mothered you h***… August 23, 2013

  24. Dev August 23, 2013

    Sorry. Lauryn has maintained a career on one album and still has respect, can we say will be for Nikki 10 years from now?

    • K August 23, 2013

      we will have to wait and see don’t we,like everyone else who did that for the other females.

    • Someone’s Mad August 23, 2013

      Yes , we’d have to wait and see.. I mean ANYTHING could happen.. Just look at Lil’ Him after a few years..

  25. Girlfriend August 23, 2013

    I don’t see anything wrong with another female rap artist spreading love to another. That’s what’s needed that culture is dying. As far as Trina being In the game longer, patti labelle tributed mariah carey, baby face tributed beyonce. It happens. This was great to look at, y’all don’t have to be negative all the time.

    • ,. August 23, 2013

      these people is confused they talk about female hip-hop artist unit,and when them females try to do that,then them people talking about unity come back are and turn there nose up on it…man if you listen to some people you rip you self apart…anyways i agree with you 100% this was very nice of trina and nicki and trina always bin cool Nicki bin in the game for a short time but she did alot in that short time she put in work and she is still putting in mad work in the game…and congratz on Nicki on winning them 17 BMI awards.

    • Someone’s Mad August 23, 2013

      You Deserve a damn tribute ! Bravo ! I agree 120% !

  26. . : : h 2 o : : . August 23, 2013

    LMAO @ “long running popularity”. She hadn’t even running for 2 years in the music industry when she started blaming her disastrous album sales on retailers.

    Nov. 2010
    Stink Friday
    2.3 million

    Apr. 2012
    Stink Friday: Silicon Loaded
    1.5 million

    Nov. 2012

    Long running popularity?

    MY ASS b****. My ENTIRE ASS!

    • channel_ROMAN August 23, 2013

      How was the Re-Up a flop when it’s sales were added to Roman Reloaded.

    • Someone’s Mad August 23, 2013

      Compared to Kim’s flop mixtape… How many sales…? A few hundred thousand..? Would you like to buy a vowel? Then again.. If you b****** are praising a Pay-Pal h**, I’m sure you couldn’t afford one 🙂

  27. Justcoastwitem August 23, 2013

    Cash Money was honored as a whole last night.

    It’s very humbling of Trina to do this. Doesn’t make her any less of an Artist.

    The fact that Nicki was even honored after 3 short years of putn female rap in a choke hold is just spectacular. But you bxtches don’t allow her to be great. Smh

  28. Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 23, 2013

    SlayNika getting that respect, yasss ma.

  35. TrinaQueenOfthesouth August 23, 2013

    Trina is confident, she’s a QUEEN in her own right. She’s still doing shows, just signed a new deal that’s why she is a able to salute and show love. Trina and Nicki been friends way before Pink Friday catch that tea and know them facts.

    • Someone’s Mad August 23, 2013

      Finally ! People who realize ! Nicki gave shout-outs to her in her mixtape days. And then they became close after My Chick Bad RMX .. These h**’s aren’t informed. XD

  36. The Original Truth August 23, 2013

    LMAO!!! This is the only rap chick they could find to do this s***!!! this made my morning!

  37. fucl August 23, 2013

    Say what you want about Nicki, she has had dozens of genius features and probably has more pop top tens than Gaga. This is called progress. I think she’s had more success than Lauryn, Kim, Foxy, Missy, Eve and Trina combined. #blackpower #hardworkpaysoff

    • EveRyder August 23, 2013

      Lmao b**** bye f*** outta here with that bs u talking. I need to call oprah and tell her to get u an appointment with iyanla vanzant bcuz ur life need fixin after making that bogus comment. 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. All the up coming femcees want to work with her. Missy make her bread behind the scenes.

    • STOP THAT S***!!! August 23, 2013

  39. EveRyder August 23, 2013

    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.

  40. chi town loves lil kim August 24, 2013

    the queen bee now I really don’t like Trina she a weak
