YG said a ‘big no’ to re-collaborating with his ‘Big Bank’ co-star Nicki Minaj after she worked with infamous snitch 6ix9ine.
Recently taking to L.A. radio station REAL 92.3, the rapper (born Keenon Jackson) didn’t bite his tongue when asked by resident DJs Bootleg Kev and DJ Hed if he would ever work with the GRAMMY-nominated femcee again.
“I don’t know, my feelings is hurt. I’m a real street ni**a,” he said. Later, he definitively declined and said she was “canceled.”
Needless to say, by the time his comments reached the desk of several Minaj fans – affectionately called #Barbz – they flew to her defense.

As emphasized by a number of fans, YG’s biggest hit as a leader to date is the Nicki Minaj-assisted ‘Big Bank.’ However, his overall discography lists Jeremih‘s ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em,’ which peaked at #6 on the Hot 100, as the highest rung he’s reached on the tally.
Elsewhere in the interview, YG dished on wanting to vote for Kanye West for president and more.
