Trina Talks About Not Winning Awards & Being Excluded from ‘Top Female Rappers’ List: “Your Top 5 Has Been At Some Point Influenced by Me”

Published: Tuesday 4th Jun 2024 by Rashad

Just 9 months shy of the 25th anniversary of her debut album, 2000’s ‘Da Baddest B*tch,‘ iconic rapstress Trina undoubtedly boasts one of the most enduring careers in Hip-Hop yet remains widely unsung in comparison to many of her hitmaking female counterparts – some of whom boast less time in the industry.

A hot topic addressed during a particularly candid interview with multi-hyphenate TV producer, CEO, and podcaster Carlos King recently, the “Queen of Miami” laid into the topic of being underrated in royal manner and didn’t mince words when reflecting on her impact in her native music genre.

When not regaling on her groundbreaking entrance into the music industry, Trina reflected on everything from her alleged beef with Nicki Minaj and headline-grabbing comments about Beyonce being the “Queen of Rap” to current events like Diddy‘s ongoing legal drama and so much more.

On the topic of Rap royalty during her interview on ‘Reality with King’ podcast, she was quizzed the ‘Don’t Trip’ diva on if she’s tripping about how frequently she’s omitted from people’s “top 5 female rappers” list.

“No,” she said plainly (as seen in the clip above) before elaborating. “I feel like I know what I’ve done and I feel like even your top 5 has been at some point influenced by me, I know, or probably even worked with or loved – even idolized. It’s probably somebody I really support and love in the industry.”

At other points in the interview Trina discussed how she felt about always being nominated for awards but never winning and how she – alongside names like Missy Elliott, Eve, Lil Kim, and others – helped pave the way for the current generation of female rappers like Sexyy Red, City Girls, and others.
