Trina has spoken!

The ‘Diamond Princess,’ after a day of keeping fans waiting with bated breath, has finally addressed the rumor that she and ‘BAPS’ co-star, Nicki Minaj, are at odds due to the shooting of the tune’s music video (and other behind the scenes happenings).

Murmurs of a rift between the Rap divas was sent into overdrive when a member of the 40-year-old’s team (A&R Reginald Saunders) took to social media to call Minaj out for unprofessional behavior (click here to read more), to which the Harajuku Barbie responded:

“Right now Trina’s camp is accusing me of not doing enough to push her song ‘Baps,'” Nick said. “I have my own schedule… it’s not fair that people don’t understand that. I would never have someone from my team disrespect somebody that has been nothing but real to me.” 

Now, T is setting the record straight and publicly reprimanding Saunders for overstepping his bounds.  All this and more inside:


Drake‘s no stranger to enjoying views from the top of the Billboard 200 and, thanks to his recently delivered ‘Care Package,’ he’s revisiting the tally’s perch.

As we reported here, Drizzy sprung a summery surprise on fans last week with the release of his affectionately titled compilation project (comprised of early musical gems that, prior to now, hadn’t been available to stream on the leading services).

After just a day of availability, industry analysts predicted the set would top this week’s album chart to the tune of 100,000-120,000 sold.  Now, with its first full week of sales tracking behind it, look inside to see if they were close to the mark:



Apparently Rap superstars Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj went from bumping speakers with their 2011 hit, ‘You the Boss,’ to bumping heads thanks to a perceived diss found aboard Ricky Rozay’s ‘Rather You Than Me’ album.

Shortly after setting the ‘Net ablaze with her fiery interview with Joe Budden on her show, ‘Queen Radio’ (as we reported here), Minaj took to the ‘Pump It Up’ performer’s platform to continue the heated discussion and also weigh in on other hot topics. When asked if she preferred Ross over The Game, she launched into a tirade to address a lyric found on The Biggest Bawse’s song, 2017’s ‘Apple of My Eye,’ where he said:

“I told Meek I wouldn’t trust Nicki / Instead of beefin’ with your dog, you just give ’em some distance.”

The perceived diss didn’t sit well with the Queen.  Hear her response inside:


When Nicki Minaj released her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ in the November of 2010 she watched the set become one of the fastest selling albums to impact the charts in the last decade within weeks.

In its first month the Rap & R&B-flavoured release sold over 1 million units in the United States alone.

This week, almost a decade after its unleashing, the album has pushed the rapper’s discography to unparalleled heights on a sales front.

Trina found her self in a tangled set of headlines this week after a member of her team took to social media with damning jabs aimed at Nicki Minaj. 

As reported, the veteran’s A&R charged Onika with allegations of being deceitful and uncooperative when it comes to the push for the rappers’ collaboration ‘BAPS.’

In the time since, Minaj loosely addressed the matter on Queen Radio and multitudes of her fans have flooded the Queen of Miami’s social pages to throw shade and demand answers.

It’s also re-ignited the debate about the Barbz leader’s various spats.
