Now that Nicki Minaj and Tekashi 6ix9ine have confirmed their next collaboration “TROLLZ” is arriving on Friday (June 12), Twitter has had a chance to weigh in — and not everybody is jumping for joy.
On Wednesday (June 10), Black Barbie shared two photos of their “TROLLZ” video shoot to her Instagram page and noted she would be donating some of the proceeds to The Bail Project, Inc.
“A portion of the proceeds from #Trollz including merch items, will be going directly to The Bail Project Inc.,” she wrote in the caption. “The fund provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who can’t afford to pay bail while awaiting their trial.
“We want to protect and support the thousands of brave people working on the front lines of social justice, using their voices to demand AN END to the targeting and killing of Black Americans by the police. #BlackLivesMatter.”

6ix9ine shared a similar post and captioned it with, “nObOdY gOiN To WoRk wiTH HiM No mOrE. LINK IN MY BIO. GO PREORDER TROLLZ RIGHT NOW. PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM TROLLZ WILL GO TO BAILING OUT PROTESTERS.”
Evidently, a lot of people not only took issue with the word “portion” but also the fact Nicki would collaborate with someone with a reputation like 6ix9ine. In 2015, 6ix9ine entered a guilty plea for the use of a child in a sexual performance and was arrested in 2018 on racketeering charges.
Subsequently, he agreed to turn government witness in an effort to receive a lighter sentence, earning the nickname “Snitch9ine” in the process.
Then in January, Nicki’s brother Jelani Maraj was sentenced to 25 years to life after he was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child in 2017. Nicki also married convicted sex offender Kenneth Petty, which also raised a few eyebrows.
Nicki’s willingness to work with 6ix9ine again has polarized the rap community. Needless to say, the colorful duo is getting roasted on Twitter.

Nicki Minaj used the Black Girl Tragic hashtag (a hashtag used to bring awareness to Black girls that has gone missing or died) to drag Black women but want to use the #BlackLivesMatter movement to promote another pedo assisted single? The Black community is a CONVENIENCE to her. https://t.co/LTVYitEPxc
