Like it or not, another Tekashi 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj collaboration is on the way. On Wednesday (June 10), the official single art for “TROLLZ” appeared on Nicki’s official website along with the release date, several merch bundles and “TROLLZ” clothing.
The song marks the follow-up to 6ix9ine’s comeback song “GOOBA,” which he released last month. It’s also the first collaboration between the two polarizing rappers since 2018’s “FEFE.”
Not long after the video for the track dropped, 6ix9ine and his ex-manager Kifano “Shotti” were arrested on racketeering charges. He almost immediately agreed to cooperate with the feds in an effort to take down the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and receive a lighter sentence. In the process, he earned the nickname “Snitch9ine.”
After a dramatic trial and anticlimactic sentencing, 6ix9ine was granted a compassionate release from prison in April after a judge deemed his asthmatic condition made him more susceptible to the coronavirus.
Since then, it’s been business as usual for the 24-year-old — trolling, trolling and more trolling. But despite his social media antics, “GOOBA” performed extremely well. It broke a YouTube record for the most views in a 24-hours period and currently sits at over 315 million views. The song debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“TROLLZ” is expected to arrive on Friday (June 12).
