6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj’s “Trollz” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 before breaking records with the biggest fall for a #1 in Hot 100 history when it dropped to #34 in its second week earlier this year.
In a new interview to promote his new album, 6ix9ine says “TROLLZ” short-lived chart success had nothing to do with Nicki Minaj. He also pointed out that Nicki has never had a solo #1 hit.
While speaking with Billboard, Tekashi was questioned for calling out other artists for using Drake to get a hit. But the interviewer pointed out that he had an assist from Nicki on “TROLLZ,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, 6ix9ine seemed to not want to give Nicki her proper credit.
“Nicki’s my sister. I love that girl to death,” he said before asking, “When has Nicki ever had a No. 1 till this date?”
The reporter informed him that “Say So,” Nicki’s collaboration with Doja Cat, hit No. 1 prior to “TROLLZ.”
Tekashi reiterated, “I love Nicki. That’s my sister. I love her to death,” but indicated that Nicki has never had a No. 1 single of her own on the Hot 100. “Give me a Nicki single that’s been No. 1. Her record,” he said before declaring that “TROLLZ” was his single.
“Let’s not shy off. That’s my record,” he added.
The Barbz won’t be happy about this one.
