After weeks of Tekashi 6ix9ine teasing the epic collab, the controversial rapper and Nicki Minaj have dropped their single “TROLLZ” along with the colorful video that follows the same formula as the previously released “GOOBA.” The visual was shot in Tekashi’s guest room, as the rapper remains on house arrest.
The duo takes shots at their haters on the bass heavy cut.
“My flow still sick / I ain’t talking a pandemic / I write my own lyrics / A lot of these bitches gimmicks”) and addresses snitches (“Talkin’ about snitches when it’s snitches in your camp”)
That line was speculated to be a dig at Meek Mill after Tekashi pointed out via IG Live that he is working with an suspected federal informant.
While the track is said to take aim at others including Usher and actress Lisa Raye, it was all for a good cause given that twenty percent of the proceeds from the records including merch will go to The Bail Project Inc., the free bail assistance program for individuals facing financial difficulties affording bail as they await 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,” Nicki explained earlier this week in an Instagram announcement.
These two appear to have a great working relationship, previously collaborating on “FEFE,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the Kanye West-assisted “MAMA,” both featured on 6ix9ine’s debut album Dummy Boy.
“TROLLZ” is 6ix9ine’s second single following his release from federal prison. His first post-prison track, “GOOBA,” debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and brought in over 300 million views on YouTube.
Will “TROLLZ” be able to dethrone “GOOBA” on YouTube? It appears that way as the video has already garnered 19 million views in less than 24 hours since its release.
