“Hot Girl Summer” And The Drama That Comes With It…. Trina’s Manager Speaks Out!

Published

on

IS IT ME, or does anyone else notice that everytime Nicki has a big feature or a song that is about to come out, there is an episode of Queen Radio, and some drama attached to it? Chun Li had her crying over Motorsport and Cardi, Megatron/BAPS had her taking shots at BET (again), and Hot Girl Summer has brought out some hurt feelings from Trina’s camp. I’m not saying it’s all her fault, but she does seem to be conveniently “affected”.

Lets start with the new single. On Friday, up and coming female rapper, Megan The Stallion, released her summer “anthem”, “Hot Girl Summer”. For those that are into the culture, you know Megan has kinda started this wave of the “Hot Girl Summer“. Why she waited to release the song in August and coin the phrase is beyond me. The song features Hip Hop icon, Nicki Minaj. One would think that with the two of these ladies on the same track, you’d get some bars and skills right? Ehh…many didn’t feel that way. You can listen for yourself, here.

Moving right along. Due to having two big female rap names on a collab, something we don’t see very often from Nicki Minaj, the song shot up the iTunes/Apple Music/Spotify charts. All seems good in the hood huh? NOT SO FAST!

Trina’s label (Rockstarr) Head A&R, Reginald Saunders had a lot to say about the matter, as he took to Instagram.

Moral of the story, he didn’t seem to appreciate the way that Nicki is promoting her feature on Megan’s song and rushing to shoot the video for the growing single, while she kinda through Trina’s feature with her to the wolves.

Of course news got back to the Barbs, and they felt the need to attack. All of this conveniently happening before Nicki went live on Queen Radio. With Nicki going live at 3PM EST, Trina’s cousin, Bobby Lytes took to his Instagram to address all the foolishness. He was really just ranting, saying a lot, but not saying much. What he did confirm, is that the video was being stalled by Nicki, as she was hard to get in touch with. He said that when she did respond, it was to ask a random question like, “How much is the radio budget for the song?, but then she would disappear again.

Nicki then went live, and for hours she ranted. Nobody really knows about what, because anybody that can sit through all that foolishness is impressive to me. I mean the girl is yelling, plays the passive aggressive role, and offers up her version of everything she is exposed for. I’m hearing she kinda glazed over it, but didn’t really dig too deep into it. It’s being said that she was trying to shoot the video years ago when it was actually recorded but there was things being stalled on Trina’s end at the time.

The real juice came, when the media guru, Funky Dineva, reached out to Reginald Saunders, and got the exclusive interview on the situation. He did confirm that there were issues with budgets for the video, but that Nicki is actually the one that stalled the video before any of the budget issues came to light. Get into the interview below.

What do I think? I can see both sides. This is one of the problems you would run into if your album is put on the back burner and feel like people should jump back to work when you finally put it out. On the flip side, would it really have killed Nicki to do the video? Even if she didn’t need it and the money wasn’t there, did Nicki REALLY need that money? Trina is about the only female rapper that has repeatedly stood by Nicki’s side since she helped usher her onto the scene with the 5 Star Chick Remix. Nicki could have done it off the strength of their friendship. But let Reginald tell it, she has been a snake behind the scene with Trina the same way she was with other females in the industry. The fact that the first feature was “leaked” and then this video was stalled, as well as the clearances. Somehow when it comes to working with men, we never hear these issues happening. So is it female unity? Or is that all a mask.

Album Review: Chris Brown releases “Breezy”

Published

By

Let me start out by saying, as a member of Team Breezy, Chris Brown simply missed his mark on revisiting his debut sound. This is something he said we could expect from this album. None the less, the album is still nothing short of fire.

23 tracks are included in the standard edition of the album, and it’s giving you nothing short of the Chris Brown experience. Some songs and subjects can come across as repetitive subject matter wise and lack depth, while others are sure fire hits.

Stand out tracks on first listen for me are, Possessive (feat. Lil Wayne & Bleu), Pitch Black, Sex Memories (feat. Ella Mai), Sleep At Night, and Til The Wheels Fall Off (feat. Lil Durk and Capella Grey).

Get into the album below:

Oktum is a Hatian born & raised producer who is truly ready to take over House Music with the release of his long awaited debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which truly has been a labor of love. Now although this is his first music release, he’s definitely not new to music. The talented composer grew up engulfed in music as he listened to his fathers music in Haiti as a celebrated musician playing guitar for the band Les Shleu Shleu. As a kid he would listen to so many different genres of music with some of his inspirations ranging from Franz Schubert, Frédéric Chopin, Bob Marley to Dr.Dre and Thievery Corporation. As a teen he was introduced to the idea of production with FL Studios but navigating   a promising career in music seemed far fetched while living in Haiti at a time when crime and kidnappings were at an all time high. Oktum would go on to move to the U.S. living in Illinois and in NYC but unfortunately his passion for music didn’t follow him as the years went on. It wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles where he truly felt like he could finally get back into music. In 2019 something clicked and he slowly but surely began to tap back into his sound which has evolved tremendously. As he continued to work on his music the world was rocked by the Corona Virus outbreak but what most would consider a setback was truly the opportunity he needed to focus on his music. Now he is finally ready to embark on this new journey with the release of his debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which features 5 hard hitting tracks which is sure to get house music lovers on the dance floor. Get into the project below which is just a taste of so much more to come.
