Tekashi 6ix9ine continues his raucous return to hip hop after his stint in prison with the new Nicki Minaj collaboration, “Trollz.”
It’s their second song together following “Fefe,” from his 2018 album Dummy Boy. On “Trollz,” the rappers flex on their cash and cars, but also let off pointed bars seemingly directed at mud slung at 6ix9ine in the tabloids.
The rainbow-haired rapper sneers at the culture’s apparent obsession with him: “I don’t worry ’bout you n***as, please stop talking ’bout me / Always talking about me ’cause you looking for the clouty.” Later on, Minaj backs 6ix9ine up against the “snitch” label he’s been tagged with: “Talkin’ ’bout snitches when it’s snitches in your camp / Never stand alone, you always itchin’ for a stamp.”
“Trollz” is 6ix9ine’s second post-prison release following “Gooba.” Last December, the rapper was sentenced to two years in prison for crimes carried out as part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang, but was released early in April over COVID-19 concerns. He then reportedly began work on not one but two albums, putting out “Gooba” in May. The song was beaten to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 by Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s collaboration “Stuck With U,” leading 6ix9ine to cry foul play.
The accompanying video for “Trollz” takes the same colorful and cartoonish route as the “Fefe” visual. Watch 6ix9ine and Minaj’s new clip below:
