Trey Songz Feels Nicki Minaj Disrespected Him During Twitter Spat Over Remy Ma’s “Shether”
Trey Songz isn't too happy about how Nicki Minaj came at him on Twitter last month. Nicki felt that Trigga didn't do enough to defend her honor after Remy Ma accused her of sleeping with him in her diss track "Shether."
Today (March 24), Trigga offered up his opinions on the situation during a stop by Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club after Charlamagne asked Trey if Nicki had served up an apology.
"No she hasn't, and Nicki I love you. And Nicki said she gave me six platinum, but let's keep it real, Nicki ain't had shit before 'Bottoms Up,'" Trigga explained. The Ready artist went on to explain that Nicki wasn't the star she is today when she appeared on his 2010 single, a track Nicki claimed she was responsible for making as successful as it was.
"I love you Nicki. I love you. You came at me wrong, you disrespected me, but I love you," Trey continued.
The trouble began with "Shether," the aforementioned diss track that finds Remy Ma accusing Nicki of sleeping with Trigga. Naturally, fans were quick to jump into Trey's mentions on Twitter after hearing Remy's accusation. Trey told a few light-hearted jokes about the situation before deleting the tweets.
The day after, Trigga tweeted out, “Even when you stay out of the way they will have ya name all in some shit. Wake up to new comedy everyday. Focus," seemingly trying to put the situation to rest. The thing is, Nicki wasn't so happy with how he responded.
“lol. Wut u SHOULD be saying is that it’s not true, seeing as it’s not. Real niggaz do real things […] I done gotchu 6 million plaques,” Nicki tweeted in response to one of Trigga's tweets.
You can check out the rest of Trey's interview below. Interviews on the The Breakfast Club, are almost always filled with juicy tidbits about the subject's relationship with other artists, and Trigga's interview was no different. At around the 14 minute mark, Trey mentions there was a time where Drake wanted to sign with him.
"Drake wanted to sign to me at a time when I wasn't even Trey Songz yet," Trigga explained. "At that time me and my label weren't at a place where I felt like they even believed in my potential. And you know I took Drake to many executives and a lot of people said no," he continued. Trey went on to explain that he had to fight to get their 2007 single, "Replacement Girl," played on BET, and that it was a rewarding feeling to see Drizzy become the star he is today.
At the 28:33 mark in the interview, Trey touches on a conversation he had with Nicki's ex, Meek Mill. "Me and Meek we talking and Meek like—Meek ain't like that I let her say what she said and I still kept it—and I'm just like, 'Nah, it's cool, whatever, whatever," Trigga explained before going into how his role in the early phases of Meek's career was similar to the one he played in the early parts of Drizzy's.
Trey also shot down the idea that he would team up with Meek for a Nicki diss song, saying that the reason they popped up in a picture together was because he and Meek worked in the studio together around the time of Trey's listening party for his new project, Tremaine The Album.
Seeing as Trey knows Meek and Drizzy so well, Charlamagne asked him if he'd ever help them squash their beef. Trey responded, "That ain't for me to do. I ain't no peacemaker."
Trey also talks about his current relationship with Drizzy, which sounds pretty good at the moment. The Nicki bit begins at the 22:30 mark. You can cop Trey's latest LP Tremaine The Album on iTunes now.
