“Baddest B*tch” rapper Trina was not a happy camper when she woke up yesterday morning and found out that she wasn’t nominated for any BET Awards. Now Trina is absolutely pissed off with BET.
The Miami native wasn’t included in the “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist” despite dropping her album “Amazin'” last year.
Instead of Trina, femcees like Nicki Minaj, Diamond of Crime Mob, Cymphonique, and Lola Monroe rounded out the category. Trina wasn’t having it, so she hopped on her Twitter account and blasted BET for their nominations stub. “F*ck BET” is all she said, which is all she needed to say.
