Trina Talks Performing Nicki Minaj Moment 4 Life & Their Relationship

Last year, Trina performed Nicki Minaj‘s “Moment 4 Life” song at the 2013 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards in New York City as it was a special tribute to Cash Money‘s Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams.

In a recent interview with HipHopDX, Trina spoke on performing the track at the show and how terrified she was in case she messed up any of the lyrics. However, she came over that fear as soon as she saw Nicki and Lil Wayne singing along.

You can read what Trina said about the performance, as well as her relationship with the Young Money Barbie below!

Around this time last year, you paid homage to Nicki Minaj and even performed “Moment For Life” at the 2013 BMI Awards. The reaction was pretty polarizing as some thought of it as a positive moment, while some felt it was too soon. As a supporter of Nicki going as far back as the “Dang A Lang” track from Amazin’, discuss the evolution of your relationship with her if you can.
It’s pretty good. You know I’ve known Nicki as soon as she came out, and we spoke on the phone a lot. We would always talk about things and just the whole dealing with everything that comes with the industry from the good to the bad. She was always firm, strong and always had this mindset of, “I’m just going to do everything I can to be so big. I’m going to go against the odds and the masses.” They tell her she can’t, and she’s going to do it. From where she came from to where she is now, she deserves that because she was fearless and definitely knew in her mind that she wasn’t going to stop or let anything stop her.

The BMI Awards last year was amazing. I’m signed to BMI, and it was tribute. I’m a dedicated friend and fan of the whole Cash Money family. It was one of those things where they were getting honored and Nicki was the only female getting honored. It was a thing to where you had all these guys performing for other guys and [they said], “We need you to come and represent for her.”

I was kind-of terrified because I didn’t want to mess up the words or anything. Everyone has had that “Moment For Life” where you want to celebrate whether it’s a graduation, job promotion, marriage or baby. To me, it was one of those things to where I was so nervous but once I did it and saw Nicki singing along with Wayne, it was a beautiful moment. A lot of people were up and down about it, but I’m just a solid and secure person that I can do anything I want and there’s no complex. If you show me love, I’m going to most definitely show you love. That’s exactly how that moment was.

    Fendi and Lil Kim was on the breakfast club talking about how it’s lonely at the top for nicki cuz she doesn’t fuck with female rappers. They sound stupid because damn near every female rapper from old to new fucks with nicki. Kim is bitter and fendi is just looking for a check

    Do you know how long it usually takes a DJ to mix master and tag a mixtape?

    • Danny M Says:

      Depends on how busy Drama is. I wouldn’t think it would take longer than a day to add his tags on the tape.

      I’m also pretty sure it ain’t Drama’s job to master the songs either, so they should already be done.
