The big news this morning is that Nicki Minaj confirmed she had a track with Tekashi 6ix9ine called "TROLLZ."
The twist is that the pair are donating some of the proceeds to charity.
"A portion of the proceeds from #Trollz including merch items, will be going directly to The Bail Project Inc. The fund provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who can’t afford to pay bail while awaiting their trial. We want to protect and support the thousands of brave people working on the front lines of social justice, using their voices to demand AN END to the targeting and killing of Black Americans by the police," Nicki typed on IG
Joe Budden scoffed at the PR strategy.
“A portion of the proceeds” huh… lol— Joe Budden (@JoeBudden) June 10, 2020
"A portion of the proceeds” huh… lol," Budden quipped.
Budden has a history of antagonizing Nicki and calling her out for being on drugs.
Nicki's Barbz are ready to protect her from cynics like Joe.

But there are plenty of cynics:
Nicki Minaj is married to an alleged pedophile, she collabed with 6ix9ine when it was well known he was a r*pist and is doing it again also she keeps dragging other women in the industry, she keeps using f word to denigrate gays. She is CANCELLED and so are her disgusting fans. pic.twitter.com/z2ba0MickU— Bootz ᴛʜᴇ ᴛʀᴜᴛʜᴛᴇʟʟᴇʀ™ 💎 (@gagaerotica) June 10, 2020
Nicki really got another song with 6ix9ine. She just don’t care who she pisses off. I still to this day HATE that Nicki’s verse on Fefe is that good like she really gave that man a VERSE 😭— Ray (@_BluRay__) June 10, 2020
Nicki had all the smoke for Cardi but was completely quiet on the 6ix9ine situation, the Doja Cat situation and now..... I’m starting to think y’all queen may be a fraud.— key 🥂 (@ISLANDPVRADISE2) May 29, 2020
