106.1 KMEL reported on Monday (June 21) that in the now viral recording of a Clubhouse chat, the Southern rapper can be heard stating his “unpopular opinion” against the 28-time Grammy-winning superstar’s overall talent.
“Beyoncé f— with her because she see money. Beyoncé ain’t trying to give back to music or nothin’. Beyoncé don’t write music and barely can sing her motherf—in’ self. Beyoncé can’t sang!” he’s heard arguing as Trick continues to validate his claims by saying his godmother is the one who gave the singer-songwriter vocal lessons throughout her decades-spanning career.
He later took shots at her husband, East Coast hip-hop heavyweight and 23-time Grammy-winning artist Jay-Z, whom he doesn’t believe should be crowned as the greatest rapper alive. “I’mma say my unpopular opinion right now: Beyoncé is to R&B what Jay-Z is to New York. That’s why they together. Jay-Z ain’t never won the greatest rapper alive. Whoever put him on a level like that?” he debated before stating New York needed a new hero after Biggie died in 1997, so the people elected Hov.
Billboard has reached out to Beyonce and Jay-Z for comment.
Trick’s frequent collaborator Trina made her stance clear when she posted an old tour video of Bey and Jay on Tuesday (June 22), writing, “ALL day, Everyday… The Queen.”
On Tuesday, Trick appeared on 99Jamz Miami, the radio station home to his and Trina’s eponymous morning show, to stand firm by his opinion. “What I said was I don’t think Beyoncé could sing and that Beyoncé is to R&B what Jay-Z is to the state of hip-hop in New York at the time that Jay-Z began considering himself as the king of hip-hop, the G.O.A.T. of rap, which is my opinion. And opinions like buttholes: Without them, you’ll be full of doo-doo,” he declared. “That’s my unpopular opinion. Who are you? How you feel? If you gotta walk around here worrying about how somebody else feel about how you feel, then you ain’t who you are. That’s my opinion.”
