Rapper Trina is mourning the loss of her niece, "Baby Suga," who was shot and killed in Miami on Tuesday, July 19.

Suga and two women were shot in Miami's infamous Pork & Beans projects in Miami's Liberty City neighborhood just after midnight. The two surviving victims were transported to a hospital, but Suga was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to TMZ, Suga was in the "wrong place at the wrong time".

"The woman who was pronounced deceased on the scene was there visiting, she didn't live in that precise area," said police. "We don't know who was the intended target."

Suga is reportedly the 17-year-old daughter of Trina's sister, Laura.

Family members told WSVN that "Suga" was "excited to start her senior year" in high school.

Police were seen investigating a black Mercedes Benz SUV about a mile away from the projects. The SUV had several bullet holes in the side window and the back windshield was shattered.

Trina, 43, is best known for her appearance on fellow Miami rapper Trick Daddy's single "Nann Nigga" (1998).

Her debut album Da Baddest Bitch spawned the hit singles "Da Baddest Bitch" and "Pull Over."

Whoopi Goldberg is lending her voice to the small minority of Black people willing to challenge the left's politicizing of George Floyd's murder.

The liberal news media always stands on the side of the looters because the left has a vested interest in destroying the Black community.

The View co-host blasted looters who are taking advantage of the distraction caused by massive protests over Floyd's death while in police custody.

Goldberg, a registered Democrat, took to Instagram to voice her opinion about the looters destroying businesses owned by hard working Black people who put their life's savings into their shops and restaurants.

"People are coming out and saying, 'You know what, this is enough. Enough is enough.' Parents — moms and dads — are walking with their kids, which is another reason why, all you looters, you need to stop. Because you've destroyed too many people's dreams around the country."

Rapper Trina also voiced the frustration felt by many in the Black community who believe the protests have been hijacked by criminals who don't care about Floyd.

"Half of y'all marching are not even caring about this man," she said, adding:

"We can't bring back nobody lives that has been taken away, whether it's from the police or the hands of another civilian... You cannot pump life back into them at all. I can't bring back my little brother's life; his life was taken by the hands of a man, a black man."

Trina has been forced to apologize for her comments.

Rapper Trina has come under fire for urging Miami's Mayor to extend the curfew in an effort to keep looting "animals" off the streets.

Speaking to former rapper Trick Daddy on Miami's 99 Jamz Radio, Trina was asked for her opinion on the ongoing violent protests sweeping the U.S.

Trina, ran name Katrina Laverne Taylor, took aim at the lawless looters, who are using a tragic murder as a distraction to vandalize and steal from hard working business owners -- many of whom are Black.

The "Pull Over" rapper called on Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez to extend the city's curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. to help Miami police clear the streets.

"Keep everybody off the street, these animals off the streets, that are running around in Miami-Dade County acting like they have escaped from a zoo," she said.

"Lock them up at 5pm so the streets can be nice and clean, that's how I feel."

Trina, 45, voiced the frustration felt by many in the Black community who believe the protests have been hijacked by criminals who don't care about George Floyd, the Black Minnesota man who was killed in police custody on May 25.

She went on to explain a friend's business had been destroyed by looters and vandals and she also insisted that many of them were "fake" activists.

"Half of y'all marching are not even caring about this man," she raged, adding, "We can't bring back nobody lives that has been taken away, whether it's from the police or the hands of another civilian... You cannot pump life back into them at all. I can't bring back my little brother's life; his life was taken by the hands of a man, a black man."

The rap star's brother, Wilbrent Bain, Jr., was shot and killed in Northwest Miami-Dade in 2013.

Trina's comments upset a lot of fans and followers, who took to social media to "cancel" her.

One critic was actress and singer Masika Kalysha, who tweeted:

"U OWE ME & EVERYONE ELSE AN APPOLOGY FOR THAT S**T U DEFECATED OUT THEM BLACK A** LIPS. How u wrong but prideful? I used to look up to u! U inspired my 1st single! I am ashamed that I thought u were someone to aspire to be like [sic]."

The tweet prompted Trina to respond:

"@masikakalysha I will address the people. But u dumb a** b**ch I don't owe u s**t. U can eat a duck diet bag. [The f*ck] is wrong with u."

The former Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star fired back:

"This old a** crumb tryna race me barefoot ill-equipped outta shape & unfit. No match. Yo poor thumbs justa shakin tryin thinka some whitty to say [sic]. THE WHOLE WORLD IS DRAGGIN U... U NEED ATTENTION...! ADDRESS THE MILLIONS OF PPL U LET DOWN."

Khia Shamone Finch is not one to mess with in these social media streets. The "My Neck, My Back" rapper roasted fellow Florida rapper Trina Rockstarr during a "Gag Order Live" court session on Monday.

It all started when fans suggested Khia and Trina do a 'Versuz' battle on Instagram.

The battle craze kicked off last month between Timbaland and Swizz Beatz to provide entertainment for fans while on coronavirus lockdown.

It went so well that they tuned it into an Instagram Live series with memorable battles between singers Babyface and Teddy Riley and Erykah Badu and Jill Scott.

But Trina, 45, nixed the battle, saying Khia was not on her level. That didn't sit well with Khia, who dragged the Baddest B*tch by her edges.

Khia, 42, mentioned the unconfirmed rumor that Trina is HIV-positive, and she even invoked Trina's late mother.

I guess we all know who would come out on top in that Versuz battle.

Watch the NSFW video below.

Trick Daddy Arrested for Drug Possession

Trick Daddy, the rapper who discovered bisexual rapper Trina, was arrested on drug and weapon charges after police conducted a search of his Miramar, Florida home. The hip-hop star and convicted felon, whose real name is Maurice Young, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, possession of cocaine, and driving with a suspended license. Because of his string of prior felony convictions, the 40-year-old isn't allowed to possess guns. Trick was booked into Broward County Jail on Thursday (April 3) and and later bonded out. According to the arrest report, drug squad officers had the rapper's home under surveillance that morning and approached him as he attempted to leave in a vehicle. Officers searched the residence where they uncovered illegal substances.

Thanks to K A C, Images and U, LLC for this behind the scene outtake of Trina and Gucci Mane's URBAN INK magazine cover shoot. The issue Aug/Sept issue is slated to drop next month. The theme is "DIAMOND AND GUCCI."  Kodak Boi/

Speaking of Gucci Mane, many of my readers emailed me the link to a video of rapper Gucci Mane punching a female rapper in a nightclub. Judging from the video (which you can view after the break), you can see that the female rapper walked away without a scratch on her face.

We can't say the same about Rihanna whose bloody and battered face in a police evidence photo made her the poster girl for domestic abuse.

The video is after the break. The actions starts around the 1:55 sec. mark.

Rap Diva Trina wanted the world to know that her reunion with former boyfriend Kenyon Martin was not a ploy to help promote her new album. So she packed him off to Atlanta yesterday to sit by her side while she signed CDs at DTLR sporting goods store in Camp Creek (a suburb of Atlanta).

This is how closely Trina monitors Kenyon's every move like a hawk! My spies tell me that while Trina was signing autographs, Kenyon received a call on his iPhone. She immediately jumped up and demanded to see his phone. Once she was satisfied that the call was innocent, she resumed signing CDs.

I like rapper Trina (really I do), but this look of hers is a major FAIL. I have so many questions, I hardly know where to begin. What is she wearing? What is that on her head? Are those polka dot Flash Dance tube socks? Who is her stylist? And finally, does she thinks she looks sexy with all that failure going on?

Struggling rap artist Lil Kim celebrated her 34th or 35th birthday last night at the Mansion night club in South Miami Beach, Florida (her actual birthday is July 11).

Kim's leggy friends Trina, who also resides in South Florida, and actress LisaRaye celebrated with her. We appreciate the fact that Kim has ceased using skin lighteners and reclaimed her Nubian complexion. But the colored contacts make her look like a vampire.

BFFs La La and Trina partied the night away without their boyfriends at PURE in Atlanta last night. Supposedly, Carmelo Anthony was hurt and I don't know where Trina's man Kenyon Martin was. PURE was packed last night with many ladies taking advantage of the free before 11 admission. Other celebs in the house included my girl Ciara, Jagged Edge, various NBA players, and more.
