Woe to Maurice Samuel Young, otherwise known as Trick Daddy, for having the name of Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter in his mouth.
The 46-year-old rapper recently made the decision to say publicly that he did not think the 39-year-old Destiny's Child frontwoman-turned-international superstar could sing.
"Beyoncé ain't trying to give back to music, and Beyoncé don't write music," said the Miami rapper on the Clubhouse app. "Beyoncé can't sing."
"Beyoncé is to R&B what Jay-Z is to New York," he added, before implying that Shawn Corey Carter – a 21-time Grammy-winning rapper-turned-producer-turned-mogul – is only successful because desperate New Yorkers wanted to claim a mega hip-hop star after The Notorious B.I.G. died.
"New York lost Biggie and they needed a hero," said the zero-time Grammy nominee, adding that Hova has "never won the greatest rapper alive" title.
Not only was Trick Daddy's Instagram page immediately swarmed by the Beyhive dropping bee emojis on all of his posts, but Twitter also waged war against the rapper best known for the 2002 club-oriented song, Nann N---a, featuring Trina.
And guess who chimed in on the matter – Katrina Laverne Taylor herself.
"ALL day, Everyday... The Queen," she captioned a video montage of a few of Bey's jaw-dropping performances, some even featuring her hubby.
And in case her message wasn't clear, Trina added a crown emoji, a bee emoji and an orange heart emoji.
"I forgot Trick Daddy even existed but did somebody leave him in the microwave to [sic] long or sum cause ikyfl [I know you f--king lying]," tweeted one critic after the musician's comments went viral. "Like sir in 15 years no one will barley if even remember you at all worry about that instead of two people leaps and bounds more talented and successful than you."
"Trick Daddy ain't had a hit since 2004 and he got the nerve to talk about Beyoncé & Jay-Z," another upset fan chimed in. "Man if you don't sit your faceless behind down somewhere bro."
"Notice how trick daddy is only getting mentions because Beyoncé's name is in his mouth? Enjoy the fame she's giving you," added someone else, while another dissenter noted, "Beyoncé literally wrote survivor and that song is bigger than Trick Daddy's entire catalogue, but she doesn't write? Y'all gon stop mentioning Beyoncé's name for likes and shares."
Indeed, Beyoncé has written and co-written numerous chart-topping hits, including, but not limited to:
- Baby Boy
- Bills, Bills, Bills
- Crazy In Love
- Drunk In Love
- Independent Women Part 1
- Lose My Breath
- Love on Top
- Pretty Hurts
- Run the World (Girls)
- Say My Name
- Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)
Rest In Peace, Maurice Samuel Young.
