Ever since her initial run with Slip-N-Slide Records, Trina has struggled to maintain hits. However, Trina did manage to release an album last year. At one point, she was the only female rapper releasing new material.
Last week, Trina turned heads when she posted "f*ck BET..." for the world to see on Twitter. When the nominees for the BET Awards female category, Trina's name was nowhere to be found. Because of this, she was very upset with the network.
Fellow female rappers, Diamond and Nicki Minaj have shown their support for Trina. They gave her assuring messages on Twitter. Trina has thanked them for their support and congratulated them on their own success.
Stephen Hill, the BET programming executive, recently responded to Trina's messages. He said the reason she was not nominated was because her video was not eligible for 2011. When Trina submitted her video, it was still in the 2010 period. The 2011 period began on April 1 and ends on March 30 of 2012. Trina released her video on March 12, 2011, which makes it a part of the 2010 period.
