While everyone is having a good time with this new era of music with live shows, beat battles and artist hit contests bringing unity to the industry, leave it to Florida rapper Khia to decide to ruin it all with a 20 year beef of hers. She challenged Trina to a hits battle. The immediate reaction wasn’t exactly the most favorable to Khia but as an uber confident artist, she knows how to make and keep herself relevant which likely was the purpose.

Fabolous said he didn’t think artists should be picking their opponents, but damn all of that. Let’s discuss where this beef originated. A lot of people don’t know that this 20 year beef that’s mostly been Khia roasting Trina unanswered in recent years stems from the fact that Khia says she wrote Trina’s biggest hit The Baddest B*tch and never got credit for it. And given the fact that her work went on to make Trina that much larger artist, it makes complete sense that she would be roasting her every chance she gets and Trina secretly knows it’s the truth.

“I’m from Florida…. Trina for the radios and that’s fine but it’s Khia. I don’t know NOT A ONE Trina song that shit on My Neck, My Back/K-wang/Don’t Trust No Nigga….. Whew” one person tweeted. “Man y’all sleeping on Khia’s music archive. Y’all be forgetting just about every female mc today has been sampling KHIA’s music for years over Trina. Trina May have had a longer career but Khia’s music is still being recognized in today’s music. #Khia” another wrote showing she’s got her fans.

Now as for Trina, she responded on air at her job at 99 Jamz highly upset shouting, “Everybody knows me, I’m a queen. This is called ‘royalty’ over here,” Trina said, Wednesday. “I’m not stepping off my throne to address no bum, no chicks that are beneath me and nobody that’s not worked as hard as I’ve worked for anything. So when you girls or whatever you want to be are calling my name talking ’bout you want to battle, make sure you have 10 hits. Make sure you have enough records. Make sure you’re on my level if you think you can go toe-to-toe with me because you can not.”

So will this Instagram battle happen? Probably not but we’ve got to give it to Khia for her confidence and hey.. why not? It would definitely be a must watch show. We also want to hear Trina acknowledge whether Khia wrote her biggest hit or not. That would be an even more newsworthy moment than any hits battle.
