Nicki Minaj and Tekashi 6ix9ine donating ‘Trollz’ merch proceeds to charity

Nicki Minaj and Tekashi 6ix9ine are once again teaming up — this time for charity.

On Wednesday, the 37-year-old rapper announced her upcoming song “Trollz” in collaboration with Tekashi, 24, and released an accompanying collection of rainbow-colored merchandise.

An undisclosed portion of all merch proceeds will go to The Bail Project, which provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who can’t afford to pay while awaiting their trial.

“We want to protect and support the thousands of brave people working on the front lines of social justice, using their voices to demand AN END to the targeting and killing of Black Americans by the police,” Minaj wrote on Instagram.

The “Trollz” merch line includes cropped puffer jackets ($80), extra-short shorts ($25) emblazoned with the track’s title and shiny jogger pants ($70) adorned with a colorful shark.

This marks the duo’s second song together, following 2018’s “Fefe,” and Tekashi’s second musical release since he left prison in May.

His first, “Gooba,” made reference to his time in prison and the fact that he snitched on his Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods crew to alleviate his own racketeering charges, with lyrics including, “Tell me how I ratted / came home to a big bag.”

Shortly after, the rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, tried to donate $200,000 to No Kid Hungry, but the nonprofit rejected his offering.

“As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values,” a rep for No Kid Hungry said.

The “Trollz” single and music video will be released on June 11 at midnight.
