Rapper Trina is speaking on a what’s been a recent hot topic, white rappers that use the n-word in their rhymes.

As previously reported, the internet was in an uproar after white femcee V-Nasty released a video where she proudly used the word to refer to herself and her friends.

Her affiliate and white girl mob member Kreayshawn has also been catching flack for the same thing.

Now in an in a new interview, Trina’s speaking on the subject and blowing it off.

According to the ‘baddest’ it’s not a big deal, just a matter of respect.

“I don’t see what the big deal about it is,” she tells BET. “It’s a matter of respect, if you’re not being disrespectful, if you’re not doing it in a racist way…I’m not really the person that care’s too much about all that.”


She also adds that there are much more important issues at hand.

“It’s so much more serious stuff going on in life. Let’s worry about voting for Barack Obama for president again. I don’t think the N-word is such a big deal, we’ve been saying it for years, decades, white, blacks, Hispanic, Jamaican, Haitian, Chinese whatever. It is what it is, we didn’t create it, we didn’t start it and we’re not going to be the last to say it. It’s going to continue on and on and on so we just need to focus on what’s important.”
