Trick Daddy is trending on social media Tuesday after fans recorded him dissing Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Fans were not happy with the Miami rap veteran giving his “unpopular opinion” about Bey’s philanthropy and her singing skills during a discussion on the Clubhouse audio app.

“Beyoncé ain’t trying to give it back to communities. Beyoncé don’t write music and barely can sing her [damn] self,” Trick says in the clip, posted by The Neighborhood Talk. “Beyoncé can’t sing.”

The “Thug Holiday” rapper added that her husband, Jay-Z, “never won the greatest rapper alive” award.

After receiving backlash from the Beyhive and other fans on social media, Trick clarified his comments about music’s hottest power couple, which he says came after discussing ways to support local communities. 

“They won’t record that but what I said was I don’t think Beyoncé can sing and that Beyoncé is to R&B what Jay-Z is to the state of hip-hop in New York at the time when Jay-Z began considering himself as the King of hip hop, the goat of rap,” Trick says in the clip, captured by The Shade Room.

“Which is my opinion. That’s my opinion,” Trick continues. I’ve said numerous times on the radio they’re wonderful business people. Jigga made a lot of money. He got a lot of money but did I say anything disrespectful? No.”

While many continued to attack Trick Daddy in The Shade Room’s comments, he did have his defenders.  “Can’t hate on a man for his own opinion,” wrote one fan, though another said, “An opinion he should’ve kept! That career will never come back.”
