6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj are joining forces once again for a new single and video, fittingly titled "TROLLZ." 👀

Off the strength of their 8x platinum, Murda Beatz-produced 2018 hit "FEFE," two of New York's most unforgiving rappers are releasing another track together this Friday, June 12.

"TROLLZ"-themed merch and a graphic of 6ix9ine and Nicki twisting animated tongues first appeared on 6ix9ine's web store Wednesday morning, and he later confirmed the upcoming collaboration with an Instagram post.

"nObOdY gOiN To WoRk wiTH HiM No mOrE," he wrote in the caption, poking fun at those who claimed that no mainstream artists would collaborate with him given his "snitch" label.

6ix9ine and Nicki also shared that a "portion of the proceeds" from the song would go toward supporting The Bail Project, a nonprofit that provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who can't afford to pay bail while awaiting 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," Nicki added in her own post.

Roughly two weeks ago, 6ix9ine challenged fellow New York rappers to donate "at least 100k" to a local charity, or else they'd be "a bum" in his eyes.

“If you a rapper from New York and you ain’t got at least 100k to give back to our city for people in need you’re a bum,” he captioned an IG clip. “God gives you a gift it’s not just for you it’s to help others in need.”

10K Projects, the label behind 6ix9ine, Trippie Redd, Iann Dior and more, recently stepped up to the plate by launching a $500,000 fund to combat racial injustice.

As for Nicki, her Barbz quickly assembled to form a social media shield against anyone questioning her decision to work with 6ix9ine, despite Nicki's assertion in a past tweet that "you don't have to defend me" and that she's "not afraid of internet trolls, blogs, artists."

She was the #1 trending topic on Twitter for much of Wednesday. Check out some highlights from the almighty Barbz and others below.
