Production duo Da Internz is finally setting the record straight in regards to Eric Bellinger’s disputed claims that he contributed to Nicki Minaj’s hit song “Anaconda.”
HipHollywood recently caught up with the duo who admitted that Bellinger had nothing to do with the popular track. “He didn’t write any of Nicki’s lyrics and he damn sure didn’t, he’s not a producer. So that is our brother, we love him man, but that was just a bad move,” Kosine stated.
According to them, Eric was invited to sit in as a guest during the first day of the song’s recording, he attempted to contribute to the song, but none of his ideas were used. He apparently jumped the gun by speaking to MTV before Nicki did and in their minds was totally out of place for both claiming that he helped on the project and trying to steal Nicki’s shine. “Never in a million years would I imagine that I would see and MTV interview out, before we did an interview, before Polow did and interview, and before Nicki did an interview. What are you doing? You don’t ever get in front of a star’s moment,” Kosine told us. “He’s still our friend, I still love him, I still support his career, I just think it was a bad decision to kind of run out in front of the song. And nobody can really save him.”
Earlier this year, Bellinger did a red carpet interview with MTV about helping out on the production before Nicki was even able to dish on the hot track. He claimed that he played a “Quincy Jones” type of role in producing the song and that he was brought in by Da Internz because of his “veteran ear.” This disappointed the New York rapper because she hadn’t made any statements about the song, so she took to Twitter to set the record straight.
“There are only 2 producers on #Anaconda ~ Polow Da Don & Da Internz. No one else should be out here doing interviews about it. #ThirstyAss,” Nicki tweeted.
Eric Bellinger responded by taking to Instagram with a long statement, claiming that everyone who was in the room when the song was produced knew the truth that he was a part of its creation.
During an interview with XXL, Polow Da Don, who is credited with producing “Anaconda,” revealed that he was unsure about Bellinger’s contribution to the song. “I could have a conversation with Da Internz. They are probably the best people to ask ‘cause he probably had to come in through their end if possible. Like I said, whenever we talk about the splits, his name never comes up.”
HipHollywood followed up with Da Internz and it turns out nobody is backing his claim to the song.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
