Veronica Vega thinks she can use the N-word because she has experienced racism. In episode 7 of Love and Hip Hop Miami‘s first season, “I’m Done” Veronica explains that Trina had her back in 2015 when she released her song “Pay Me.” In the song, Veronica uses the N-word and Trina explains it’s because she’s from Hialeah, Florida.

Veronica Vega is Cuban and Venezuelan but she explains that her great grandmother is from Africa.
