Nicki Minaj sent out an interesting message at the BET Awards this weekend after winning the award for Best Female Hip-Hop artist. She said, “…when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it. No, no no shade… I hope and pray that BET continues to honor authenticity!” Her “shadeless” words seemed to be directed in Iggy Azalea’s direction. Is Nicki saying rappers like Iggy don’t write their lyrics? Is she saying Iggy is fake?
Nicki did take to Twitter kinda clear up her comment. She said,
Ok, Nicki says Iggy should be proud of her nomination, but the following Tweet reiterates her statement from the BET Awards. She feels that rappers, Iggy included, should write their own lyrics.
Whether or not there is beef to be had, we’re not sure. But who’s side are you on at this point? Nicki or Iggy? The rap world needs a woman on top (hehehe), VOTE NOW↓↓
