Let the rap battle begin! Remy Ma dropped a seven-minute diss track against Nicki Minaj on Saturday, February 25

Welcome to Gorjez ATL Women Entrepreneurial Magazine, where Gorjez ATL Women Entrepreneurial Magazine explain some stuff that’s going on in the world. Rap beefs are always of complicated origin, and the latest one to blow up the internet is between Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj, the first ladies of Terror Squad and Cash Money Records. So who’s said what and why? Let us help.

SO WHAT STARTED IT?

The feud began when Minaj, 34, released two new collaborations on Friday, February 24: Jason Derulo‘s “Swalla” and Gucci Mane‘s “Make Love.” On both songs, Minaj seemingly took aim at longtime rival Ma, 36. “Bless her heart / She throwin’ shots, but every line sucks,” she raps on “Swalla.” On “Make Love,” she adds, “I’m a yes and these bitches is a bunch of nahs / Trying to win a gunfight with a bunch of knives … To be the queen of rap, you gotta sell records / You gotta get plaques / S, plural.”

When it comes to Nicki, this one also runs back a decade. But Remy more recently claims that Nicki stole a line from her and that she had her back while Remy was in prison but has since recoiled. It’s all typical beef stuff, but it’s been roiling for most of the last year quietly. Until now.

 

Less than 24 hours later, Remy dropped Shether, a fiery diss over Nas’ infamous Ether beat. This one is … uhh … pretty explicit. There are a lot of references to people Nicki may have had sex with and people who may have ghostwritten her songs.

Minaj responded with a simple cannonball on Instagram — which she’s since deleted.

SO WHO WON?

Well, no one is going to deny the effectiveness of dropping straight facts like Nicki did with that Instagram post. But you don’t win a rap beef on social media — even if you’re Drake. Shether was hard, absolutely, but it might have been more effective if Minaj hadn’t spent her entire career standing strong while being accused of promiscuity. The ghostwriter stuff probably hurt more, but Nicki will have a chance to respond soon on the microphone. Hopefully she uses the Takeover beat.
