She says “the media puts words in my mouth”, but there’s no denying the shade Nicki Minaj threw at Iggy Azalea during her acceptance speech for Young Money’s ‘Best Group’ BET Award.
You’ll recall Black Barbie said, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minah wrote it… in an obvious jab on T.I.’s Great White Hope. Now, Nicki’s pulling the ‘Female Unity’ card, claiming her statement was supposed to enlighten “up and coming females” to write their own lyrics.
Peep Nicki’s BS inconsistent cover-up:
“I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us! I believe we’re smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I’ve been saying this for 5 YEARS. I fell in love with Lauryn Hill b/c I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound and articulated songs on the Miseducation. I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness…. Did she read minds? It’s the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy. I know she’s a writer and a producer.
Women MUST aspire for more. I’ve congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that.”
This bitch is cute as a button, but DUMB AS A BUNCH OF ROCKS!!
Cute as a plastic button.
YALL KNOW DAM WELL THAT BITCH AINT WRITE THIS STATEMENT SHE ISN’T SMART ENOUGH TO ARTICULATE HER WORDS THAT WELL. SHE TALKING ABOUT WRITING RHYMES BUT CANT RELEASE A STATEMENT WITHOUT A PUBLICIST PENMANSHIP
I think Nikki is smart enough to have written it. She’s smarter than she comes across.
how the f*ck do you know. show proof….clearly you hate black women
how does her above statement prove that she is dumb. Nick will be around a lot longer than iggy
I absolutely hate the song fancy and the bish that sings it, i hate Niki 2 but can tolerate.nicki 100x more than twiggy, and i dont think she was talking about her,.i dont see how what she said had anything to do with twiggy, i think she was just making a statement
Write you own songs. Why not?
When you’re a puppet, master always pulls the strings.
Sorry but Nicki lyrics are lame and no inspiration from it .
What was the point of mentioning Iggy’s name if that’s who you weren’t talking about? Who else was nominated in that category? Charli Baltimore I didn’t know she had an album out I guess Trick Trick wrote her lyrics. Come on Nicki you’ve always hate on women Azealia Banks ring a bell?
Lil Kim too. How dare she mention L Boogie in her statement.
…And pretty much every other female rapper. Back when Nicki was on the come up (No pun intended), she made comments like, once she was successful, ‘All female rappers would feed her grapes.’ Combine that with her Single White Female-style obsession, jealousy, and appropriation of Lil’ Kim, and it’s obvious she was never about whatever ‘unity’ she was spouting about. Kim may have f*cked-up her face, but her criticisms of Nicki being a childish, bipolar hater and divisive force among female rappers is very true.
Nicki is too hateful in her rhymes towards men and women. Nicki your singing is horrible. Nicki reminds me of Fiddy a bully. Iggy is too much with her hand gestures and mannuerisms trying to be black. Their both lame.
Nicki Minaj has to endure this bs because of sellouts like T.I. and Nick Young. Racist blackmen aid and abet whitewomen…ain’t s**t changed!!!
Black men can not be racist. They don’t have the power to be racist.
Liking light or white women does not make you racist, you are just a typical black woman who can’t deal. Fix your attitude and you might actually get some.
True, blacks can’t be racist. Everything else you’ve stated is nonsense.
they don’t have the power to be racist, but they still hate themselves, black women, and will quickly aid and abet white PEOPLE. she shouldn’t have used the term racist but her point was understood and accurate. Your argument is dumb as shit.
This is such garbage. It’s a cop out that some black folks use to make themselves not feel like a hypocrite. Make a white people joke like Rawcus, everybody laughs. Say anything close to that referencing a black person, the media stops, everybody wants to kill their career, here comes Jesse Jackson and Sharpton.
Prejudice or racism, play all the semantic games you want, but don’t kid yourself. Black folks are just as racist as white folks, maybe even more, because they are getting a pass due to what white folks did in the past.
I dont think Iggy is T.I.’s great white hope, but she definitely is the hope of the suits trying to steal the music from the culture. T.I. is just a blackmailed slave who sold his soul to get out of the trouble they suckered him to get into. They use him so we dont call this shit what it is.
How nice of you to absolve him of all responsibility.
How familiar too. smh
First of all, nicki is a weak opponent. How she gonna win, when she not right within?
I see what you did there, Anonymous lol
Nicki knows her time is up. The shelf life for a typical female rapper is around 3 years. Nicki has overstayed her welcome. It’s not like she’s putting out anything on the level of “Miseducation” so I don’t know why she’s bringing up Lauryn. Bitch is putting out R&B singles as if people take her seriously lmao
As for Iggy, she’s just the flavor of the month. Nothing to take serious but Nicki being the insecure bitch she is of course had to mention her. THAT is why he time is up. Not because Iggy is better, but because her slip is showing.
Exactly. Nicki kno the same way she got here is jus like iggy gimmicks n bullshit n no real talent behind it. One thing both Nicki n iggy got n common is they both fake ass hell what they dont got is lyrics n real fans like Mc Lyte Boss Lil Kim Foxy Brown Mia X Rah Digga Marvelous all hav classics u can play their cd n still b hype aint nobody gon wanna hear that shit down the line. Who bumpin any of Nicks ol shit thats y these new artist make cds every5 f*ckn minutes cuz that shit should b called moment music mos def not rap tho.
Well BOTH Nicki and Iggy have one important thing that all the true rapping females you listed don’t:
White girl fans.
@Ay damn!!!! Dropped Mic
Didnt Lauryn not give credit to writers and producers on her miseducation masterpiece with no solo followup after nearly two decades (besides that unplugged mess). To my knowledge she hasnt written for anyone else. Sorry to say but without producers shes just another jlo beyonce alicia keys. Just more pseudo conscious. Nicki should create her own lane.
Another j lo. Ha. Worst comment ever.
Where did ms hill name come from? Why attack l boogie outta nowhere. GTFOH.
Oh just saw ay comments. But still GTFOH. There is no comparison. L wrote most of her own lyrics.
exactly what I was thinking anon 21:23. a while back on here (a long while back) it was mentioned how either artists initially come out as “conscious” whether in style or lyrics to gain black followers then after that they do artistically (if u want to call it art) what they want. Whatever seems hot to black people trust is studied by others than watered down and made mainstream. After its mainstream others move in to take over genre or style etc. so they can claim they elevated it or if bold enough created it.
I do think L. Boogie could have/would have been the next big thing but for whatever reasons she was no longer interested in Hollywood/being a mainstream entertainer.
I dont agree w/ j.lo being thrown in the same league as a.keys, beyawnce. Although I would choose none of the above because none impress me. At least Beyawnce doesn’t need auto tune other than that she can’t act, can’t dance, (by dance I mean ciara not pelvic thrusts or stripper pole routines) isn’t original. A.keys at least knows some piano chords and the songs themselves aren’t bad, I just think her voice isn’t necessarily anything special.
j.ho oops I mean j.lo basically slept w/ the right people to further her career from a backup dancer to a
entertainer entirely reliant on autotuned/studio magic, exploitation of her ass for her career. I wonder if Selena hadn’t been murdered would’ve J.lo even had a career other than as a back up dancer?
“I wonder if Selena hadn’t been murdered would’ve J.lo even had a career other than as a back up dancer?”
Great point. But something like this could be said about almost everyone in the entertainment biz. Would Beyonce have the career she’s had if she didn’t start off in Destiny’s Child? Would Alicia Keys have the career she has had if she wasn’t signed by Clive Davis? Would Jay-Z have the career he had if Biggie didn’t die? And so on and so forth.
I have never listened to or watched that fake white girl rapper and I stepped onff the Nikki train right around the time she was talking about nappy headed hoes.
Agree. And the way she tried to infuse Malcolm x into her bs was the last straw.
NICKI is the great hot mess, she go spit that shade to iggy but will not spit that to lil kim who she has copied the image,clothes yet has not got the street creditability or the Grammy that she will never get, lil wayne or baby can’y buy you that as they have with the jewels, clothes, car and plastic surgery, if she gonna shade iggy,stand by it, don’t back down like a dumb bitch that you are, what a joke, worse pr campaign ever,her new cd will bomb like lady gaga, robin thicke, mariah”old vamp” carey and J-Ho
she doesn’t need to brag about writing that garbage ass music she makes…..
I believe her!!! Unfortunately our community tends to believe women can’t get aling. Not true. She made a profound statement and clarified it even further. You guys just want to see a cat fight.
