After a long, long wait, Nicki Minaj came out guns-blazing last night, taking shots every which way at her current nemesis Remy Ma. Fans of both artists had been eagerly anticipating Nicki’s response in the ongoing beef ever since Remy dropped the diss track “Shether” in February. She gave them more to pore over than they ever could’ve imagined.
Nicki started by dropping not just one, not just two, but three different songs on Thursday night, the most notable being “No Frauds” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne. Nicki goes hard after Remy in the track, calling her out for everything from shooting her friend, to leaving her son behind when she went to jail, mimicking Drake’s own diss song “Back to Back,” and failing to lock up a feature with Jay Z. “I never signed a 360, b*tch you wild dumb / That’s why Jay ain’t clear his verse for your album.”
Needless to say, the Internet went wild about the song, offering a range of both pro-Nicki and pro-remi takes.
It didn’t end there. Nicki also took to Instagram to throw a little more salt in the wound, while offering an opportunity. “I got a countdown of my own for Sheneneh. U got 72 hours to drop a hit and I’ll give u half a million dollars if u can book ANY show or interview w/o mentioning the Queen name.”
People had a lot of feelings about that as well.
I think it’s safe to say that this feud is far from over, and that people are very tuned in to see what’s going to happen next.
