What’s Poppington: Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj

Image

If you’ve been on any social media lately then you’ve probably heard of this beef between rappers Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj. In the game of rap, a little beef keeps things exciting. There’s always competition and claims of being the best. But in order to claim such a title one has to defend it and prove that they deserve it.

Nicki and Remy have probably had little tussles for a while now, but shit really hit the fan when Nicki seemed to take jabs at Remy on her verse in “Make Love”. In response, Remy Ma released “shETHER”, a track where she gets REEEAL personal for 7 minutes straight.

Nicki’s diss verse was a little ambiguous because she never actually name-dropped Remy, but Remy let us all know specifically who this track was for.

 

Then Remy pulled a Drake and released ANOTHER diss track, this one with a similar intro to Drake’s “Back to Back”.

Even foxy Brown jumped in.

And then today Remy Ma stated that she didn’t want to have to take it there with “shETHER” and would rather have collaborated with Nicki instead.

Nicki still seems completely unbothered though. There’s speculation on whether she’ll actually respond or not, but until she does it looks like Remy is the only one participating in the beef. Maybe since Remy practically took everything back the whole sitch is finally over.

Opinions differ on who’s side to take here. Some are upset at the lack of actual “beef”. Nicki, who claims to be the better artist, practically started the whole thing so why shy away?  On the other hand, why would Remy respond so hard but then take it all back?

Some say the whole thing is a fight over who’s the “Queen of Rap”. Minaj fans crown Nicki since she’s the more accomplished artist. Nicki has a better grasp on how to finesse the charts with bops that keep her in the limelight. Others say its Remy who has a more real, raw sense about her and kept up the spirit of Hip Hop by actually defending herself against a diss.

Personally, although I think Nicki should respond since it looks like she started the “beef”, her lack of response has Remy Ma looking like:

Of course sometime sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Of course sometime sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator

Before I found out that these two would be touring together this summer. I would have never guessed this in a million years Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj hanging together, but this is Hollywood, and this is how things are done. After rocking the Staples Center, Nicki Minaj headed to The Factory in L.A. where she was spotted having a great time at her after party . Nicki set the crowd off by debuting her new remix of Britney Spears’ “Till the World Ends” and then posed for pictures with her new tour buddy. Seeming to have had a little trouble balancing in her platform shoes, Nicki’s good friend Safaree Samuel came to her rescue and helped her down the stairs.

What’s Poppington: Who wore the Versace’s better? Ciara, Nicki Minaj, or Kandi?

Photobucket

Ciara was spotted last night at the Knicks vs. Jazz game wearing a Helmet Lang Shearling Trimmed jacket and Versace Metal Heel Boots. Both Kandi and Nicki Minaj were spotted in the same boots during two different 106 and Park appearances. Who Owned The Look? Personally my vote is going for Ciara, her career may be on the rocks…but not her shoe game 🙂
