Nicki Minaj Diss Tweets: Rapper Says Other Labels Pay For Online Hate
To achieve her coveted status as Queen of Rap, Nicki Minaj has been through plenty of tough moments in the spotlight. She has an undeniably fiery Sagittarian personality. This often puts her at the centre of controversy, but earlier this week, the mother of one revealed during a live stream that at least some of the hate sent her way online is paid for by the record labels of her competitors. The conversation took place on Tuesday (March 7). At the time, she was chatting with Rah Ali about the industry's climate currently.
"Labels and management companies paying for viral tweets and paying for Nicki diss tweets. So now it's kind of like, if I don't remind them that we're actually here to rap, who will?" she explained. Afterward, the Trinidadian artist said she doesn't want to hear her name in the same breath as the other rappers. "Don't ever put me in the same motherf*cking sentence, you know," she ranted. "Don't use my name."
Nicki Minaj Exposes the Industry
As the audio of Minaj speaking her mind continues to make rounds, more people are sharing their opinions. "Narcissist," one Twitter user labelled the "Super Freaky Girl" before adding, "Labels are not pressed about her like she wants." Another person joked, "WHO paying??? And why ain't I get offered a check?" Someone else, still, suggested that "she needs to realize that the [general public] just don't like her."
Elsewhere in the replies, others have been pointing out that Minaj has never shied away from feuds. "She's telling her hand because that's literally what she had done to Cardi," someone speculated. "She's afraid of her karma tbh." More recently, the 40-year-old appeared to throw shade at Megan Thee Stallion during her surprise Rolling Loud appearance.
Recent Rap Beef
During Lil Wayne's set, Nicki Minaj surprised the audience with some throwback favourites like "Bed Rock," "High School," and "Truffle Butter," as well as her own solo releases. Additionally, she cracked a joke about not "f*cking with horses since Christopher Reeve," a bar from her new "Red Ruby Da Sleeze" track many are perceiving as shade towards the Houston Hottie. In videos circulating online from the festival, it sounds as though the crowd wasn't very impressed by the drama.
"Nicki Minaj tried to clock Megan Thee Stallion with that horse bar only for the crowd to stare back at her in silence," one tweet reads. "That's definitely one way to be humbled." Check it out in the video above, and read all about the Queen artist's recent beef with Latto here.
