You’d think that with Nicki’s history of shutting down haters, most people would steer clear of going after her. Despite Nicki’s history of putting people in their place (looking at you, Miley), there will always be those that will keep throwing shade.
The reason that Nicki and Remy Ma are such well-matched competitors is because they’re both queens of shade. They’re good at throwing shade so subtle that it might go over people’s heads, but you just know that it got the other one exactly where it hurts.
That’s what happened when Remy Ma went after Nicki yet again, throwing the kind of shade on Instagram that only these two can dish out.
The Beef’s Backstory
Most people know that Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj are pretty much ready to go at each other’s throats with the smallest ever excuse, but some people don’t even know where the beef began.
It started off in 2007 when Nicki dropped the line, “Tell that bitch with the crown to run it like Chris Brown,” using a beat from Terror Squad’s “Yeah Yeah Yeah.”
Nicki never confirmed that this was a diss to Remy Ma, but Remy was pretty sure.
Back and Forth
The beef unfolded like all good beefs do: messily and hard to follow. After Remy Ma confronted Nicki at a release party and the two exchanged more diss tracks, Remy Ma divided the beef when she was sentenced to prison for six years. Coincidentally, this was right at the time Nicki’s career was taking off.
Of course, the minute she got out of jail, she was back to making tracks, and the feud has only escalated, as recently as lines in Nicki’s recent hit “Swalla.”
Things are looking good for Nicki; DJ Clue posted on Instagram that he’ll soon be joint hosting an event with her. Since the event is to take place in Nicki’s hometown, they’ve dubbed it “The Queen’s Homecoming.”
Of course, Remy couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a jab at Nicki.
