Although it seems like Nicki MInaj has been all about promoting her music and upcoming projects, it looks like the star took some time to throw shade at two rappers, Remy Ma and Cadi B, who happen to be on the VH1 series “Love & Hip Hop: New York.”
On Friday, Minaj took to Instagram to announce the release of Katy Perry’s new song “Swish Swish” which she is featured on. The “Regret in Your Tears” rapper shared a photo of the artwork for the single which featured a hand holding a receipt to an establishment called “Karma Coffee & Tea.”
“Silly rap beefs just get me more checks,” Minaj raps in her verse. The rapper seems to be referring to her feud with Remy Ma which was reignited in February when the Bronx rapper released “shETHTER.”
Although Minaj took about a week to respond to Remy’s diss record when she finally released her single “No Frauds,” it shot to the top of charts around the world. On the other hand, Remy Ma’s song was pulled from radio because she didn’t ask for permission to use the beat owned by Universal.
“Cause I make M’s, they get much less,” Minaj goes on to rap in “Swish Swish.” The rapper has continuously called Remy Ma out for not being able to sell records and has insinuated that her music career is over.
In March, Minaj challenged Remy Ma to book a show without mentioning her name. “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,” Minaj wrote on an Instagram post.
“Here @ Young Money, we don’t do diss records, we drop HIT RECORDS. Queens don’t move on peasant time,” the star continued. However, Remy Ma did not take Minaj up on her offer.
Moving along to Cardi B, Minaj made a reference to the rapper’s boyfriend, Offset, who is in the music group Migos.
“My life is a movie, I’m never off set. Me & my aMIGOS No not OFFSET swish swish awww I got them upset! but my shooters’ll make [‘em] dance like dubstep! Swish swish awww my haters iz OBSESSED!” Minaj wrote in her Instagram post, quoting the lyrics to “Swish.”
Minaj and Cardi B’s issues with one another began in March when the Young Money rapper publicly liked a comment calling Cardi B’s bars dumb following the release of the rapper’s short freestyle track.
On Perry’s behalf, it seems like she may be taking a dig at Taylor Swift in her new song. “A tiger / Don’t lose no sleep / Don’t need opinions / From a shellfish or a sheep / Don’t you come for me / No, not today / You’re calculated / I got your number /‘Cause you’re a joker,” Perry sings.
In 2015, the songstress confirmed that a tweet she shared the previous year was about Swift. “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing,” Perry tweeted following a Rolling Stone interview in which Swift revealed that another artist tried to sabotage her tour.
Remy Ma, Cardi B and Swift have yet to acknowledge Perry and Minaj’s song.
