Nicki Minaj threw some major shade at Iggy Azalea while accepting the BET Award for Best Female Rapper. Minaj, Eve, Charli Baltimore, Angel Haze and Azalea were both up for the award that had gone to Nicki the four previous years.
“What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” the New York bred rapper told the crowd. It has been long rumored that Iggy has ghostwriters helping her behind-the-scenes, including her mentor, T.I.
Realizing people like us might pick up on the diss right away, Minaj quickly tried to diffuse the situation. “No, no, no shade, no, no, no shade.”
“I hope and pray that BET continues to honor authenticity,” the rapper added though adding fuel to the fire.
Iggy is the first female rapper to challenge Minaj’s reign as the queen of hip-hop, but it appears the Australian model has a long road ahead of her before she makes a run for the throne in the eyes of BET. Now the Grammys, that’s an entirely different story and we’re predicting a sweep for Iggy when those roll around next year.
