Rapper Remy Ma launched a scathing attack on fellow female rapper Nicki Minaj in the form of a 7 minute diss track. The All The Way Up hitmaker dropped shETHER, a vicious track using Nas’ classic Ether beat, that he used to put Jay Z in his place back in the day.
It is still quite vague what it is that triggered the clap from Remy Ma, with some reports indicating that it was a reaction to Nicki Minaj’s verse on Gucci Mane’s “Make Love”, that had been released barely 24 hours prior.
Over the course of the diss track, Remy Ma explicitly delves into Minaj’s breakup with Meek Mill, suggests Minaj hooked up with Trey Songz (who denied said accusations following a brief Twitter spat with Minaj), Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane and many more, implies that the rapper employs a ghostwriter and even calls out on her brother’s legal troubles; Minaj’s brother Jelani Maraj will face trial on charges of raping a 12-year-old girl. If convicted, Maraj faces life imprisonment. Remy even references Minaj’s previous feuds with Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey, and Miley Cyrus.
It appears that this beef has been long overdue and has got the internet buzzing, fans and fellow artists alike. The likes of rapper Lil Kim have proceeded to take sides, which really doesn’t come as a surprise considering she’s been feuding with Nicki for the longest time.
Here are some of the interesting thoughts and comments on the on-going rivalry:
