Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma’s five-year-old beef is back in the spotlight.
The rap rivals exchanged disses back in 2017, but they’ve refrained from speaking about each other in recent years. During her appearance on “Drink Champs” this week, Remy revisited her storied feud with Minaj.
In February 2017, Remy dropped “shETHER,” a seven-minute diss aimed at Nicki, after Nicki appeared to take subliminal shots at Remy on songs like Jason Derulo’s “Swalla” and Gucci Mane’s “Make Love.”
When asked by N.O.R.E. if she ever considered Nicki a “friend,” Remy responded, “Friend is such a strong word. We had conversations, regular conversations.”
But she admits that their beef even caught her off guard because she claims they had spoken prior and agreed not to come after each other.
“I never saw that one coming because I felt like we had a conversation because I’ve been in this predicament before, where I was the girl just coming in,” she said. “I just felt like anything I say, people are gonna say I’m talking about her, anything she say, people are gonna say she’s talking about me, so let’s make an agreement that we never talk about each other.”
According to Remy, things took a turn after she got wind of comments Nicki reportedly made about her. “It was just certain shit that transpired behind the scenes, messages that I seen, that I knew wasn’t fabricated and I was just like, ‘Nah.’”
When asked if they’re in a “good space now,” Remy said, “Not that I know of.”
Part of the “Drink Champs” interview was posted by The Shade Room, prompting a response from Nicki herself. She clarified that she and Remy have not spoken, however, the clip does not give context into the timeline.
“He must be misunderstanding what she saying to him. Did he say? ‘This is you telling her that?’” said Nicki. “For the record, I’ve never had this conversation with her or anyone.”
She then turned her attention back to her new song with Fivio Foreign, “We Go Up,” which dropped earlier today. “So y’all like that new song ‘We Go Up’ ft @fivioforeign_8fs ????” she asked.
