Hey look, I used the word “beef” in a post title! YES! It’s on again! More blogging about diss tracks from the most unqualified point-of-view possible! Ready yourselves for awkwardness!
Foxy Brown (Remember her? I lurved “The Hot Spot.”) looked at the Remy Ma/Nicki Minaj aural disagreement (I couldn’t in good conscience type “beef” again), thought “you know, I could snatch at some relevance with this,” and composed a Remy Ma diss track called “Breaks Over.” Well, to be fair, Remy was apparently alluding to Foxy with the “ShETHER” lyric ““I kill rappers, and you good as dead, bitch/Talking shit about me to a deaf bitch.”
In addition to manicurists and her neighbors, Foxy still has some alleged issues with hearing loss, so she apparently assumed Ms. Ma was referencing her. Like Ms. Ma, Ms. Brown hasn’t any compunctions about pouring a mug of boiling hot tea over her enemies. So the “I’ll Be” raptress has gone off on Remy, up to and including a mention of a miscarriage Remy reportedly suffered. Remember the days when Xtina referring to Britney Spears’ wedding as “low-rent” seemed a harsh scandal? That was so long ago.
Foxy caught a stray on “Shether” when Remy said, “I kill rappers, and you good as dead, bitch/Talking shit about me to a deaf bitch,” so the “Ill Na Na” MC dug in the crates and pulled out the “Takeover” instrumental, a classic song Jay Z used to come at his then-rivals Nas and Mobb Deep. “Brooklyn, I’m a kill this bitch,” Foxy says as she comes on the song.
In the preview for the diss, which you can hear below, Foxy claims Remy was in protective custody while in jail, and then gets downright disrespectful by bringing up the Bronx rapper’s miscarriage: “I’m a motherfucking BK savage/And I heard about that bitch miscarriage.”
Foxy recently had a baby herself, according to Wendy Williams (via Rap-Up), so I guess birth (or the lack thereof) was on her mind? *cringe*
I’m kind of hoping every single female hip-hop artist keeps fueling the anger train and releases a diss track tearing into every other female hip-hop artist in a brutal chain! Why? Because it will inspire Missy Elliott arriving in all of her true queen of rap, amazing bangs glory to declare an end to the hostilities. She will then produce a track featuring all of these smart, beautiful, talented ladies in a paean to rap sisterhood that will usher in a glorious age of ladies not cutting each other up. Instead, they will turn on the men to destroy the patriarchy. As a man, I welcome it. Less mocking failed ass implants, more “Pussy Grabs Back!”
There’s only a preview of “Breaks Over” available so far. You can listen below.
