The clap back track everyone was waiting for (and subsequently got bored waiting for, because it was taking too damn long) is finally here. Almost two weeks after Remy Ma lit a metaphorical paper bag filled with dog poop and put it on the door step of Nicki Minaj’s life, Nicki has a response to ShETHER.
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.”
It’s no accident that Remy Ma looks like a caricature of a suspicious-looking soap opera star who is being investigated by the police as the prime suspect for a mysterious death. Remy has once again released a brutal diss-track and dragged Nicki Minaj all over social media. Remy has clearly found a vengeance formula that works for her.
Over the weekend, we learned that Nicki Minaj had probably locked herself in a walk-in freezer to treat the BURN she was given by rapper and Love & Hip Hop: New York star Remy Ma. It all started after Remy felt that she was done dirty by Nicki in a verse from the song Make Love. Remy fired back with ShETHER, a 7 minute diss track. Nicki responded a couple times on Instagram, the gist of which was mostly just Nicki bragging about how her friends are more famous and how Remy Ma’s record sales are bad. They’re not done hissing at each other and now Lil’ Kim is involved.
So, I just took seven minutes of my life to listen to self-styled “queen of rap” and Love & Hip-Hop: New York star Remy Ma’s new Nicki Minaj diss track. Um, I don’t think she likes her? “ShETHER” uses the same instrumental as Nas’ diss track about Jay Z, from 2001’s “Ether.” Complex reports that it’s probably in response to Nicki’s verse on the new Gucci Mane song, “Make Love.”
About a week ago, the worst damage Nicki Minaj’s house had to watch out for was the possibility that she might turn a corner too hard and take out a load-bearing beam with her plumber’s putty ass. Something much worse happened earlier this week. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that while Nicki was away playing nice with Drake, her Los Angeles home was broke into and $200,000 worth of jewels and property were stolen. There were also multiple signs of forced entry around the house.
It sounds like the Tasmanian Devil might want to have an alibi ready, because TMZ says that Nicki’s house was torn up. The burglar or burglars knocked over items and flipped furniture all around the house. Other sources tell TMZ that the burglars also destroyed picture frames and perfume bottles, and cut up Nicki’s clothes. The sources seem to think this robbery was personal. Cutting up clothes is evil. But in this case, I’d say that burglar did Nicki a favor.
As for how the burglars knew Nicki had a house full of expensive things, well…she wasn’t exactly hiding it. Just like Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj is also guilty of shamelessly showing off her jewels on social media.
Police are reportedly looking at security camera footage from Nicki’s house. They currently don’t have any suspects. No word on whether or not Nicki’s engagement-style ring from Meek Mill was taken in the robbery. But I have a feeling it will be pretty easy to figure out who was behind it if a commercial landlord in Philadelphia reports that some guy tried to cover a tenant’s rent with a giant yellow diamond.
