The Shade: Nicki Minaj throws all the shade at Iggy Azalea During Acceptance Speech

Well, somebody said it.

Nicki Minaj sent for Iggy Azalea with the coolest of shade at the 2014 BET Awards. It’s not really a secret with the beef the two of them have going, at least on the charts. Iggy does possess the #1 and #2 singles on the charts right now. She’s the only female rapper on it, period. However with rumors that rapper T.I. helps her write her rhymes, it’s clear that Nicki does not consider her any competition…maybe. Some may read all this as jealousy toward Iggy’s success and Nicki feeling insecure. I don’t see it that way, but I can see how someone would. Just so you know though, Nicki writes her own verses as she detailed in her jab-filled acceptance speech for “Best Female Hip Hop Artist,” which she’s won 5 years in a row.

I’m working on an album coming out at the end of the year called The Pink Print. That’s not a plug, but it’s a plug. My point is, what I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it [sips tea]. And no, no, no shade.

No, no shade. No, no, no shade.

She continues her perfectly placed tirade with reference to Young Money rapper, Lil Wayne.

I used to sit in the studio with Wayne and I would literally be taking, sometimes, three or four days to write a verse, and one day he was like, ‘No! You can’t be taking all them days to write no verse! You gotta write your verse right here in the studio!’ And that’s why I love him to this day because it pushed me to push my pen. And I’m still one of the only emcees that’s out here spitting metaphors and making you think and I don’t even really care if I get my credit or if I don’t. I don’t look at myself as a female rapper because I know what I do.

Well, if that wasn’t shade, then what was it? Because I’m weak with the look she gave the camera.


If you haven’t seen the hilarity, we have it here.

Was Nicki wrong for dissing Iggy or  should Iggy clap back with a response? Share your thoughts below!
