It can be agreed that Remy Ma bodied Nicki Minaj on the diss track “SHEther.”
Nicki posted her initial reactions.
If you have been under a rock the last 24 hrs, the #1 trending song on Twitter right now is a little song called “SHEther,” a major Nicki Minaj diss by Remy Ma. This week Nicki unveiled two collaborations that she is featured on one with Gucci Mane called “Make Love,” and the other called “Swalla,” with Jason Derulo. On both songs, Nicki seems to take aim at Remy Ma. Well, Remy wasted no time…actually less than 48 hrs to be exact to respond.
As a Nicki fan and supporter of Remy, I was a bit traumatized by the assassination of Nicki’s character etc. Could this be the modern day Lil Kim’ and Foxy Brown beef?
Nicki has no other options but to release nothing but venomous poison to win round 2.
