DC rapper, Chaz French has been grinding out for the past few years gaining national attention. He released his debut mixtape back in 2014 with Happy Belated and has been gaining momentum ever since.

Nicki Minaj has resurfaced with three new tracks for the masses to hear, “No Frauds,” “Regret in Your Tears,” and “Changed It.” Initially mixed with some mixed reviews online, Nicki clearly had some issues she had to get off and not with just Remy! She had some choice statements for the seemingly bitter men in her life as some would claim and stated how loyal she was to her YMCM family.
Nicki posted this little message on her instagram page:
To hear the songs you you can stream them all on Apple Music and Tidal. They also are available for purchase on iTunes. Currently, all three songs are in the top 5 of the US iTunes singles chart.
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.
