Nicki Minaj continued to talk about female writers and their impact on Hip-Hop after her statements during the BET awards were considered a slight against Iggy Azalea.
On Sunday night while accepting the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Minaj went on a tear and talked about everything from a near-death experience to other musicians in her field. She said in part, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it... No, no, no shade.” It was assumed Minaj was referring to rumors Iggy doesn't write many of her songs and instead uses ghostwriters, including producer T.I.
Minaj didn't exactly step back from her comments, writing today on Twitter, "The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us!" She then continued:
So Minaj wasn't blasting Iggy because she was her competition, but because she wants more female writers out there. For what it's worth, Azalea has responded to the headlines about a possible feud between her and Minaj on Instagram. Check it out below:
