Remy VS. Nicki

Hover Over Images To Hear “SHETHER” & “ANOTHER ONE”

Remy MaRemy Ma ultimately silences Nicki Minaj.  I would not be a certified product of hip hop if I did not chime in on the latest hip-hop battle. Young Money’s Nicki Minaj and Terror Squads Remy Ma are now at each other’s throats.  This has been going on behind the scenes for a minute since 2007 to be exact. Nicki Minaj never confirmed but supposedly took shots at Remy on her mixtape “Playtime Is Over in 2007.  Remy approached Minaj about her lyric ” Tell that bitch with the crown to run it like Chris Brown” Adding more fuel to the fire, there were also unconfirmed claims that the two were romantically involved at one point.  In 2008 Remy began serving an 8-year prison sentence in a Westchester woman’s facility following 2007 assault and weapons charges.  The 6-year incarceration left an open lane for Nicki Minaj to become a superstar in her own right. Nicki Minaj was the only substantial female persona during Remy’s 6-year intermission awarding her Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the 2016 Bet Awards.

Nicki Minaj pngNow that the backstory leading up to this so called battle is out of the way, we can get to the purpose of this post.  First and foremost I have never been a fan of the female rapper persona unless your M.C. Lyte, Roxanne Shante or Antoinette.  Recently I had to give Young M.A. her props as well. Other than the female artists previously mentioned, you had to be on point and pretty clever to get my attention.  With that said, No, I never could get into what Remy Ma was selling. Remy always seems like she is trying to hard to make her presence felt, her flow also needs some tightening.  On the other hand, Nicki Minaj, whether she writes her own verses or not, always had a more distinctive polished style and flow.

Everybody is sucking Remy Ma right now, she did this, she did that but only a few are asking if she really wrote her verses.  Did her husband Papoose write “Shether“? I would not be surprised if he did,  Remy is not the dopest lyricists.  Where did these magical bars come from? Perhaps Remy is just looking for a quick come up by any means necessary.  It would make sense for her to keep the momentum going with the success of the collaborative single “All The Way Up” feat. French Montana.  Remy is also heavily featured on a new collaborative album with Fat joe called Plata o Plomo, released February 17th, 2017.  Looking at all the pieces everything appears to be conveniently structured if you ask me.

In a perfect world, I would have chosen Nicki Minaj over Remy ma any day. As of this post, It’s been several days already and Nikki still has not responded to Remy’s murder bars.  At this point, we can no longer call this a battle as it’s pretty clear who’s still standing after the smoke has cleared.  It was not enough to completely expose Nicki on her unforgiving diss track “Shether“, she continues to taunt Nicki on her most recent diss track called “Another One“.  I was definitely rooting for Nicki and patiently waiting for a response but unfortunately, it never came.  Remy either finished Nicki to the point that she does not know how to respond or Nikki does not feel like Remy is enough of a threat to respond.  Either way, not a good look for an artist like Nicki Minaj.

If Nicki does finally decide to respond it would be a fantastic look for Remy.  These are two different animals on two different sides of the ring in the same arena.  Nas showed us that it’s never too late to clap back when he waited months to respond to Jay Z’s “Takeover” in 2001 with “Ether“.  Right now it’s a good play for Remy but if she’s smart she won’t put her guard down just yet.

    Interesting….. well in my opinion Nikki is not a hip hop artist and the only reason why she has been receiving recognition for that title IS because she was the only female artist in the game that put out music relevant or similar to the art of hip hop. Nikki Minaj’s music is more relevant to Pop, this she can blend well on mixed tracks, collaborating with rap artists. Nikki Minaj, thus her success and fame is not what I would call original. I mean in the industry, all artist has mimic the style of other artists at some point, but Nikki has boldly flaunted her mimicked styles of Lil-Kim, Missy Elliot just to name a few. To be a female rap artist not only do you have to have your own original style, but you have to be able to rap and free style. She doesn’t come no where close to being an MC. Remy (even before her marriage to Papoose) been free styling, and reaching for the MIC trying to succeed as an MC. She never had the chance hence her being incarcerated. Remy Ma may not be the greatest but her style is original. Can she work on her flow sure. Also let’s not forget that the reputation of today’s rap artist are usually of Street recognition this of which Oneika does not have. She has HOPPED her way through various male counterparts in the industry, which is the real reason for her HIP reputation. With that being said, this is the only thing that makes her “hip hop”
    Also, as a female MC or rap artist, there has to definitely be some sort of significance, something for the ladies of our youth to idolize. Even Beyonce’s music indicates empowering women self esteem. Not trying to degrade Nikki Minaj, but let’s just ask, what exactly does her name stand for? Young girls are listening to and idolizing her. Truthfully speaking rap and hip hop in today’s generation is lost. Talent is no longer required. These artist don’t even have a message. I am glad Remy is back and am hoping she can bring a shift in the industry for female artists along side of Young MA. I am so tired of all these weirdo techniques that sounds like garbage and looks like a show in the circus. From Botox surgery to sagging jeans with
    Name brand boxers showing….the “folks” are sad. Meanwhile our kids are watching this and it looks cool to them. Thus i was a Lil Kim fan and will say at times she needed some more clothes on, she had her own original style being the mafia princess for Bad Boy. I’m not feeling Nikki, and am team Remy for I need her to spit, keep free styling, and
    Rap some versus saying something .
