    Azealia is trying to be cool with Nicki but she’s not really credible to back what Nicki is saying

    • Caleb October 27, 2017

      She is just giving her opinion like all of us do on here everyday. Take it or leave it.

    This is a good argument topic. I’m curious to see everyone take on this.

    • Kel October 27, 2017

      My take is Nikki only complains when another one is winning. When it was she alone doing it she wasn’t complaining about these stuff. what do u say?

  3. Rosy October 27, 2017

    I know the Queen Of TMZ didn’t just include herself into the conversation! SCREAMING and CRINE! Heffa, those male rappers ABSOLUTELY took hip-hop to places it’s never been before…are you DUMB? *Remy voice* Heffa, you have never SEEN, READ or HEARD a RUMOR that your album got ANY CERTIFICATION WHATSOEVER! But yet you situate yourself beside Nicki? You ARE the biggest loose cannon the music industry has ever witnessed and Nicki, Lauryn, Latifah, Kim, Foxy, Roxanne Shante, Heather B, Salt N Pepa, Missy, Iggy, Yo-Yo, Remy, MC Lyte, Monie Love, Rah Digga, Mia X, Gangsta Boo, Bahamadia, Ms. Melodie, BO$$, The Lady Of Rage, Shawnna, The Conscious Daughters, Trina, Khia, JJ Fad, Da Brat and Left Eye had nothing to do with your lack of respect! You WISH you could walk your voodoo crackhead looking self into a barbershop or on a basketball court and get respect! But you can’t…TMZ is where your star consistently shines the brightest!

    • Yes October 27, 2017

      ?? Exactly!

    She’s absolutely right. Straight male rap fans always tryna limit or downplay female rappers and are full of it

    • Jasmine October 27, 2017

      Let’s be real. The people that buy music from female hip-hop artists are women and gays. You are mistaking men not interested in female rap music for “downplay” when it is simple disinterest.

      • Paulo October 28, 2017

        Therefore they don’t get to have a say on what female rappers do. I ain’t mistaking s*** just browse thru Twitter.

  6. Tori October 27, 2017

    This is a good argument but it DOESN’T COMPLETELY apply to Nicki! It’s like…you’ve built yourself and told everyone you was the best female to ever do it, you were the reigning queen, you were the female Wayne…but you don’t feel like you’re credited enough? Even though for years you were all we had and people were riding your coat tale for that very reason, your were at the top, didn’t make the accomplishments those who came before you did but still did great in your own right, you were the queen of the BET Awards for like 7 years straight, people literally down talked EVERY female rapper before you just to build you up and you don’t feel like you received enough credit. You were “straight man friendly” up until you went straight pop, you weren’t even hip-hop and still haven’t been since then. You downplayed your own self for sales and chart positions and failed, your lyrical content got weaker each year, your image went straight LGBT ?️‍?, and your singing…! You’ve been credited above what you deserve, female or not, queen or not. You’re not the MC you think you are. Multiple rappers and DJs have spoken about your shady BTS tricks (towards other female rappers as well), your lying on writing, your basically being fake and a media puppet so the crying b******* needs to stop, your music can’t even back up your b*******. And who cries about not being credited for being a female when your entire career has basically you walking around looking (and sounding) like a another female rapper that you try to downplay and repeatedly saying “I am the female weezy”? You’re not even crediting yourself as a female rapper!

    • October 27, 2017

      you still sticking to that lying narrative about Nicki Minaj i see, even though the facts are out there to prove y’all wrong.

      • Tori October 27, 2017

        It’s not a lie, like come on. Multiple people are saying the same thing about multiple events that don’t include other accusers, just Nick. Nobody’s been proved wrong but her fans and Stans, who act like this girl is the greatest thing to happen to hip hop when she is only the most commercial thing and had to rely on pop just to do that.

    LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OMFG Mike Lawwry Ended That Novel Banks Posted In One Sentence!! I’m SCREAMING!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nicki has been winning for years because of absence of female voice in hip hop. Truth is Remy Ma is Back. Cardi is here and Nickis music has been simply lackluster since the Pinkprint. I don’t know what happened. Maybe it was the departure of her ghostwriter , the impact and damage of Shether, the differences in the YMCMB camp . Whatever it may be Nicki has exposed her insecurities too many times through social media. When you’re great like let’s say “Beyoncé” , you let the music brag for you . There’s nothing to say . My opinion on Nicki is that she is talented and she did respark interest in femcees in the era of them be an endangered species /extinct, but what she’s suffering from is the delusion that you can gain full success and notoriety off of another persons hardwork. She wants the icon status of Lil Kim but will never get it because she cheated. She used Kim’s costumes and blueprint then turns around and disses her so the naive generation of young fans will believe she came up with these ideas on her own. karma is real.
