Nicki Clarifies BET Speech; Iggy Responds


Ladies First.

Girl fight? Eh, not so much. Shortly after Iggy Azeala’s performance at the BET Awards, Nicki Minaj won the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist category. During her acceptance speech, she emphasized that she wrote her own rhymes. Although Nicki didn’t accuse anyone for using a ghostwriter, all signs pointed to Iggy. Earlier on Twitter, Nick clarified her statement.

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! I believe we’re smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I’ve been saying this for 5 YEARS. I fell in love with Lauryn Hill b/c I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound and articulated songs on the MisEducation. I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness…. Did she read minds? It’s the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy. I know she’s a writer and a producer. Women MUST aspire for more. I’ve congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that.

    SMH “The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different” Nicki knew exactly what she was doing..That bitch was trying to stunt and throw shots but got called out on hating. These back tracking, running and duckin big headed ass young money niggas be on that bitch shit.

    • Only Salute The Real

      Do you not remember last year when she was getting accused of not writing her lyrics because of Ransom?

    • Lester Nygaard

      i can’t respect people that throw punches then hide their hands. Nicki was getting her buck nasty on, mocking iggy’s dance moves and sneak-dissing at those awards.

      • bleh

        You cant respect people that throw punches and then hide their hands?…but i bet Jay-z in your top 5

    • Jonhn spelled wrong

      hungry for that beef? eat a burger bruh……..

      • Zen Abdul-Rafi

        Lame ass nigga. fuck outta here lol.

  • i don’t think it was she hating i think she just saying she writes her own shit..iggy got ghost writers for most of her songs..nicki can’t be stop quit hating.

    • Zen Abdul-Rafi

      quit hating? how am i hating? are you saying young money dont back track run and duck people cause there big headed?

  • Yacht

    Quit the bullshit… Honestly, I don’t believe she writes all her shit. We’ve seen to many alleged ” Hit Makers ” around her. No Shade. We know better.

  • Young O Safo

    straight from italy and this dude got bars for days…check it out

  • THE guest

    If you don’t write 100% of your shit then you shouldn’t be talking like this.


  • Skinr

    But she works with a bunch of writers as well. What’s the point here?

  • LOL

    take the L to the head Nicki, you got caught for your lies.

  • Damien Rome

    Nicki runs this shit… but wow all this Iggy shit makes her look whack in my eyes. Anyone that rode with her over Kim was thinking Kim might have been too entitled with this YOU GOTTA PAY ME RESPECT shit… now she’s acting the same with Iggy… cause of some fuckin articles?? You’re making Iggy bigger than she needs to be. She’s 1 hit deep, stop addressing her, you look mad.

    • BK James

      A large part of Nicki’s strategy since she popped is to attack and make others female rappers look bad to try to suppress the competition… but she says she’s all about female empowerment. I think she knows there’s girls out there with way better bars than her and she hides her attempts to stunt their growth by spouting all that quasi-feminist shit.

  • Donn

    Lol she said I be spitting metaphors and shit that make u think


  • Hiphoptv

    Lauren hill didnt write all her lyrics. Nicki def had ghostwriters on first album. Why cant there be more than one female rapper that people like. It shouldnt be either/or. Every good male rapper has 10 clones. Nicki fans sound insecure n so did nicki.

    • splifffthisdick

      Listen to 3D na’ tee.. She is real dope.

      • Lol

        Lol no she’s not

    • yasmin

      how you know?

  • seanjay40

    I know some body helped her with the monster lyrics and thats what put her on the map.She has not had anything half that dope since.

    • Realistically

      Kanye helped her.

      When she delivered her first verse, he rejected it and told her to come up with something better.

  • her looks run her career and we all know it. her attitude irritates the hell out of me because her career isn’t really much of shit imo and she has no right to always act like a diva. get over yourself because female artists like missy, da brat, lauryn hill, and tlc have sold 10x more than you without having to rely on sex as a image.

  • GreenBergs

    facts: iggy was a former web cam model, one of them grand hustle dudes or mufuckas at atlantic found online…

  • @OneManBeats

    Don’t sleep on Iggy she putting out hits. whether you like her or not. hit me on twitter for beats





  • drewsmit24

    Yall say diss i say Kanye Vs 50 Cent both these chicks will benefit from this “beef”

  • lamor

    Am from Nigeria West Africa and where am standing i think the white folks are taking over hiphop slowly but sure am guessing BET is owned by white folks now right first macmore over drake eminem all white wack rapper winning all the awards and soon iggy gon be wining soon fake accent australian hiphop is so dead am just gon go watch the 90s video mane…

    • It’s Just Music

      i should spit on you.
      Don’t ever disrespect a legend like eminem you stupid fuck.
      there’s a reason why that ‘white wack rapper’ is winning awards dick.
      I bet your favorite rapper is Gucci Mane or Wyclef Jean lmao

      instead of watching 90s videos, improve in your literacy and grammer skills before making ignorant remarks.

      • whoa wyclef is an awesome musician. he’s not a jay or 50 or em. but he raps. and he’s dope.

        • It’s Just Music

          he is a dope musician just not a dope rapper.

          • i dont mind his raps.

          • It’s Just Music

            we’ll agree to disagree lol
            the man has talent, I didn’t know why i picked his name tbh, as I really do see his music ability.

      • Dave Michaels

        fuck u and eminem. how dare you disrespect someone’s opinion. its just music right? asshole. Im only calling your dumb ass out because you have the nerve to speak on someone’s “literacy and grammer skills,” but your dumb ass cant even spell “grammar” correctly. now go back and edit it u fuckin bitch from hell. lol.

        • It’s Just Music

          oh man im so hurt :'(

  • Iggy showed strong character with that message. Having the emotional maturity and strength to ignore the negativity and to not get wrapped up taking an L at the award show is dope. That’s how people should be moving out here.

    • i strongly agree. sometimes i get so turned off by how my ladies handle situations with other women. i.e nicki with this iggy situation. and k. michelle with that elle varner situation. but whatever — just observing and taking mental notes.

  • ThaRealHater

    I dont wanna see women empowerment. I wanna see titties flappin, ass showin, cat fighting. lol.

  • The Incredible Creation

    blah blah fuckin blah… who cares?

  • poetmm .

    Nicki was throwing shots at Iggy though

  • kepping it real

    nicki pulled a niggerish move what do you expect from

  • kepping it real

    nicki pulled a niggerish move. the half asian mutt needs to STFU.

  • Guest

    nicki pulled a niggerish move. the half asian mutt needs to STFU.

  • Damien Rome

    Nicki’s got bars, but this shit petty. I respect Iggy more on character.

  • Frank Kennedy

    So let me get this straight? Nicki wrote Spaceships and super bass? And all those other “made for the radio” songs she’s had on the radio? Cuz to me they sound like manufactured hooks.

  • 3rd Coast Playaz

    Iggy was the bigger woman, but Nicki prolly still hot about that petty tweet Iggy posted about her and just can’t let it go. I’ve always said nicki found her way but paid with the power of the P.

  • Kyle Pacheco

    Get Verizon

  • Dave Michaels

    Here is some realness: Real hiphop doesnt care about either one of these broads or their songs. I have never heard the white girls voice. But yet, I know about top autority first album. E-40. Boss first album. Boss song with Spice 1. CMW music to drive by album. Bone thugs underground and first album. The rawness of the beastie boys first album. Run DMC comeback album. 50 cent’s first hit.

    Why the fuc do i need to pay attention to white people in hiphop? fuck im missing? peace to Em and Paul Wall, Bubba. They real and not marketing tools. UGK. Brotha Lynch Hung. Ball and G. Devin. Face. Everything by Face. Tech 9, not a fan but i respect his hustle. C-Bo. Master Ace. Master P and the whole no limit run. LL cool J. The blood line of NWA.

    I have my hiphop. I can go the rest of my life without new shit. kinda like our grandparents do with the blues. lol. yeah.

    sincerely yours,

    Real Hip Hop.
