Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea Beefing.
It has been a while since we see two hip-hop celebrities go at each other on Twitter.
Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj and Grand Hustle femcee Iggy Azalea went at each other on Twitter this week, but thankfully it was short lived and may not make it to a diss track.
One Twitter troll went and dug up a Twitter post from Iggy Azalea from 2010.
“LMAO at Nikki saying she did the BET Awards live. Errrr. If you say so girl [sic],” Iggy Azalea wrote.
Nicki Minaj found the tweet offensive and reply directly on Twitter.
“Laughing at [expletive] you can’t even do…study dat formula…cornball….LMFAO [sic].” Nicki Minaj tweeted.
Iggy Azalea later defended her tweet with a lengthy explanation. This is what she wrote.
“Listen. I see a trend on Twitter in the last week that involves people retreatingartists old tweets. I’m talking OLD, done and dusted [expletive] ones. And while I know most artists are gonna go the silent route and ignore that it’s happening, I’m going to talk to you even though I know the people who get hype off the whole thing are immature anyhow [sic].”
“YES. I have an opinion. And NO, even when I’m a fan of someone it doesn’t mean I like EVERY THING THAT THEY do. There was once a time when I could crack jokes, talk about TV shows or whose record I hate and whose I loved etc. on Twitter.”
“I can’t do that now. In part because you guys would make life a nightmare and in part because it would just be unprofessional. But remember there was a time when my twitter was just for my friends and family to see. Just like yours probably is now. Anyhow – to me, I feel like what you guys are doing is really unfair. That’s my opinion. Right now in 2013.”
