Young M.A has the perfect solution to the Remy Ma v. Nicki Minaj beef
We caught up with the rapper-on-the-rise at SXSW 2017.
It’s been a month since Remy Ma dropped her scathing seven-minute diss track “shETHER” against Nicki Minaj. Since then, Remy’s delivered a follow-up with “Another One” and admitted she wasn’t “proud” of their beef, and Nicki’s pounced back with trio of tracks (including the direct attack “No Frauds”) and a $500,000 challenge to Remy to drop a hit in 72 hours. Remy hasn’t adhered to those rules, but did recently drop the mic while performing her original diss in Atlantic City. Got all that?
Well now, female rapper on the rise Young M.A has weighed in on her predecessors’ battle.
REVOLT TV recently caught up with the “OOOUUU” lyricist at SXSW 2017 where she first shrugged off their beef as being part of hip-hop’s competitive culture, saying:
“It’s hip-hop. That’s what it is. We done had so many beefs among the years. If it ain’t no battle, it’s kinda awkward. It’s been awhile since we had a little battle going on. It’s normal, it’s natural, it ain’t no surprise, it ain’t nothing different. It is what it is.”
However, she then admitted to hoping the two collaborate:
“I would rather them come together and do a song. I think that’d be much better, but it’s a part of hip-hop. It’s about competition. Everybody wanna be on top; everybody wanna be the king or the queen.”
And on the suggestion that her upcoming debut album be the bridge that brings the veteran rappers together, Young M.A remained open-minded, saying, “If they’re willing to do that.”
