3 Reasons Remy Ma Was Victorious in Her Hip-Hop Beef With Nicki Minaj

Last week, the hip-hop world was shook by rapper, Remy Ma's lengthy dis record ShEther, which exposed and exterminated much of Nicki Minaj's dirty laundry and self-acclaimed literary genius. From jabs taken at Nicki's fake butt to her support for her convicted child rapist brother, Remy's 7- minute dis record dismantled a huge part of the hip-hop empress' thrown. Several other MCs have commented on the record stating that it is not difficult to respect any of Nicki's work. Whether you are one of Nicki's barbs or a supporter of the Rem boss, there are clearly three reasons why Remy Ma came out on top of this rap beef.

1. Nicki Started It

For many people not plugged into the rap industry, this beef initially appeared to be a cry for attention from Remy Ma. There was much hear-say on who said what first and why the dis record came out with such a powerful force. But Remy Ma's appearance on the Wendy Williams show on March 3rd cleared up much of the confusion and rumors. Watching the interview, I personally felt Remy Ma appeared very poised and transparent. She was recently released from prison after serving six years for being connected to with a shooting where she was implicated in assault, weapons, possession, and coercion (Google search). Remy is focused on her children and expanding her career. She doesn't have time for the foolishness.

2. The Truth Hurts

It's one thing to spit metaphors and other literary devices to demean someone. It's another thing to expose their dirty dealings on record which made a carbon imprint in the music world. Everyone with a pair of working eyeballs can see that Nicki Minaj has had work done to her body, particularly her backside. Last week, Remy Ma posted an old, low-budget sexy photo of Nicki on Instagram. And it is sadly very obvious her buns weren't always like the big juicy ones on the cover of her single, Anaconda. Further, the deets on Nicki's record deals was spilled revealing that she does not receive as much money as she claims. O, and her brother's child molestation conviction? Ouch.

3. She Squashed It

A little more than a week later, Remy Ma told media outlets that she does not regret the dis record, but is not particularly proud of it. She admits that she feels bad about the record going so viral because all it did was tear another woman down. Remy also admitted that she and Nicki could have potentially made just as big of an impact by collaborating and making good music together.

It's always unfortunate when women do not support one another and instead attack each other. This world has so much space and opportunity for everyone to shine in some way. Yes, hip-hop culture has an embedded competitive nature and that can get pretty nasty, but it's important to take away lessons from these beefs. They teach us a thing or two about humility and graciousness. Stay humble people.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
