Here we go again and once again look at what transpires when someone inserts themselves into a conversation that isn’t about them. I remember a few months ago when I touched on that Twar between Bardi and Bobby Foster—A female rapper being touched when a genuine conversation happens concerning the overall hip-hop community, which, funny enough concerns them.
My one wish is for a time machine to transport me back to a time when Hip-Hop was about conversations, arguments, diss tracks, songs stacked with BARS, and so on. And for it to be okay. Unfortunately, we’re living in a soft era of Hip-Hop and it blows my mind a million.
Today, Nicki Minaj addressed her issues with the Grammy association shifting her SFG smash hit to a Pop genre but somehow other female rappers’ songs also have the same feel and could pass off as pop songs. But are nominated in the Rap genre. Ridiculous right?
Nicki clarified she isn’t shading the nominated artists but is perplexed about why she is receiving this kind of treatment. Nicki Minaj has always addressed her issues with Grammys for more than a decade now. The same issues every year — she is vocal about them.
Now, she is dragged into an unnecessary one-sided beef with Latto out of the blue. A messy campaign by the “It’s Giving” rapper failed before it picked up speed.
What occurred afterward disappointed me so much that I lost respect for Latto as a human being and the “Shea butter” Twitter. Sure she probably had underlying issues with Nicki, but her actions gave desperation and loser energy. It’s almost as if Hip-Hop prior was or is a unicorn and fairyland.
As if rappers—male or female patted each other on the back. As if some female rappers didn’t almost kill each other whenever “beef” transpired just a few decades ago. I’m so exhausted by this new wave of soft female rappers. Go sit on the potty somewhere chile, clearly, it’s not your scene.
