Nicki Minaj Dissin’ Kanye West? Hmmm…
Nicki, Nicki, Nicki!
The baddest life-sized Barbie is queening on the cover of Marie Claire and she’s keeping up her reputation as a slick talking emcee who’s not afraid to get gritty off the mic, too.
In her latest interview, Minaj spoke about her disappointment when it comes to Black men dating non-Black women once they reach a certain level of wealth and status. And interestingly enough, she uses her “Monster” counterpart, Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” as an example.
“I’m so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race. It wasn’t funny when Kanye said [on ‘Gold Digger’], ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your ass for a white girl’ – and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn’t funny when he said it; it was the f—ing truth.”
Welp, as Jay said, and it became a trending tag shortly after, #FactsOnly.
Now, will this cause a riff between the two lyrical giants? We might see a rant some time down the line, but no love lost. They’re all crew, and her words weren’t so much a jab at Yeezy but rather Nicki using the most obvious example to further validate her statement.
Also during her conversation with Marie Claire, Nicki discusses the double standard Black women face when it comes to showing off their bodies, and she also sends a message to young ladies to focus on achieving their goals and not feeling they need to have a man to feel whole.
