The rapper sounded off on Twitter Friday after gossip site Bossip drummed up a discussion on Twitter asking "#seriousquestion Why aren't there more mainstream female rappers?. Really, does a female rapper have to be top notch to make it? I see a lot of so-so male rappers in the game..."
The drama began when the site's account re-tweeted someone who wrote, "Yep, men are visual creatures they don't are if you can sing...That's why nicki had to buy an a** to blow up! #Fact."
When Nicki caught wind of it all, she made sure to respond to the chatter. "Not giving me my props doesn't stop me from being great. I am a mogul. Your hate is what made this possible. Lol. Thank uuuuuu! Mmuuaahhh!!!," she replied.
"To imply someone's ass is the reason they get on tracks and hold their own with every great MC who is still alive black ppl, do better lol." And that was just the beginning.
I've gone toe to toe w/everyone of your favorite male MC's. To undermine my skill & diversity as an MC is actually comical @ this point. 👸🏽😜— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) December 11, 2015
I saw Bossip retweeting ignorance so I figured I'd put that out there. Lol. The greats give me my respect. The great journalists as well.— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) December 11, 2015
Bossip, meanwhile, was quick to respond, tweeting Nicki that they didn't say they agreed with what they retweeted and never tried to undermine her skill.
If a male rapper was on tracks w/Wayne, Jay, Eminem, Kanye, etc going ROUND 4 ROUND he'd b hailed as a GREAT as well. Jealousy is a disease— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) December 11, 2015
Somehow our extremely general question about women rappers has turned into a very specific @NICKIMINAJ conversation. Gotta love this app...— Bossip (@Bossip) December 11, 2015
Whether it was hate or not, there's no reason for Nicki to let it faze her. The rapper not only just nabbed three Grammy nominations, but she's continuing to build her empire and just got another huge, stunning ring from her bae Meek Mill.
Why would you assume that RTs mean we agree? https://t.co/tov4x6LTqX— Bossip (@Bossip) December 11, 2015
It's safe to say she's on top of her game professionally and personally.
