In a photo posted to Nicki Minaj's Instagram page, it appears that old friends have made new acquaintances.
If you'll venture down memory lane with us to the sixth season of Love & Hip Hop: New York, we saw an old friendship between Remy Ma and Rashidah Ali revived after Remy returned home from prison. The pair had their ups and down —predicated on Remy's growing friendship with Rah's enemy, Yandy Smith— but they appeared to work things out by the season finale.
Well, it appears that Remy and Rah never went back to normal after the season ended, and subsequently haven't talked in years. Fast forward to this week when Ali was spotted on Nicki Minaj's Instagram page.
"S/O to my good good sis @rah_ali for launching her brand new company," the rapper says. "@the_stiletto_group like a BOSS @candiworld bad btchs link up," shouting out Rah's new shoe consulting business.

In response to the post, fans of all three ladies had opinions on what was seen as a slight to Remy, because of her contentious relationship with Nicki.
In response to the chatter, Rah wrote a four paragraph letter explaining the photo and her relationship with both women.
"It's important for people to know that the deterioration of my friendship with Remy Ma took place during season 6 of Love and Hip Hop. I want people to know that what they watched unfold was in no way staged or scripted and that I truly felt betrayed by Remy at the time," she says about her falling out with the "ShEther" rapper.
"With that being said, I am not working with Nicki out of spite or payback. Nicki and I were friendly long before the rap beef unfolded with Remy."
Adding, "I consider myself to be a great person who possesses a rare trait of loyalty."
