After two weeks, Nicki Minaj finally wrote a response to Remy Ma’s epic diss track “ShEther”.
Released in a trio mix tape titled #3PackFromParis its singles include “Regret in Your Tears,” “Changed It,” and “No Frauds”— the pop-rap song addressing Remy. In the song that features Lil Wayne and Drake, Nicki suggests Papoose, Remy’s husband, is her ghost writer. She also talks about the gun case that sent Remy to prison and lack of album sales.
Nicki also addresses her music contract that Remy claimed was divided so badly, that she only received 35 cents per album sale. “I never signed a 360, b**ch you wild dumb,” Nicki says. “That’s why Jay [Z] ain’t clear his verse for your album.”
But as passionate as Nicki’s words were, the internet responded with far less excitement, criticizing it for being too little and too late.
On the flip side, many believe the uptempo tone of the single is great for radio, which may have been Nicki’s intention all along.
Remy has yet to respond, but this battle boils down to traditional hip-hop versus new age hip-hop— and fans seem to want the former.
