Nicki Minaj Threw Shade at Iggy Azalea at the BET Awards

For the 5th year in a row, Nicki Minaj won the BET Award for Best Female Hip Hop artist last night. It was a relief to Nicki who was up against Iggy Azalea, an artist who’s become a Billboard wrecking ball with her two singles.

Nicki seemed a little threatened about that because she verbally punted Iggy in the vag in her acceptance speech. Nicki threw a subtle jab at the fact Iggy is rumored to use ghostwriters as so many artists do.

“What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” she said. But she didn’t want people to take it the wrong way. “No, no, no shade, no, no, no shade.”

Except, she did a couple signature Iggy Azalea moves while claiming no shade.

I prefer how rappers threw shade in the old days. Without subtlety. They would have just gone up to the stage, took their award, said, “F**k Iggy Azalea and her weak ass s**t,” and then dropped the mic. Straight and to the point.
