Uh oh. In the latest news in the Nicki Minaj-Iggy Azalea feud, rapper T.I. reportedly wrote lyrics for Iggy and Nicki may have found out, resulting in that epic BET Awards diss!

This Nicki Minaj, 31, and Iggy Azalea, 24, music feud just keeps getting more interesting! Nicki allegedly dissed Iggy for not writing her own songs during her acceptance speech at the BET Awards and now a new report claims rapper T.I., 33, did write lyrics for Iggy, which may have been what caused Nicki to diss her!

Iggy Azalea: Did Nicki Minaj Catch T.I. Writing Lyrics For Her?

Nicki Minaj tossed out some major shade at the BET Awards on June 29. During her acceptance speech for Best Female Hip Hop Artist, Nicki said, “But my point is, what I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”

Nicki Minaj: It Was Wrong To Diss Iggy Azalea At The BET Awards

It was implied that the diss was about Iggy, who has not solely written all of her hit songs including “Fancy.” To further add to the already interesting situation, rapper T.I. is the one who is the alleged ghostwriter on her songs, Media Take Out reports. 

An insider at the site claims that Iggy asked T.I. to help her out with writing songs. T.I. allegedly agreed after financial negotiations.

T.I. and Iggy’s reported secret deal for him to write her songs without anyone knowing may have prompted Nicki to underhandedly mock Iggy on stage.

With all these reports coming out at once, it does give more backbone to the idea that Nicki found out about T.I.’s ghostwriting and called Iggy out on it on stage at the BET Awards.

Nicki Minaj & Iggy Azalea Perform At BET Awards

Both Nicki and Iggy hit the BET Awards stage on June 29. Nicki gave a fantastic rendition of her new hit song “Pills N Potions” while Iggy performed “Fancy” and “No Mediocre” with T.I.

It was a battle of the hip hop and rap beauties at the BET Awards. Both ladies were terrific, but Nicki may have totally one-upped Iggy with her implied diss about writing her own songs.

HollywoodLifers, do you think Nicki found out about T.I. allegedly writing lyrics for Iggy? Do you think that’s what prompted her BET Awards diss? Let us know!

Lil wayne wrote quite of bit of Nicki’s songs in the past. She also style Missy Elliott and lil kim’s stile which is why they think she’s a joke. Nicki is just nowdoing own thing. For her to be more mature and experienced in the industry, instead of throwing shade, she should be encouraging Iggy. Nicki is simply jealous of the fact a pretty, caucasian woman with a nice body (which is hers) has talent and was close from taking the award. Nicki has always has a slick tongue when it came to female rappers. If it wasn’t for her fans or the hype she gets from media thanks to young money in the past, she would be nothing.

Unfortunately Nicki is one of those singers who is jealous of others. She also unfortunately, doesn’t think a Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, or anyone but a black person should be singing rap. She’s made comments in the past about that. She’s just a crazy low-life, with no self-control both physically or mentally. She beat up one of her best friends who started out with her in rap and she threatened to violently go after Mariah Carey on Idol last year. The girl is nuts.

In her song entitled, “work” she expresses how at the age of 16 she moved to Miami, Fl. and put in work to get where she is today. Iggy was hired on with the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. That move allowed her to gain great exposure. The urban contemporary artist did not make it over night.

Beyonce has not written all of her songs…Lil Wayne hasn’t either. To be honest most celebs don’t who care. Nikki couldn’t touch Beyonce with a 10 ft pole. My point is its all entertainment none of the crap they sing and write now is old school real hip hop most is a hot mess and makes no sense. Leave that 6ft blonde chick alone and let her shine

Nicki NEVER said Iggy’s name once. WTF yall talking about she mad or jealous. Most of yall can’t even rap so just stop talking. As for Iggy, taking credit for for songs she probably didn’t write, that’s just below the radar….

Its a huge deal for a RAPPER not to write their own lyrics…it’s called FRAUD…IGGY take your Australian (where’d your accent go though) trying to sound urban behind back to where you came from and sell that garbage over there…

Nicki had others write for her when she first started out. She’s a hypocrite. And sorry but you don’t own rap. As long as someone is good people are going to listen. Nicki started the whole rumor about Iggy because she is threatened and jealous so she wants to bring her down.

So what? The songs (though ghost written) are good and most of Nicki’s lyrics makes no blasted sense. Thank the Lord of good beats.

Nicki just mad because she shared the stage with Iggy…. Throwing shade was really immature of her, and it just makes her looks salty and bitter!! How would she know who’s writing they own lyrics or not… For all we know Lil Wayne could be writing her stuff and she’s lying about it!! Nicki have several seats girl!!
