Nicki Minaj At BETs Vs. Iggy Azalea: Dissed Her For Not Writing Her Songs?

Nicki Minaj is known for being brutally honest and she proved that at the BET Awards on June 29. The singer was awarded the Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the show. When she made her acceptance speech, Nicki dissed artists who don’t write their own songs.

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

Upon that bold statement, everyone believed she was talking directly to “Fancy” rapper Iggy Azalea, who has not written all of her own songs. 

Nicki gave an emotional speech about her career, but had to include some shade.

“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.”

She immediately tried to retract what she said, “No, no, no shade. No, no, no shade.” However, the diss had been made.

What makes the diss seem like it’s aimed at Iggy is that Iggy doesn’t write all of her songs. She’s listed as a co-writer on her hit single “Work” and on Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” but not on her other smash hits like “Fancy” and “Change Your Life.”
