(AllHipHop News) Now that Nicki Minaj has come out and stated that she did not intend to slight Iggy Azalea with her much talked about speech at the BET Awards this weekend, Iggy is now addressing the issue publicly as well.

Many people suspected when the Young Money rapper offered her “when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it” line after picking up the trophy for Best Female Hip Hop Artist, she was subtly directed those words at fellow nominee Iggy Azalea.

Minaj later tweeted out a message denying she was throwing shots at the “Fancy” performer and claimed the media put words in her mouth.

Nicki’s tweets are a change of tone from earlier in her career. Her comments on female Hip Hop artists writing their own lyrics were more combative back in 2008. She rapped “How the f**k you in the game like ten years strong? Y’all b***hes still can’t write your own damn song?” during her breakout freestyle on The Come Up DVD.

Iggy also went to social media to give her response to the controversy, and she is looking to move past the entire matter too. She posted a note on Instagram and then continued her statement on Twitter.

This is my mind state about everything & the only time I’m ever going to refer to this again so go nuts guys, Enjoy it. Ps. If you squint exxxtra hard you can see tiny elves having illuminati meetings between the lines in my notes app too. ?

    The Iggy girl never answered the question though, “Do you write your own ebonic lyrics?” I am no fan of Nicki but Nicki had this chick speechless for days. Iggy didnt say one word about it until it was softened up by the Nicki camp. LMAO Does not surprise me that Nicki b!tched out and deflected, shes an industry chick, that street cred thing is out the window. Back to Starships and all that other stuff. SMH Let them kiss and make up over a million dollar scheme,LMAO Why am I here? Both of them suck major balls..

    This is really a case of Nicki talks too much then. Word from the wise…Never Ever backtrack in any way, DOUBLE DOWN or say NOTHING!!!! Have we not learned anything from the Tea Party? Now they both look stupid as hell. Now I wish Angel Haze would have won.

    This statement is a dis to Nicki and anyone who ever watched the BET Awards and they dont even know it LMAO

    “Usually I feel like the award is overlooked. I’m happy there was anticipation in regards to who’d get it & congrats to nicki for winning.”

    Shes in essence saying, “Yeah because no one cares that Nicki won it 5 times, it was overlooked until Iggy showed up.” LMAO It gets better with time. Keep on typing out your feelings…FOR THE RECORD IGGY, NO ONE ANTICIPATED WHO WOULD WIN THAT AWARD!!!!LMAO Somehow she convinced herself she is that important OR she feels entitled, choose one. The race issues run deeeeeeep.

      Angel haze, is sort of mainstream , not really though to win an award. If da brat eve and foxy brown come back then nicki will have competition. Nicki isnt jealous, she knew she would win though!

      You’re trying to hard to hate on females and create beef between them. Go lose your virginity son.

    Whites are usually exclusive.. All this over a white girl chart topping? She’s white.. Hiphop is pop music.. This generation can thank themselves for that. So who buys pop music? So why are we being so exclusive with this white chick.. Foxy never wrote a bar on any of her hits prob so what does it matter with her? Any rapper not writing their own lyrics is wack anyway.. But foxy not wack? But iggy is?

    • atlantahiphopshop

      Foxy was not nominated. Foxy did not try to rap in Crocodile Dundees voice either. Don’t pretend like you don’t know whats different about this chick. All this pretending is really getting old. SHE IS FAKING A BLACKCENT! HIP HOP WILL NOT ALLOW THIS POSER TO BE THE POSTER CHILD! This buffoonery needs to stop! What does it matter? LOL If you are black, please turn in your card. If you are white, I knew you would say that. (No response necessary)

      • Ipullcards

        Ur statement alone let’s me know u couldn’t be blacker than me in hell! Smh you straight coining it right now. If she’s wack don’t listen.. Someone’s listening and I bet it’s ur black ass requesting it on the radio.nobidy said sh1t when Lionel richie was giving a bet lifetime award? He’s captain Oreo! So stop it with her nobody says anything about Eminem.. But he’s actually the nicest EVER but we won’t say that.. We won’t be considered blk if we did smh.. Coons

      • atlantahiphopshop

        WTF is coining? Who black says anything you are saying. Man, miss me with that bullsh!t. I aint even going to take your silly ass serious.

      • ZUBU

        Bro Lionel Richie is an Oreo??? Bro you just show how young you must be. First he started the Commodores while a student at a HBCU in Alabama, married a sista Brenda Richie. Put out classic soul hits Easy, Brickhouse, 3 times a lady, etc. Bro Lionel still got his hood card. Later in his career he went to pop, country, etc. but he still a brotha…….

      • beezy

        Please explain, with particularity, what makes Lionel Richie an oreo.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        yall cats is mad that she raps like she is from the south but its cool for TI to not pronounce half of the words when he is rapping, to sound more ignorant and southern but then when you hear him speak in interviews and on his reality show he is trying to sound like Carlton Banks…. cmon man yall cant have it both ways….

      • atlantahiphopshop

        Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you…Uncle Ruckus. You answered your own statement. Now think how much SHE is mocking ignorance when she doesn’t pronounce half of HER words, that T.I. probably wrote for her. I mean she must literally copy her ghostwriter down to the dialect, that’s not rapping, that’s acting like a rapper. I mean she couldn’t even put her own spin on it?

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        Uncle Ruckus? shit dont even make sense. im not about to argue back n forth about Iggy, ill leave that for the masses of dudes that want to bitch about everything. Im not buying her album so i really dont care but Uncle Ruckus i am not, just tired of niggaz bitching about everything while continually supporting other sucka shit!

      • Victorianight12

        People forget that Slick Rick was from the UK but sounded like he was from the Bronx when he rapped, so why is it any different fro Iggy? because shes a White Woman from Australia?

      • Immortal

        Bruh I don’t know what Slick Rick you’re talking about, but that dudes accent was clear on everything he was on. Couldn’t hide that.

      • ZUBU

        Word Bro, Slcik Rick always had the British twang to his style, in his old school video “Childs Play” he even had London police “Bobbys” in the video chasing him. He always repped the UK.

      • reg joe

        In 1984 Rockwell. who is Quincy Jones own son!!! recorded an album with a British accent. He is NOT British! He is as American as…..Quincy Jones! I don’t hear the uproar or anyone bringing that back up. Why? If he can get away with it, why are folks bashing this chick for doing the same thing almost 30 years later? Riddle me that! Also, her man is LA Laker Nick Young. She isn’t as removed from the culture as you want to believe. Before that, she was with ASAP Rocky. She is ok in my book. I haven’t found anything about her to not like and Im actually not lookin…Not sure what drives others too. Jealousy?

    • Immortal

      HipHop isn’t pop music at all. Rap is though. I don’t care what color someone is, but if they can spit a solid 16, have it make sense, and not say the same crap over and over again, they’re good in my book. HipHop in it’s pure form is relegated to the ol school and most underground artists. Pop sells and makes millionaires, aren’t many millionaires in HipHop.

    “that she did not attend” – I’m hardly someone to correct someone the grammar of someone else but this is just glaring at me. The word should be “intend”.

      “I’m hardly someone to correct someone the grammar of someone else but this is just glaring at me.”


      ‘Chet happens. “that she did not attend” –

      >>Shrugz like kanye’

      • peppermintpatti

        your wrong if it was meant as “going to something” it is attend, but if it was as “planning on doing something” it is intend

      • EDOGZ818

        I agree, but the whole “I’m hardly someone to correct someone the grammar of someone else but this is just glaring at me.”

        is what fugged me up even more than the whole “correcting someone with an error” on top of putting the period outside the quotes.

    Nicki shouldn’t have won that award, she hasn’t done shit in the past year to justify her winning. BET forever taking L’s


    Just that fast Nicki Minaj becomes the #2 female artist….2 years ago no one could touch Nicki……Time waits for no one…I don’t listen to Iggy, because her music have not connected to me as yet, but Nicki girl, it’s a wrap.

    Former NFL Runningback and HOF’er Curtis Martin said: Martin knows great running backs. On his personal list, he lists Jim Brown, Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson as the best in history.
    What do you brothas think NFL Runningback GOAT’s???
    IMO two brothas missing out the gate top five for certain: OJ Simpson, Eric Dickerson


    Bottom line, if you don’t write your own lyrics, you’re an entertainer at best. Lyrics are the very thing that makes Hip-Hop the best musical expression of our current generation. If Iggy writes her own lyrics, she could have said “Hey, I write my own lyrics so Nicki wasn’t talking about me”. However, she didn’t. She tried to make light of the situation to avoid the facts. Madd Mary just tore in her ass too. Lets see what Ice Queen has to say about that.
