Nick Young: Iggy Azaela Was Affected By BET Awards Backlash Caused By Nicki Minaj

(AllHipHop News) There is no NBA basketball happening outside of unbearably unwatchable Summer League games so Los Angeles Lakers’ shooting guard Nick Young is now using his time to speak out for his girlfriend. In a recent interview, Young admits that Azaela was negatively affected by the backlash she received after Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech at last month’s BET Awards.

During her acceptance speech after winning the Best Female Rapper award for the fifth straight year, Minaj remarked that  “when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it” and thanked BET for honoring authenticity. While Azaela posted on her personal Instagram account that she was “unbothered by anything that happened at the BET Awards”, her boyfriend says different to New York Daily News:

I had to deal with the aftermath of all that. When she came home and was going through her phones, hearing everybody talking trash about her. I had to be there for her.

On July 2nd, Minaj posted on her personal Twitter account that she has “congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud.”

    Nicki, did some bullshit! These women talk about opeining doors for other women but then get defensive when that same women out shines them…smh. Nicki should have showed some class and applauded Iggy on her sucess instead of that “no shade” bullshit.

    • Black Avatars

      When has Iggy outshined Nicki? Not in record sales, not in awards…Sure Iggy got a few songs on the top billboard, but outshine? Not even close.

      • Ion fk with neither of these broads but maybe Nicki felt the lil white girl on her heels, she knows that white artists will eventually outsell their darker counterparts whether it’s warranted or not. Hell look at eminem and tell me if u honestly think he is the best rapper ever, hell no not even close but guess what? He outsells our bredren by a long shot.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        yeah that’s true – nikki reacted too fast, felt threatened, jealous – even tho her career and future is Much more betta

  • diggdoug

  • Pernell Whitaker

    Good! Fake ass, fake accent, fake persona, fake lyricist.. Fake. Hip hop is long gone now, it’s pop music, but even still fakeness to this level should never be accepted. Motherfcuker only came to the States about 5 years ago but sound like she went to elementary school with Trick Daddy. Shit.

    • $18559328

      • Pernell Whitaker

      • diggdoug

        they always see the truth as hate

      • Ipullcards

        That’s what’s sad now a days. But yet everyone claims how real they are smh

      • Realist4200

        Everything he said was true. She’s an actor playing a role.

      • Ipullcards

        He’s right though..

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      not defending iggy but nicki dam near just as fake…. first calling your fans barbie and dressing like barbie dolls, rapping a british accent, ass implants and possible titties…. but i guess its cool because her skin is black…. contradictory!!!! white version of Nicki if you ask me…. nick came out and stole lil kim whole steez image wise and foxy rhyme style wise…. but i guess we all forgot!!!

      • Bulli$hPride

        Can Nikki rhyme though ?
        Ok den’ nigga !

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        so all the other fake shit is acceptable….. nah nig… fake is fake! especially in the age of everybody claiming to keep it 100

      • Danny Martin

        No she can’t rhyme.
        But you probably like “twinkle twinkle little starships” & “it’s Barbie bitch” don’t you, sista girl…
        Lmfao !!!!

    • End of discussion. ..u said it all

    • drac215

      Listen closely you can hear the rapper eve in her studies. T.I. knows the game well and hes the orchestrator of this product.

      • Bulli$hPride

        Don’t listen, boycott !

  • Two_guns_Billy

    When she become a bigger star she’s going to dump this nigga..

  • grabo2003

    Iggy shouldnt have taken it seriously. She doing good. She raps well, ‘change your life’ , ‘murda business’.

  • ccwaterbound32

    so what dude is basically saying is ol girl knew all along she was wack and was hoping nobody caught on to her yet…lmao..

  • El Dogga

    Funny thing is Nicki could’ve been talking about LIL WAYNE or even DRAKE! Iggy in her feelings because……..IT MUST BE TRUE!

  • ursocalledgod

    i don’t really listen to neither one of these broads but i will say i can stomach iggy if my daughter has it on in the whip or someone is playing it at a little function. niki naaaw foh i cant stand anything this plastic trying to be out there too hard lady gaga fashion jacking broad has ever put her voice on. shes obviously feeling a bit threatened if she was indeed throwing shade at ole girl. who knows if she was or not the media and some of yall niggaz sound like broads over here creating and debating rumors lmao foh

    • focus on you

      You sound like a broad in here talking about people you admit that you don’t even listen to, that’s what broads do.

      • ursocalledgod

        Lmao sure that do….


      same with me homie, all 3 of my daughters love Iggy, i mean they will listen to a little of Nicki too but prefer Iggy and everytime i hop in the whip thats the 1st thing their screaming “daddy put on that Iggy” lol

      • ursocalledgod

        Lol exactly

  • LaurynHernandex

    She could’ve been talking about anyon….seems like iggy giving her box up for lyrics now

  • Danny Martin

    Nicki should be explaining why S.B. is all over her writing credits or how her career has been nothing but a huge parody of Lil’ Kim. Nicki never opened doors for anyone. She ran through the doors that were opened for her and tries her hardest to close them behind her and keep them closed on other females.

    Everything Lil’ Kim said about this clone is coming to light.

    • Papi Peligro

      damn homie that was real.

    • WeakSauce

      Is it too late to applaud your statement sir? Kudos!

  • i’mreloaded!

    A hit dog will holla.

  • Papi Peligro

    Wackest beef of all time. Straight walmart beef. Got the image of beef on the cover but inside just wack.

  • Ryan Cole

    I said it before, and I’ll say it again: Minaj bragging about writing her own rhymes is like bragging about getting an F on a term paper. It’s not like she’s writing the illest rhymes we’ve heard. She made “Stupid Hoe”.

    Iggy needs to not worry about this. She’s got the complexion for the protection, as Paul Mooney would say. When you’ve got white people AND black chickenheads on your side, the sky’s the limit.

  • Insite The-Formula

    this is not beef.. its a new artist competing against an more established artist for top female emcee. and MC lyte already stated nicki is a mess of all the old school female emcees..old school legends gave her her props.. haters wont.. thats the pros an cons of being an artist… if your an artist.. ever thing you experience is going to reflect in your art work.. the good, the bad, ,the Corney, the funny, everything!!!! Its how we learn as artist!! Its how we grow!!Look at the great artist from back in the day, even before our time…dali, shake spear, biggie and PAC.etc. aint get their real recognition until their were dead..if critics know what they were talking about..they would be the artist..not the shit talkers -Insite

  • Insite The-Formula

    ps.. nick young is F*** Up for putting out Iggys personal feelings.. if she said it aint bother her.. than as her man you stick to the story. artist have to take on all the critics so you dont give them fuel to feed off of unless she decides to open up.
