Remy Ma’s “shETHER” Banned From Radio, Internet and Live Shows
(AllHipHop News) Remy dropped her blistering diss track towards Nicki Minaj a few weeks ago, and ignited a feud between the two emcees, which has taken an interesting twist.
“shETHER” has been pulled from SoundCloud, iTunes, Spotify, and other streaming services.
Nicki Minaj sent out a cryptic tweet stating “Nas was like NAH,” leading to some speculation that her fellow Queens MC had stepped in and helped get Remy’s track pulled off the air.
But a source told TMZ.com, that Nas was fine with the record, but Universal Music Group was not so happy.
The label, which owns Republic, where Nicki is signed through Young Money/Cash Money, had an issue with Remy using Nas’ legendary song “Ether” to make her new song.
Apparently, Remy never even attempted to seek the proper permission.
To top it all off, “shETHER” was being sold around the Internet, and easily even briefly charted on iTunes, something Remy gleefully noted shortly after her version dropped.
According to reports, not only is the song banished from the airwaves and the Internet, but Remy is not even allowed to perform the song live.
This could pave the way for a complete Nicki Minaj takeover of the airwaves, if she does indeed drop her response record on Friday, as reports are suggesting.
Interestingly, the same thing happened to Meek Mill when he attempted to reply to Nicki’s Young Money labelmate Drake, with his reply song “Wanna Know.”
Meek’s record was almost immediately taken down and banned, because he illegally used a sample from the WWE.
