Pills n Potion rapper Nicki Minaj took home her fifth straight BET award Sunday night for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist .
Too many Nicki’s speech was a diss aimed at Iggy
You guys, this is always very, very emotional for me because this is my fifth year winning this award and I don’t take it for granted, I really don’t,” she said. “I thank God that I’ve been placed in a position to do something and represent women in a culture that is so male-driven.”
“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 told the crowd.
“And it made me realize, I don’t care what anybody got to say. I’m going to do me,” she said. “And I hope and pray that BET continues to honor authenticity.”
Her speech threw hip hop fans into overdrive. Fans assumed the rapper was throwing shade at Iggy.
Nicki took to Twitter to clear up her speech.
“I fell in love with Lauryn Hill because I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound and articulated songs on the The Miseducation [of Lauryn Hill],” she continued. “I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness. Did she read minds? It’s the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy [Elliot]. I know she’s a writer and a producer. Women must aspire for more.
“I’ve congratulated Iggy on the success of ‘Fancy,’ publicly,” she concluded. “She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should be proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up-and-coming females to do that.”
