In her Essence Festival appearance, the rapper looked to be calling out Yeezy after she omitted his verse from ‘Monster’ and replaced it with her own.
At the Essence Festival on Friday, July 1, Nicki Minaj unleashed an expletive-laden tirade on Kanye West, whom she once collaborated with.
Nicki appeared to take a shot at Ye when her DJ played a piece of Kanye’s “Monster” before jumping into the performance. “Wait a sec! However, what a beast! It’s a monster!” she cried out in horror. We don’t mess around with pranksters.
When Nicki decided to remove the song from her repertoire, it’s not apparent why she made the decision. Her performance was allegedly omitted from Hulu’s live stream of the Essence Festival in New Orleans, according to some of her admirers.
The “clown” remark, Nicki Minaj hinted in another festival footage, was directed towards artists that sound a lot like her. When she saw “all these clowns, with all these minis, with all these want to-be Nickis,” she screamed.
It’s unclear if Nicki collaborated on the entire track with Donda, or simply bits of it. She tweeted that she had deleted “Kanye’s segment” and the video of her making the “clown” joke. On the show’s Setlist.fm page, the song is also listed without any more information or explanations whatsoever.
That same day, Kanye West, who has been feuding with Cardi B, appeared on Kanye’s new song “Hot S**t” with the rapper. Rapper Yeezy just released a new song with Lil Durk, on which he raps on the recent attention focused on his family life.
Fans have speculated that Nicki is making a dig at more than just Kanye. Dissing Cardi B in March, fans misinterpreted a phrase in The Pinkprint rapper’s song “We Go Up” as a dig. According to Nicki, “You’re still ugly” despite all of the surgery she’s had.
Nicki, unlike Kanye and Cardi, hasn’t held back in recent months when it comes to discussing her emotions about other members of the hip-hop scene.
In a February interview with The Morning Hustle, Nicki revealed she wouldn’t collaborate with burgeoning rap duo City Girls because they don’t like her. As for working with someone who isn’t fond of her, “Why would I?” she asked.
