Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech at the BET Awarda Sunday ( June 29) came across as low key disses toward Iggy Azalea.
Minaj took to Twitter (July 2) and said that many are taking her speech, which included her saying, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” as a jab toward Azalea, who has been rumored to use a ghostwriter. However, the YMCMB rapper says this is not the case and explained more via Twitter.
“The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us!” Nicki Minaj wrote on Twitter today.
In another Tweet, Minaj spoke on women’s capability at being lyricists. “I believe we’re smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I’ve been saying this for 5 YEARS.”
Nicki Minaj also congratulated Azalea on the success of her double platinum single, “Fancy.”
