Nicki Minaj Addresses Purported Iggy Azalea Beef

"The media puts words in my mouth all the time," Nicki Minaj says, "and this is no different."

Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech and her dancing to Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” at the BET Awards Sunday (June 29) were deemed as disses toward Iggy Azalea. 

The YMCMB rapper said on Twitter today (July 2) that others 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 slight toward Azalea, who has been rumored to use a ghostwriter, according to a Pitchfork story.

"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, the Queens, New York rapper says that women can be capable 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."

In other tweets, Nicki Minaj also discussed her affinity for Lauryn Hill and says that she congratulated Azalea on the success of her double platinum single, "Fancy."

    I can't wait for this bitch to annoy me endlessly with her delusional self-righteousness after I nut in her with no condom and give her a baby. She'll prolly be on my case by the 2nd month of pregnancy and blame it on hormones instead of just her personality defects. Dumb slut.

    The reason why Iggy is what she is, is because she is white and she is being supported by white and black, just like Eminem. The great white hype. Society wants white people to steal the culture of hip hop just like they stole everything else black people invented. 50 years from now, the media will be saying hip hop started in Idaho instead of the Bronx. And those living will ultimately believe the hype.

      How is Nicki trying to be like Iggy? You ever heard of Lil' Kim or Foxy Brown or Eve? What is your definition of fake bruh? Hip Hop is a totally different art form than that pop bullshit. I'm happy Nicki got someone to write that pop music bs. She is too talented to degrade her skills by writing such watered down music. I can't front Young Money is eating like they are at a buffet...

      Eminem is blacker then you guys, FOR REAL! Don't put him in the same mix with other white performers. Yeah, I agree that guys like Macklemore, Iggy, Drake, and Mac Miller are all taking over hiphop with that pop hiphop shit but you have dope rappers that are not pop. Eminem obviously, but also Action Bronson. The problem isn't iggy, she's good and only doing her thing which is making music but if you wanted to keep it real. Nicki was trying to be like her. Nicki would put on blonde wigs, colored contacts, hired ghost writers to write her hit pop records. So she's a huge part of the problem with hiphop. She's fake like most of them new cats. For real, her whole team is mad fake brother. Wayne, Drake, all them cats. You have to see that...

      Man, was thinking about the same exact thing relating to how the future will perceive Hip Hop! I feel like those of European ancestry will try to claim that Hip Hop originated from whites.

    Coming from a bitch with fake hair, fake nails, fake eye lashes, fake tits, and a fake ass.. She's been trying to be Barbie for so long and now there's a new rap chick who Actually looks like a Barbie. She can say whatever she wants but actions speak louder than words and it's obvious she feels threatened that there's some new competition.
