The recent feud between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj has taken the hip-hop world by storm, igniting heated debates among fans and industry insiders alike. It all started when Megan dropped her latest single titled “Hiss” on Friday, which led to speculation about its targeted lyrics.
While Megan never mentioned any names directly, certain lines in the song fueled speculation that she might be addressing fellow rapper Drake or possibly Nicki Minaj. One particular line that caught attention was, “These Hoes don’t be mad at Megan, These Hoes mad at Megan’s Law,” a reference to the federal law requiring information about registered sex offenders to be made public. This led some to speculate that Megan was indirectly referencing Nicki Minaj due to her partner’s past legal troubles.
Nicki Minaj wasted no time in responding, taking to social media to air her grievances and launch a counterattack. She went live on Instagram, calling out Megan and even previewing a diss track aimed at her. In the track, Nicki referred to Megan as “Bigfoot” and made derogatory remarks about her deceased mother, sparking outrage among fans.
The feud between the two rappers escalated quickly, with Nicki Minaj’s fans, known as the “Barbz,” reportedly taking things too far by allegedly targeting Megan’s mother’s grave. While there’s no confirmation of these events, it underscores the toxic nature of online fan culture and the lengths some individuals will go to defend their favorite artists.
Observers noted that tensions between Megan and Nicki had been simmering for some time, with speculation arising after Megan collaborated with Cardi B on the hit song “WAP.” Prior to that, Megan and Nicki seemed to be on good terms, but something evidently soured their relationship behind the scenes.
The feud reignited discussions about the role of gender in rap beefs, with some arguing that women in the industry face unfair scrutiny and sexist double standards. However, others pointed out that rap beefs should be fair game regardless of gender and that the focus should be on the quality of the music rather than gender politics.
As the feud continues to unfold, fans and critics alike are eagerly awaiting Megan’s response. Nicki has hinted that she has more ammunition in her arsenal, but some caution against escalating the situation further. History has shown that prolonged rap beefs rarely end well, often resulting in reputational damage for both parties involved.
In the meantime, industry insiders are divided over the quality of Nicki’s diss track, with some criticizing its production and others praising her for standing her ground. Regardless of where one stands on the feud, it’s clear that tensions are running high in the world of hip-hop, and only time will tell how it all plays out.
