Please stop pitting Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj against each other. At least that’s the tune Remy is spitting now. Leading up to the release of her latest single, “Wake Me Up,” featuring Lil Kim, there were a number of reports suggesting the two femcees had conspired to take down Minaj on their new track. But during Remy’s latest interview on The Breakfast Club on Nov. 9, the rapper may have put the rumors to rest once and for all.
“I’m so over that. I’m passed that. I’m in a good space,” Remy said of her notorious feud with Nicki Minaj earlier this year. “Everything happens for a reason. What I’m doing right now, is what the record is. It’s just a dope record.”
While Lil Kim has also shared a beef with the “Rake It Up” artist in the past, Remy asserted the two simply came together to make a fire song. Rem also spoke highly of Kim’s legacy in the rap game. “I think Kim is an icon. I think she should definitely way more respect,” she added. “To me, she’s like the Madonna of the whole female rap. I can’t think of no chick in rap that can’t say at some point they weren’t Kim. And I just thought it was dope to have her on the record.”
Even after Remy set the record straight, DJ Envy attempted to throw Nicki’s name back into the discussion about rap competition. But the New York native shot it down quickly. “I don’t sit around and focus on females. When I make music and when I write, I make music because I just want to be great over all,” Remy explained. “I tell people all the time, there’s this one record that I got on my album that I can’t wait 'til it comes out so I can so I can go see Jay-Z and be like, ‘What did you think about that? Kinda nice right?’ I want the Kendricks and the J.Coles and the Ems to go, ‘Yo, shorty’s nice.’ I don’t sit here worrying about what just one particular sex is doing.”
So, that’s that. Check out the full Breakfast Club interview below.
