February 25th, 2017 that is the day Remy Ma killed no...slaughtered Nicki Minaj career. Dropping Shether on just another Saturday where everyone was going about their day until they heard the diss track. Remy holds nothing back in her attack on Nicki, as of this writing Nicki has made small responses on social media. No song is out but honestly anything she put's out won't even be a adequate clap back.
While the beef has experienced subliminal shots at times, Shether took it to a whole nother level. So I pose the question right now where would this beef fit in when it comes to the greatest rap beefs? Tupac vs. Biggie while initially great as just lyrical beef landed in tragedy and left a black eye on rap for a few years. Lil Kim and Foxy they've been beefing for years but nothing they've ever produced came close to this type of heat. Jadakiss and Beanie Siegel had a beef in the early 2000s that was honestly two dope lyricist sparring and nothing more. Meek Mill and Drake had a beef and while people say Meek was the better lyricist, Drake shut him down with "Charged up" and "Back 2 Back" letting the world know a singing nigga can murder niggas as well. Meek tried but couldn't save face in this beef no matter how Nicki responds she'll be on the sidelines with her ex wondering where they went wrong. LL Cool J even had to remind folks back in the day not to take him lightly on "Jack the ripper".
50 Cent exploded on the scene and made Ja Rule who was one of the heavy hitters in rap at the time irrelevant. 50 dropped "wanksta" "I smell pussy" and others against Ja Rule and Murder Inc. Ja Rule tried to come back but started throwing shots at other people who played no part in the beef such as Lil Mo, Eminem, Busta Rhymes and more. When "Hail Mary 2003" dropped it was the nail in the coffin for Rule. He disappeared in the shadows and 50 took his style when it came to music and ruled rap for a few years.
Jay-Z vs Nas who can forget their beef in the early 2000s. Two beast who are rap legends. Jay-Z released "the takeover" reaffirming why he is not a man to mess with on the mic but man oh man when Nas dropped "Ether". Jay-Z came back with "Superugly" but eventually the G.O.A.T. had to accept defeat on that one. They made amends years later but no rap beef has yet to top those two.
Right now Remy and Nicki has the potential to be in the conversation of great rap battles. It's clearly one sided at this point but to save face Nicki will probably try to release a come back, probably mentioning Remy jail time, her relationship with papoose, failed time in terror squad among other things only for Remy to come back and shut it down again. I hope Nickis big ass fake or not, is able to withstand multiple shots cause she's going to need all the help she can to help withstand these jabs she's about to receive. This my friends is the beginning of a legendary rap beef.
