(AP) – Nicki Minaj is accused of ripping off rapper Lil’ Kim for her new cover of Vogue Japan. After the Chun Li rapper shared a photo of the cover on Instagram, people wrote that they thought she had copied Kim, especially with the fake mole she was donning.
Kim’s personal stylist even chimed in, saying she thought she stole her look. People also thought Minaj looked like Hennessy Carolina, the sister of Cardi B, who she was feuding with earlier this year. Minaj has yet to respond to the criticism.
(SL) – This article by Ed Pilkington for The Guardian highlights all of the details you need to know about Meek Mills recent sentence and the judge being accused of having a particular interest in him:
The entry in the Pennsylvania database is stark and direct. Inmate number: ND8400. Name: Robert Rihmeek Williams. Age: 30. Height: 6ft 2in. Location: State Correctional Institution Chester.
Behind those blunt words lies a story that has exposed a running sore within the US criminal justice system. The incarceration of Williams for minor probation violations related to a crime he committed as a teenager more than a decade ago has brought some of the biggest names in music and sport rallying to his cause, spawned a new hashtag and drawn hundreds of people to the steps of Philadelphia’s City Hall to protest.
From Jay-Z to Colin Kaepernick, influential supporters have spoken out against the perceived mistreatment of Williams and what it tells us about the experiences of a generation of African Americans. The outpouring has lifted the lid on a largely overlooked iniquity, in much the same way as the unmasking of Harvey Weinstein has laid bare the sexual misconduct of powerful men.

(SL)- There have been some pretty lyrical rap battles in the history of music, but none quite like this. Well, I can’t even call it a battle because whatever Nicki allegedly released with Gucci doesn’t directly reference Remy Ma. But Remy Ma isn’t into subliminal jabs or sneak attacks. She’s aiming straight for Barbie’s head and from the first word, Nicki knows she’s coming directly for her and it isn’t pretty.
Nicki also tried to take shots at Remy’s albums sales with Fat Joe and the track All The Way Up. However the song was nominated for a Grammy, so why she posted numbers from a debut week, I will never know. Unless, the post was made months ago. ‘All The Way Up’ clearly blew ….all the way up!
The track is a play on Ether, the famous 2001 diss track by Nas against Jay Z. Remy is dropping a lot of scoop in the track and to be honest I’m not quite sure how Minaj could even try to respond.
The lyrics are too explicit to share the track outright, but here’s a link…take a listen
Remy Ma ‘shETHER’ Private Link
Apparently this rap beef goes all the way back before Remy did her bid. This is personal. The bones to all of Nicki’s skeleton’s are probably trying to put themselves back together again. SCANDALOUS.
