The recording academy might not be on Nicki Minaj’s good side. The Grammys chose to include her song “Super Freaky Girl” in their Pop category despite it spending eight weeks at the top of the Rap charts. Reportedly, the Queens rapper originally submitted the track to the rap categories at the Grammys, but the decision was overturned by the Recording Academy’s rap committee.

The committee contended that “SFG’s” pop-influenced cover of Rick James’ timeless song “Super Freak” from 1981 ought to be considered for best pop solo performance honors rather than rap prizes. Nicki vented her frustrations on Instagram, writing, “They keep changing the goalposts when it comes to me. Why does the goalpost always move when Nicki is involved?

Minaj went onto draw comparisons between her number-one song and Latto’s “Big Energy,” which is up for Best Rap Grammy. She took to twitter to express her views. She wrote, “I have no prob being moved out the RAP category as long as we r ALL being treated FAIRLY,” She added, “If SFG (Super Freaky Girl) has 2B moved out RAP then so does Big Energy! ANY1 who says diff is simply a Nicki hater or a troll.”

Nicki’s remarks follow Kodak Black’s criticism of Latto for winning Song of the Year at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards. After Minaj’s post, the “It’s Giving” rapper posted something of her own on social media.

“Damn I can’t win for losing… I can’t even celebrate all these awards/noms.”

While Latto agreed with Nicki’s sentiments, she went on to text the Barb, saying, “I don’t think you need to bring my name/song up to prove a point.” In true Nicki Minaj fashion, she didn’t hold back with her response. She posted a screenshot of Latto’s message to her, writing,

 “This Karen has probably mentioned my name in over 100 interviews. Says she waited in line for Pink Friday w|her Barbie chain on, bangs, pink hair…but today, scratch off decides to be silent; rather than speak up for the black woman she called her biggest inspiration.”

Latto’s tweets suggest that this argument won’t be resolved anytime soon. You can check out their twitter conversation below. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
