The music industry is known for controversies and drama and the rap business is no exception. With that being said, Minaj has been at the center of controversy for a long time along with her low-key social media feuds with Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Latto, and other up-and-coming female rappers. And now the rapper is claiming that the female rappers’ record labels are paying money for social media posts dissing her.

Nicki Minaj and Rah Ali held a virtual listening party for Nicki’s new track “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” on the Stationhead app on Tuesday. And during the discussion, Nicki talked about her views on the state of the rap business. “As you rap and you write, you get better. And you get better every day,” she began.

“I think the thing is, now, because of the…I think I mentioned this before, the micowaveability of TikTok artist getting deals, Instagram people getting likes or Twitter people…girls’ labels and management companies paying for viral tweets and paying for Nicki diss tweets and all that.

So, now, it’s kinda like, if I don’t remind them that we’re actually here to rap, who will? And then, on top of that, don’t ever put me in the same muthaf***in sentence. Don’t use my name for any examples.


You have to write your verses, period. And I say that with love because I think that now people are feeling pressure of having to, I don’t know, do things so fast.”

Besides that, Nicki Minaj explained that “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” is not the lead single from her latest album, which is going to be the follow-up to 2018’s Queen. “‘Red Ruby [Da Sleeze],’ I dropped is as a itty-bitty just something,” Nicki added.

“Cause I know it’s gon’ go off on tour, it’s gon’ go off on y’all. It’s just rapping. But the album, obviously, I have to drop my official single for the album. Red Ruby’s not the official single for the album.”

Nicki appears to be getting ready to make her comeback at last. She recently revealed the artist roster and announced the launch of her own record label on an episode of Queen Radio. Keep an eye on Thirsty For News to get the latest updates regarding the rapper’s upcoming record label.
