Insight Into Female Rappers Beefs

Rap beefs have been the center of mainstream entertainment for over decades. Rappers have used their lyrical skills to publicly defeat their enemy, most of the time taking it too far. But its entertainment right? In a male dominated industry, women have had their share of beefs on and off the mic. It has become so common for female rappers to get pinned against each other, that these women have fan bases that are ready when necessary to defend their idols. By pinning women against each other, record labels have seen a jump in record sales. So are the record labels purposely doing this or do these women feel threatened that the next femcee is going to take their spot? Raptology does investigation. Let's take a trip down memory lane with the most infamous beefs:

Nicki Minaj vs Cardi B

These two women are under the same label. Queens rapper, Nicki Minaj has speculated to that her label is purposely trying to sabotage her career while boosting Bronx rapper, Cardi's career, but this isn't where it started. The disagreement started over Nicki's verse on "Motorsport". Cardi who is now the wife of Migos rapper Offset, felt like Nicki's verse was low key an aim at her, which led Nicki to changing her verse. After that these 2 ladies have been throwing subliminal shots through songs and even came to blow at New York Fashion week in 2018. Their record label is definitely behind this feud.

Nicki Minaj vs Remy Ma

New York femcees just don't seem to get along. This decade long feud started in 2007 when Nicki Minaj released a freestyle "Dirty Money" over Terror Squad's beat "yeah yeah yeah". Featured at Raptology, Bronx rapper, Remy Ma took offense to the freestyle and even went as far as confronting Minaj at a release party. A year later, Remy got incarcerated while Minaj's career skyrocketed but time only made the feud worse. Remy was released in 2014, and took her thrown back when she won the BET Awards Best Female Hip Hop Award, which Minaj won 7 years straight in a row. While receiving the award, Remy made it very clear that the feud wasn't over and also dropped a diss track "Shether", which exposed Minaj's fake body and her brother who was charged with child molestation. Minaj responded with the diss track "No Fraud". Since than, the ladies haven't spoken too much on each other.

Nicki Minaj vs Iggy Azalea

When Nicki accepted her BET award in 2014 for Best Female rapper she made it very clear in her acceptance speech that, " what I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj, when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it." Speculations quickly arose that Nicki was aiming for Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea, who at the time, was Billboard's First Female Rapper with the longest Hot 100 run at Number One. Supposedly Iggy used ghostwriters and Nicki Minaj was being petty, per usual. This fake beef was so cringe-worthy because Azalea totally disregarded Minaj by not responding to her, according to

Azealia banks vs Iggy Azalea

Azealia Banks was never really fond of Iggy, so it took her no time to comment on Iggy's departure from her record label, Island Records. Iggy tweeted that she was so relieved to release whatever kind of music she wanted to since the departure, and Banks took her chance to blast at the Australian rapper. Banks claims Azalea stole her name and since than has been throwing shots. Raptology is certain that banks instigated this feud simply out of boredom like she did our next feud.

Azealia banks vs Cardi B

New Yorkers have a thing for calling each other out. It must be something in the water, because in September of 2017, Azealia accused Cardi of using a ghostwriter for her hit song " Bodak Yellow" and didn't forget to mention that Cardi is just "a poor man's Nicki Minaj." Cardi fired back by posting Banks dancing to "Bodak Yellow" in the club. Banks visited The Breakfast Club in May of 2018, and had more than enough insults for Cardi, calling her everything from "an illiterate rat" to a caricature of a black woman." Banks did make a logically statement in the midst of the interview. "Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women's culture was really reaching an all-time high," in reference to Beyoncé's 2016 Lemonade album. "There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and than it was like Cardi B." Banks continued," ( I'm just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves wouldn't be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I'd be cancelled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day." Cardi was quick to respond via Instagram saying, " this is coming from a woman who bleached her skin but wants to advocate. GOODBYE." Banks must've gotten under her skin because Cardi soon after deactivated her Instagram.

Azealia banks vs Angel Haze

This beef was so unnecessary that it's actually comical. Nobody likes Twitter fingers and Azealia uses hers consistently. Banks tweeted out, "Seriously, if you were not born and raised in NY, don't claim NY! You are not a New Yorker." Michigan born rapper, Angel Haze took offense to this very quickly and even went as far as calling Banks " a charcoal skinned bitch" This came right after Haze released a song called "New York." Haze later apologized for her tweets, but not without releasing some diss tracks soon after.
