Up and coming Brooklyn rapper Phresher turned a lot of heads this past summer with his infectious single “Wait a Minute,” and the song received another boost when 50 Cent and Remy Ma added their verses to a remix in November.
The song now has an accompanying visual, which includes appearances by Cardi B and Young M.A., who acts as Remy’s hype person when she spits her verses. With the video out and the lyrics coming under closer scrutiny, fans have concluded Remy Ma was taking shots at Nicki Minaj, with whom Remy always had had a less than amiable relationship.
Even if the line “Get rid of those fake breasts,” could be applied to any female entertainer (including Remy), it appears she was laying the foundation to take a direct shot at Minaj with the lyrics “That ghostwriter bout to call her. That lifeline getting shorter.”
Both lines are thought to be a reference to Minaj’s ex Safaree who has claimed he was a ghost writer for Minaj, a charge she repeatedly has dismissed. Safaree also recorded a Minaj and Meek Mill diss track titled “Lifeline.” The lines followed with the lyrics “warn her,” a reference to Biggie Smalls’ song “Warning,” a song Minaj remixed in 2007.
To drive home the Safaree reference, not long after the freestyle was first released, Safaree posted an image of himself, Remy Ma and her husband, Papoose, and described them as “epitome of #relationshipgoals,” seen at the time as shady commentary on Minaj’s sometimes rocky relationship with Mill.
It’s not clear what Remy is mad about, but Minaj currently is viewed as the queen of the category among females so it would make sense that Remy who is near the top of the heap herself would want to to topple Minaj from her throne.
In the meantime, we would like to know where Remy procured that very fierce LV fur trapper hat!
