Remy Ma created a big stir back in December with her hard-hitting bars on”Wait a Minute,” a freestyle that included verses that some speculated were shots at Nicki Minaj. Fresh off of two Grammy nominations for their single “All the Way Up,” Remy and Fat Joe made the rounds of New York radio and naturally talked turned to Remy’s thoughts on Minaj.
When asked about the controversial bars, the Bronx rapper was adamant they were not directed at Minaj. In her visit to Ebro in Morning, Remy pointed out that she has an established history of taking direct shots at anyone she is dissing in her music.
“First of all Nicki Minaj never did anything to me. There’s no reason for me to sub her,” said Remy, who then added that subbing is not her style. “Any person I ever had a problem with or felt any type of way about, I will have no problem saying your name. I don’t want you sitting there wondering if I’m talking about you, maybe she’s talking about… I’m going to say your name, your government name, I’m going to talk about your kids, your dog, your grandmother, this is what I’m going to do.”
In discussing the Grammy nominee for best rap performance, Remy said she thought Desiigner’s “Panda” was most deserving of the award, but she knew when she saw multiple billboards in Los Angeles promoting Chance that he would win the word. While frustrated by Chance’s success at the Grammy awards, Joe conceded Chance had the verse of the year on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo single, “Ultralight Beam”
At the 67th Grammy Awards, Chance took home best rap album with Coloring Book and best rap performance for “No Problem.” The best rap/sung performance was awarded to Drake for “Hotline Bling,” a song also awarded best rap song.
