Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion’s Feud Escalates with New Songs and Social Media Spats

The rap beef between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj is heating up again, as both artists released new diss tracks aimed at each other on Tuesday, January 30, 2024.

Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion are not holding back their animosity towards each other. The two rap stars, who once collaborated on the 2019 hit “Hot Girl Summer”, have been throwing shade and insults at each other in their new songs and on social media.

The feud started when Megan Thee Stallion teamed up with Cardi B, another rival of Minaj, for the 2020 smash “WAP”. Minaj then released a song called “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” in 2023, where she seemingly dissed Megan Thee Stallion by referencing her “Stallion” nickname and the equestrian accident that left actor Christopher Reeve paralyzed.

Megan Thee Stallion responded with her first song of 2024, “Hiss”, where she took a jab at Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, who is a registered sex offender and was convicted of attempted rape charges. She rapped, “These hoes don’t be mad at Megan / these hoes mad at Megan’s Law”, referring to the US law that requires law enforcement to share information about registered sex offenders with the public1

Minaj also previewed an unreleased song called “Big Foot”, where she mocked Megan Thee Stallion’s foot injuries from being shot by rapper Tory Lanez in July 2020. Lanez is currently serving 10 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of the shooting. Minaj rapped, "Bad bitch, she like 6 foot / I call her Bigfoot / The bitch fell off / I said get up on your good foot"23.
