We didn’t see all this coming in 2024. First, it was Katt Williams vs every Black comedian ever . Now it seems to be Megan Thee Stallion vs Nicki Minaj.
On Friday, the Houston MC released her previously teased single, “Hiss.” Initially thought to be another fun, energetic track from Meg, the song became a scathing diss toward all of her rivals and haters in the music industry.
In only the first 10 seconds of the song, Megan Thee Stallion is clear that she woke up that day and chose violence. She announced, “I just wanna kick this shit off by saying’ f**k y’all! I ain’t gotta clear my name on a motherfuckin’ thing! Every time I get mentioned one of y’all bitch ass niggas get 24 hours of attention. I’m finna get this shit off my chest and lay it to rest.”
That’s one hell of a way to start off a song.
While there are many vicious lines in the song, a standout was, “These hoes don’t be mad at Megan, these hoes mad at Megan’s Law/ I don’t really know what the problem is, but I guarantee y’all don’t want me to start.”
Upon further investigation, the line might be a shot at Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty, who failed to register as a sex offender under the conditions of his probation. Megan’s Law is a federal statute that requires law enforcement to make information about registered sex offenders open to the public so people can “better protect themselves and their families.”
Unsurprisingly, Megan also took another shot at the man who was criminally convicted of shooting her in the foot, Tory Lanez. She rapped, “Nigga ain’t you hear?/I ain’t scared of dick/Any man go against me, I handle shit.”
She continued, “I’m the Teflon Don in the courtroom/They be throwin’ that dirt, don’t shit stick.”
The shots didn’t stop there. Fans on social media also think the Houston Hottie went at the one and only Drake on the song, “These niggas hate on BBLs and be walkin’ ‘round with the same scars.”
Nicki Minaj’s response
While Drake has kept quiet (for now), and Tory Lanez can’t respond (he’s sitting in prison), Nicki Minaj was ready for all of the heat Megan had for her.
Shortly after “Hiss” was released, the “Pink Friday” rapper hopped on Instagram Live and played a short snippet of an unreleased track that goes at Megan.
Fans can hear Minaj rapping, “Bad bitch she like six foot, I call her Big Foot/ The bitch fell off, I said get up on your good foot.”
This is clearly a reference to Megan being shot in the foot July 2020.
Minaj added fuel to the fire by tweeting out a picture of her recently pedicured feet after a fan asked to see them. But the smoke didn’t stop there. Later during the live, Minaj can be heard saying, “Three Grammys and you have to learn how to rap on the beat.” She then seemingly mocks Megan’s rap style.
While those are some ruthless shots, Megan didn’t seem bothered, posting a picture of herself laughing on her Instagram story.
