Why A Nicki Minaj And Iggy Azalea Beef Could Be Good For Both Rappers


On Sunday night, Nick Minaj attended the 2014 BET Awards in Los Angeles and did something that stole the show. But it had absolutely nothing to do with her performance of her latest hit single, “Pills N Potions.” Rather, she raised a few eyebrows by making an acceptance speech after winning the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award that featured her seemingly taking a subliminal shot at her fellow female rapper Iggy Azalea, who’s been criticized in recent months for having other people ghostwrite her rhymes.

“What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj,” Nicki said, “when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.” As a result of Nicki’s comments, Twitter blew up. Facebook blew up. And a beef between Nicki and Iggy—whether real or imagined—was born. But you know what? This could turn out to be a good thing for their careers. Here are 8 reasons why.
