Whew Chile: 7 Most Outrageous Hip-Hop Rants Worth Remembering

Remember these?

Hip-hop heavyweights Nicki Minaj and Cardi B have been embroiled in a beef for quite some time, and it came to a head yesterday (Oct. 30) after Cardi B dropped receipts in a lengthy rant against the Head Barb In Charge.

In 11 separate videos posted to Instagram, she discussed everything from Minaj endorsing "nasty a** f**kin' behavior" on Twitter, claiming Cardi's use of "sympathy and payola" is how she's built a career, and much more.

"I should sue you for defamation of character since you wanna claim that I am using something illegal called payola because you don’t understand why I am so f**king successful,” Cardi said. “Why is it that when people want to listen to me, you cannot believe it, that I gotta be cheating for that…how could I possibly use payola?”

While both musicians amicably (?) agreed to stop the petty nonsense, the rant captured headlines and was one for the books. This wouldn't be the first time hip-hoppers have made headlines for spirited tirades against their haters.

In no particular order, take a look back at some of the most outrageous ones below.

7. Kanye West On "Sway In The Morning"

In 2013, Kanye West made a visit to Sway Calloway's Sirius XM show Sway In The Morning, where he responded to the host's comments about his past attempts of breaking into fashion. Visibly agitated, West takes jabs at Sway's previous attempts at creating his own fashion line and states that he's trying to maintain relevancy.

Key lines: "I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh."

"You ain't got the answers Sway!"

6. Nicki Minaj On Episode 4 Of "Queen Radio"

Nicki Minaj's Beats 1 show Queen Radio is definitely a way to connect her to fans, play music and talk her sh*t. During the fourth episode, shortly after her fourth album Queen debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 charts, Minaj went at Travis Scott, critics, and many more throughout the show.

Key line: "You think Harriet Tubman was walkin' around with a f**kin' nice, shiny f**kin' dress on, and a f**kin' crown on her head when she was taking slaves to freedom?"

5. Trina Calls Out "Bum A** B**ches" On Instagram Live

We should all know by now that Ms. Trina is nothing to mess with. In a 2017 Instagram Live session, the Diamond Princess called out unidentified "jealous a**, mad a**, wack sad a**, bad body a**, nasty looking a** b**ches" for speaking ill on her name.

Key line: “If you call me a b**ch, make sure you put 'baddest’ in front of it, wack a** h*es."

4. Trick Daddy Threatens Person Via Facebook Live

Trick Daddy made many very uncomfortable after hopping on Facebook Live in 2016 to address someone (who is believed to be a woman) who wasn't a fan of his.

Key line: “Tell that b***h to keep my name out your mouth, b***h…before I stick a pistol in your mouth."

3. Omarion Not Pleased With Grammy's Snub

 

In late-2015, Omarion went on a Twitter rant after it was announced that his hit song "Post To Be" wasn't nominated for a Grammy award. The tweets are now deleted, but screenshots live forever.

Key lines: "This isn't an 'I'm upset" (post to be) rant. This is a- ok so that wasn't good enough. I'll be back. Have my Grammy's ready... It's my destiny. I was destined. Chosen."

2. Kanye West Comes For Wiz Khalifa

 

A misunderstanding about the acronym "KK" (which stood for Khalifa Kush") lead Kanye West into a Twitter rant against the Taylor Gang MC in 2016. Some of the since-deleted tweets pertained to how Wiz "stole his whole sh*t" from Kid Cudi, how his ex-wife Amber Rose "trapped" him with a child, and oddly enough... his "cool pants."

Key lines: "4th you let a stripper trap you" ... "I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years"

1. Amber Rose Comes For Kanye West

Amber Rose and her ex-husband Wiz Khalifa weren't spared by Kanye West's misunderstanding of what "KK" meant back in 2015. While Wiz kept his response to the Chicago rapper pretty tame, Amber Rose made sure to fire back at her ex-boyfriend in a much-meme'd Twitter response.

Key line: Awww @kanyewest are u mad I'm not around to play in ur a**hole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyA**B**ch"

The beauty enthusiasts and natural lovers out there will be thrilled to know the product was made with 100 percent gentle naturally-derived cleansers (Glycinate and DEFI), free of sulfates and parabens, and pH balanced.

With 14 new variants and Valentine's Day around the corner, it's only right to plan ahead for a focused day of self-care. Below is a playlist supporting each new scent. From Ari Lennox's "Shea Butter Baby" painting a theme for the Pampering Body Wash Shea Butter & Warm Vanilla to D'Angelo's "Alright" absorbing the vibe of the Sensitive Skin Body Wash, there's a scent and dynamic sound made for you.

11 Takeaways From The 2020 Grammys

There are many factors that go into winning a Grammy, the most coveted music prize of the industry. It’s more than “is the song good?” Sometimes it’s based on campaigning, other times it’s based on what voters feel should be the industry standard. However, the fun doesn’t come until after the ceremony, where all the winners have been revealed and it’s time to process what it all means for the larger picture and the future of recording.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards was met with controversy this year thanks to a lawsuit against the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences from ousted CEO, Deborah Dugan. Through her explosive claims and allegations, the voting process has gotten even less transparent— and we’re left with more questions and mysteries than answers. Still, artists and media moved forward, and the focus has temporarily shifted back to the music and the awards.

Here are 11 takeaways from VIBE that capture the essence of key wins (and snubs) at the Grammy Awards.

10 Problems With The Grammy Awards And How To Fix Them

Going into the 2020 iteration of the show, The Grammy Awards couldn’t be more irrelevant and in a place of struggling to attract younger viewers. Each year sets new lows in the coveted 18-49 demographic, and the show continues to take one step forward and ten steps back when it comes to its relationship with hip-hop. The step forward this year will be the confirmed tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle featuring Kirk Franklin, DJ Khaled, John Legend, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, and YG. Fixing what was once the most cherished institution of the music business and one of the most-watched events of each year is complicated and will require drastic directional shifts and changes to elements of the show that have been part of its fabric for many years. These are the 10 problems with the Grammy Awards and how to fix them.
