Iggy Azalea Addresses Nicki Minaj/BET Awards Controversy

Now that Nicki Minaj has come out and stated that she did not attend to slight Iggy Azalea with her much talked about speech at the BET Awards this weekend, Iggy is now addressing the issue publicly as well.

Many people suspected when the Young Money rapper offered her “when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it” line after picking up the trophy for Best Female Hip Hop Artist, she was subtly directed those words at fellow nominee Iggy Azalea.

Minaj later tweeted out a message denying she was throwing shots at the “Fancy” performer and claimed the media put words in her mouth.

Nicki’s tweets are a change of tone from earlier in her career. Her comments on female Hip Hop artists writing their own lyrics were more combative back in 2008. She rapped “How the f**k you in the game like ten years strong? Y’all b***hes still can’t write your own damn song?” during her breakout freestyle on The Come Up DVD.

Iggy also went to social media to give her response to the controversy, and she is looking to move past the entire matter too. She posted a note on Instagram and then continued her statement on Twitter.
