The Internet loves jumping to conclusions, especially when it comes to a Nicki Minaj verse. Her latest feature on London on the Track’s “No Flags” is no different. Putting pop-Nicki aside, we find Minaj in attack mode on the single with lines like:
Lil b*tch I heard these labels tryna make another me
Everything you getting, lil hoe, is cause of me
I heard I’m stopping bags, word to Shaggy it wasn’t me
These b*tches is my sons, but they daddy ain’t bust in me
I’m a white picket fence b*tch, you a on the bench b*tch
See me in the gym, now these b*tches wanna go bench press
I ain’t f*cking with you sis, we ain’t with the incest
Yes I am the Queen, I’m still trying to find a princess
Like a Game of Thrones episode, many fans are quick to create theories about what they just witnessed. The most bizarre is that Nicki is throwing shots at Cardi B. There are no obvious references to the former Love & Hip Hop star, but that didn’t stop the Internet from mentioning the “Bodak Yellow” rapper anyway.
So is Nicki dissing cardi b on no flags or what ? pic.twitter.com/wpO8JNUYqe

Why can't yall just let this Cardi B and Nicki imaginary beef go?

Nicki, however, did hop on Twitter after “No Flags” released to shut down the Cardi B rumors, so y’all can stop.

Of course there are those who believe she’s coming at her rap nemesis Remy Ma, but we don’t believe you (you know the rest of the line).
Who knows who Nicki is targeting, really? Maybe it’s just general smack talk. You know… hip hop? Either way, everyone needs to calm down with the theories, enjoy the damn song (it is lit, after all) and don’t let this distract you from the fact that the “old Taylor Swift is dead.”
There may or may not be subtle shade thrown out when Remy Ma tried guessing the next lyric to the song “Anaconda.”
