Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj Say: “Where’s the Beef?”

“Fancy” rapper Iggy Azalea has spoken out about Nicki Minaj’s apparent slam against her at Sunday’s 2014 BET Awards. The Harajuku Barbie created controversy ’round the Interwebs with some seemingly biting remarks as she edged out newcomer Iggy for the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist gong.

The five-time BET Awards champ said:

“What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”

That particular line was read as a shot fired at Azalea and set off an explosion of tweets analyzing Nicki’s perceived jab. Interestingly enough, Nicki — who has famously feuded with fellow femcee Lil’ Kim and pop legend Mariah Carey — was surprised by the fallout that ensued.

In a series of tweets posted Wednesday, the “Pills N Potions” artist accused the media of putting words in her mouth and denied she has any rift with Iggy Azalea.

For her part, Iggy appears “ovah” it. The Australian (maybe) lyricist (Well, that’s up for debate, huh?) posted a note on her Instagram account early Thursday, calling the BET Awards drama “lame.”

Who’s up for an Iggy-Nicki collabo?
