Saturday was canceled after Remy Ma unleashed a new diss track against Nicki Minaj called “ShETHER,” a play off of Nas’ iconic 2001 diss called “Ether” against Jay Z utilizing the same menacing Ron Browz-produced beat.
The nearly seven-minute-long track finds the Bronx rapper exposing the Queens MC in a hard-hitting barrage of claims that cite Minaj’s family (specifically her brother), label deals and, uh, butt while also gunning for the title “queen of rap.”
Like Rem assured in a recent Breakfast Club interview (“If you look at the history of Remy Ma, whenever I’ve had a problem with any female in the entire game, I will say your name”), she not only called out Onika by her rap name, she also cited several hip-hop associates connected to Minaj.
Here’s a guide to the name-dropping, plus any reactions to the savagery.
Collaborator as heard on on “Touchin, Lovin” and “Bottoms Up”
“ShETHER” lines: “And I saw Meek at All-Star, he told me your ass dropped/He couldn’t f— you for three months because your ass dropped,” “Meek, Drake, Safaree, I see men in your pants” and perhaps any mention of “man”
Songz’ response: The singer took to Twitter to make a general assessment of the shout out: “Even when you stay out of the way they will have ya name all in some shit. Wake up to new comedy everyday. Focus.” After a few tweets, he then @’d Nicki Minaj: “You need to be mad at Remy Nicki … cause if you check my Instagram feed I already denied it on video so words didn’t get misconstrued. I didn’t post anything indirect. I gathered a understanding of events and then spoke my piece. You just mad. I still love you.” He threw in another “I love you” before promoting his site.
