Thanks to a recent Instagram post, fans are now speculating that Nicki may have linked up with a former friend of Remy's just to try and rattle her. Nicki posted a pic with entrepreneur Rashidah "Rah" Ali earlier this week, referring to her as "my good good sis." Totally undramatic, right?
Not quite. Shortly after the pic was posted, fans began pointing out that Rah and Nicki's arch nemesis, Remy Ma, had a turbulent relationship back when Remy and Ra were both starring on Love & Hip Hop: New York. After numerous dramatic incidents between the two, their friendship ultimately fizzled out. This lead some on social media to suspect that Nicki and Rah posting a pic together was a premeditated, shady move, a theory which Rah later blasted in a lengthy letter posted on social media.
"It's important for people to know that the deterioration of my friendship with Remy Ma took place during season 6 of Love and Hip Hop. I want people to know that what they watched unfold was in no way staged or scripted and that I truly felt betrayed by Remy at the time," she wrote.
She went on to explain that she and Remy aren't enemies, but they aren't exactly good friends, either, writing, "With that being said, I am not working with Nicki out of spite or payback. Nicki and I were friendly long before the rap beef unfolded with Remy."
That's all well and good, but making an appearance in Nicki's "No Frauds" music video, which dropped today, pretty much negates everything she just said about not being shady, don't you think? You can check out screenshots from the video, courtesy of The Shade Room, as well as Rah's full statement, below.
