Queen Latifah Weighs In On The Remy Ma/Nicki Minaj Beef

Whose side is she on?

By Sharon Lynn Pruitt

Queen Latifah — arguably one of the most iconic women in the history of hip hop — recently shared her two cents on the rap beef of the summer, Nicki Minaj vs. Remy Ma.

Nicki and Remy have still been going at it — just last month, fans were losing it over Nicki's Remy disses on "I Can't Even Lie," and Remy took a few shots at her rival during her BET Awards acceptance speech.

Since then, 2 Chainz spoke on the awkwardness of being friendly with both women, and now Queen Latifah is weighing in on the situation, BET reports.

In case you missed it, Remy brought out Queen and a ton of other female rappers like Cardi B and MC Lyte during her Summer Jam performance last month, which led some to assume that Queen, as well as the other women on stage, were #TeamRemy. In a new interview with Hot 97 though, Queen assured fans that she isn't into feuding.

"I didn't really care," she explained. "Like I said, I didn't know it was all of us, so I didn't even really think about that. People can think and say whatever they want to say. This wasn't really a moment for all of that. This was a moment for us and for hip hop."

As Queen later explained, she's all about supporting female artists, not being petty.

"Let me tell you something: I support females in hip hop," Queen said. "I always have, I always will — there's room for all of us. And nobody, to my knowledge, that's younger than me invented this. So you don't get to claim it. You don't get to rule it. This is all of ours. All of ours. And my name is Queen, so what am I supposed to get into everybody throwing the queen thing around? Come on, it's stupid."

"Nicki was like the only one, practically," she later said of the current role of women in hip hop. "And that was never cool with me. I'm like, 'What about everybody else?' This can't be a movement, we can't keep this thing going with one person. We need a bunch of us."
