1. After WEEKS of VERY conspicuous silence, Nicki Minaj responded to Remy Ma late last night with not one but three new songs.
5. “No Frauds” is the most direct clapback to Remy’s “shEther,” with Nicki referring to Remy as a “basic bitch” and “Sheneneh.”

“Lil boogie down basic bitch thinkin’ she back / Back to back? Oh you mean back to wack? / Back to back? Me and Drizzy laughed at that”
6. But on Instagram, Nicki said she was after more than a simple diss. “We don’t do diss records, we drop HIT RECORDS & diss u ON them,” she wrote, alluding to the way Drake achieved both with his 2015 Meek Mill diss “Back to Back.”
