As you heard last week, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj have joined forces and dropped a surprise remix of “Flawless” Sunday morning around one a.m. This new single has left the rap blogosphere and twitter completely blown away. What stood out the most to fans is Beyoncé’s verse, “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator,” giving an ending to the infamous elevator tussle between Jay Z and Solange. Then Nicki comes in reminding the world that she herself is hip-hop’s Queen Bee, she recalls the fire that she spat at the end of Kanye’s “Monster” dropped four years ago; and she declares herself as “the queen of rap, slaying with Queen Bey.”
Nicki also dropped her new single Monday morning “Anaconda,” bringing back “Baby Got Back,” dropped in ’92 by Sir Mix-A-Lot. The new single is already trending on Twitter with the hashtag, #AnacondaOnITunes. Early Monday morning the song was No. 4 on iTunes and NO. 1 Hip Hop/Rap. What do you think about both mixes? Is it possible that Nicki has taken over the Hip Hop world?
Making fun of people on social media may be entertaining. People tend to post things to get the audience’s attention and they do it for likes rather than care about what someone might think or if someone may be affected by these posts, in this case, Waka Flocka Flame, Trey Burke and Shaquile O’Neal; were just a few of a handful of celebrities that were named in a lawsuit filed by 23-year-old Jahmel Binion.
A couple of months ago, these celebrities all posted and made fun of a photo of Binion, who suffers from hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia –which is a disease that causes missing teeth and facial deformities—on Instagram and Twitter.
According to Malcom Daily, the lawsuit states that, “The defendants’ communications clearly implied that the plaintiff was an appropriate object of mockery, ridicule and shame [and] had the effect of lowering the plaintiff’s reputation in the eyes of those who respected the views and opinion of the defendants.”
The sarcasm began when Shaq posted a side-by-side photo of himself and Binion (who was toothless) with a caption that said, “Smile today.” Shortly after, Waka Flocka and Burke posted pictures of their own.
Shortly after the photos were posted all three of them reached out to Binion and apologized for their actions. Later on, Binion revealed to the Macomb Daily that he felt the apologies weren’t sincere.
“When they said sorry, I felt like they were saying it to get the pressure off of them for being considered ‘bad people,’” stated Binion. “Even though I accept their apology, I still hope that they donate to my cause or other organizations that connect with ectodermal dysplasia.”
Binion is supposedly suing for insult, intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and finally, general negligence.
What is your opinion? Do you believe that the apologies were sincere or that they were just a way to release the pressure from the celebrities?
As the artwork for Nicki Minaj’s new record “Anaconda” was released at the beginning of the week, the fans became extra thirsty. The upcoming record was originally due out July 28th, but unfortunately; Nicki had a delay in the plans and pushed back the date until August 4th. Reason being?
Rumors are circulating that the reason Minaj pushed back the date was because Beyoncé is dropping a new remix featuring the female YMCMB rapper.
According to HipHopWired, Nicki pushed her single back in order to avoid it getting lost in the sure to be excitement of a new Beyoncé track.
The rumored remix is for Beyoncé’s song “Flawless,” and is said that it will feature a verse from Nick Minaj herself.
With all of this excitement, comes even better news; MissInfo reports that it’s possible that Beyoncé may rap a verse herself. Is it possible that we could potentially have the opportunity to listen to both artists deliver bars on one track?
What is your opinion on this track? Beyoncé “Flawless (Remix)” featuring Nicki Minaj, it sounds quite pleasing doesn’t it? Let’s hope these rumors are true and that we won’t have to wait much longer!
