Nicki who once featured as a judge on American Idol released three songs – “No Frauds,” “Changed It” and “Regret In Your Tears.”
While the first two songs feature her label mates, Drake and Lil Wayne, and appear to address “Love & Hip Hop” star Remy Ma, the last song, “Regret In Your Tears” appears to address her ex, rapper Meek Mill.
Nicki shed some light on the inspiration for the song on her Instagram.
She said the song was “dedicated to all the bad a–, intelligent, strong, loyal women out there.
“When a man loses us, he loses so much more.
“Love YOURSELF! You’re worth being treated like the QUEEN u are. Never forget that.”
The songs are coming after Remy Ma released “Shether” on Feb. 25, sampling the same beat from Nas’ 2011 track insulting Jay Z.
One week after Remy Ma released “Another One” on New York City radio station Hot 97.
It’s been years since hip-hop had a true rap beef, but thanks to Nicki Minaj Remy Ma beef, fans finally can enjoy the spoils — the rap songs produced from it.
Let’s do a run through the three biggest rap beefs in recent times:
Drake vs. Meek Mill
A very recent rap beef is that between Canadian-American rapper Drake and Meek Mill.
The entire beef was started by a single tweet.
On July 22, 2015, Meek Mill wrote:
“Stop comparing drake [sic] to me too.
“He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out.”
That shade spawned 10 beef tracks between the two rappers.
Meek Mill’s stand-out diss tracks were “Litty” and “War Pain,” while fans assumed Drake won the feud with his chart-topping songs, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back.”
Nas vs. Jay Z
The beef between Jay Z and Nas all started when both rappers laid claim to the title of “King of New York.”
When you have two rappers claiming to the best out of New York, you’re bound to have a rap beef.

Gratefully, the two rap never took the beef off the records, and to the streets throughout the four years it lasted.
After years of insinuations, in 2001, Jay Z directly addressed Nas at Hot 97’s Summer Jam with his song, “Takeover.”
“Ask Nas, he don’t want it with Hov. No!”
From then, both rappers traded words in many beef tracks insulting each other, such as Nas’ “F— Jay Z” and “Ether, along with Jay Z’s “Supa Ugly.”
Supa Ugly prompted an apology from Jay Z after his mother, Gloria, told him he went too far.
Tupac vs. Biggie
Tupac and Biggie sprawled what has come to be the rift between the East Coast and the West Coast between 1991 and 1997.
These two late rap icons galvanized entire regions with their extremely vocal rap lyrics and heated diss tracks.

The feud between Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. heated up after Tupac was shot in New York City’s Quad Studios in 1994.
At the time, Biggie Smalls as he was popularly known was in a separate recording studio.
While the late Biggie continually denied any involvement in Tupac’s shooting, he released a diss track “Who Shot Ya?”.
The track had been recorded earlier before Pac was shot.
Tupac responded in kind with several diss tracks, including his 1996 song “Hit ‘Em Up.”
The beef sadly ended with both rappers dying after fatal shootings, which have never been solved.
