Releasing in just a matter of hours, the new tune was thought to be taking aim at the artist amid the pair’s long-standing spat. Nicki had already played a part of the track during an Instagram Live video on Friday, seemingly making subtle digs at Megan.
In the song’s lyrics it says, “Bad b***h, she like 6 foot, I call her big foot / The b***h fell off I said get up on your good foot.” Fans thought this was making reference to rapper Tory Lanez shooting Megan in the foot all the way back in July 2020.
Nicki even posted a snap of Megan when announcing the song. But she’s since taken to X, formally Twitter, after account Pop Base wrote: “Cover art for Nicki Minaj ’s Megan Thee Stallion diss track ‘Big Foot’.” She furiously replied, denying the post.
“Who tf said “diss track”?????? don’t play tonight. Fix your tweet.” Pop Base then followed up with, “Nicki Minaj says she has 5 extra songs ready if Megan Thee Stallion denies anything said on her new track ‘Big Foot’.”
Nicki was quick to respond again, writing: “Never said that ugly name. Stop lying on me. You want engagement so bad. Ima put your REAL name in the 2nd song just for s**ts & giggles. Go to bed.” The posts have since generated thousands of likes and reposts.
Megan’s latest release sees her apparently throw shade at Nicki Minaj. The songstress’ hit, HISS, has already caused controversy just days after its release as fans pick up on alleged drama from a number of lines in the production.
The song that was released on Friday features lines that seemingly will work to spark rows with Nicki Minaj as well as Kim Kardashian and Tory Lanez. One of the shadiest and most controversial lines from the hit makes reference to Megan’s Law. The singer chants: “These h*es don’t be mad at Megan, these h*es mad at Megan’s Law/ I don’t really know what the problem is, but I guarantee y’all don’t want me to start”.
Megan’s Law is a federal statute that requires law enforcement authorities to ensure that any registered sex offenders public information is available. With this reference, the rapper is hinting at Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty who in 2022, received one year of home confinement, three years probation, and a $55,000 fine for failing to register as a sex offender when he and Minaj moved to California.
Prior to the song release – and Nicki’s alleged diss track follow up – the pair had been taking public shots at each other for years. The animosity had been brewing long before HISS’ release and is said to have first started when Megan and Cardi B found musical success. The duo’s rise apparently made Nicki jealous.
