During Erykah Badu‘s performance during the annual Afro Punk Festival in Brooklyn, New York; verbal jabs were thrown by Erykah towards rap and pop superstar Nicki Minaj. Erykah did a remix to Nicki’s “Beez in Da Trap”:
Erykah began her version of Beez In The Trap with, “B-tch you don’t beez in no trap.” Then she changed up the lyrics to ‘cheese in the trap cheese cheese in the trap.’
In the video of the diss, you can see that the crowd Erykah performed in front of reacted with “ooh’s”, “ahhs”, screams and cheers in excitement.
Although it is surprising that Erykah Badu took shots at Nicki Minaj, she is not the first. Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj have a long standing beef with one another and Nicki has taken shots on Twitter at other female rappers such as Azealia Banks. Radio personalities and former managers have even criticized Nicki Minaj and her musical abilities.
As of now, Nicki Minaj has not responded to the diss. Nicki Minaj has praised other female artists in the past including Lauryn Hill, Eve, Missy Elliott and others.
