Erykah Badu Throws Major Shade to Nicki Minaj on Stage During Show

 Erykah Badu Nicki Minaj Beef

By: A.J. Niles


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.

Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts on the diss by Erykah Badu.

    Shout out to Erykah for finally calling out a fake artist like Nicki Minaj. Nicki does nothing to help black people progress. All she does is look like and rap like a ho!

    Sigh… Erykah Badu’s career is in the grave. Why else would she go after a queen like Nicki Minaj! This overrated butt singer needs to have several seats before someone outs her heaux-ish ways!

      You know Ratchet Queen, I’m going to have to disagree with you on this one. Erykah’s music will continue to make money and she wil continue to sell out concerts. She as well as Lauryn Hill have timeless songs and will continue to play. Nicki on the other hand like many artist are not making timeless music. It is music for the time being until the next album come out. The rap error was my generation and to this day, they are still referencing earlier rappers and still continue to play their music unlike the rappers of today who don’t have Shigidy to talk about are only going to be played for the time being. I’m not saying Nicki does not have the potential and I’m certainly not taking nothing from what she’s doing on her grind…hats off; it’s just for the future, I’m sure they will not be playing Nicki Minaj on a remember this song back in the day.

    I got to give props to Erykah Badu for calling out that blown up, plastic doll Nicki Minaj. Nicki Minaj needs to just let the world know that she is as fake as a 3 dollar bill. SMH! I can’t stand Nicki skitstophrentic (sp.) butt.

    If you have kids with multiple men/rappers, I’m not sure if you’re in the position to call out other people on stage.

    I want to know why Erykah would diss Nicki? What is the history between these two? It seems that Erykah does things for attention so it wouldn’t be any surprise if this was a calculated move to get attention for her music; something that inspired her do that hideous video with the Black Keys and her sister.

    Yawn! This was really, really lame.

    This was funny. But I do think Erykah is doing it for attention.

    I don’t care for Nicki, but I’m pretty sure this was another attention whoring tactic of Erykah’s.

    Oh please. She just got on Twitter and said she has love for Nicki. She’s so fake! It amazes me how people are so quick to label Nicki as fake, but Erykah keeps getting that “real” label. But she’s the fakest chick in the biz. She sings all these “deep” songs and used to wear all those head wraps, but she was carrying on like the typical hoodrat in the day to day. How do you have all the illegitimate kids with these rappers and still try to pretend you’re conscious? And the icing on the cake? She drags all the R&B chicks for doing ho sh-t, and then a year or so later gets buck naked for a “music video.” She takes shots at people all the time and then denies it later like the fraud she’s always been. And Nicki keeps getting richer and doing things Erykah will only dream about. Stay hatin, ERICA.

    This is why I am no longer a fan of Erykah’s. She’s become just as thirsty as all the artists she THINKS she’s better than.

      The thirst is real!

    Never thought I would say this but Nicki is classier than Erykah at this point. I mean she did allow white men to “ejaculate” on her sister for blog attention not too long ago. :-/

      Correction HER SISTER allowed white men to ejaculate on her!!

    Nicki Minaj maybe a Queen to you, but she\’s not a Queen to a woman who banged one of the few rappers to go DIAMOND LOL. Might not like her music, but I assure you Erykah doesn\’t want for a thing

    Instead of worrying about Nicki Minaj she should be worried about her album sales

    No matter what you say, music nicki minaj makes is not on the same level as eryka badu’s, despite all her recent antics, she makes quality music, always has. Nicki Minaj gets so much flack from other artists because, she not authentic. Nothing is genuine about her MUSIC. Only people who buy her albums are people 12-16 who don’t know what they’re listening to.
