Nicki Minaj made headlines for her BET Awards acceptance speech because many thought she was taking subliminal shots at up and coming female rapper Iggy Azalea.

Although Nicki denied the comments she made about supporting authenticity and how important it is for female rappers to write their own lyrics were digs at Iggy, Iggy’s man, NBA player Nick Young, says she’s lying.

When asked about the Nicki controversy, he says via The New York Daily News:

“Iggy is doing big things and that is what is scaring people,” Lakers star Nick Young said on Tuesday at the Body at ESPYs party celebrating ESPN Magazine’s sixth annual Body Issue. “She is going to brush it off. She won’t let it get to her. She is number one — what can you do? She’s at the top right now, so of course they are going to come at you.”

    Iggy’s at the top really with just one hit on her resume and a flop album? N-gga please.

      Like he’s going to be around in a few months. If she gets anymore play, he is gonna be left behind with the quickness.

    There’s nothing wrong with him defending his girl but I think he’s in denial about her talent.

    *sucks teeth* When Nicki first came out, she caught way more criticism than Iggy did and she handled it like a big girl and let her lyrics put her critics in their place. Iggy is only getting babied because she’s white. I’ve never seen the media coddle a female rapper this much before. Smh.

    I think I’ve been over Iggy since Forbes lied and said she ran Hip Hop. How? She’s only been out for five seconds and this is the first hit she has ever had. She still has a lot more to prove. And didn’t her album only sell like 50,000 copies the first week?

      Her album didn’t even go gold. So you know Forbes only said that to shade Nicki and hype up their new White Hope. They want Iggy to be the next Macklemore so bad.

        Next time we see Macklemore it’ll be VH1 One Hit Wonders of 2013.

    Iggy needs to put her mic down if she can’t handle the criticism. This is Hip Hop. People will always test you and challenge you to show what you have. If you can’t handle it, then get out of the kitchen. And lastly, she’s not very good. I think Fancy only blew up because of the chorus. Her verses leave much to be desired.

    Someone tell this Australian fraud with the fake Atlanta accent to come get her wack a-s man. She ain’t on top of nothing until she can put out an album that doesn’t go wood.

    F-ck Iggy. She gets one hit and now folks want to pretend it erases all the success Nicki actually worked for. Chile cheese.

    LOL at his delusion. Iggy isn’t on top yet. She got lucky with one song that blew up because the chorus was hot.

    I can’t stomach Iggy. She’s a terrible rapper and her voice is annoying. TI also could have written better lyrics for her too if he was going to push her out on us so hard.

    I wouldn’t be bragging if I was Swaggy p about Iggy being on top cause she has one hit record. Even Vanilla Ice and Millli Vanilli had hit records and look where it got them.

    If Iggy is still around in five years music wise, then I’ll take her seriously.

      I won’t even take her seriously then.

    He needs to stick to playing ball cause this hip hop we about our people and if she wasn’t with TIP we wouldn’t even give her the time of day. If she don’t come out with another good song she will just be another one of those one hitters. Niki is not worried about this girl Niki got how many awards and how many grammy’s and how many millions of her music has she sold? IJS!!!

    Nicki doesn’t even need to respond because if she does the white media will do her like they did Kanye over the Taylor Swift thing. They are very protective of their own.

    No, sorry. Iggy is not on top. Her album flopped and one hit won’t make her a success in a fickle business like the music industry. But if this how her boo is talking, it makes me think she’s already gotten the big head and she she really needs to humble herself. It’s too early to be cocky.

    Ain’t nobody taking Iggy seriously except her man. She can’t rap for sh-t.

    He said this, not her. He sounds like her biggest fan, but that kind of fan can be destructive. She is just beginning.
