Rapper Missy Elliott is officially making her return to the music scene, and with her new single and video “WTF,” it’s clear the innovator still has plenty left to contribute to the industry.

Interestingly enough, while many have taken to social media to praise her new song, some are slamming her because they feel she used a recent interview with Billboard to shade Nicki Minaj.

  1. It was shade but people need to remember Missy is very close to Lil Kim. Nicki shouldn’t take this too seriously.

  2. I don’t think this was shade. She always says this when people bring up other female rappers from the younger generation.

  3. I think Missy is more annoyed at Nicki being the only female rapper getting any love than actually being annoyed with Nicki. Queen Latifah said something similar. They don’t have a problem with Nicki but they come from a time where there was multiple women in Hip Hop doing well.

  4. I’d have to hear her tone but I can see how this could be shady. It’s possible Missy was like oh I inspire her, really?! on some she’s not dope enough to be my protégé type of situation.

  5. It’s shade. Missy did the same mess to Lil Mama then when folks caught on she tweeted something similar. She does not like when people compare younger rappers to her.

  6. It has to bug Nicki that so many of the old heads aren’t fans. I think beefing with Kim burned a lot of bridges.
