Nicki went to Instagram last night (April 15) with footage of Hart turning up to her newly released single.
Yesterday, Nicki responded to seeing past rivals Funk Flex, Peter Rosenberg and Joe Budden all co-sign her new “Chung-Li” banger.
Wait hold on. Yo did hell freeze over? 🤭 wait 🤔🤣😂 I wasn’t in NY so idk if this rlly happened. This COULD be a fake video. 🤷🏽♀️ Were bombs dropped on #ChunLi? Did Flex say this record #HARD????? Did Joe say this record #HARD? Did Rosenberg say #QUEEN????? Man, all I’ll say is THANK YOU. Takes real niggaz to do this. I don’t mind criticism, but hating on smthn that’s clearly hard AF will only make you look less credible, miserable, & prove your issues are PERSONAL & unwarranted. So respect to everyone showin love. I haven’t asked anyone to promote my music. Haven’t buttered anyone up behind the scenes, haven’t booked their show, reached out, NOTHING! I simply dropped music & hoped that the REAL ones (even ppl who’ve said negative things in the past) would acknowledge & give credit when/where it’s due. I wrote #BarbieTingz AND #ChungLi verses & HOOKS on BOTH; but I’m most proud that as a young black female rapper, I signed a producer and CO-Produced #BarbieTingz WITH him. S/O @jreidtheproducer. I do a lot of co producing & post production but that overall picture isn’t usually painted of me as an artist; so Id be lying if I said this doesn’t feel great.

Back in February, Funk Flex publicly called Nicki Minaj and some other musicians “wack” rappers.

Last year, Joe Budden criticized Nicki for trying to make a rap comeback with Young Money’s help.
“All of the sudden there are a bunch of Young Money pics floating around with Wayne, Drake, Nicki, now all of the sudden everyone of the picture artwork is you [Nicki], Drake, and Wayne. Get that sh*t out of here, I hate that. Who was there for Wayne when he was having seizures and sh*t, I ain’t see a picture then. I don’t want to see it now that you may need that conglomerate to get back. I don’t want to see that now. I want to see you float on your f*cking own, Nicki. Best woman rapper in the world. I want to see her do it alone.” (Complex)
