Did Nicki Minaj Diss Drake in Her New “Hard White” Video?
Is Nicki Minaj dissing Drake in her new video for "Hard White"? That's a question fans have been asking themselves since Nicki dropped off the visual on Thursday night (Jan. 31).
At one point in the video, a scorpion flashes on screen before it's quickly dismembered. Of course, Drake's 2018 album is titled Scorpion, and fans don't think this is any old coincidence.
Since the video's release, Twitter users have been sharing their thoughts on the potential diss, and while a lot of people agree that it's a shot at Drizzy, reactions to the alleged shot are mixed.
"Fuck em up Nicki Minaj," one fan said on Twitter. "Fuck Cardi B and Drake ain’t loyal!"
"Nicki Minaj shaded Drake's album SCORPION but didn't his album go to #1 on Billboard," another fan wrote. "So Drake is still winning. Nicki needs to take her L #HardWhiteVIDEO"
While there hadn't been many outward indications of a Nicki-Drizzy beef, the two superstars had seemingly had rough patches in the past. When Drake was beefing with Nicki's then-boyfriend, Meek Mill, they reportedly weren't on the best terms. However, they ended up patched things up once Nicki and Meek went their separate ways. Nicki and Drake even collaborated on Nicki's 2017 single "No Frauds."
As recently as May of 2018, Nicki was defending her fellow Young Money member in his beef with Pusha-T. Still, there's a chance that maybe their relationship has gone south.
