Remy Ma came dressed for a funeral when she held her first — and what she said will be final — interview about her Nicki Minaj diss track “Shether.”
The MC appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” Friday, March 3, after dropping a second diss track for Minaj titled “Another One” the night before. Remy sat alongside “Plato O Plomo” collaborator Fat Joe and, while the Terror Squad Entertainment CEO stayed quiet, his friend openly discussed the truth behind her issue with Minaj.
“It was the behind-the-scenes things that you people will never know about as far as trying to keep me off of red carpets, and trying to make sure awards don’t go to me or she’s not going to be in attendance, or trying to get people to make bad reports about my album sales to make me look less and to make her look better,” Remy said. “When you’re trying to stop my bag, when you’re trying to stop me from taking care of my children, then I have a problem with that.”
Remy, who added she’s not waiting for a response from Minaj on her 7-minute diss track, said the “Anaconda” rapper is the one who started their beef. Remy also said Minaj has a reputation for disrespecting women in the industry, including Lil’ Kim and Mariah Carey, and added “Shether” was never about them battling musically.
“I don’t care about the record,” Remy told Williams. “To me, the record that [Minaji] did that everybody was saying — and that I also heard behind the scenes that she was promoting as the record that was going to end me — I thought it was wack. I didn’t care about that. What bothered me was the behind-the-scenes things. You’re so up and you’re on top of everybody and you’re better than everybody, why are you worried about little old me?”
“You’re so up and you’re on top of everybody and you’re better than everybody, why are you worried about little old me?”
Remy wrapped up her statements by declining to eviscerate Minaj on television and acknowledged her funeral-esque attire by deadpanning, “My grandmother told me to never speak ill of the dead.”
On Twitter, several users latched onto Remy’s outfit that indicated she was in mourning Minaj’s rap battle death.

Several took aim at Remy for prematurely releasing a follow-up diss track when Minaj hasn’t responded to her first one.
