After frolicking in France for Paris Fashion Week, Nicki Minaj has issued a new song that finally answers Remy Ma’s diss track “Shether” released last month.
Minaj dropped three songs Thursday, March 9, on her official website touted as the #3PackFromPARIS: “Changed It” featuring Lil Wayne, “Regret Your Tears” and the Remy Ma response “No Frauds.” “No Frauds” features frequent collaborators Drake and Wayne and contains several scathing lyrics aimed at Remy. One line directly calls out “Another One,” the second diss track Remy released before Minaj mounted her response.
“Tried to drop ‘Another One,’ you was itchin’ to scrap. You exposed your ghostwriter, now you wish it was scrapped. Heard your p—- on yuck. I guess you needed a Pap,” the Trinidad and Tobago-born MC rapped, also seeming to play on Remy’s rapper husband’s name, Papoose.
The songs quickly reached the top 10 on iTunes the morning of Friday, March 10. “No Frauds” rested at No. 1 on the Songs chart, while “Regret In Your Tears” and “Changed It” sat at Nos. 4 and 5. Earlier Friday, Minaj had thanked her fans for their support on Instagram.
The “Anaconda” rapper defended her nearly two-weeks-late response by referring to the rappers who came before her.
“Here at Young Money, we don’t do diss records, we drop HIT RECORDS and diss u ON them,” Minaj rapped. “The greats took three months to respond to diss records. Queens don’t move on peasant time. Queens shut down Paris, then drop hits on #QueenTime.”
Minaj also issued a challenge to Remy, saying she had 72 hours to respond with a hit single.
“I’ll give you half a million dollars if you can book ANY show or interview without mentioning the Queen name,” she added.
Online, hip-hop fans applauded Minaj’s lyrical prowess.

Others weren’t impressed.
So Nicki, you are officially no longer the "Queen of Rap" and just a pop star.

Some made fun of her for getting assistance from Drake and Wayne and taking weeks to fire back.
