Overview

Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion Feud refers to an ongoing, public animosity between American rappers Nicki Minaj and Megan Thee Stallion. Online rumors suggest their feud started in March 2023. Still, things escalated after Stallion's diss track "Hss" was released in January 2024, to which Minaj intensely responded to the verses mocking her and her husband. Nicki also plans to release a diss track targeted towards Megan in her song titled "Big Foot," which is expected to be released on January 29th, 2024. Minaj's insults and jokes resulted in several viral clips spreading on social media that generated notable discourse.

Background

According to an XXL Mag[1] article uploaded on March 3rd, 2023, the disagreement between Minaj and Megan allegedly started after Nicki Minaj her song, "Red Ruby Da Sleeze," which referred to horses -- or stallions -- in the first verse (shown below).

700 on the horses, when we fixin' to leave
But I don't fuck with horses, since Christopher Reeves
(Uh-oh, uh-oh)
Gotta be careful when I dip, it's flips all in the whips
It's 40s with 30 clips, FN's with the switch
Guacamole with the taco, waitin' on El Chapo
Came in the Rolls and left low in a Tahoe

On January 26th, 2024, Megan Thee Stallion released the song "Hiss" on all streaming platforms, which amassed over 4.1 million views and 376,000 likes on YouTube[2] (shown below). One particular lyric in the music got online attention for mentioning "Megan's Law", which is a U.S. federal law that requires all states to establish sex offender registries and community notification.



These hoes don't be mad at Megan, these hoes mad at Megan's Law
I don't really know what the problem is, but I guarantee y'all don't want me to start

The verse mentioning "Megan's Law" was linked to Minaj's husband Kenny Petty, who is a registered sex offender after pleading guilty[3] in 1995 to the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl. Petty was also sentenced to three years probation and one year of home detention for failing to register as a sex offender in California in July 2022.
