The Grammy’s Created A New Twitter Beef, But Does Nicki Minaj Have A Point?

“I have no prob being moved out the RAP category as long as we r ALL being treated FAIRLY,” Minaj tweeted late Thursday, in response to her submission being moved out of her chosen category. “If SFG (‘Super Freaky Girl’) has 2B moved out RAP then so does Big Energy!” she added.

Super Freaky Girl is a retake on Rick Jame’s Super Freak and Big Energy is a retake on Mariah Carey’s Fantasy. Both songs would be Pop related, but NM and Latto are both rappers. Do we even care about genres anymore in today’s listening culture? Rap is still a baby in the music industry, only being included in around the 1970s as a subgenre to popular music.
