Hip Hop has always had a special place in my heart.. Don't know whether that's because I grew up listening to it, or because the BX birthed us both. Either way, my love for Hip Hop is REAL 🎶🎵. Words cannot express how excited I was to FINALLY find my long-lost Hip Hop slogan-beanie! No joke - I literally couldn't find it for 9+ months lol. At one point, I thought it accidentally got thrown out when I moved house. But nope; it was neatly packed away in one of my drawers in Antigua 😑. I'm still baffled as to how, when, and why it got there lmao... Since reuniting with my favourite beanie, I've been
wearing loving it nonstop 🤗. I mean - What's a bad hair day, to a dope beanie?! Ayyye 🤣.

If you're into Hip Hop and Rap music 🎤, then you know that this look couldn't come at a better time lol. Let's be clear! I got maad love for my fellow West Indian chick - Nicki Minaj, but Remy Ma UNDENIABLY bodied the shyt outta her on that Shether diss track 💣😩. Wayyyy too much heat 🔥🔥🔥. Remy certainly reminded us all that the Bronx is where Hip Hop was born, and it's undoubtedly where
real Hip Hop will always live. Respect it!
Although, I don't encourage girl on girl hostility; I do think this is just what the culture needs right now. Something that will re-ignite that fire the Hip Hop game is (somewhat) missing these days.
What do you think about this beef? Do you think Nicki Minaj will clap back? Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below!
