Queen Latifah Weighs In On Female Rap Beef: “We All Need To Move Forward”
Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma beef aside, Queen Latifah still believes there is U.N.I.T.Y (pun intended) in the female rap community. HipHollywood caught up with her at the press day for Girls Trip where she talked about the need for female MCs to support each other.
“I don’t think there’s no unity, just because a couple of rappers are not feeling each other,” she said alluding to Remy and Minaj’s recent rap battle. “It can be a competitive sport almost but I think at the end of the day we all need to move forward. I want to hear female rappers everywhere so we need to be clicking up and we need to be supporting whose ever out.”
“Obviously you can’t just say whatever and do whatever without there being repercussions,” she continued. “There are consequences to actions and we see that. But at the end of the day the most important thing is let everybody say what they want to say just play the damn record.”
Latifah whose been busy making movies did say she’s been toying with the idea of making another hip hop album. In the meantime you’ll have to check her out in Girl Trip in theaters July 21.
