The alleged rift between Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea dates back to Nicki’s BET Awards speech when the “Anaconda” MC was thought to have thrown a shot at Iggy’s success. First, Nicki went on a Twitter rant claiming that she was showing no disrespect towards Azalea. Then, Iggy’s boyfriend, NBA player Nick Young, said he had to console his girl following the BET Awards speech.
Since then, the situation has died down and last night, the two female MCs put any notion of a beef to bed while backstage at MTV’s VMAs. While preparing for an interview with MTV News, Minaj stops to greet Iggy Azalea and the two exchanged pleasantries—as seen in the footage above. Whether or not the exchange was genuine, it was enough to put the beef rumors on hold for now.
