Cast shade? nick minaj released his latest single “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” on Friday, March 3. Just hours after the song’s release, fans took to social media to speculate that the lyrics read Megan Thee stallion. Keep scrolling to find out why fans think the song is about Megan.
Is Nick Minaj’s ‘Red Ruby Da Sleeze’ About Megan Thee Stallion?
The speculation is linked to a line in the song, in which Nicki, 40, raps: “I ain’t fuck with horses since Christopher Reeves.” The lyrics reference the late actor, who was left paralyzed after falling from a horse in 1995.
Some fans believe Nicki is referring to 28-year-old Megan by using the “horse” reference because “stallion” is part of the hitmaker’s rap name “Sweetest Pie.”
Meanwhile, others argued that rapping about Christopher’s accident is also a jab at Megan because she was paralyzed the same year she was born.
Later in the song, Nicki seemingly references Megan again when she sings, “That .40 caliber makes ’em dance like a go-go.”
Several fans wondered if the lyrics were referring to when Tory Lanez shot Megan in the foot in July 2020. In December 2022, the “Say It” rapper, 30, was found guilty of three felonies arising out of the incident, including assault with a semi-automatic firearm, discharging a firearm with gross negligence, and carrying an unregistered loaded firearm in a vehicle. His sentencing trial is scheduled for April 10.
Additionally, police reportedly found a .40 caliber Glock 22 at the scene where the shooting occurred. During the trial, Megan testified that Lanez told her that she “dances, bitch” before shooting her in the feet.
Why are Nicki Minaj and Meghan Thee Stallion fighting?
Nicki and Megan seemed to be on good terms when they collaborated on the 2019 song “Hot Girl Summer.”
However, the rappers apparently had a falling out when Megan worked with cardi b on “WAP” in 2020. Nicki and Cardi are known to not get along and often call each other names in their songs.
Many of Nicki’s loyal fans saw Megan and Cardi working together as a betrayal of the “Super Bass” singer, though Megan hinted that she should be allowed to work with both women during a 2019 interview with iHeartRadio.
“I really hate the fact that [people do that]. It’s really like a lot of the fans,” the Texas native said at the time. “They really make it seem like you’re choosing sides. I really, really, really like them both. They are two different people, two different rappers. It’s not even the same. I feel like we need to stop trying to compare them.”
Nicki continued to fuel feud rumors when she dropped a remix of “Super Freaky Girl” in August 2022, which happened to be the same weekend Megan released her album Traumatize.
In the remix, he added the line: “Tell that fool, find a chair / She was arrogant, she could swear / ‘Til my old tape outsold your album / She drops a tear.” After the song’s release, several fans took to social media to wonder if the line was a reference to Nicki’s Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape which sold more copies than Megan’s Something For Thee Hotties.
In Megan’s song “Gift & A Curse,” she raps the lines, “Fix your face, bitch / It hurts, hurts, hurts / Anything that talks don’t make me nervous / Feeling yourself, put them down perkys.” While Megan hasn’t confirmed that the lyric is shadowing Nicki, some fans think it’s a reference to the “Bang Bang” singer’s 2014 song “Feeling Myself.”
