Is Nikki Minaj Creating Another Controversy with Megan Thee Stallion?
In the world of hip-hop, the release of a new Megan Thee Stallion song is typically a cause for celebration. However, the latest single, “Hiss,” has sparked a fiery feud between the Houston rapper and Nicki Minaj, escalating an ongoing beef that dates back to last year.
Released on Friday, “Hiss” sees Megan taking veiled shots at Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty. The track’s lyrics contain references that fans quickly interpreted as aimed at the couple, particularly highlighting Petty’s legal history. The song follows a history of diss tracks between the two, with Minaj’s “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” from March of the previous year adding fuel to the fire.

The feud reached a new height on Friday when Nicki Minaj swiftly responded with her own diss track titled “Big Foot.” The song takes jabs at Megan’s height, the 2020 shooting incident involving Tory Lanez, and various personal aspects of Megan’s life. Minaj’s response was not limited to music; she took to Instagram Live to tease the track and share provocative content related to the feud.
Megan Thee Stallion addressed the situation during a call to The Breakfast Club, not explicitly naming Minaj or Petty but stating, “I’m saying a hit dog gon’ holler.” The feud intensified over the weekend, with Nicki Minaj accusing Megan of using a ghostwriter and allowing her best friend to be bullied.
As tensions escalate, both artists seem to be gearing up for more musical exchanges. Nicki Minaj released “Big Foot” in full on Sunday, along with an a cappella version, hinting at additional diss tracks in the pipeline. On the other side, Megan Thee Stallion revealed in a Good Morning America clip that a new album is imminent, announcing plans for the “Hot Girl Summer Tour” in 2024.
