Incarcerated rapper Remy Ma has addressed recent controversy over footage of a Nicki Minaj look-a-like claiming to have had sexual relations with her in the past.
According to Remy, the video is outdated and holds no truth whatsoever.
“I’m not gay, how would I have sex with Nicki Minaj,” Remy asked radio personality Jenny Boom Boom via a phone interview. “No, I never had sex with Nicki anybody. I’ve never done any girls in my life and I never would. But actually, that video came out years ago. I was home, actually, when it first surfaced. And um, I don’t know who that is. The crazy thing with me is that it’s been out for so long, I’ve been waiting for somebody to type on in the computer and something like ‘I know her, she lives next door to me, this is who it really is,’ but I never know. I don’t even know what the logic is behind that. But as far as Nicki, as a person, I’m cool with her. Like, when she was coming up, she used to go to my parties and I used to go to her parties and we was cool. I’ve never had a problem with her.” (“Jenny Boom Boom TV”)
The footage director, Cliffy Barz, previously said he was introduced to the Minaj look-a-like as “Nicki from the Bronx.”
“Basically I had a hip-hop show called ‘Harlem Streets,’ I was running it, it was a little hip-hop show in Manhattan, it aired every Sunday night so I had different artists I would interview,” Barz revealed in an interview. “And mostly, it was people from the neighborhood, regular street dudes that wanted to get some shine — I filmed it back in 2005 I believe. 2004, getting into 2005. But I aired it late December of 2007. Now when I aired it, a lot of people within a week, it got about 200,000 views. And I started getting phone calls, ‘Yo Cliff, was that Nicki Minaj that you filmed?’ Nicki Minaj? I didn’t even know who Nicki Minaj was until recently, about a year ago I found out who Nicki Minaj was. Nobody brought her to me as wicki Minaj, but what I do know is that she was brought to me as Nicki from the Bronx. So that’s what I do know.” (Vlad TV)
Writing via Twitter, Minaj sarcastically questioned the accusations being made against her last December.
“Ahahahahahhaahahhahaha! Lmaooooooooooo. So now I was a d*ke dat dated remy ma n made a vid dressed as a boy?!?!?!? Lmaooooo U ppl r simple.,” Nicki wrote. “RT @NellyBu: @NICKIMINAJ when ppl want 2 b u so hard n kno they can’t, they settle 4 bashin u instead! < Still I luv'em in a crazy way – TI RT @prettyeyes720: @NICKIMINAJ funny thing is ppl hate cuz they hate themselves cuz they blew their chance 2 have wut u have. < Wow… Oh, I'm sorry…I was out of breath…from chasing my dream. Dear hataz, #chaseurdream …It soothes the pain…*gotta go* Luv, HB ;) (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
The footage features a rapper representing the Bronx, New York and discussing her relationship with Remy.
"I used to f*cks with her, straight up," the alleged Nicki said. "I know her. I used to chill with her. I used to smoke with her. Burn L's and all that…I dead a** had relations with her and all that. Ate the box, you feel me? It's whatever…She ate the box." (YouTube)
