Iggy Azalea disses Nicki Minaj?

Iggy Azalea is prepping the release of Reclassified (out November 24), the re-issue of her 2014 debut album The New Classic. The expanded version will contain five new tracks, including what appears to be a Nicki Minaj diss.

A clip of “Heavy Crown,” which features British Pop singer Ellie Goulding on the hook, has been unveiled and it seems like Iggy is lashing out at another female celebrity. While no one has confirmed that the track is aimed at Nicki, all signs seem to point in that direction.

Nicki clearly hasn’t been warm towards Iggy, in fact everyone remembers her BET Awards speech during which she pointed out that she’s the writer of everything she raps, implying that she doesn’t need ghostwriters writing her material. And while Nicki was quick to clarify “no, no, no shade!” (really?), it was clear as day that the object of that remark was Azalea who, at that point, had been facing rumours of having a ghostwriter working on her bars (namely T.I.).

More recently, in a Billboard cover story, the reporter underlined how Nicki was annoyed by the mention of Iggy or even her music playing in the background. So is the Australian emcee firing shots back at her?

Judge for yourself! Here’s the “Heavy Crown” clip and some of the lyrics:

“This heavy crown.
It comes and goes around.
And when it’s time, I’ll pass it proud
But bitch I got it now.”

“So, keep it cute chick and don’t be hating on the new chick
Go back and check your stats.  I bet they let you know I do’s this!” 

“If you was mad before, I bet you hate me for this new shit.”.

“Don’t penny pinch.  I promise.  Baby, I don’t need your 2 cents.”

“Get rid of the makeup.  Let us see just who you is.”

Diss or no diss? Will Nicki respond on her own album The Pinkprint?
