Nicki Minaj Competing In Rap Category At The 2023 Grammys Despite Fallout

It looks like Nicki Minaj’s rant against the Grammys and, by extension, Latto might’ve moved the needle for her.
That’s at least according to new information coming to light that shows that the uber-successful rap star is still actually nominated in several other rap categories.
The fracas started last week when the “Starships” rapper called out the Recording Academy when she found out that they blocked her Rick James-sampling “Super Freaky Girl” from the rap categories at the 2023 Grammys. The track was moved to Best Pop Solo Performance.
The move infuriated Nicki Minaj, who then demanded that she be treated fairly by the Grammys. To strengthen her point, the Young Money star said that Latto’s “Big Energy,” should also be placed into the pop categories. Her reasoning was that the track also used a prominent ’80s pop sample.
That brought on an all-out Twitter war between the two rappers. Now it seems, at least according to Variety, the “Bang Bang” rapper is still in the running for some other rap categories. One example is her track “Do We Have a Problem?” which is a collaboration with Lil Baby. That track is being considered for Best Rap Performance.
