Nicki Minaj is ready to step to anyone who wants to pop off about her lyrically ability. The Queen Barbz went on her Twitter account to call out critics who think that her assets are the only reason why she's so hot in the rap game.

It all started when Bossip posed the question, “Why aren’t there more mainstream female rappers?” It’s a legitimate question, and it did generated various answers from the gossip website’s readers. However, Bossip retweeted a user who responded, "Yep, men are visual creatures they don't care if you can sing...That's why nicki had to buy an ass to blow up! #Fact."

Minaj caught wind of the tweet and went on a Twitter rant to remind haters that she can go up against any male rapper in the game and that he hard work and dedicated is the reason why she’s so successful.

“I’ve gone toe to toe w/everyone of your favorite male MC’s,” she wrote. “To undermine my skill & diversity as an MC is actually comical @ this point," she tweeted.

“If a male rapper was on tracks w/Wayne, Jay, Eminem, Kanye etc going ROUND 4 ROUND he’d b hailed as a GREAT as well,” she continued. “Jealousy is a disease. Your greatest achievement in life will be attempting to undermine my greatest achievements in life. lol. Now check that.”

Bossip then responded to Minaj's tweets by answering them using her lyrics from her cameo in Kanye West's horrorcore song, "Monster."

In the end, throwing Nicki Minaj under the bus doesn't help in the conversation. Say what you want about the Queen Barbz, she is a sharp lyricist who paid her dues in the rap game. We just need the male-dominated rap industry to open the doors for more female rappers to come through.
