It seems like every hip-hop star is not happy with Drake these days. Nicki Minaj released her “Hard White” music video on Friday, February 1, and fans can’t stop talking about how the singer, 36, most definitely came for the “In My Feelings” rapper.

In the video, there is a dead scorpion getting crushed to death on the ground. If you’re a Drake fan, then you know that Scorpion was the name of his fifth studio album. Of course, people immediately knew that the ~shade~ was real.

One Twitter user wrote, “Anybody else peep the scorpion? #NickiMinaj #Drake #HardWhiteVIDEO,” while another echoed, “Was @Nickiminaj sending shots at Drake? #HardWhiteVIDEO.” A third chimed in, writing, “Yo if @nickiminaj and @drake really got a beef, then 2019 gonna be SOMETHING ELSE.”

To recap, the Trinidad native and the Degrassi alum, 32, have remained coy about their potential romantic relationship. The two have collaborated over the years, but when the “Super Bass” singer started dating Meek Mill, Drake dissed him in his song “Back to Back.” The lyric that seemed to be about Nicki was, “make sure you hit him with a prenup.” However, it seemed like the pair had made up in May 2017. “I’m so glad we found our way back because I love you,” Drizzy told The Other Woman actress at the Billboard Awards.

But wait, there’s more. Fans also think that the dead bird in the video represents Cardi B. “@NickiMinaj you really ended Cardi, Drake and the Grammys with only a music video. I stan foreva!” one person wrote.

Nicki and Cardi B, 26, got into a huge fight at a New York Fashion Week party in September 2018 after Nicki apparently made a comment about Cardi’s parenting skills. In response, the “I Like It Like That” singer supposedly threw a shoe at Nicki.

In October 2018, the brunette beauty reassured her followers that she was putting the past behind her. “OK you guys, let’s focus on positive things only from here on out,” she wrote on Twitter. “We’re all so blessed. I know this stuff is entertaining and funny to a lot of people, but I won’t be discussing this nonsense anymore. Thank you for the support and encouragement year after year. Love you.”

Hmm, well it seems like Grammy nominee is back to picking fights, once again.
