This is the type of reaction that let's me know who is not in tune with the culture of Hip Hop.
This is not an athletic sport where you're expected to cheer for the same team from the beginning of the game to the end. This isn't a bar fight where you take up for your drunk buddy no matter what. This is Hip Hop, where the best emcee always wins and if we are being objective, we don't make excuses for the loser losing. I'm not talking album sales or commercial success, I'm talking talent and quality of music and lyrics.
Which brings me to "Another One". It is clearly a victory lap for Remy. Not intended to be scathing or a sequel to "Shether". It is for Remy Ma what "Summer 16" was for Drake. A championship parade. A declaration of a win. As a song, yes it was mediocre, as was "Shether" and as Remy Ma is as a rapper... but as a proponent of the culture, I respect the person who shoots and misses the bullseye more than the person who never pulls the trigger at all.
This "king/queen of rap" title isn't permanent. It's ALWAYS up for grabs. You don't get to claim it when you aren't challenged, then refuse to defend it when a challenger arises. If Nicki can finesse this in her favor, then the discussion can be reopened but no, I'm not giving her a 'W' when she hasn't lifted a finger to defend her supposed crown.
