“You gotta challenge each other. It’s not a demographic thing as far as male or female. It’s about a demographic of rap,” says Mama. “If you’re a part of this sport, you gotta be down for the get down. It’s no sex separation.”
While Mama does not specifically address whether the Trinidad-born Minaj was the intended target of “Too Fly” (despite lines such as “If I was born in Trini and moved to the States, with the rage I make, I woulda got deported”), the former America’s Best Dance Crew judge does make it clear she was throwing down the gauntlet to any would-be rap competitors.
Mama later adds, “Shots fired, all the time, when it comes to those type of songs.”
