Doja Cat - Paint The Town Red (Official Video)

Minaj has had several viral moments from 2023 into just the past few days. She acknowledged on her X (formerly known as Twitter) account that the show will be "iconic," and her "Barbie World" single with Ice Spice and Aqua has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, But its her brand-new song "Big Foot" that has the Internet buzzing in an ongoing online feud with singer Megan Thee Stallion.

Stallion's Jan. 26 release of "Hiss," while purportedly throwing shade at Minaj, also lyrically takes a dig by mentioning Meghan's Law. This refers to a U.S. federal law that requires all states to establish sex offender registries and community notification. Minaj's husband Kenneth Petty served a four-year prison term after pleading guilty in 1995 to the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl. In 2022, he was sentenced to three years probation and one year of home detention after failing to register as a sex offender in California.

Minaj then took to Instagram Live with "Big Foot," a not-so-thinly-veiled reference to Tory Lanez, who shot Stallion in the foot in July 2020. A jury convicted Lanez in December 2022 of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, having a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence to the shooting. He is serving a ten-year sentence in North Kern State Prison in Delano, Calif.
