Nicki Minaj is not one to let trash talking go without reply. 

On Friday (Dec. 11), the rapper took to Twitter in response to some comments made by and retweeted by the African American gossip site Bossip that she took personally.

Bossip had asked "Why aren't there more mainstream female rappers?" And then it retweeted and replied to a number of responses, including some that called out Minaj's rap skills. 

 

Minaj asserted her dominance in the game first, saying she's gone toe-to-toe with every male MC worth note and it's "actually comical" to question her skill.

She went on to say any male MC who's accomplished what she has would be regarded as one rap's greats. 

 

Bossip, meanwhile, replied saying that just because it had retweeted some comments didn't mean it was supporting them. Instead, it was more interested in continuing the discussion.
