Nicki Minaj rehashes her VMA spat with Miley Cyrus in her remix of Yo Gotti’s “Down in the DM.” Gotti originally released the track last fall.

Minaj added two verses to the track off Gotti’s upcoming album The Art of Hustle. She references Miley at the end of the first verse. “He said ‘Kylie, what’s good?’/I said Miley, what’s good?/I said could you pay my bills like O’Reilly, what’s good?”

Minaj and Cyrus’ feud began when the latter called the former “not too kind” and “not very polite” in an interview with The New York Times prior to her Video Music Awards hosting gig. Cyrus was commenting on Minaj’s feud with Taylor Swift that began when the rapper tweeted about the “Anaconda” snub from the award show and noted how the ceremony celebrates “women with very slim bodies.” Swift responded on Twitter, believing the dig to be aimed at her.

At the VMAs, Swift and Minaj shared the stage, having resolved their spat. However, when Minaj went onstage to accept her moonman for Best Hip-Hop Video, she ended her speech very curtly: “And now, back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press: Miley, what’s good?” The camera then panned to a stunned Cyrus who claimed that the interview was “manipulated.”

Later, Minaj spoke with The New York Times about the incident in her own interview. “The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls,” Minaj said. “If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.”
