This is a situation where a phone call, or even an e-mail, would have made this slander avoidable. Last night, Nicki Minaj went off on New Jersey rapper Ransom when she was told that he insinuated he used to be her ghostwriter. However, Ransom denies he ever made such claims.

TMZ reports:

The drama involves a rapper named Ransom — who famously worked with Nicki in the past on several songs.

Ransom recently released a new song called “Man Alone” which contained the lyric, “Before Nicki was wearing those crazy wigs, I was doing verses for her, just hoping she made it big.”

After the song came out, there were reports on several sites — including (a pretty reputable rap site) — suggesting Ransom was basically saying he had ghostwritten some of Nicki’s songs … which is a HUGE insult. In fact, it’s one of the worst things you could say to a rapper.

So, when we asked Nicki about the situation last night — she went insane … crushing Ransom as a liar who’s “f**king desperate.”

“Yo, I’m not even a man and n**gas got my d*ck in their mouth,” Nicki said.

The YMCMB Barbie continued to snap, saying she ain’t heard from Ransom in five years and that he will never pop.

However, Ransom claims that he never said he ghostwrote Minaj’s bars. Worth considering is that he dropped “Man Alone” back in June with no real traction being generated behind it being a “Nicki dis.”

Now, here’s the problem — Ransom says the lyric was NOT meant as a diss. After the song came out, he tweeted, “As far as I know she writes her own [lyrics].”

So, is he suggesting that “doing verses for her” just meant that he was donating his time by rapping on songs for Nicki before she got famous? Or was Ransom saying he WAS her ghostwriter … and now he’s just backtracking??

Props to the camera guy for just telling Minaj one side of the story [sarcasm].
