If you’re ever about to absolutely destroy a rival via song, maybe take a minute and imagine yourself in a room full of the Bronx’s best and brightest high school and college students. Would that give you any pause? Remy Ma gave an extensive interview and Q&A at the podcast Another Round’s live event Tuesday night at New York’s women’s club The Wing. Now that the atomic dust has settled, the “All the Way Up” rapper has mixed feelings about her Nicki Minaj diss track “Shether.” Mused Remy, “I don’t regret it, but I’m just not particularly proud of it either.” She also described the process of recording the track, which set the internet on fire upon its release on February 25. According to Remy, she didn’t notice its impressive length during recording. “I didn’t realize it was seven minutes until after it was done,” she joked. “Have you ever had an argument with your man where you go in and you realize after, like, I was cursing him out for the last three hours?”

Despite its reception, Remy Ma concluded “Shether”’s success was ultimately a bad sign for women in the industry. “It just bothers me that, this record that I put out, where it’s literally picking apart a female, went so viral,” she said. “We could have done the same thing, working together. I would have liked that so much better that way.” When asked why she didn’t team up with Minaj, Remy concluded, “It wasn’t me. You can’t force somebody to do something they don’t want to do.”
