Dee-1 freestyles in Doomsday Cypher, disses Nicki Minaj

Sway in the Morning invited Dee-1 to participate in its Doomsday Cypher in December, the video of which was released this past week.

In the interview, Dee-1 talked about his upcoming EP 3s Up. In his freestyle, he name-dropped Nicki Minaj — and not in a good way.

“Young queens, stop looking up to Nicki Minaj, man she’s a puppet,” Dee-1 said.

Andy Mineo and MC Jin are sitting in the background because they rapped in the cypher as well.
