“A praying grandma is the only thing that’s gonna save Nicki right now.”
This is 25-year-old Raven from Atlanta. She, like many others, listened to the lethal, seven-minute Nicki Minaj diss track from Remy Ma over the weekend and had serious feelings about it.
And this is Raven’s “church-going, praying grandmother” Johnnie. She did not listen to the diss track. Johnnie prefers gospel or jazz, her granddaughter told BuzzFeed News.
Raven said she isn’t even sure her grandmother knows who Nicki or Remy are.
But if you ever asked Johnnie to sincerely think about another person hurting and keep them in her prayers — even if they are a stranger — “she definitely will, no matter what,” Raven said.
So when Raven reacted to the diss track, joking to people attending church on Sunday to make sure “y’all put Nicki on your prayer request in the morning,” her grandmother saw it and thought it was a real friend of Raven’s in need. She immediately responded and said she “absolutely will” pray for “Nicki” at church.
“I’m sure she probably thought [Nicki and Remy] are my friends or something,” Raven said. “She is very involved at church and has been most of her life.”
