Never one to back down from a good fight (see “Miley, what’s good?”), Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to get in Giuseppe Zanotti’s ass after the Italian designer debuted a new sneaker collection with her name but didn’t pay the curvy rapper any coins.

Zanotti’s new “Nicki” sneakers retail for $675 and are “pink python-printed leather low-top sneaker.” (At least it wasn’t pink anaconda ... )

Yet unlike his collaborations with other artists such as Jennifer Lopez and singer Zayn, the designer reportedly denied Minaj’s collaboration requests and wouldn’t even take her (agency’s) calls.

“Recently when he gave other artists capsule collections, my agency reached out and was told they’re not taking our call,” Minaj tweeted.


She then accused the designer of racism and disrespect and encouraged her Barbz (fans) to let the world know with the hashtag #GiuseppeWhatsGood?

Minaj even put up a poll asking if Zanotti should #RunMeMyCHECK or #RunMeMyMuFknCHECKMyNIG (by the way, “MyNIG” won).


Even “Tom Ford” got in on the action:


So, um, Giuseppe, what’s good?
