VIDEO: Nicki Minaj Speaks On Problems With Cardi B and Quavo
Nicki Minaj dropped two new singles, “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz” while she was on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show. During the interview, Nicki Minaj shared that she stepped away from social media to concentrate on her new album and that she’s also dropping a documentary on Apple Music in the near future. Minaj claims that her new album is the best material she ever made.
“I needed to focus on my album. This is the best album I’ve ever ever ever created,” she said.
Nicki recounted the making of “MotorSport,” which she previously outlined. She recalled Quavo texting her, “Is it OK to put Cardi on it?” She told Lowe that she replied, “Yeah, let’s do it.” Migos later shared a behind-the-scenes preview of the “MotorSport” video and social media attacked Nicki for not being in the clip and for not being in the same scenes with Cardi when the full video was dropped. Nicki explained to Lowe that she had a scheduling conflict when the video shoot happened and how she was hurt that nobody attempted to “clear the air,” specifically calling out Quavo, who she asked directly for help.
“With ‘MotorSport,’ I kinda felt ambushed,” Nicki says. “I love Quavo, and at the time, on Twitter, I explained how ‘Motorsport’ came about, and you know, people were saying that I was lying. So I texted Quavo and I said, ‘Hey, just, you know, could you back me up on this because I don’t want people to think I’m lying.’ What do I have to lie about? And he didn’t back me up. He texted me, and he was like, ‘I would go on Twitter and back you up if you were my girl lol.’ And that hurt, because he’s somebody—I love him.”
During the emotional discussion, Nicki elaborated on the situation. “And you still did interviews just to paint Nicki as the bad person. And play the victim. And that really, really hurt me because I really fully supporting [Cardi B],” Minaj said. “And up until this recent interview she did, I had never seen her show love in an interview genuinely. And I can only imagine how many girls wished they could’ve been on a song with Nicki Minaj.”
What do you think? Is Nicki being a hypocrite? Did she show the female rappers before her love? Let us know.
