Last week, Nicki Minaj released tracks “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” after a brief hiatus away from the spotlight.
Both tracks were premiered by Beats 1 Radio host Zane Lowe, who goes into depth with Minaj her relationship with Meek Mill, friction with Cardi B and the reason she took a time-out from social media.
Speaking on Cardi B, she said:
“She’s done exactly what she should have done. She’s gone full steam ahead. Congratulations to her. The only thing with Cardi that really, really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out. I remember when I first came in the game, if a female of that stature had done a feature with me on it, I would only be singing their praises and saying thank you. The first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out, it just really hurt me. She looked so aggravated and angry. The only thing she kept saying was, ‘I didn’t hear that verse. She changed her verse.’ I was like, ‘What?’ I remember when I first did a song with Trina for the first time, that’s why ’til this day, I love Trina. She’s the first female rapper that acknowledged me behind the scenes…You’ve never heard me speak ill of Trina because of that. That’s very important. Her most recent interview, Cardi, that’s when I came back on Instagram, I saw it, and I finally felt like she said something genuinely nice about me. But ‘MotorSport,’ I kinda felt ambushed.”
