Nicki Minaj Hurt By Cardi B: I Felt Ambushed

Nicki Minaj opened up about her drama with Cardi B during the rapper’s new interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.

Nicki Minaj opened up about her drama with Cardi B during the rapper’s new interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.

Nicki made a huge return today (April 12) when she dropped two new songs – “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” – listen to them here.

She introduced the world to her latest raps by dropping by Beats 1. She confirmed a new album and tour is in the works, and also touched on her beef(?) with Cardi B.

 

 

A bit of backstory… Cardi was less than enthusiastic in interviews when asked about her and Nicki’s involvement on their Migos collaboration, “MotorSport.” Zane asked for Nicki to clarify whether a verse from a leaked snippet was aimed at Cardi or not. Nicki appeared stunned at that, but said she wrote those lyrics a year-and-a-half before Cardi hopped on. She wishes Cardi would have shown more appreciation. 

“I remember when I first came in the game… I would only be singing their praises and saying thank you.” Nicki said. “The first interview she did, it just hurt me because she looked so aggravated and angry. She just kept saying she didn’t hear it…. I was like, What?”

Nicki also said a scheduling conflict blocked her from personally appearing with Cardi and Migos in the video.

“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 supported her [Cardi B]. And up until this recent interview she did [with Ebro Darden for Beats 1], I had never seen her show me genuine love in an interview. And I can only imagine how many girls wished they could’ve been on a song with Nicki Minaj.”
