With Nicki Minaj’s “Pinkprint” tour kicking off in Europe this month, the rapper checked into BBC Radio 1Xtra this week to discuss all things Nicki.
During the chat, she talked her relationship with Meek Mill, Lil Wayne’s $51 million lawsuit against Birdman, and whether or not Tyga was supposed to appear on “Truffle Butter.”
As for Meek, Nicki says: “We’re just super compatible and just be having fun together. When the kid do it, the kid get it done, nah mean?”
Regarding Lil Wayne and Birdman’s ongoing beef and $51 million lawsuit, she remained political regarding the situation, saying she hopes they can still work out their differences.
“I don’t think it’ll ever get to that point. People know that I love Wayne and I have loyalty towards him, but I love Baby too. I’m very close to Baby, and I don’t think people know that,” Nicki explained. “I am banking on the fact that they’re gonna work this out like family. They’ve gone through things before just like family does and it is what it is. They gonna get through it. I’m not even gonna think that way.”
Tyga previously claims he was supposed to be on her single, “Truffle Butter,” but didn’t make the final cut. Apparently, she said he was never meant to be on it in the first place.
“We don’t know how, but it magically ended up in Tyga’s hands. I told him, I was like, ‘You know that’s my song,’ ” Nicki says. “Low and behold, it leaked with him on it after I told him not to put it out and I thought that was a little bit disrespectful ’cause I had always shown him love. I had always done stuff with him, took him on tour with me, and I thought it was disrespectful ’cause I am the queen of Young Money.
“He [texted me saying], ‘You always were there for me.’ And I respected him for saying that because one thing about me, I’m a very forgiving person,” she said. “But as long as you can come to your senses after the fact and remember who looks out for you and who was there and who supports you, then it’s all good. He’s entitled to make a mistake every now and then, and we handled it as such.”
Despite the disagreement, Nicki says she has no ill will toward Tyga. “It’s all good, I ain’t mad at all.”
