Nicki Minaj finally addresses the rumors.
Migos released the first single off of Culture II this past Friday with "Motor Sport." The single was a heavy hitter but the conversation around the single had more to do with the fact that supposed arch nemesis, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, were speculated to diss each other on the track. Several notable people chimed in, including Joe Budden during Monday's episode of "Everyday Struggle." Joe said he speculates the song was initially a collaboration between Migos and Cardi B and Kanye West was the one who actually pitched the idea of getting Nicki Minaj on it. However, Nicki hit Twitter to clarify the speculations and conspiracies.
In a series of tweets, Nicki Minaj finally addressed the conspiracy theories surrounding her latest guest feature. First, she stated that "Motor Sport" was initially a collaboration between herself and Quavo.
"I was on the song w/Quavo. No one else was on it. He called & asked if I think we should put Bardi on it, I said “ok let’s do it”. The end," she said, "Migos weren’t even on it yet. Just Quavo. The conspiracy theories r just so tired. Relax. Breathe. Imagine me not knowing who on a song w/me."
During the summer, Nicki Minaj posted a video of her and Quavo on the set of a music video shoot. They didn't disclose what song they were shooting for but she insisted that it would be "your favorite new song that you ain't hear yet."
Later on, she stated anything with her name on it must get her stamp of approval before being released.
"Anything w/my name on it gets approved by me. It can’t even go on a streaming service w/o me hearing it & giving written approval." she said.
During her last tweet, she doesn't mention Joe's name but it's clear that his comments on "Everyday Struggle" got back to her. She said, "These are men in our culture who simply refuse to let it go. They don’t do this to male M.C.’s. But yo #Motorsport #1 added on urban radio."
Either way, both Cardi B and Nicki Minaj killed the track and the drama seems blown out of proportion at this point.
