Quavo opens up about Nicki Minaj dropping his name in "Barbie Dreamz."
Upon the release of Nicki Minaj's Queen, the track "Barbie Dreamz" caught everyone's attention. It was an immediate highlight for numerous reasons. Hip hop purists appreciated her take on Biggie's "Just Playing (Dreams)" but the rest of the world was more concerned about the rapper's that she listed off. We've heard reactions from 50 Cent and other rappers but Quavo recently spoke to Nessa and shared his thoughts on the Queen highlight.
Quavo didn't get too deep into his thoughts about Nicki Minaj's "Barbie Dreamz" but he did say that he laughed when he heard it. The rapper's name was mentioned in reference to Karreuche who he was once rumored to be romantically linked to. "Somebody go and make sure Karreuche okay though/ I heard she think I'm tryna give the coochie to Quavo," she said on he first verse. Quavo revealed that he heard the album before it dropped but Nicki never showed him "Barbie Dreamz."
"I guess I'm surprised as the rest of y'all," Quavo said in response to whether he was aware about the line. "I heard the album before it dropped but I didn't hear that record."
While Nicki and Quavo are clearly on good terms these days, she revealed there was friction between them during the Cardi B "Motorsport" feud. After Nicki Minaj explained how "Motorsport" came about, she said she asked Quavo to help her clear things up on Twitter. She said that he told her he'd only back her up if she was his girl.
Clearly, things are smooth between the two these days. Peep the interview below.
