Nicki is back on the scene after going ghost for a few months to record her new album. Last week, she dropped two new singles and did an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio on Apple Music where she opened up about a bunch of stuff and get some other stuff off her chest including her issues with Cardi B. She also opened up about Meek Mill legal troubles and his infamous beef with Drake in 2015 that spilled over in 2016.
At the time of the beef, Nicki Minaj was at the center having being labelmate and close friends with Drake and dating Meek Mill. That put her in a peculiar position that she didn’t want to be in. She described it as one of the hardest parts of her career. Nicki Minaj also recalled reuniting with Drake after breaking up with Meek Mill and he telling her that the entire time during the beef the only thing he was worried about is she dissing him in a diss track. She also thinks that Meek shouldn’t have started the beef with Drake.
“I was behind the scenes, wishing it wouldn’t happen,” Nicki recalls. “I said, ‘Don’t do that.’ I think, as artists, we all look back on things that we shouldn’t have done.”
Nicki Minaj added that the two artists have since moved on from the beef but they both occasionally send subliminal shots at each other in their new music. “What I do know is that Meek and Drake have moved on from that,” she said.
Nicki Minaj is getting ready to drop her forthcoming album and perhaps she will address the Meek Mill and Drake situation more or perhaps not. Nevertheless, it’s good to hear her perspective on what really went down.
