Nicki Minaj And Joe Budden Have Heated Exchange On Queen Radio


Nicki Minaj and Joe Budden had a heated face-to-face conversation during a recent episode of her Queen Radio show. On Monday (August 12th), Nicki featured Budden and his “Joe Budden Podcast” co-hosts Rory and Mal. During the conversation, Nicki confronted Joe about things he may have said about her in the past. 

She said, “One of the things we’re gonna address with Joe Budden is the amount of times that he has called me a liar about stuff that I wasn’t lying about. I said, I’m a lot of things, but liar is not one of them.” 

According to Rap-Up, Joe accused Nicki and Megan Thee Stallion of embellishing their Instagram Live session to make it appear as if it was impromptu. The rapper, however, says that Nicki and Megan already recorded the collab, “Hot Girl Summer,” and the IG Live was a part of their roll out, while Nicki said it was an organic IG Live session. 

Nicki asked Joe, “What makes you think that that was a planned Live and that we already had a song done and that was wicked witch from the west Nicki planning stuff and being calculated and stuff?” He then responded, “I think that you are more brand aware than that line leads to believe. I think you’ve carried yourself to be more conscious of not only your stardom, but your impact on other people’s careers, especially new artists. So to see that and for it to come off as organic as y’all would have us believe, then y’all went into telling us how organic it was and that is Music Industry 101 for me.” 

Nicki insisted that the Live was not planned, saying, “By the time we got off Live, it had to be like 2 o’clock in the morning. When I heard the song, I loved the song and I just wrote the song right then and there. That’s exactly what happened.” Joe then questioned how the video for the record was shot so soon after the song was released. Nicki replied, “Even after I said what I said, he is still interrogating me. Even after I’ve said over and over what really happened, he’s still insinuating that there’s no way. Now there’s a new reason.”

Joe responded, “Nicki Minaj is inserting words in my mouth. Prior to speaking with you, I went on my platform and said what I believed. Then I spoke to you and you said what happened. Then I come here and you say to explain why I think that, so that’s what I did.”

They then discussed the controversy regarding Migos’ “MotorSport,” record, with Joe saying he believed Nicki when she said that she didn’t know that Cardi B was initially going to be on the song. Nicki said, “Ya’ll went and told the world, ‘Nicki Minaj is lying.’ You said I didn’t know another b*tch was on the song and then I got mad. But I’m the all-powerful queen bee, right? You really think someone could put a song out with Onika Tanya Maraj and I don’t know who the who on the song?” 

Joe went on to try and ask if Nicki and Cardi were taking jabs at each other on the record, but Nicki responded, [You like tearing down people’s character when they can’t respond. You like tearing down women when they can’t defend themselves. You like tearing down women, when you can end their career ‘cause lowkey you’re jealous of their success."] SOUNDCUE (:12 OC . . . of their success)

She continued, [“You not gon’ change the subject. I’m asking you a f**king question. You used to dealing with stupid people, you’re not gonna outsmart me, sweetheart. I said I knew the b*tch was on the song, you said she didn’t know she was on the song.”] SOUNDCUE (:12 OC . . . on the song)

Joe also accused Nicki of using drugs in the past, saying, “Your entire last album did that. Your past is littered with it. Who gives a f**k what she popped? But don’t sit here and say you ain’t popped a f**king pill.” 

Nicki fired back, ["I never said that. I never said that you dumb f**k. I never said that you doubted f**k. N***a, are you that f**king dumb? Are you that f**king dumb you ain’t hear what the f**k I said. Cut his f**king mic since he wanna be f**king dumb. Now you wanna be f**king dumb, n***a. Now you wanna be f**king dumb. Stupid a**. F**k is wrong with you? Play it back. Did I say that?"] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC . . . I say that)

Budden later left the room and Nicki continued, “He’s so used to thinking he’s the smartest person in the f**king room. And not allowing people to speak and then when you find that you’re wrong about some sh*t, not saying, ‘D*mn. I was wrong. Maybe I did the most. Maybe I did say things about you that were proven wrong.’ Forget drugs, I just gave you two examples where you said something that was not true about me and you still riding with it.”


In other news, a member of Trina’s team has put Nicki on blast. Reginald Saunders, an A&R executive for Trina’s Rockstarr Music Group, said of  Nicki, “I want to address the issue so bad about this #BAPS record and VIDEO and it’s taking everything inside of me to remain quiet. This isn’t the first time @nickiminaj has pulled this stunt and trust me it’s cool. I can’t get over how fake people can be for a Lil fame , likes and followers.” 

He continued, “When everyone tried to warn me I still gave her the benefit of the doubt. I can’t wait to see how all of this is about to play out because you can’t stop karmas reign, shame on you .. I mostly feel sorry for the #barbs because they have no clue of the deceiver and manipulator their leader is.”

Nicki responded to Saunders and said, “Trina’s camp is saying I didn’t do enough to push the ‘BAPS’ video. Like, what the f**k!? Until you are no longer a human being you will always care. The people that I helped are the ones that start the narrative, so that’s the problem. And I can so much that I don’t. But I will say I’m not addressing men anymore, address my husband.”

Nicki and Trina recently collabed on a record called, “BAPS.”
