Following a combative exchange on Queen Radio, thing however got a lil calmer between Joe Budden and Nicki Minaj when she joined Budden and his co-hosts for the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast on Wednesday. Nicki had some choice words for Rick Ross when Mal asked her who she thought was the better rapper between Rozay and The Game.“Don’t bring up that… Don’t get me fuckin’ started. Anybody that name drops a female to sell 250 albums, don’t ever bring them up to me again,” she said. “Outside of that, I look at people being stand up ni**as and I look at who fold quick and who do clown shit for attention when they dropping an album. I won’t even go there.”

“I went and sat down in a meeting with Obama, President Obama and Ross was there and texted dude after the meeting like, ‘Yo, this chick is a keeper,'” Nicki told Budden. “I saw the text myself with my own eyes. ‘This chick is a keeper. She went in a room full of rappers and spoke to Obama and the first thing out of her mouth was about you and figuring out your probation situation and why you’re still on probation after all these years.’ And then you come out on an album when it’s time to sell some weak ass fucking album and try to disrespect Nicki Minaj. What?”
The song in question appeared on Ross’ 2017 album, Rather You Than Me. On the song, Ross raps, “I told Meek I wouldn’t trust Nicki/Instead of beefin’ with your dog, you just give ’em some distance.” At the time of the album’s release, Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj’s much-publicized relationship had already ended.
