The 15th episode of Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio show was a spicy one, featuring rapper Joe Budden and his podcast co-hosts Rory and Mal.
Recall that Budden has been embroiled in a beef with Minaj, and it continued during the episode. Minaj spoke about how she agreed to collaborate with Megan Thee Stallion on “Hot Girl Summer” on Instagram Live, but Budden believed the IG Live was all part of the track’s rollout to increase hype surrounding the record.
The conversation then shifted to the controversy surrounding Nicki Minaj and Cardi B both assisting on the Migos’ “MotorSport” single. Minaj pulled up a clip of Budden from Everyday Struggle to prove he believed that Nicki didn’t know Cardi would also be appearing on the record. Then things took a shocking turn when Nicki confronted him for accusing her of using drugs and pills last summer.
“Your entire last album did that. Your past is littered with it. Who gives a fuck what she pop? But don’t sit here and act like you’ve never popped a pill,” Joe quipped. To which she replied: “Are you that fucking dumb? You like tearing down women when they can’t defend themselves.”
Budden’s mic was then cut off and he walked out. But the interview continued with Mal and Rory. “He’s so used to thinking he’s the smartest person in the room,” Nicki finished.
