Nicki Minaj Voices Opinion on Drake and Chris Brown Altercation
If anyone knows a thing or two about beef it’s Nicki Minaj. The Queens-bred rapper has had her fair share of public spats with Lil’ Kim, but they’ve never led to a physical altercation like in the case of her fellow Young Money member Drake, who reportedly went to blows with Chris Brown. In an interview with Tim Westwood, the Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded creator shared her thoughts on the beef between the two men, which erupted into a fight earlier this month.
“Young Money till the death of me,” she said when asked about Drizzy and Breezy’s spat. “I don’t approve of talented people doing things that… aren’t conducive to an amazing career.”
The 29-year-old head Barb revealed that she had a conversation with Drake regarding the fight at W.i.P. nightclub in New York City.
“I spoke to Drake and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt,” she disclosed. “I’m like, ‘Baby, you are a superstar and I need you to realize that.’ He did nothing wrong, of course, and rumors are rumors and that’s what it is, but I told him it’s time to remember who you are.”
Minaj, who kicks off the U.S. leg of her Pink Friday tour July 16 at The Chicago Theatre in Chicago, advised the Toronto MC to walk away or “have an early nap” when things begin to escalate in the future.
