Nicki Minaj might as well add radio host to her repertoire. The New York rapper has been hitting Beats 1 all month, slowly revealing details surrounding her first album in four years, Queen. On Tuesday, she led a two-hour broadcast, airing her grievances with Travis Scott, even giving him a questionably name award for "Cocksucker of the Day" for what she thinks is a manipulation for his position at number one with ASTROWORLD. Today, she continued her generous streak, giving out the same award Irving Azoff, an executive at Ticketmaster.
The name may not ring a bell to your average fan, but Minaj alleges that Azoff, who manages Travis Scott, started a smear campaign against her NickiHndrxx Tour. "There's never been a queen in the history of this world who hasn't ruffled feathers," she said. "There's never been a black queen who hasn't been told she's not angry or bitter." After taking issue with Travis Scott's bundle packages for ASTROWORLD, Minaj released a Queen package of her own.
The rapper addresses the media speculation for her discourse on Twitter recently. "I keep seeing this word rant, I'm having the time of my life," she says. On today's Queen Radio, Minaj hinted at a Jason Derulo collaboration and says the "Barbie Dreams" video will be directed by Hype Williams. "It's going to be one of those iconic videos, for sure." After news spread yesterday about the delay of the US leg of her upcoming tour, she makes note that only she received negativity although Future was a co-headliner. Today's episode was a scaled down, in comparison to the last one, with witty banter on sex and relationships. We hope you brought your headphones because Nicki is definitely NSFW.
