Over the summer, while Drake was serving up Meek Mill an ass whooping no one would have expected from the King of emo rap – Nicki Minaj was silent about the whole entire skirmish, not even so much as a tweet.
Even though she was the topic of discussion on Back To Back, when Drake used her super stardom as weapon to emasculate Meek Mill, she still did not say anything.
In reality Nicki could probably rap circles around both Meek and Drake in a battle, if it really came to a point where she needed to get involved. The beef has died down somewhat over the passed month or so but Back To Back is a hit record so that’s still happening.
A part from that though it’s been relatively quite, so I guess Nicki weighing on the issue now is a good a time as any.
You would think that due to the fact that she is in a relationship with Meek, that she would ride for him on general principle alone but that’s not the case. That’s not to say she’s siding with Drake either though.
Nicki is featured in this week’s edition of The New York Times Magazine and has finally given her brief two cents on the drama.
Addressing the Drake and Meek Mill Beef.
“They’re men, grown-ass men. It’s between them. How does it make you feel, I ask? I hate it. It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over. Is there a part of you that thrives on drama, or is it no, just pain and unpleasantness. That’s disrespectful! Why would a grown-ass woman thrive off drama? What do the four men you just named have to do with me thriving off drama?
Why would you even say that? That’s so peculiar. Four grown-ass men are having issues between themselves, and you’re asking me do I thrive off drama? That’s the typical thing that women do. What did you putting me down right there do for you? Women blame women for things that have nothing to do with them. I really want to know why — as a matter of fact, I don’t. Can we move on, do you have anything else to ask?”
On whether or not she has real issues with Miley Cyrus.
“The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, but you don’t want to know how black women feel about something that’s so important? Come on, you can’t want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.”
