Nicki Minaj spoke with BBC Radio’s own Charlie about Tyga being behind leaking the single Truffle Butter featuring Drake and Lil Wayne… She tells him: “Somehow it magically got into Tyga’s hands”
She doesn’t hold any ill will towards her Young Money labelmate. “It’s all good, I ain’t mad at all.”
While she was willing to speak on Tyga, she brushed off a question about Chris Brown’s alleged 9-month-old daughter. “I don’t have any thoughts on another man’s child,” said Nicki.
Her tour launches March 16 in Sweden. “We’re gonna bring an amazing show and I cannot freakin’ wait for [the Barbz] to give me their energy.”
She also weighed in on Lil Wayne and Birdman’s ongoing beef. Weezy has filed a $51 million lawsuit against the Cash Money boss and wants to take his artists including Drake and Nicki off the label, but Nicki remains optimistic that they can work out their differences.
“I don’t think it’ll ever get to that point. People know that I love Wayne and I have loyalty towards him, but I love Baby too. I’m very close to Baby, and I don’t think people know that,” she said. “I am banking on the fact that they’re gonna work this out like family. They’ve gone through things before just like family does and it is what it is. They gonna get through it. I’m not even gonna think that way.”
Nicki and Meek have been packing on the PDA lately, and she confirmed that the two are more than friends. “We’re just super compatible and just be having fun together. When the kid do it, the kid get it done, nah mean?”
She is unsure if there will be a video for “Truffle Butter,” which is the No. 1 urban and rhythmic song in the U.S. “When a song is that successful without a video, I don’t really know if we need one,” she said. “It was just for the streets, for the love, and we weren’t really gonna shoot a video, to be honest.”
Even though Tyga denies ever touching or leaking the single, he apologized to her for stuff he did and said in other interviews and magazine articles. Listen to the full interview
