Nicki Minaj stopped by the Breakfast Club and talked candidly about being seemingly the most hated on woman in hip hop. While a certain Queen Bee has found a second career in dissing the Young Money starlet, Nicki told DJ Envy she’s not losing sleep over anyone else’s issues.
“I don’t go at nobody, Envy. I don’t say anything to them,” she said. “What’s so interesting is that you guys always think I’m talking to somebody in particular. A lot of times, I’ll be talking to people y’all have no idea I’m talking to, which is interesting,” she said. “I’m good, and when I say that, I mean I’m not writing records about any girls in the game past or present, I wish you the best. And I really mean that. We went at it, the best woman won and I’m ready to move on. People make it a bigger deal than I make it.”
“I don’t worry about that stuff as much as you guys worry about it. I’m having fun,” she continued. “For my first album, I wasn’t really having fun. I was still figuring myself out as an artist, I was too busy caring about what critics thought. Now, I’m actually enjoying myself. So in terms of the girls, I said before, when a door opens for me, that means you just got another opportunity to do you. I told Charlamagne, in order for my theory to prove right, these girls have to come in the game and now get deals because of Nicki Minaj. I said this would happen. If these girls don’t like me, that’s fine. But watch your mouth.”
“I always did [pay respect,]” she says. “I bowed down to everybody. I gave everybody their props, because I really believed that you guys opened doors for me and y’all did y’all thing. But when people start going at me, I think a lot of people thought I was going to crumble when people started going at me. People don’t know how I’m built.”
