Nicki Minaj got embroiled in an argument with rapper Joe Budden on Queen Radio.
The pair clashed after Budden spoke out about Minaj’s alleged drug use and the details behind her latest single.
They have a history of unpleasantness and it wasn’t long before old feelings surfaced and they began arguing on air.
Budden suggested that Minaj may have been taking drugs during the production of her collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, entitled Hot Girl Summer.
The track was released last week and Budden attacked the fact an Instagram Live had been published with Minaj’s collaborator.
Appearing alongside his The Joe Budden Podcast co-hosts Rory and Mal, Budden said the live broadcast was set up to increase anticipation around the song.
He said: “I think that the music industry is calculated.”
The discussion then shifted to Minaj’s album, Queen, released a year ago.
Budden then suggested Minaj may have been taking drugs during its production, provoking a furious response.
She said: “You like tearing down women when they can’t defend themselves.”
Minaj added “He’s so used to thinking he’s the smartest person in the room,” before kicking him off the show.
After the confrontation, 36-year-old Minaj then went on to reveal when she is planning to tie the knot with Kenneth Petty.
Nevertheless, Minaj has said that she will marry him within the next 80 days, as she revealed that she will be married before her next album is released.
She said: “I’ll be married before my album comes out, but I’ll probably have my wedding after my album comes out.”
Early in her career Minaj claimed to be bisexual, but eventually clarified her sexuality in a Rolling Stone interview saying she just did that to get attention: “I think girls are sexy, but I’m not going to lie and say that I date girls.”
In late 2014, Nicki Minaj separated from her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels, whom she had dated since 2000. Several tracks on The Pinkprint are believed to have been inspired by the end of their relationship. Minaj began dating rapper Meek Mill in early 2015. On January 5, 2017, she announced via Twitter that she had ended their two-year relationship.
