Nicki Minaj sat down with Zane Lowe for a candid Beats 1 Interview. She admitted to not being happy about how Cardi B and Quavo handled “MotorSport.”
“The only thing with Cardi that really, really, really hurt me was the first interview [Cardi B] did after the first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out, it just really hurt me,” Nicki tells Lowe. “‘Cause she looked so aggravated and angry and the only thing she kept saying was, ‘Oh, I didn’t hear that verse, I didn’t hear that verse. She changed her verse.'”
Nicki also mentioned that she had seen Cardi say some nice things about later.
“With ‘MotorSport,’ I kinda felt ambushed. I love Quavo, and at the time, on Twitter, I explained how ‘Motorsport’ came about, and you know, people were saying that I was lying. So I texted Quavo and I said, ‘Hey, just, you know, could you back me up on this because I don’t want people to think I’m lying. What do I have to lie about?” He texted me, and he was like, ‘I would go on Twitter and back you up if you were my girl lol.’ And that hurt, because he’s somebody—I love him.”
