After a long social media hiatus, Nicki Minaj has returned to the Internet with goal - not only to release two new singles, "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li", but to discuss her complicated association with Cardi B, starting with the controversy surrounding her verse on "Motorsport".
"When I first came in the game, if a female of that stature had done a feature with me on it, I would only be singing their praises and saying, "Thank you, ' " Minaj said".
Further solidifying their truce, Minaj called for her beloved fans to stop flooding Quavo's comment section with hate.
The "Anaconda" hitmaker shared: "I was like, 'Hey, can you back me up on this?" So I texted Quavo and said can you back me up on this because what do I have to lie about and he didn't back me up. What do I have to lie about?'
Nicki also accused Cardi of failing to show her the respect she deserves.More news: Keys: Wild at Jets, Game 2

Several parts of Minaj's verse were changed, but the publication claims that the one change Cardi was most upset with was the line "If Cardi B the QB/ I'm Nick Lombardi", where Cardi's name was altered to mention Migos rapper Quavo instead.
Rumours of a feud between Nicki and Cardi, 25, have been circulating for months.
So, it's safe to say that Minaj has returned to safeguard her spot in Hip-Hop as she braggadocios-ly raps on the new features, but simultaneously tells Beats 1 host Zane Lowe that her upcoming LP contains music that all "women really need right now", period.
Cardi B has yet to respond. "And, you know, congratulations to her".
