Nicki Minaj is revealing why she felt hurt by Cardi B. Now, the rapper is coming for the haters, directly addressing the long-rumored beef with Cardi B. But Nicki Minaj added her own fuel to those rumors during a live interview today with Zane Lowe to promote her new music. During her interview with Lowe, Nicki addressed the constant comparisons with Cardi B, suggesting that it was only recently that her would-be-nemesis paid her the respect she feels is due.

Minaj tried to clear the air and explain how MotorSport came about, but people called her a liar.

Cardi has not commented on Nicki's remarks. This was months after he and Nicki had broken up, but it's still obviously very important to her. "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".

Nicki also spoke about how Cardi may have disrespected her by not being more respectful about her career and stature when prompted in interviews. They'll allow people to run with the lie because it's entertaining to let Nicki seem like a bad guy and it's sad. "If Cardi the QB, I'm Nick Lombardi", she raps. And I'm not saying that in a cocky way but like *sniffs* Yikes. "And I felt so imprisoned in that moment", she said.

Today, Akademiks played the said verse in question on his channel and indeed, the verse is different from the one we heard on the final version. First up, she released "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li", the latter of which is a nod to a character from the Street Fighter series. "I get into more detail on the documentary I'm shooting, and the album". She said that she was told that Nicki could not shoot that day.

The last part of verse 2 is even more harsh, with lines like "Had to f*ck up the b*tch, man, f*ck the b*tch / Won't shoot her but I will gun-butt the b*tch / When we say "F*ck the b*tch" d*ck-up the b*tch / She was stuck-up so my ni**as stuck up the b*tch". That is, however, just one white dude's guess as to what she's really saying. [Migos'] Quavo told me to get on the song, and I just felt it was a ideal opportunity for me to be on a track that's big like them. And up until this recent interview she did [with Ebro Darden for Beats 1], I had never seen her show me genuine love in an interview. "This is the best album in my life that I've ever created".
