Nicki Minaj opened up about the ongoing feud between Meek Mill and Drake, calling it “ridiculous,” in an interview with the New York Times Magazine’s Culture issue. The “Anaconda” singer said it has been very difficult for her as her boyfriend and label partner battled.
"They're men, grown-a-- men," Minaj said. "It's between them ... I hate it. It doesn't make me feel good. You don't ever want to choose sides between people you love. It's ridiculous. I just want it to be over."
Last month, Minaj and Mill addressed the Philadelphia rapper’s beef with Drake in an interview with GQ magazine. Minaj said at the time that she didn’t necessarily agree with Mill’s decision to accuse Drake of using a ghostwriter for one of his tracks.
Mill and Drake’s rivalry began on July 21 after the "All Eyes on You" rapper took to Twitter and told people not to compare him with Drake because he doesn't write his own rap songs. Drake responded by releasing two diss songs, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” while Mill fired back with "Wanna Know."
Rumors circulated that the Mill-Drake feud was because of their relationships with Minaj. Some reports said Drake was jealous that Mill and Minaj were having a healthy relationship. The feud also gave rise to rumors that Minaj was breaking up with Mill. However, the 32-year-old posted several PDA-filled photos with Mill on her Instagram account to slam the reports, and also sparked pregnancy rumors after calling Mill “my baby father.”
Walka gave rise to speculation of collaboration with Mill after he posted an artwork on his Instagram account late Sunday.
The row intensified after some songs in Drake’s mixtape with Future, titled “What a Time to Be Alive,” allegedly took aim at the “House Party” rapper and Minaj.
