Nicki Minaj is stirring up trouble on Twitter. The female rap superstar recently unveiled her latest studio album, Queen, over the weekend, and the artist isn't amused by Power 105.1's DJ Self for claiming Cardi B released the best rap album. As Nicki claimed in some since-deleted tweets, the DJ is just jealous that the female artist didn't give him proper attention earlier this year. Minaj also went so far as to call the radio personality a "reality TV hoe" and claimed he wasn't respected. Here's what Nicki Minaj said to DJ Self in the exchange.
The feud was pushed by DJ Self in an Instagram he posted and deleted before Nicki Minaj's tweet, according to XXL. In the DJ's Instagram post, he asked Minaj to talk to him after she was "really mad who got the best female album out now." And boy, did she ever. More than the radio personality maybe thought the musician would, most likely. Minaj can be ruthless when she's feuding, and she didn't provide any mercy to the Power 105.1 voice. As she claimed in the response above, Minaj believes DJ Self is just looking to get under Nicki Minaj's skin since she wouldn't respond to his requests.
But that wasn't the end of it. Once you get Nicki Minaj's started, she's going to bring hellfire. The artist claimed DJ Self was in the studio during her appearance on DJ Clue's show, claiming he was trying to hug her. That's what she believes that is what caused the hard feelings from DJ Self. She also claims the radio personality holds "no weight in the city" and made her attacks personal by bringing up this recent radio appearance diss.
And that wasn't the end of it either. Nicki Minaj went further by claiming DJ Self was also speaking unkindly about Cardi B in private, but he's not going to reveal what he said publicly. Minaj threatened to tell her followers what DJ Self said about Cardi B, souring his relationship with both female rappers.
Eventually, DJ Self did comment on Nicki Minaj's comments, claiming they were all fabricated and that she was only saying these things to promote her new studio album, which she has been trying to hype up since the spring. Evidently, these heated personalities might not find any peace anytime soon.
