Nicki Minaj admits being caught in Drake and Meek feud was the 'hardest part' of her career
Drake and Nicki had been very good friends while she was dating Meek and cared about him dearly and their feud was making her worried.
Nicki Minaj opened up about being in a tough position when she had to choose between the two people she loved and cared the most about in her life. Sitting down with Zane Lowe for his Beats 1 radio show on Apple music, Nicki confessed that the beef between Drake and Meek Mill had been "one of the hardest parts of my career”.
The two rappers were feuding due to comments that dated back to 2015. It all started when Meek accused Drake of not writing his own raps. This was the start of cryptic messages, diss tracks and various comments. While the two had their own feud going on, they did not realize that Nicki happened to be at the center of an unflattering argument. “I did love both of them. I couldn’t erase the love I had for my team, but I also couldn’t speak out,” she said, explaining, “I felt imprisoned in that moment.”
Drake and Nicki had been very good friends while she was dating Meek and cared about him dearly. She did not like the idea of seeing two people she liked, not liking each other. In fact, Nicki thought that it would be best to talk to Drake about the situation because she did not want things to turn from bad to worse.
However, she recalled Drake telling that he was only worried about the relationship they shared. She said Drake told her, “I wasn’t worried about anything other than, ‘What if Nicki takes a shot at me, then what? What if Nicki spits bars at me, then what?”
Nicki admitted that she wasn't happy about the feud and did not want it to prolong any further. "Throughout the whole beef, he said that was what he was only worried about. It was difficult to stay out of it. I wish it never happened," she recalled. "Even prior to it happening I tried to stop it. I told [Meek], ‘Stop it, don’t do that.’ We always look back on things we shouldn’t have done. That’s one of those things he shouldn’t have done, and I told him, but he did it anyway."
Nicki, however, admitted that things have changed between the two has the beef is in the past and the rappers have moved on. “Meek and Drake have moved on from that, we all moved on," she said. Nicki confessed that even though Drake and she didn't speak much, he knew she cared about him. Even when there were things happening and I couldn’t speak to him, he felt the love I’ll always have for him,” she said.
