Nicki Minaj is in full comeback mode this week. The hip-hop heavy weight is busy doing the rounds via social media in support of the re-release of her breakthrough mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty. The set contains a mix of highlights from the original project as well as new records including “Crocodile Teeth”, “Seeing Green” and “Fractions”. Drake and Wayne also make appearances. Fans and critics have gotten to work dissecting every picture and video she’s released to coincide with the project dropping last Friday.
We reported yesterday on Azealia Banks who was very vocal about her thoughts on Nicki’s return and “new appearance”. The two MC’s share a complicated history, with Azealia taking shots at Nicki several times throughout her career with next no response from the “Super Bass” hitmaker. Speaking on Minaj latest comeback Banks feels like it simply did not “give what needed to be gave”.
It appears Banks was not the only one alarmed by Minaj’s sniffling, as several people took to social media to express concerns that Minaj may be on ‘something.’ The rapper has had quiet the last 12 months, despite become a wife and welcoming her first child she also saw her brother locked up for life and her father loss his life in a hit and run. Despite all of that she took to social media today to let fans know that she’s definitely not doing coke.
“I have a lot of friends or acquaintances in the industry who do coke” she said. “I don’t judge them for it but I’ve never tried it, never wanted to, never asked them to. Especially in the fashion world, thats so common and normal, but yes, that’s the thing, when people used to lie about me I never used to clear my name and there was someone who took a major step and told that lie to people and I never addressed it because I thought it was too ridiculous at the time to address but something just told me to now.”
The rapper stated “I don’t know if its just me, but I wouldn’t be embarrassed about any MF drugs I did… that’s why I talk about the MF drugs I do in my MF Music. Always have and always MF will.. If off ’em, I’m off em, Chile, but I want to make this clear […] I have never EVER in my life with my hand to Jesus Christ and y’all know how I feel about by lord and savior – NEVER in my life EVER, not even once, sniffed coke. EVER!”
