(AllHipHop News) He appeared on a special edition of her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and has even gone so far as to call himself a Barb – one of Nicki’s superfans. Apparently, the love is no longer mutual.
During an interview on The Breakfast Club with Nicki’s rival Lil Kim, Charlamagne revealed that he and the Young Money rapper were no longer cool. The outspoken radio host further explained the situation with Nicki during his Brilliant Idiots podcast.
I got mad love for Nicki Minaj even though she ain’t f**king with me right now. She unfollowed me on Twitter. She made calls to people in radio, people that I work for, and said she’s never coming on The Breakfast Club again.
I know she got upset when I said “‘Anaconda” was corny. My exact synopsis on “Anaconda” when it first came out was I’m not really feeling this record. It’s not for me. It’s for girls. It’s for kids. It’s for people who like to shake their ass. I said when the video comes out, I will probably appreciate this song more. But then I said, “It’s going to work. I just think it’s corny.”
Charlemagne goes on to suggest that his comments about Iggy Azalea deserving the BET Award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist this year may have upset Nicki as well. He also recalls saying that she was “The King of New York” after seeing her performance at Summer Jam.
Apparently, Nicki’s “stans” also had an issue with Charlamagne and The Breakfast Club for their interview with Kim, because the Barbs thought the conversation was biased against Nicki. Charlamagne expressed that his job is to not show favoritism to any artist and fans cannot get upset at the radio show for giving Kim a platform to discuss Nicki.
