Joe Budden Pushes Back On Nicki Minaj's Narrative That He Tears Down Women

"I don’t understand where that comes from."

(AllHipHop News) The Queen Radio/Joe Budden Podcast crossover event has been providing Hip Hop news content all week. Nicki Minaj verbal beat down of Budden on her Beats 1 show went uber-viral on Monday.

At one point, Nicki began yelling at Joe for his previous accusations that she was publicly acting erratic because of drug use. The "Pills n Potions" rapper told Budden, "You like tearing down women when they can't defend themselves. You like tearing down women when you can try to end their career because you're low-key jealous of their success."

Budden was asked about Minaj's comments during an interview with Variety. He said, "That’s such a false narrative, I don’t understand where [it] comes from and it shouldn’t be created. I was raised by a single mom. I was raised to believe — and I still believe — that women are the greatest creatures on this f*cking earth. The greatest. I don’t understand where that comes from."

The emcee-turned-media personality added, "There’s nothing to defend, I wouldn’t even dignify it. What conversation are we having? It has to be with someone who isn’t familiar with me… I’m not really perception-based. I’m black and white. If it’s true, great. If not, ya’ll have a blast with it as long as it’s not altering anything. That couldn’t be further from the truth."

Budden also said he was not upset that Nicki called him a liar. Plus, the New Jersey native took ownership for his part in their dispute over the creation of Migos' "MotorSport" song featuring Minaj and Cardi B. However, Budden doubled down on his view that there is a difference between him suggesting Nicki was lying about the situation and him choosing not to believe her version of what happened.

Following the heated back-and-forth on Queen Radio, Joe sat down with the Trinidad and Tobago-born rapstress for his own digital show. There was yet another fiery moment where Nicki screamed at The Joe Budden Podcast co-host Rory Farrell.
