Joe Budden doesn't believe Nicki Minaj.
Joe Budden is pretty good at rapping but he’s great at stirring the pot. That’s why Complex made the genius move to give him a platform to come for everyone else in the rap game on his show Everyday Struggle. He failed to disappoint on the most recent episode, calling out Nicki Minaj over her comments about Cardi B.
Joe Budden claimed the two had beef on an earlier episode, and Nicki responded to the rumors by retweeting a Cardi B tweet that quoted Nicki’s lyrics. “I see no lies when Bardi quotes Barbie,” she wrote. “All dat reaching you gon f*ck around and pull a muscle.”
DJ Akademiks said that he sees why Cardi would want to stay on Nicki’s good side. He implied that Nicki works behind the scenes to leverage her industry clout and squash anyone who speaks ill of her. He also said that he doesn’t believe that Nicki and Cardi aren’t beefing. Budden wasn’t having it. He still thinks there is beef between the two mega-watt MCs and he invited her on the show to sort it out.
“Nicki Minaj, I invite you to come sit up here. You’re too big of a megastar to continue to reply on Twitter and other social media platforms to everything somebody says,” stated Budden. “Come sit here and tell us yourself. I think you are a liar. That’s what I think.”
“I think you lied to us when you beefed with Remy… She lied to us when it was a beef with her and Drake that I called then. When has she ever been honest about any of her beefs?” he continued. “Would it be smart for Nicki Minaj — who is maybe not in the best shape professionally right now — to come at Cardi B? Or publically be so f*cking aggressive at coming at Cardi B when we all really love Cardi B?” he asked. “Who has Cardi B bothered? She ain’t hurt nobody. She ain’t said nothing about nobody. Nicki would look real nuts.”
“Take you and all of that glorified notoriety into the studio and hop on that record,” he said. “Why is that not happening? I have a reason. I can guess.”
Akademiks countered that Cardi might not want Nicki to suck the air out of her 1st big single. He also said that Nicki is in an unfair situation where people are pitting Cardi against Nicki after a single record when Minaj has held down the top spot in rap for a decade.
He also cited a recent and vague attack on someone from a recent concert. He made the connection that Cardi was talking about Nicki Minaj when she said she still doesn’t mess around with a random woman.
