Charlamagne Tha God bumps gums with Brilliant Idiots about Nicki Minaj and why she’s pissed at him. He said that Minaj stopped talking to him because of his opinion for her latest single, Anaconda. Charlamagne revealed during an interview with Lil’ Kim last week that he fell out with Minaj.
During Charlamagne’s Brilliant Idiots podcast, he explained what happened between the two. Charlamagne claims Minaj didn’t appreciate him publicly criticizing Anaconda as being a “corny” record for chicks and kids.
Minaj also didn’t like that he thought Iggy Azalea should’ve been crowned Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the BET Awards this year. Check out an excerpt from the interview below.
Charlamagne: Me and Nicki Minaj, I got mad love for Nicki Minaj even though she ain’t f-cking with me right now, she unfollowed me on Twitter and she’s made calls to people in radio, people that I worked for, and said she’s never coming to the Breakfast Club again-
Schulz: she did that?
Charlamagne: Oh yeah man. Oh yeah.
Schulz: Oh, I’m so upset right now. I’m so upset. Do not call yourself “a boss” and all this other sh*t if you’re going to go and give a f*cking Yelp review on a radio DJ. Get the f*ck outta here with this sh-t dude.
Charlamagne: But this is what I’m saying. I know she got upset when I said I thought ‘Anaconda is corny,’ My exact synopsis on ‘Anaconda’ when it first came out was, ‘I’m not feeling this record. It’s not for me. It’s for girls. It’s for kids. It’s for people that like to shake their ass.’ I said when the video comes out I’ll probably appreciate the song more. But I said this song is going to work. I just think it’s corny. That’s what I said.
Then when the BET awards came around, I said I think Iggy Azalea should have won ‘Best Female Hip Hop Artist’ at the BET awards because she’s had a better year than Nicki Minaj thus far. I still feel that way.
Now, I also said during that time period, Nicki Minaj is the king of New York. Because when I saw her perform at ‘Summer Jam’, I’m like, ‘Yo, she really owned that motherf*cking stage.’ She had the record, she had the ‘Looking Azz,’ she had the ‘Yess B-tch’ and the freestyle with Chi Raq. She was really dominating it. So if being the ‘King of New York’ still means something, she was the king of New York. so therefore I’m an objective fan.
