Nicki Minaj Comes For Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Stormi & More After Disappointing Album Sales

Nicki Minaj Comes For Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Stormi & More After Disappointing Album Sales
We’ve speculated for a few months now that Nicki Minaj hasn’t been in the best place and/or frame of mind.

Even rapper-turned-podcaster Joe Budden made similar comments on The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal last month and even went as far as to say Nicki Minaj is on drugs. 

While discussing the messy drama involving her and a blogger that happened, Joe said he can see definitive signs that she is suffering with a drug addiction.

As a former drug user himself, a very concerned Joe Budden shares: “Let’s all try to guess the drugs that Nicki Minaj is on. Somebody should watch her usage. Nicki Minaj is 100% on something.”

When one of his co-hosts asked if it was the video of Nicki’s behavior during an Instagram video of her opening up Chanel gifts helped guide him to this theory, Budden said that was confirmation for him.


“That was confirmation for me but I was already on that,” Joe said. “I’ve been on this. I’ve said this on this podcast a bunch because Meek talked about it. Meek talked about him being hooked on pills when he was with her. And the uphill battle it was for him to get off.”
Thank you 😛😍 you know the way to a Barbie’s ♥️😋🏆 👛 👜

Budden went on to say, “And I know that battle all too well. It’s really, really tough to get off of pills. So I’m not trying to be funny here. Anybody who knows my history knows I’m definitely not trying to be funny.

Joe closed with, “I really think somebody should intervene. I think it’s getting progressively worse.”


This all led to last week’s actions as she ended up bickering with a roster of reality stars from the Love & Hip Hop franchise including DJ Self, MariahLynn, DreamDoll, Jessica Dime. 


Then there was the subliminal disses that she sent at Cardi B during various interviews. 


In the midst of that, Nicki had a very ugly social meltdown war of words with her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels

The former flames went blow for blow in the online ring by airing out a lot of dirty laundry that unfolded (puns!) during their 12-year relationship — including cheating allegations, near-fatal hospital visits, stealing credit cards, faulty hairlines and more.



Did I mention that all THAT happened during the release week of her newest album, Queen?
Yeah, it would be easy to forget that she has a new project out with all that unnecessary drama and now that the sales numbers are here…Nicki is kicking up more drama with more people. 

Nicki’s latest album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 charts, selling a total of 185,000 equivalent album units in its opening week. 

As awesome as those numbers are, Minaj is upset that Travis Scott’s Astroworld came in at No. 1. This has now led to her venting frustrations with the Billboard charting system, Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, their baby Stormi Webster and Spotify. 

Nicki doesn’t like that Travis boosted his album sales by throwing in tour and merchandise sales into his final number. She then claimed that Billboard would not allow her to do the same. “Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album,” she tweeted. “With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn’t have the #1 album this week.”


The Queens femcee than blamed Travis’ successful second week of sales on his Girlfriend Kylie Jenner and their 6-month old daughter Stormi. 

“I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi,” Minaj wrote, referencing an previous Instagram post Jenner shared, which said: “me and storm ready for tour .”


Then Spotify caught some allegations of sabotaging her first-week sales to “teach her a lesson,” while rewarding her Cash Money labelmate Drake, who has a radio show on the competition’s streaming service. 



While the Barbz jumped to Nicki’s defense on twitter, critics called her out for blaming a 6-month-old infant of ruining her first-week sales. 

Nicki Minaj later hopped on Twitter to say she was not bitter or even upset but that she was being sarcastic. 


Sarcastic? Yeah Nicki, we believe you… 

And we’re totally being sarcastic.
