When the Billboard 200 numbers rolled in on Sunday afternoon, Nicki Minaj headed straight to Twitter to air out her grievances over her No. 2 spot with Queen. Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD came out on top for the second week in a row, with the help of some sneaky merch tactics, and Minaj was left ranting and blaming everyone from Spotify to Kylie Jenner and her 6-month-old baby Stormi Webster.
Since then, Nicki claimed that she's not that pressed over the charts and that her rant is all “sarcasm,” but maintains that the numbers are a result of blackballing. Smokepurpp disagrees.
Unsurprisingly, this cultural moment is being amplified by the messy drama-lovers over at the MTV Video Music Awards, because they decided to seat Kylie and Travis right behind Nicki Minaj, per TMZ. Let’s see if “what’s good” Nicki pops out circa 2015.
