Nicki Minaj Doubles Down on Claim Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Robbed Her of Album #1 Spot


Nicki Minaj doubled down on her criticism of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott during her Apple Music Queen Radio show today after she suggested the only reason Scott’s album Astroworld beat out her album Queen for the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 charts was because he used his girlfriend to promote it and sold it with merch.

“Travis Scott gets Hoe N*gga of the Week by a landslide,” she said of the presumably weekly honor, via Vice. “Because he’s out here selling clothes instead of music. What we’re not gonna do is have that Auto-Tune man selling fucking sweaters telling you he sold half a million albums, because he fucking didn’t. You stupid fuck. You got your fucking homeboy talking for you and you got your girlfriend selling tour passes. Stop it. Knock it the fuck off.” Minaj is referring to the clothes-album bundle packs that Scott has for sale on his website and the Instagram Jenner posted promoting Scott’s future tour for Astroworld.

She also, per The Fader, addressed the internet’s declaration she is now feuding with Scott and Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster after she called out Jenner for using her baby to promote Scott’s tour in her Instagram caption. “I love Kylie, I love Kim. I actually love all of them,” she clarified of her personal relationship with the family. “I know that you guys are saying me and Baby Stormi have beef,” Minaj then laughed. “Yes we do. Now, this is what the fuck is happening today. Me against baby Stormi. We have this rivalry now. I’m going to start from scratch.”

The takeaway seems to be it’s nothing personal, just professional. Minaj originally tweeted Monday about her issue with the two after chart rankings were released. “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. lol,” she wrote. “Im actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.”

At this point, neither Scott nor Jenner have responded to Minaj directly. But Scott is reported to have requested his and Jenner’s seats behind Minaj at last night’s VMAs be moved—so chances are they aren’t completely indifferent to Minaj’s commentary on his success. On Instagram, Scott just wrote a flirty comment under Jenner’s thirst shot of herself today, so it was really business as usual:
