The Internet is buzzing with the fact that Nicki Minaj loves Drake’s new album Views, but Minaj won’t tell the Toronto rapper this because she is putting Meek Mill first and has cut off any communication at all with Drizzy in order to focus on her relationship with Mill. Many speculate that this relationship is what caused a rift between Drake and Minaj in the first place and that Mill feels threatened by the fact that Drake is a superior rapper. The so called Barbie and the 6 god were very close in the past as videos and musical collaborations show, but ever since the feud started between Drake and Meek Mill Minaj has had to choose a side and is basically caught in the middle in the tug of war between the two rappers.
A source close to Nicki Minaj explained that “Nicki is aware that Drake still has love for her but she had to cut all the communication off, largely to protect her relationship with Meek. She had to pick a side and she chose her man’s. Meek and Drake were going at it way too hard dissing one another and she was caught in the middle. She had no choice but to stop talking to Drake. They will always be cool but Nicki is committed to Meek. That’s her man and quite possibly the love of her life.”
During a recent OVO Sounds Radio interview with Zane Lowe Drake also talked about his relationship with Nicki Minaj. The Toronto rapper explained that he understood why she choose her man over him, but in Keep the Family Close you can hear the pain that Drizzy is in because of this choice when he raps “And it’s all because you chose a side/You’re supposed to put your pride aside and ride for me/Guess it wasn’t time/And of course you went and chose a side that wasn’t mine.”
During the interview Drizzy told Zane “I always have respect and love for Nicki. I don’t really talk to Nicki. Again, another person that I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect, not only for our past and how much work and time we put in, but even just the way she dealt with the situation at hand. I understand what love is, and I understand a personal situation. She dealt with me how I would expect her to, which was with class, and I could only ever do the same …There were points in time where I was waiting to see like, how is this going to go, how deep is your love, you know?”
