Rick Ross Calls Nicki Minaj the Queen of Rap
…If I’m gettin’ money and I’m doin’ what I’m doin’, you ain’t goin’ anywhere. You ain’t goin’ on tour over in Russia. You gon be right there. I got somethin’ for you, trust me. Or, if that’s part of my overall diabolical scheme I’m puttin’ together, I may need a lil time in between of whatever it is I’m tryna do… It depend on what it is. I don’t believe anyone can dictate the time span you have to respond but you most definitely should. Especially if you’re on the throne. It’s without a doubt Nicki was on the throne, is on the throne.
This led to the interviewer asking if Nicki Minaj is the Queen of Rap. Rick Ross has little doubt about who sits on the throne.
That’s without a doubt [Nicki Minaj is the Queen]. Anybody that says different… you’d be playin’ yourself. It’s most definitely respectable female emcees in the game… with Remy, if there was a contender [for the throne] it was Remy. That’s what she did. She took her shot.
In other news, Rick Ross has words of advice for his Maybach Music Group artist Meek Mill about his breakup with Nicki Minaj.
“I told Meek I wouldn’t trust Nicki,” he raps on the Raphael Saadiq-assisted “Apple of My Eye.” “Instead of beefing with your dog, you just give ’em some distance / We all make mistakes, let’s not be too ‘pecific.”
