Drake is clearly the bigger star when it comes to his feud with Meek Mill, but to suggest he’s somehow hurting Nicki Minaj’s tour sales isn’t very accurate.

Multiple sites are claiming Drake and Meek’s beef is hurting Nicki’s tour since Meek is one of her opening acts but Forbes claims despite the rap beef, Nicki’s tour is one of the most successful of the summer alongside J. Cole.

And despite what some are reporting, the demand for the Pinkprint tour is very high.

Forbes writes:

…Leading the way for the genre, Nicki Minaj’s “The Pinkprint” tour and J. Cole’s “Forest Hills Drive” tour have had the biggest demand on the ticket market. Both tours will wrap this month, and tickets are still available on the primary and secondary market.

Backed by up-and-comers DeJ Loaf, Tinashe, Rae Sremmurd and Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj’s “The Pinkprint” tour has sailed steadily throughout its summer course. The tour, which kicked off July 17, is in support of Nicki’s 2014 release The Pinkprint, which debuted at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and held that position for three weeks before falling to No. 3. The album was the second highest in first-week sales for a female artist in 2014 and second highest in first week sales for a rap artist in 2014. Across the tour map, Nicki Minaj tickets have maintained an average of $157 a ticket.


Congrats to J. Cole and Nicki.

    Umm Nicki does have a strong fan base. These Drake stans need to sit down somewhere. Yes, he’s a Jew but he ain’t got as much power as they think.

      With no rap beefs and no features. No hits. And half the hype as Drake. LOL.

    The Drake media machine is doing the most right now. All over lame a-s Meek Mill. He couldn’t flex this kind of muscle on Kendrick or Cole World though.

    Thank you for posting this UB! I’m so tired of people trying to call this tour a flop just because they Stan for Drake! Leave Nicki out of it!

    I never believed this my little cousin was complaining a couple of weeks ago because she tried to go see Nicki first in ATL and then in Charlotte and all the tickets were sold out. I’ve heard Cole has a great tour I want to go.

    It’s like people are waiting for Nicki to fail because Meek went after Drake. Weird.

    This never made sense. Why would Nicki’s tour flop over a beef that had nothing to do with her and she’s the biggest female rapper out right now? Doesn’t add up. So I didn’t believe it anyway.

    Dude uses ghostwriters and has his camp lie to the media to seem more powerful than he is. His whole image is a lie. Yet they will stan for him anyway. Hip Hop really is dead.
