The root of the latest online skirmish between the two rappers began when Nicki appeared on Instagram Live Thursday evening (May 13), to promote the release of her 2018 mixtape, Beam Me Up Scotty, to streaming services. Throughout the session, Nicki visibly sniffed. She blamed the emotional news right before she stepped on camera. While Nicki was on Live, Banks was also on Live, criticizing Nicki’s presentation. She had stern opinions.
“Girl, if you sniff on that fucking Live one more time, sister. The Barbz, you all gotta check her out on that,” Banks said in the clip, holding back the laughs. “No, we have to talk about that sniffle, Nicki. You are not weak. You are not weak. Please stop snorting, sister. That shit isn’t even cute anymore. Cocaine doesn’t. is even more cocaine. Once they lock up El Chapo, bitch, the original formula is gone. Whatever you put in your nose, stop putting it in your nose. Baby powder, teething powder. . whatever you put in your nose. Please stop putting it in your nose, Nicki. that’s not right. And those tits look like an ass. “
On Friday night (May 14), Nicki posted the cryptic tweet, “Trust this is fun and games until I want to play too,” which may have been directed against Banks’ speech.
Hours later, Nicki addressed speculation about her drug use directly on Instagram Live. “I don’t know if it’s just me, but I wouldn’t mind the fucking drugs I took, that’s why I’m talking about the muthafuckin drugs I do in my muthafuckin ‘music,” said Nicki. “Always, always fucking. If I am beside them, I leave them, my child. But, I want this to be clear, so open everybody’s ears, clean them. I never, ever in my life have my hands on Jesus Christ, and you all know how I feel for my Lord and Savior. Never in my life, never, not even once sniffed coke. Never.”
Nicki noted that she had allergies and was always cold, giving this as the reason for her nasal problems. “If I ever did coke at any point in my life, I would have rapped about it,” she said.
Nicki added, “I have a lot of friends or acquaintances in the industry who make coke. I don’t judge them for it but I never tried it, I never wanted, I never asked them. Especially in the fashion world it’s so common and normal … that’s the problem, when people were lying about me I never used to clean my name and there was someone one who took a big step and told this lie to people and i never brought it up because i thought it was too ridiculous at the time but something just told me [to address it now]. “
Azealia has been one of Nicki’s harshest criticisms over the years. It doesn’t look like the beef will be ground anytime soon.
