Nicki Minaj went on an NYC press junket this weekend, appearing on DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 show as well as Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club for interviews that saw the first lady of Young Money talking everything from Kendrick Lamar’s “Control,” to the falling out that Drake alluded to on Nothing Was The Same:

Not even talkin’ to Nicki communication is breakin’/I dropped the ball on some personal sh*t I need to embrace it.”

Drake later said the line was relevant at the time he wrote it, which was months before the album’s release, and that he’d made amends with Nicki. Yet there was a notable lack of features from Young Money artists on NWTS, something Minaj told Whoo she wouldn’t emulate:

No, I’m Young Money til the death of me. Drake can do what Drake do but Nicki Minaj is a whole different person. I think your team is your team. Who gives a f*ck about trying to be different? I’m always going to want my team to be a part of my project, no matter what, in some way.”

Imagine a Young Money counseling session, as everyone lies in the rug of Drake’s eyebrows and lies to each other about their eternal commitment to Birdman. Nothing could be greater.

On The Breakfast Club, Minaj was asked about not being mentioned on Lamar’s “Control,” and she defended her rap record vociferously:

I’m probably in the top five of the n*ggas he did mention, so go and do your motherf*cking research. But, I also feel like he may be one of those respectful gentlemen that probably felt like ‘I don’t want to say a female’s name.’ Or maybe he just don’t think the kid is ill. But the kid knows the kid is ill, so I don’t need to be on anybody’s dick.”

Referring to yourself as “the kid” is insufferable as f*ck.

Minaj also had this to say about any “King of New York” talk:

I’m the queen of New York. I’m the king of New York. Let me tell you why. Platinum albums. Albums plural. Number one in five motherf*cking countries, n*gga. Don’t play with me. You better respect my motherf*cking gangsta, bitch. When you got an album that goes number one in Japan, the UK, Australia, America and Canada at the same motherf*cking time, then you can speak my motherf*cking name.”

But perhaps that was just blustering bravado, as Minaj tweeted this:
