Nicki Minaj Responds To Kendrick Lamar's 'Control' Verse

Posted: Updated:

Many of the rappers mentioned in Kendrick Lamar's controversial "Control" verse were peeved, but Nicki Minaj, who wasn't named, is miffed at being excluded.

The rapper expressed her dissatisfaction during a recent interview with Power 105.1:

I'm probably in the top five of the n---s he did mention, so go and do your motherf--king research. But, I also feel like he maybe 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 d--k. ... I'm the queen of New York. I'm the king of New York. Let me tell you why. Platinum albums. Albums. Plural. No. 1 in five motherf--king countries, n---a. Don't play with me. You better respect my motherf--ing gangsta, bitch. When you got an album that goes No. 1 in Japan, the U.K., Australia, America and Canada at the same motherf--king time, then you can speak my motherf--king name.

Minaj delivers this colorful response with her signature brand of flair. The rapper took to Twitter post-interview to clarify that she does not, in fact, think she is the "king of New York."

Other who can't consider themselves New York monarchy, according to "Control," include J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electronica and Mac Miller.
