Drake Lyrics Reveal Rocky Relationship With Nick Minaj (LISTEN)

As Drake’s third studio project, “Nothing Was the Same” hits stores this week, the Toronto-bred rapper has stirred up chatter surrounding his relationship with Nicki Minaj. On the album’s opening track, "Tuscan Leather," the 26-year-old professes: “Not even talkin' to Nicki / Communication is breakin' / I dropped the ball on some personal s***, I need to embrace it.”

The eyebrow-raising lyric was the center of attention during Drake’s recent Power 106 radio interview with Big Boy where he clarified his current status with the former “American Idol” judge.
