Nicki Minaj has responded to T-Pain after he revealed that she denied his request for a verse in 2007. A lot has happened since then in both of their careers.
Minaj was set to work with T-Pain, he revealed in an interview with 85 South Show, but there were issues. T-Pain claims that her attitude and work ethic got in the way. She stopped responding to him and then Nicki Minaj fired back that she’s got her own projects to worry about as well.
“We was about to work together and she stopped responding and I was like, ‘Nick, let me know what’s going on. She was like, ‘Hey, I’m an artist too and I’m working on my shit so ya know. Baby, chill.’ And I was like, ‘Oh… My heart.'”
He later explained that Nicki Minaj curving on him wasn’t a bit of malicious intent. T-Pain also admitted that he might have been crushing on her a bit at the time.
“Omg what was I thinking? He was already a rlly big artist. I was still underground. Chileeee I used to b buggin yo. My bad babe, all love. I have nthn but respect for your talent and thank you & Kanye for clearing ‘Go Hard’ for Beam Me Up Scotty last month.”
“Listening to you over & over on that record taught me [so much] about harmonies & background vocals. Your vocals on that song alone are GOATED FOR LIFE. I listened to every single detail @tpain.”
Perhaps fans could actually expect a Nicki Minaj and T-Pain track in the future. We’ll have to see what’s in the cards, but Minaj certainly seems game to keep this bridge unburned.
