During Kanye West’s rant at his listening party for his Vultures album in Las Vegas today (Dec. 15), the mercurial rapper-producer blasted Nicki Minaj for not clearing her verse on “New Body” for his joint project with Ty Dolla $ign.
“I made that girl rewrite her verse three times for ‘Monster.’ I supported her career. So I don’t know what it is,” Ye said in a clip, which can be viewed below.
Kanye added that he wouldn’t release the album because Nicki didn’t clear her verse. The project was supposed to drop on Friday (Dec. 15), but it didn’t, much to the disappointment of fans.
While on Instagram Live and chatting with her fans on Thursday (Dec. 14), Nicki addressed why she didn’t clear her verse for Ye’s Vultures LP. The veteran rhymer felt it didn’t make sense for her to clear a song from three years ago when she just released her new album, Pink Friday 2, last week.
“Now regarding Kanye, that train has left the station,” Nicki said in the video below. “No disrespect in any way, I just put out a brand new album. Why would I put out a song that’s been out for three years? Come on guys.”
In the end, Kanye West is mad.
