Responding to the rap during a recent appearance on the Joe Budden Podcast, Nicki Minaj said that she considered it disrespectful to her personality.
“I went and sat down in a meeting with President Obama, and Ross was there and texted [Meek] after the meeting and said, ‘Yo, this chick is a keeper,'” -recalled Nicki on the Podcast.
“I saw the text myself with my own eyes. [Ross wrote,]
‘This chick is a keeper. She went in a room full of rappers and spoke to Obama and the first thing out of her mouth was about you and figuring out your probation situation and why you’re still on probation after all these years.’ And then you come out on an album, when it’s time to sell some weak-ass f*cking album, and try to disrespect Nicki Minaj?” – the 36-year-old New Yorker added.
Responding to what Nicki told Joe Budden during an interview with The Breakfast Club, Rick Ross said:
“I mean if somebody went in to meet Obama with you, she is a keeper. Until you find out otherwise. You know what I mean?”
“[Nicki] was around me a few times, but other than that, she was a huge talent. But she was playing a very important position at the time. She was in between Meek and Drake at the time. What she doesn’t know and she may not understand, coming from a big homie like myself, playing that position – that was a very fragile role. It would be very easy to put that responsibility on her. But that ain’t what I tried to make it to, but most definitely, when I seen it go sour, it would be easy to assume she may have had something to do with that. If somebody tells you they didn’t, they lying. But everybody moved forward.”
