Nicki has come to Drizzy's defence...

Nicki Minaj has shown her allegiance to Drake in his latest feud with GOOD Music rapper Pusha T.

Following Drake’s scathing ‘Duppy Freestyle’ diss track in response to Pusha T’s claims about ghostwriting, Nicki has stepped in to send a message to anybody questioning her Young Money labelmate’s talent.

The Complete History Of Nicki Minaj & Drake's Relationship

“N*ggaz gon run that Quentin sh*t in the fkn ground like Drake don’t write 4 himself & OTHERS!” wrote Nicki, adding the hashtag #YMOE (Young Money Over Everything).

“Ya enemies will remix, reinvent & TRY 2make u RELIVE some old sh*t for YEARS 2 come when they have NOTHING ON U! Knock it off. Challenging the chosen ones only awakens the sleeping giant.”

Drizzy then responded to Nicki Minaj’s message on Instagram, using the shrug, lightbulb and heart emojis.

Drake’s feud with Pusha T was reignited after the latter brought up an artist called Quentin Miller, who allegedly ghostwrote for Drake on his mixtape ‘If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late’.

Pusha rapped: “It was written like Nas, but it came from Quentin.”

However Drake was quick to respond to the Quentin Miller jab in his own song, adding: “And as for Q, man, I changed his life a couple times,” he raps. “Ni**a was at Kroger working double time / Y’all actin’ like he made the boy when I was tryna help the guy.”

Interestingly, when Meek Mill initially exposed Drake for working with Quentin Miller in 2015, Nicki Minaj remained silent.

The ‘Chun Li’ rapper, who was dating Meek at the time, later explained why she chose to stay out of the feud.

“It was one of the hardest parts of my career to date ever,” she recently said in a interiew. “At the time, I did love both of them. I couldn’t erase the love I had for my team but I also couldn’t speak out, couldn’t say much. I felt so imprisoned in that moment.”

“It was difficult to stay out of it. I was behind the scenes, of course, wishing it never happened…I tried to stop it from happening. I said, ‘Don’t do that.’ But as artists, we all look back on things we shouldn’t have done.

“That’s one of those things [Meek] shouldn’t have done. I told him before he did it but he did it. I know both Meek and Drake have both moved on from that, from the anger, and all of that stuff. We all have moved on.”

Meanwhile, fans are still eagerly waiting for Pusha T to respond to Drake’s ‘Duppy Freestyle’.
