Nicki Minaj and Cardi B new song

The rapper has set the record straight.

Nicki Minaj has addressed rumours surrounding her alleged beef with Cardi B over her involvement in Migos' new single, 'Motorsport'.

After the track dropped last week, speculation arose that the female rappers were actually throwing shots at each other in their respective verses on the song.

Several people commented on the apparent beef, with rapper Joe Budden claiming that the song was initially a collaboration between Migos and Cardi B.

Furthermore, Budden suggested that Kanye West - who is rumoured to be producing Migos' upcoming album - was the one who pitched the idea of getting Nicki Minaj on board.

However, the 'Anaconda' rapstress argues that 'Motorsport' originally began with "just Quavo" on the track.

"The conspiracy theories r just so tired. Relax. Breathe. Imagine me not knowing who on a song w/me." she wrote during a series of tweets.

Minaj added that anything with her name on it has to be approved by her - a song can't even go onto a streaming service before she gives her written approval. 

"These are men in our culture who simply refuse to let it go. They don’t do this to male M.C.’s. But yo #Motorsport #1 added on urban radio," she added.

During a recent interview, Cardi B appeared to rubbish any rumours of drama between the pair, who have previously celebrated each other in the past.

"People wouldn't even be satisfied we were making out on a freaking photo" the 'Bodak Yellow' starlet said.

"People just want that drama because it's entertaining."

Minaj later quoted the video in agreement, adding the caption: "Very true. We could make out & it wouldn't be enough. I'm done."

Meanwhile, Nicki is reportedly working towards finishing her hotly anticipated fourth album.

The rapper promised that her new era will be her "most memorable and most impactful' yet.
