“I see no lies… white artist songs are instantly “pop” songs and not urban. Miguel got to be “urban” Sam Smith can be “pop” with exact same song. 

“Nobody wanna say it though because of the backlash… The white artist know it too, they don’t disagree.” 

Nicki then posted some cryptic tweets following the backlash.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj recently featured in Migos’ new ‘Motorsport’ video featuring her rumoured rival Cardi B.
