Nicki Minaj has been on a rampage against fellow rapper Travis Scott. The rivalry began when they dropped their albums 'Queen' and 'Astroworld' the same week. Now, the shade has leveled up from comparing album streams to MTV VMAs performances.
Minaj posted a video of her performance on Instagram, writing, "Guess which performance is the MOST VIEWED from Monday’s VMA’s????!!! Link in my bio to check it out! Thank you to this crowd. You guys made this such a legendary time. Love you. Love you. Love you so much. YOU COULD NAME ANYBODY, WEATHER MAN, PICK A DAY! KOBE, KD, KYRIE! PICK A K!!!!!!"
While it is more subtle than her previous insults, when Minaj says "Pick a K" she is allegedly referencing Travis Scott's girlfriend Kylie Jenner. When 'Astroworld' debuted as the week's number one album, the female rapper claimed that most of his streams came from Jenner's star power rather than Scott's talent. Yikes.
Not to burst the Minaj bubble, but she actually didn't have the most viewed performance at the VMAs. The YouTube ranking goes to Ariana Grande with 5.6 million, Nicki Minaj with 4.2 million, then Travis Scott at 1.3 million.
