Nicki Minaj and Cardi B were involved in a physical altercation at the Harper's Bazaar Icons party at New York Fashion Week Friday night. Following the melee, Cardi wrote a statement, while Nicki posted a silent short video of herself looking unharmed on Instagram.
Now Nicki Minaj has spilled her side of the story on Queen Radio. On air, the "Chun-Li" artist proved more than willing to speak at length on the altercation.
First off, Nicki wanted to clear up some allegations about what began the fight, according to Vulture. Cardi's statement suggested Nicki said something out of pocket about her daughter, Kulture, but the Queen rapper vehemently denied bringing the baby up.
“I just want people to know that Onika Tanya Maraj has never, will never speak ill on anyone’s child. I am not a clown. That’s clown shit,” she said before playing a recording of Cardi B saying that no subject is off limits in a hip-hop beef.
“But we did hear this woman say that nothing’s off limits,” Nicki said, “Because she has built her career off of sympathy and payola.”

“Let’s get up a 1-800 number for postpartum depression,” she added. “You just had the biggest blessing of your life with a child, and in two weeks, you have attacked three women. One at Fashion Week. And left looking the way you left looking so that people could point their fingers at our culture and our community and laugh at us some more?”
The postpartum depression jab, though, Onika?
Minaj also accused the "Be Careful" singer of cultural appropriation, according to Variety.
“You came into my f**kin' culture. I never had to bang a DJ to play my songs. You call black women roaches. Real bitches never attack a woman. You’re angry and you’re sad. This is not funny. Get this woman some f**in' help. This woman’s at the highest point in her career and she’s throwing shoes?” Nicki said.
Overall, Nicki claimed she was actually "humiliated" by the whole ordeal.
