Nicki Minaj Just Compared Herself To Harriet Tubman & The Dragging Has Begun

Kylie Jenner

Over the weekend, Billboard announced this week's chart positions, with Travis Scott charting at #1 with his recent album, Astroworld, while Nicki Minaj's Queen followed closely behind at #2.

"I then sprayed hair with a bit of additional heat protectant spray and then began straightening hair with the NEW ghd Platinum+ Styler". In a subsequent tweet, Minaj likened Tubman's fight against slavery (using a quote often misattributed to Tubman) to her own battle against streaming services and the way streams are counted in the music charts. "They're watching online. And don't be coming for Fifth Harmony because Normani Kordei is that bitch", she added, throwing shade at Haddish. "I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves." - is often attributed to Tubman. Watch that clip here.

Why, Onika Why? Was the general response on the Twitterverse after worldwide rapper superstar Nicki Minaj had a Twitter meltdown on Sunday following the official announcement that "Queen" will bow in at number 2 on the Billboard 200 charts this week. "Travis Scott is out here selling fucking clothes and got ya'll thinking he's selling music". My music went up on Apple so I played it. "What we're not gonna do is have this f**king autotune man come up in here selling f**king sweaters and telling y'all he sold half a million f**king albums, 'cause he didn't". "You stupid f**k", she continued before calling out Travis' girlfriend Kylie Jenner, whom previously posted about his upcoming tour on Instagram. "You stupid fuck", Minaj said on #QueenRadio. Stop it. Knock it the fuck off. Since its release, Scott's album has moved 205,000 album-equivalent units, 78,000 of which represent traditional album sales.

Even rapper-turned-podcaster Joe Budden made similar comments on The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal last month and even went as far as to say Nicki Minaj is on drugs.
