Drake no longer speaks to Nicki Minaj, which is odd for how close the label mates had been in years past.
But it comes as no surprise to some–especially since the huge diss record fiasco between Drake and Minaj’s boyfriend, Meek Mill. Drake, who released his latest album Views this week, tells Zane Lowe on Apple Music during his interview,
I don’t really talk to Nick. Again, another person that I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect, not only for our past and how much work and time we put in, but even just the way she dealt with the situation [regarding Birdman and Lil Wayne] at hand.
While he doesn’t specifically point to his rap beef with Meek, he does say,
I understand what love is, and I understand a personal situation. She dealt with me how I would expect her to, which was with class, and I could only ever do the same. There were points in time where I was waiting to see like, how is this going to go, how deep is your love, you know? You gotta ask yourself that.
I always have respect and love for Nicki, and unfortunately we haven’t spoke, but it is what it is, even if we don’t speak, she knows what it is, it’s always love.
Nicki has yet to comment.
