Nicki Minaj Calls Travis Scott “Auto Tune Man,” Refers To Him As A Hoe A$$ N*gg*!
Nicki Minaj is taking her Queen Radio to new heights. The rapper called out Travis Scott on her weekly Beats 1 radio show and its got everyone talking. During the show, she dubbed Scott her “#HoeNiggaOfTheWeek” for allegedly sneaking his way to the top of the Billboard 200 Chart for a second week in a row by bundling his album with the purchase of tour merchandise. She recently announced her stance on the issue in a Twitter rant, where she briefly elaborated how she thinks Travis allegedly tinkered his sales with the selling of merchandise.
In a short clip, Minaj asserts, “Hoe nigga of the week of course is Travis Scott(!),” as the accompany DJ for the show lets out a careful “Woooo!” She continues on her position against the “SICKO MODE” rapper,
“Travis Scott, on Thursday, when he realized that ‘Queen’ was about to have the number one album in America. He and his label decided to have Kylie and baby Stormi put up a tour pass. He had her go and post and say, ‘Hey! Me and and Stomri can’t wait to see y’all.’”
Minaj is speaking about the recent photo which Kylie posted Friday about Travis’ tour. The caption reads, “me and storm ready for tour. shop.travisscott.com.”
After giving her venting about her contention. She expands on her point by questioning,
“How are you selling something that does not have nothing to do with your album, but its being counted on Billboard as album sales?”
The clip readies to a close when Minaj gives the specifics about Scott’s sales and claiming there are rappers in the industry who are too scared to speak about the alleged miscalculation,
“But what we not gone do is have this auto tune man coming up here selling fucking sweaters and telling y’all he sold half a million fucking albums cause he didn’t! It’s a lot of rappers behind the scene that wanna talk about it, and their scared! But sweet heart, I’m not scared, I’m legendary in these streets.”

According to Billboard,
Queen launches with 185,000 equivalent album units earned, of which 78,000 were in traditional album sales. Queen, like Astroworld, saw its sales bolstered by an array of merchandise/album bundles sold via Minaj’s official website. Queen also benefits from sales generated by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with her upcoming co-headlining tour with Future.
