Kanye West Unfollows Nicki Minaj
Written by Rika C on July 12, 2022
It appears as if Nicki Minaj’s friendship with Kanye West has fizzled out, as the latter has seemingly unfollowed the “Hard White” rapper on Instagram. Fans noticed Kanye was no longer following Nicki on Monday, which many fans on social media believe is linked to her recent performance at the Essence Festival of Culture. It was just in February when Nicki opened up on how she felt upon finding out her previous collaboration with Kanye on the song “New Body” had been shelved — a track she called “the hit that got away.” She explained that “New Body” was not officially released as Kanye had turned his attention to creating gospel music at the time.
“So what I thought was interesting was that Kanye made me write my ‘New Body’ verse four times over in order to fit into where he was creatively and spiritually in his life,” she told Hot 106. “Only then do I go on the internet a few months later to see him on Drink Champs, rolling a blunt and smoking or whatever he was doing.” Some fans have speculated whether Nicki’s comments seemingly aimed at Kanye had anything to do with the release of Cardi B’s latest singe “Hot S***,” which features Kanye and Lil Durk. Of course, this is nothing more than fan speculation on social media, but the timeline of recent incidents and remarks would strongly suggest the “clown” remark may have been in response to Kanye working with the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker.
