Nicki Minaj's Queen Radio is back again. The show's ninth episode is airing live now on Beats 1 via Apple Music — one month after Nicki's controversial eighth episode, which addressed her beef with Cardi B.
The show started with Nicki talking to popular New York podcast host Taxstone, who is currently serving out a jail sentence after pleading guilty to federal gun charges in a 2016 shooting at Irving Plaza in New York. They discussed the state of hip-hop, including Taxstone's take that people shouldn't have complained about her working with 6ix9ine, who recently pled guilty to three felony accounts of sexual misconduct with a child.
Without naming any names, Taxstone said, "There's a Ku Klux Klan of writers that is controlling the narrative."
Speaking to Taxstone, Nicki said that she liked how Kanye gave Trump a redesigned MAGA hat that said "Make America Great."" "I feel like Kanye is hearing the voice of the culture and trying to appease both sides. Both sides have to be heard," she said.
The episode was packed with guest appearances. She was joined shortly by all four members of Little Mix. She spoke with Kehlani on the phone regarding the singer's newly announced pregnancy. Elsewhere in the program, she called Swae Lee to discuss his frustrations with Gucci and to tease a forthcoming collaboration.
Lastly, Asian Doll came on the show to announce her new project will drop next week on 10/17, and to discuss her beef with Kash Doll.
In the time since the last show, Nicki released a run of merch which playfully mocked Cardi, and was (not so playfully) name-dropped by Quavo on the Migos rapper's solo debut album cut "Huncho Dreams."
Listen to the episode — which kicked off at 5 p.m. EST / 2 p.m. PST — on Apple Music here.
