Nicki Minaj has responded after T-Pain expressed his disappointment about being turned down by her.

The “Buy U A Drank” rapper was on “Desus & Mero” where he recalled asking a then-up-and-coming Minaj if she would collab with him on a “quick little verse.”

“She was like, ‘Hey, I’m an artist too and I’m working on my s**t, so ya know, baby chill,” recalled T-Pain.

“I was under so much pressure to deliver 😫 my bad babe, all love. I have nthn but respect for your talent. 🎀♥️ and thank you & Kanye for clearing ‘Go Hard’ for Beam Me Up Scotty last month. 🙏 listening to you over & over on that record taught me SM about harmonies & background vocals. Your vocals on that song alone are GOATED FOR LIFE. I listened to every single detail,” she added.
