Nicki Minaj was originally supposed to be on the Tory Lanez's sophomore album Memories Don’t Die, which dropped yesterday.
However, she requested Lanez remove her verse from the track "Shooters" after she submitted it. It seems Nicki took something Tory texted about the verse the wrong way.
"She was on the record first and I was telling her something about the verse," he told HotNewHipHop. "I wasn’t saying it was bad or anything, her verse was incredible and I’m also like a super-Nicki fan. But I was telling her something about the verse and it may have came off. Cause I was texting her and it may have came off in a different way. She probably read it differently than I said it… I think it maybe kinda came off a little bit arrogant or I kinda said something I shouldn’t have said about her verse and she was like “well nigga, it’s just not that serious, take my verse off the thing. We was like, “aight.” I love Nicki Minaj when it comes down to the music and the whole thing but I’m not like a reacher. Once a nigga says it’s quiet, it’s quiet. I’m fine with that. I’m a great musician. I'm a great musician. I'm always going to be making great music. Maybe in the future when the time is right, we’ll do something that’s right that we both feel comfortable with.”
Jump to 26 minutes to hear Tory speak about the misunderstanding.
