During the interview Nicki also addressed rapper Kendrick Lamar’s Control verse saying:
“I’m probably in the top five… he did mention so go and do your research. Straight up and down,” she said. “I also feel like maybe he is one of the respectful gentleman that probably wanted to feel like ‘I didn’t want to say a female’s name.’… I’m the queen of New York, I’m the king of New York,” she continued. “Let me tell you why. Platinum albums, plural. Number one in five … countries. Don’t play with me.”
