MTV recently caught up with Drake to ask him about his friendship with Nicki Minaj and the story behind him rapping “Not even talkin’ to Nicki, communication is breakin’; I dropped the ball on some personal shit, I need to embrace it” on the intro song off his latest album, Nothing Was The Same.
Even though he wouldn’t share the reason, Drake explained that around 8 months ago he and Nicki were not on speaking terms. He also says that he has fixed their friendship and they are now talking.
“That line in ‘Tuscan Leather’ isn’t exactly where I am in my life right now but like a year ago… eight months, seven months ago, it was how I felt. I’d done something wrong and I wasn’t speaking to her.”
“I’m honest. I make mistakes. I’d be the second to admit it. Think that’s why I need her in my life, to check me when I’m trippin’.”
“I think the dialogue actually between us was already opened up. I had already solved that issue. I wrote that a while ago and I kinda felt guilty changing it. It was a sentiment that I had when I started this album and felt like that’s how it should be. The album should start one place and end in another.”
“I haven’t talked to her since it’s been out. I’m not sure. I haven’t spoke to her.”
