The friendship between the two ended after the Charlamagne Tha God statement. Nicki Minaj wasn’t pleased with his critique of the song. During The Breakfast Club’s Rumor Report segment a few years back, Charlamagne claims that the notion he “hates” on Nicki is driven by his attempt to be an objective journalist. Charlamagne started off by saying he loves Nicki, but admitted that things hit a wrong road when he gave his thoughts on “Anaconda.” Despite this, he did believe at the time Nicki helped to bring in a new era of women rappers and he respects her for that.
Their relationship does not seem to have been repaired because when asked during a recent interview what celebrity he’d like to mend fences with, he named the Queen of the Barbz.
During an interview with Jalen Rose, Charlamagne Tha God explained how he wanted to get on a better page with Nicki Minaj after their long history of not being cool.
“What celebrity would I like to make amends with…probably Nicki Minaj,” said Charlamagne. “Me and Nicki used to be super, we used to be really cool. Yeah, I was very vocal about not liking the ‘Anaconda’ record back in the day and, yeah, definitely, probably Nicki. I got a lotta respect for Nicki. What Nicki has done is unprecedented. She revitalized female Hip Hop over the past decade.”
“All of these new artists, every single one of ’em from [Cardi B] to [Megan Thee Stallion], it’s because of Nicki,” he added. “Nicki opened that lane again. Yeah, probably Nicki.”
