It appears that Nicki was telling the truth.
50 Cent is backing his fellow Queens rapper Nicki Minaj after Steve Madden tried to call her out. The drama all started when Nicki Minaj took to her Queen Radio program and fired shots at Cardi B. Cardi fired back, and the lengthy exchange spilled out onto social media on Monday (October 30). During the back and forth between the ladies, Cardi claimed Diesel approached her before going to Minaj for a limited collection. Minaj struck back by saying that she was offered the Steve Madden deal first. After the post, Madden responded calling Minaj a liar, claiming that offer never took place.
The internet's most infamous troll 50 Cent decided to come for Madden after his comments. Fif' took to Instagram to upload two posts that support Nicki's claim that Madden did approach her. "this guy is a liar, YOU LIAR YOU," wrote Fif' on the first post which quotes Madden's Nicki Minaj response. He followed that up with a screenshot of Madden's 2015 Vibe interview, where the fashion designer admits to yearning for a Nicki Minaj collaboration project. "I was gonna do a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and we got into a fight the first minute we met," stated Madden in the interview. "And then we patched it up. We were cool. We text each other, we became sort of buddies. We were thinking of doing something, and I would’ve, but I was with Iggy and I thought, 'Coke and Pepsi.' It was a mistake. I made a mistake and I wish that I could go back in time and work with Nicki instead of Iggy."
Nicki then reposted Fif's revelation on Twitter, send a scathing comeback to Madden after he lied to apparently side with Cardi. "@SteveMadden thought I was lying you dumb fuck," she began. "You, Irv & Gee Roberson came to my house in MALIBU BEGGING me to do the deal. I said no. You then did a deal w/Iggy & she hated the pics you used & went in on you online. Im sure Irv told you to post this lie." This is getting sloppy.
