During an Instagram Live session, last week Thursday fans couldn’t help but notice that Nicki was constantly sniffing; triggering a cocaine intake rumor. Nicki Minaj returned to the spotlight on Thursday night (May 13), shortly before she released an extended version of her 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty to streaming platforms for the first time.
Azealia Banks, who’s never afraid to speak her mind, was among the many wondering if Nicki had done cocaine prior to hopping on the giant social media platform.
“Girl, if you sniffle one more time on this muthafuckin’ Live, sis,” she said. “The Barbz, y’all need to check her on that. No, we have to talk about that sniffling, Nicki. You not low. You not low. Please stop sniffling, sis. That shit is not even cute no more. Cocaine is not even cocaine no more. Once they locked El Chapo up, bitch, the original formula is gone.
“Whatever you putting in your nose, please stop putting it in your nose. Baby powder, teething powder…whatever you putting in your nose. Please stop putting it in your nose, Nicki. That is not OK. And them titties look like a butt.”
However, it didn’t take long before Nicki Minaj took yo her Instagram live to address the chatter. On another Instagram Live, she emphatically denied she’s ever ingested cocaine.
“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I wouldn’t be embarrassed about any fuckin’ drugs I did,” she claimed. “That’s why I talk about the muthafuckin’ drugs I do in my muthafuckin’ music. Always have, always fuckin’ will. If I’m off ’em, I’m off ’em, child.
“But, I want to make this clear so open everybody’s ears, clear them ears out. I have never, ever in my life with my hands on Jesus Christ — and y’all know how I feel about my Lord and savior — never in my life, ever, not even once sniffed coke. Ever.”
