Ring the alarm! Nicki Minaj just reignited her beef with Kylie Jenner by getting her ex-boyfriend Tyga to join her war. Nicki has been angry at Kylie's current boyfriend Travis Scott over sneaky tactics and Billboard technicalities (such as counting merch towards album sales) that kept her Queen album from debuting at number one and kept his Astroworld album on top. Nicki felt that Travis used Kylie and baby Stormi to boost his chances and called him out on it in a Twitter rant.

The dust seemed to settle when Nicki clarified that her issue was with Travis, not Kyle. But that narrative changed after what went down with Tyga on Nicki's Queen Radio show for Apple Music on Thursday night. Nicki interviewed him and his answers to her questions about his relationship with Kylie will surely make her see red. He implied that he was responsible for her success, and it wasn't a good look.

“Big facts. No cap. Everybody knows that. That’s public,” he said.

Nicki tried to reel him in and question whether Kylie didn’t have a role in her own success but he continued to claim credit. “She always had a platform and she was always destined to be what she was going to be regardless, but, when I stepped in, there was a lot of codes being taught," he said. "It was like, you could do this, you should start this, you should start doing your hair like this, or you should do this.”

“You should adapt because you need black people to f*ck with you because you need culture,” he continued. “If you ain’t got black people behind you, you ain’t got nothing. Ain’t nobody gonna listen. You can’t influence nobody.”

Tyga also claimed he had a hand in creating Kylie’s Lip Kits.

”I don't need to go online and tell people I did this and I'm the one helping her coming up with these colors and names on her lip line," he told Nicki. "It was a lot of stuff but it’s like I’m not that bitter type of person because God is going to pay me back, the universe is going to pay me back.” Tyga insisted that he isn’t bitter.

He refused to take a shot at Nicki’s rival but stayed on her good side by giving her Queen album a shout-out. 

Kylie AND their daughter, Stormi, got dragged into Nicki’s drama because she felt Travis used Kylie to give his album sales a boost.

Nicki wasn't mincing words.

This led to a very awkward moment on the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet.

The internet went wild over a TMZ clip that showed Kylie turning around to avoid running into Nicki.

Nicki later backtracked and said she didn’t have an issue with Kylie.

"TMZ posted a video saying Kylie Jenner avoided me at the red carpet. It was funny, and I thought it was cute. I said it on the last show, and I'll say it again: I f--king love Kylie, and that's never gonna change," she said on the first episode of Queen Radio. "She has been put in a little awkward situation, but this isn't real life—this is entertainment. I love Kylie, and so do my fans.” She also said that she loved Kylie's sister Kim Kardashian.
