Why Travis Scott Can't Stand Nicki Minaj

In 2018, Travis Scott and Nicki Minaj dropped their albums "Astroworld" and "Queen," respectively, in the same week. According to Billboard, Scott's album was No. 1 on the charts, selling 205,000 individual units, while Minaj's placed second, only selling 185,000 units.
Minaj didn't appreciate losing the top spot, accusing Scott of inflating his album sales. "Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week," Minaj claimed in a tweet.
Minaj also placed part of the blame on Scott's girlfriend, Kylie Jenner. "I put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi [...] #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries," Minaj tweeted.
This prompted Scott to seemingly indirectly address Minaj at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, where both were present. Scott asked to change his and Jenner’s seats so they didn’t have to be near Minaj, also saying, "'Astroworld' number one right now VMAs make some noise!" on stage.
