Taking to Twitter, the female emcee suggests that her fellow rapper only earns his No. 1 position because his girlfriend posts 'a tour pass telling ppl to come see her [and] Stormi.'

AceShowbiz - Travis Scott (II) spends a second week atop Billboard 200 chart with his latest album "Astroworld", and one particular person is not happy about it. Nicki Minaj has called out her fellow rapper in a series of tweets, suggesting that he only beat her thanks to his girlfriend Kylie Jenner.

Nicki insisted that Travis only earned the No. 1 position because he boosted his sales by including "Astroworld" in tour and merch bundles. "Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc," she tweeted. "He knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week."

Referencing Kylie's recent Instagram post that promoted his tour, Nicki continued in another tweet, "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. Lol. Im actually laughing." She also implied that Billboard might change the rules to prevent artists from boosting their sales by using the same strategy.

Travis wasn't the only one whom she called out in her Twitter rant. The "Bed" raptress also took aim at Spotify for claiming that she was being punished for releasing her album during her radio show. She also slammed the streaming service for their recent campaign to promote Drake's record-breaking album "Scorpion".

"Spotify put drake's face on every playlist but told me they'd have to teach me a lesson for playing my music 10 mins early on #QueenRadio," she says, before adding in another tweet that the company "rewarded the man who has had an Apple radio show the longest, inadvertently helping the Apple platform the most."

Nicki ended her rant by hinting that she would spill all the tea during her radio show on Tuesday, August 21.

"Queen" debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200 with 185,000 equivalent album units, marking the second-largest week for an album by a female artist in 2018. It follows Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy" which launched atop the chart with 255,000 units. Additionally, "Queen" takes the first place on various music charts in 85 countries.
