"I wanted to make sure I was writing something that was meaningful to me and that would inspire and that would captivate my audience", Minaj told interviewer Zane Lowe.
"When I heard the track, her verse wasn't finished - well, it's not the verse that is out right now - and Quavo told me to get on the song, and I just felt like it was a ideal opportunity for me to be on a track that's big like that", Cardi said.More news: Memo warning Apple employees about leaking gets leaked to the me
Minaj also admitted she turned to Migos star Quavo in search of support - but he shunned her. The Young Money rapper says she felt hurt after Cardi B did an interview after the song came out. With Cardi B, she's done exactly what she should have done - the only thing with Cardi that really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after "Motorsport" came out.
Minaj and Cardi worked together on "Motorsport" with Migos, and after it came out last fall, Cardi said in an interview that she was offered a part on the song by Quavo after Minaj recorded an early version of her verse.More news: Destiny's Child 'set to reunite' during Beyonce's Coachella set
Cardi referenced "MotorSport" in an interview with Capital XTRA previous year, saying, "When I heard the track, her verse wasn't finished".
"I def missed you guys". I didn't hear that verse. "He texted me and he was like, 'I would go on Twitter and back you up if you were my girl'". Seems Quavo also apologize to Nicki and that's when she called off her Barbz. "It's because of the Nicki hate parade that she felt the comfortability to address me in that manner".More news: Israeli official justifies US-led strikes on Syria
