Nicki Minaj says she wants to punch Travis Scott in the face

The beef is alive and kicking.

Somebody ask Nicki Minaj if she wants some gravy with her beef, after she went in on Travis Scott yet again over his album beating hers to the number one spot in the charts.

Cast your mind back to pre-MTV VMAs, and you might remember Nicki Minaj let rip on the rapper because his album, Astroworld, pipped her latest release, Queen, to the top in the Billboard Charts.

Nicki claimed Travis was using girlfriend Kylie Jenner and daughter Stormi Webster to help his album sales, which later prompted the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star to ask to be moved away from Minaj at the award ceremony.

As of yet, Travis and Kylie haven't responded to the claims - but Nicki has taken the opportunity to go in on them again, saying on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that while she wasn't "angry" at Travis, she just "wanted to punch him in his f*cking face."

"The thing is, it's not anger, it's what's right and what's wrong and what's fair. I've had a number two album and I never cared," she said. "It's just that when you have a number two album to someone who is selling shirts and merch, and selling passes for a tour that's not even announced yet, it feels like you're being tricked.

"It feels like someone is playing a game and like beating you at a game as opposed to just selling music. I want to sell music. He sold a lot of t-shirts and sweaters and tour passes, and so we're not going to have that!"

Nicki continued, "I don't like being bullied and I don't like being taken advantage of and sometimes people use scare tactics against you because especially as a black woman, people will call you 'angry' or 'bitter.' So now it's almost like we're not allowed to defend ourselves or stand up for ourselves, and I'm not going to have that."
