Nicki Minaj said that she’s not angry with rapper Travis Scott for taking the number one spot on the album charts, but she “wanted to punch him in his f*****g face.”

The 35-year-old rapper insisted it wasn’t anger that made her say that but “what’s right,” when asked Tuesday on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” what she was feeling: “What were those emotions, then, if that’s not anger?” (RELATED: Star Singer Is Putting Up Pathetic Ticket Sales Numbers.

“It’s not anger, it’s just what’s right and what’s wrong and what’s fair,” the rapper responded. “I’ve had a No. 2 album, and I never cared.”

Minaj continued, “It’s just that when you have a No. 2 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, you know, someone is playing a game and beating you at a game as opposed to just selling music. I want to sell music!”

“Yes, he sold a lot of t-shirts and sweaters and tour passes,” Minaj shared. “And so we’re not going to have that!”

“So, I want to say, he didn’t have the No. 1 album,” she added. “Queen was the No. 1 album.”

Minaj continued, sharing that she knows things could be worse because she “started from nothing.”

“I started from nothing,” the rapper shared. “I’m one of those people. I get it. But I don’t like being bullied — don’t like being taken advantage of. And sometimes people use scare tactics against you because they know, especially as a black woman, that people will call you ‘angry’ or ‘bitter.'”

“So now it’s almost like we are not allowed to defend ourselves or stand up for ourselves,”  she shared, “and I’m not going to have that.”

The comments were just the latest from the “Bang Bang” singer who first threw shade at Scott shortly after her album Queen got bumped from the number one spot for Scott’s Astroworld.

She even took to Twitter and accused him of using his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner’s fame, of helping him get that spot.
