It comes after a tweet implying Scott's success was aided by girlfriend Kylie Jenner
Nicki Minaj went off about Travis Scott's album success on her radio show Tuesday night, labelling him a "stupid fuck".
Scott beat her to the number one spot of the Billboard Top 200 with his latest release, Astroworld.
She appeared unimpressed with her second-place position, taking to Twitter to imply Scott's girlfriend (and mother to his child) Kylie Jenner aided his ability to climb the chart.
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. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans.

On Tuesday night's episode of her radio show, she once again implied Jenner's fame helped Scott's position and claimed his merchandise counted towards his album sales.
“What we're not gonna do is have that Auto-Tune man selling fucking sweaters and telling y’all he sold half a million fucking albums because he didn't," she said of the rapper, with whom Jenner shares 6-month-old daughter Stormi.
“You stupid fuck. You got your fucking homeboy talking for you and you got your girlfriend selling tour passes. Stop it. Knock it the fuck off."
“When (Scott) comes along and sells a tour pass that has nothing to do with his fucking music and says he’s sold more than Kanye West and Nas – no you fucking didn’t. Keep it the fuck real,” she continued. “I know I’m that bitch, I know I’m number one."
Minaj has been hosting Queen Radio on Apple Music's Beats 1 to celebrate the release of her fourth album, Queen.
Following her tweets, Jenner and Scott's seats at the MTV VMAs were moved from behind Minaj to the opposite side of the room.
Minaj also took time to clarify that "none of this is some serious anger shit" on her show.
"We are in a time right now where black music is prospering,” she said. "I’m so excited to see where rap has come from and where we are. But right is right and wrong is wrong."
