On the latest installment of Queen Radio, the "Megatron" rapper also revealed she and boyfriend Kenneth Petty got a marriage license.
Nicki Minaj may be happy to put her feud with Cardi B behind her, but she's not quite done with Miley Cyrus, lashing out at the "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" singer after both Nicki and Cardi were name-dropped in Cyrus' lyrics.
On her "Cattitude" track, Cyrus sings "I love you Nicki, but I listen to Cardi," itself a reference to the infamous feud between the two rappers. But the byproduct seems to be the reigniting of Cyrus' own feud with Minaj.
"A Perdue chicken can never talk s-- about queens," Minaj said during her Queen Radio broadcast on Friday. "But I do notice a lot of Perdue chickens recently have been trying to say the queen's name for clout. And that's always been happening."
Perdue Chicken themselves seemed to appreciate the shout-out, jumping into the fray for a moment if only to joke that they know nothing about beef.

Minaj went on a brief, raunchy tirade against Cyrus, saying, "That's what [she] did in the first place. And then the white girl cried and made the black girl seem like she was a bad guy. In the first place, she disrespected me in a magazine article for no reason."
That not-so-fresh callback is for a 2015 interview with the New York Times where Cyrus described Minaj as "not too kind."
Not one to back down from a fight, Minaj went right at the singer during the Cyrus-hosted VMAs that same year. After accepting the award for Best Hip Hop Video at the ceremony, she said, "And now ... back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press -- Miley, what's good?"
Minaj also took a quick jab at Cyrus' latest alter-ego, "Black Mirror's" Ashley O, saying, "Now you comin’ out with pink wigs, all you bitches want to be Nicki. This is the problem."
In the episode, Ashley O shares more in common with Cyrus' own Hannah Montana pre-packaged pop star than Minaj's cutting edge rap persona, but she does wear a pink wig.
As for the lyric that had Minaj all fired up heading into the weekend, Cyrus explained on the Capital Breakfast radio show that it was all about love for both artists.
"I think what they do is so different from each other. That's why they both get a crown. They don't have to share. They don't have to break it in half. There's no reason to fight over it," she said. "They're both queens. And anytime you want to feel powerful and strong, that's my go-to: Cardi and Nicki."
Unfortunately, Nicki didn't get that message, or perhaps she felt slighted that the lyric itself certainly seemed to indicate a preference, as well as suggesting that for Cyrus it's a case of one or the other, but not both.
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B seem to agree that they're both queens, though, as the women recently squashed their own beef that had culminated in an ugly encounter at the Harper's Bazaar party during New York Fashion Week in September.
A month later, Minaj tweeted that they should "focus on positive things from here on out," and Cardi B was all for it, responding with, "Let's keep it positive and keep it pushing!"
That could also be why Minaj took issue with Cyrus calling out the feud so many months after its participants agreed to call a truce and put the beef behind them. How can you "focus on positive things" if someone is going to bring up negativity from the past.
Considering Cyrus had her own beef with Minaj that the two had seemingly put behind them as well, it was perhaps ill-advised to stoke those embers. At the least, she could have considered a conversation with Minaj (and perhaps Cardi as well) over the song's lyrical content.
Elsewhere on her Queen Radio broadcast, Minaj revealed that she and boyfriend Kenneth Petty had gotten their marriage license, suggesting nuptials are forthcoming ... and soon!
The couple started dating this past December, with Petty appearing in Minaj's latest music video for her single "Megatron."
Petty has been a controversial choice for some, with his criminal past -- he's been in prison for manslaughter and is a registered sex offender in New York for attempted rape when he was a teenager. Minaj and Petty used to date when she was a teen and his criminal past clearly doesn't concern her.
In the video, Petty shares a hot tub scene with a sinuous Minaj as she raps, "I f--k him like I miss him / He just came out of prison."
"I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness," Minaj said of Petty on her radio show. "It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I'm there, I don't want to compromise that for anyone or anything."
That clearly includes Cyrus, who has yet to respond to the very public shout-out.
