Rapper Drake has reportedly chosen a side in the feud brewing between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus — and it’s not Nicki’s.
Hollywood Life reports that the “Know Yourself” rapper was impressed with how Miley Cyrus handled herself during Nicki Minaj’s outburst during the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.
An insider opened up about the feud and Drake’s rumored decision to side with the former Hannah Montana star over his Young Money label mate.
“He’s giving Miley 10’s across the board for the way she handled herself. No shade to Nicki, he still rides hard for her, but he’s team Miley in this feud!”
According to the report, Drake may even be considering taking things with Miley Cyrus to a whole new level by teaming up with her in the studio for a tag team diss track.
“He’s thinking about getting in the studio with Miley and straight up obliterating Nicki and Meek on a dope… track. Yeah, he likes that idea. A lot!”

During Sunday night’s award show, Nicki Minaj ended her acceptance speech for the “Best Hip-Hop Video” award by taunting host Miley Cyrus and calling her out of her name.
Instead of firing back at Nicki Minaj with insults and offensive names, Miley Cyrus seemed to take the high road with her response.
“We all do interviews. We all know how they manipulate s**t.”
An insider told E! News that Miley Cyrus saved her yelling and cursing for when she was backstage and away from the cameras as she headed to her dressing room.
Nicki Minaj’s fans have apparently defended the “Truffle Butter” rapper via social media by taunting Miley Cyrus with “Miley, What’s Good?” comments, according to Us Weekly.

However, an insider told Hollywood Life that Miley Cyrus is not afraid of Nicki Minaj and will deal with this feud accordingly if it escalates any further.
“Miley thinks Nicki’s bark is stronger than her bite. Miley’s basically grown up in this industry and has been fighting bigger and more powerful people and bullies like Nicki for a long time. Nicki’s light weight.”
As of right now, neither Drake nor Miley Cyrus has confirmed whether or not they are working on a diss track together.
Keep in mind, though, that Drake has established a track record of releasing diss tracks without advance warning — a point which was proven with both of the diss tracks that he made for Meek Mill.
