On Tuesday, hip-hop commentator and friend of Nicki Minaj, Joe Budden, on his podcast, expressed his desire for the Queen Radio to return and asked what happened to the popular radio show. “I want to know what happened to Queen Radio… Where is Queen Radio? It was only the biggest thing outside of OVO Radio.” Hidden said. He continued, “Queen Radio is important for culture. Sorry! It should be there or we should get an announcement as to why it’s not there.”

Joe also speculated as to why the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap may be taking such a long break from music. He says that despite not making music, she has been doing important things in her life, most notable being getting married and becoming a mother.
