Drake alluded to the split in his song Tuscan Leather, which features the line, "I dropped the ball on some personal s**t, I need to embrace it," but he insists the labelmates are friends again.
He tells MTV News, "That line in Tuscan Leather isn't exactly where I am in my life right now, but, like, a year ago, eight months, seven months ago, it was how I felt. I'd done something wrong and I wasn't speaking to her.
"I think the dialogue actually between us was already opened up. I had already solved that issue. I wrote that a while ago and I kinda felt guilty changing it."
Drake hasn't revealed what it was he did that upset his pal, and he admits he has yet to speak to Minaj since the song first created a buzz: "I haven't talked to her since it's been out. I'm not sure (what she thinks about it)."
