Ms Banks says a Nicki Minaj collaboration is definitely going to happen.

The 24-year-old rising London rapper first caught the attention of the “Chun-Li” hitmaker in 2017, when Minaj tweeted her verse on “Yu Zimme Rmx.” The track also features Lisa Mercedez and the original creator of the song, Stylo G, who invited her to join her on tour.

The pair has teased their fans about getting together to record a track for some time now, and Banks has said it’s going to happen at some point.

In an exclusive clip shared with BANG Showbiz from her VOXI “Hot Sauce Tour” interview, the rapper said, “You can expect a collab with me and Nicki Minaj.

“The Barbz (Nicki’s fans) are always running me down and asking me questions, but I am always working. Something will be coming soon.”

Banks also has a follow-up to her 2018 mixtape, The Coldest Winter Ever, in the works.

She said, “I’m working on a mixtape at the moment, so I should have another project out before the summer.”

The “Hood B—–” hitmaker recently spoke about how Minaj’s public appraisal of her music has made people take notice of her.

She said, “You think you’re good and are comfortable in your craft, but when the biggest female rapper in the world says ‘this girl is good’, it makes people pay attention.

“If someone out of the scene can say ‘this girl has talent’, then people said we should get behind her more.

“It changed [my career] for the better, she opened me up to a new audience, people that love female rap.”

Two years ago, Minaj tweeted her lyric, “Yuh nuh affi ask when ya see me. See di house and cyar dat ah fimi. (sic)”

She then asked Banks, “U gotta f— w/me when we bring the tour to the UK next yr. Had all my ppl reciting the verse over n over last night. Last 2 bars is a mood (sic)”
