Nicki Minaj caught backlash earlier this year when she used a picture of Malcolm X as a representation for her single “Lookin Ass N*ggas.”
Some of those critics included the civil rights leader’s family. Ilyasah Shabazz, Malcolm’s daughter, called the use of the photo “disrespectful.”
Minaj decided to briefly mention the situation in her latest release “Chi-Raq.” On the song the Young Money artist raps, “Malcolm X daughter came at me/Lookin ass n***as ain’t happy.”
