Nicki Minaj seems to be under a little fire from last week’s interview with XXL in which she claimed to have had a role in “reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture.” Now when have we ever known Nicki Minaj to ever stay quiet about redicule? Well except when Remy Ma quiet her for a while with ‘SHEITHER” But Nicki didn’t stay quiet this time as she took to IG yesterday to address this backlash. Here is what she said.
“I see ppl remixing my words so let me post “exactly” what I said for the intelligent ones in the back,”
“Now, if you can find the part where I said “I made female rappers mainstream”, I’ll give you $100,000.00. Blogs & tv shows don’t care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention… at anyone’s expense.
“Imagine me saying I made female rappers mainstream when there were so many women who already had platinum albums under their belts. Lauryn sold 10 million off one album, Eve had platinum singles w/Alicia, Gwen Stefani, her own tv show & clothing line. It doesn’t get more mainstream/pop than Missy’s biggest singles.
“Foxy&Kim had platinum albums & shaped the sound of NY female rappers, Latifah had her own sitcom, Trina was on billboard with hits, etc. I appreciate the love but I never said that. now what I DID say is right here for anyone w/their own brain to decipher words on their own. I know it’s hard in the social media band wagon era, but try. It’s fun.”
Well alright Nicki Minaj, I guess that clears that up.
