If you haven’t heard by now, Lil Wayne made Nicki Minaj pull out of her headlining performance obligation at the Hot 97 Summer Jam after NYC radio personality, Peter Rosenberg made some remarks regarding hip hop versus pop dissing her song, “Starship.”
His words exactly…
Well Wayne got wind of his comments and forced Young Money to pull out altogether.
Nicki then tweets:
Wow. U niggaz just fucked up history. But the President has spoken. #YMCMB
Well all was not lost. Since Nicki pulled out, Nas was able to do a whole set instead of one song and he brought out Lauryn Hill to which the crowd went crazy. She performed, “Ready or Not,” “Lost Ones” and her collabo with Nas “If I Ruled the World.”
This morning on the Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg radio show, Rosenberg stood by his comments and felt that Nicki had an obligation to her fans. Angry parents and fans called in to Hot 97 this morning to express their disappointment with Nicki especially having purchased colorful wigs and crazy outfits in anticipation to see her perform live at Summer Jam.
Anyhow, instead Nicki spent the night getting drunk with Foxy Brown and Camron. It’s now coming out that she planned to have Foxy perform with her. I guess that was a part of her historic performance.
You can argue with whether Nicki Minaj imitates Lil Kim or not, but this is eerily similar to Kimmy’s performance at the Paradise Theatre where she brought out Eve and Missy Elliott. Since when does Nicki show female emcees love? Not until Kim started doing it.
