Old School Pepa Schools New School Nicki Minaj

Pepa of Salt N Pepa fame had some advice and some critique of fellow rapper Nicki Minaj. I am biased because I am an old school girl, so I agree with Pepa. I do think Nicki Minaj is young and refreshing, but her style is borrowed from so many sources. So I agree with Pepa when she says Nicki Minaj needs to find her message.

“She reminds me of [Lil’ Kim]. Bold and you know… she’s young. And a lot of people are like ‘Oh what do you feel about her because of the message?’, but to me she hasn’t learned the message yet.”

Pepa says finding that audience balance is especially tough with a male-dominated team, like Nicki’s Young Money crew.

“Not everyone’s role model material, but we do have a sense of responsibility because kids listen more to us than they would their parents. But [Nicki’s] young, so how’s she gonna enlighten?’ She’s new, she’s excited and what happens when you have a male camp backing you? Yeah, you might be singing those kinds of lyrics,” she says with a laugh. “That’s what happens when you have a male camp dictating how you should be.” {Check out the rest of the interview at Vibe}
