Yesterday Nicki Minaj was headlining Hot 97 Summer Jam 2012 but after some drama, the Starships singer called it quits. Before the concert started the Hot 97 ‘s morning show host Peter Rosenberg took the stage to get the crowd hyped and bashed Nicki Minaj and her Starships single while doing so. The morning show host said:
“I see the real Hip-Hop heads sprinkled in here. I see them. I know there are some chicks here waiting to sing ‘Starships’ later, I’m not talking to y’all right now. F-ck that bullsh-t. I’m here to talk about real Hip-Hop sh-t. People here to see A$AP Rocky today. People here to see ScHoolboy Q on this stage. That’s the sh-t I represent.”
Funkmaster Flex continued to bash Minaj later on that night when he took stage stating:
“We ain’t f–kin with commercial rappers no more! If you lost the f-ckin streets, its your fault! If you don’t go gold, it’s your fault! I’m dedicated to tearing you down! F-ck with me! We gon show you mama, you think you didn’t sell any records this time?”
When Lil Wayne heard the news, he called it quits for YMCMB: “Young Money ain’t doing Summer Jam”. Minaj who was excited for Summer Jam tweeting “History will be made @ Hot97 Summer Jam tonight. I really hope you’re there to witness it.” disappointingly tweeted after she heard the bad news:
“Wow. U ni–az just f-cked up history. But the President has spoken. #YMCMB. Had a HELL of a f-cking lineup. But we won’t b disrespected. I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against wayne’s word. What he says goes.”
That’s hella wrong to bash the artist that’s headlining your show right before the concert, although I do believe that Summer Jam is a concert celebrating real rap artist yet they asked her to headline. What do you guys think? Check out the disses at the link below!
