Nicki Minaj Pulls A Disappearing Act After Disc Jockey Diss
Hot 97 Summerjam is known for controversy from time to time. Yesterday was just another blemish on the concert after the headlining act pulled out.
It all started when New York’s Hot 97 disc jockey Peter Rosenberg made a comment during the Summerjam pre-festival. Rosenberg who has a passion for authentic Hip-Hop spoke to the “Hip-Hop” heads in the audience and dissed Minaj in return. Here’s what he had to say:
“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.”
Nicki followed up with a few tweets of her own
It may have been summer, but Nicki Minaj fans were left in the cold after the fiasco. After citing that “she wouldn’t go against Wayne’s word” Minaj granted her boss wishes and was a no-show. In addition erasing the entire Young Money act plus her special guests.
Flex (the instigator that he is) took shots at Nicki during his set. His Twitter handlers later retweeted the subliminal disses and jabs at Nicki then told everyone to listen to his show tonight at 7:00pm
This isn’t the first time the morning show or the station came under controversy. A few years back, DJ Cipha Sounds (pictured on the left) came under fire after some comments he made about the Haitian community.
Although Rosenberg’s comments were a direct diss, I believe it was a diss on the pop culture in reservation of Hip-Hop.
For the Hip-Hop enthusiasts, the show did have a few highlights. It was a great performance by Nas who managed to bring Lauryn Hill out as a special guest. It felt like the 90′s all over again!
As for Nicki, it looks like she’s taking her behind on a Starship and not returning to New York’s Hot 97 anytime soon!
