Some unfortunate souls dared suggest Nicki Minaj’s a** is to thank for her success in the rap game, and now she handed their a**es back to them! Nicki made it clear on Twitter that those ignorant opinions were wrong and NOT welcome.
Nicki Minaj, 33, is one of the most talented rappers in the industry, but apparently some people think that her success is just because of her incredible butt. This is clearly not the case, and Nicki took to Twitter to set the record straight with these sexists. Say it, Nicki!
The situation began when Bossip started a Twitter discussion on December 11 about the lack of female rappers in the industry. Of course, the back-and-forth got heated quickly, and the whole thing derailed when the gossip site decided to retweet a user who dissed Nicki for allegedly not paying her dues to achieve her success. “Yep, men are visual creatures they don’t care if you can sing…That’s why nicki had to buy an ass to blow up!
#Fact,” the user tweeted. Gross! You can prove him wrong and buy her awesome album RIGHT HERE!
Nicki went on a tear after seeing this remark, and decided to school the user and Bossip on a little bit of her personal experiences in the industry. She derided the inherent sexism in rap, as well. It was an enlightening series of tweets that definitely put them in their place. Hopefully, the user knows not to mess with Nicki now!
The initial hater never responded to Nicki, but Bossip certainly did! No apology from the site, but an acknowledgement of the situation: “Somehow our extremely general question about women rappers has turned into a very specific @NICKIMINAJ conversation. Gotta love this app…” They followed it with a series of tweets that poked fun at the Twitter feud, using the lyrics from Nicki’s verse in “Monster.” First things first, she’s gonna eat your brains, guys!
