After the radio personality Peter Rosenberg calls Minaj's 'Starships' a 'wack', the Young Money femcee tweets she follows Lil Wayne's decision to pull out of the gig.
Nicki Minaj has scrapped her scheduled performance at Hot 97's Summer Jam 2012. The Harajuku Barbie bowed out of the hip-hop summit at the last minutes after the radio's DJ Peter Rosenberg dissed her song "Starships" at the concert that took place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday, June 3.
The radio personality reportedly told the crowd that Minaj "better not perform that wack a** 'Starships' track," before introducing Oakland rapper Kendrick Lamar on the stage. He was additionally said to have called the "Stupid Hoe" songstress "no longer 'real hip-hop'."
Her mentor Lil Wayne did not take the diss lightly and quickly wrote on Twitter, "Young Money ain't doing summer jam." Hinting that she would follow Weezy's decision, Minaj posted on her own Twitter, "Wow. U n***az just f***ed up history. But the President has spoken. #YMCMB."
"I go above and beyond for my fans. But won't ever go against wayne's word. What he says, goes," she added. "Had a HELL of a f***ing lineup. But we won't b disrespected."
While the 29-year-old femcee did not appear for her scheduled gig, another Young Money artist Tyga did his set at 7 P.M.. Other artists taking the stage at the Summer Jam were Young Jeezy, Waka Flocka Flame and Trey Songz among others.
