Nicki Minaj Denies Saying She Made Female Rappers Mainstream


The 'Anaconda' rapper says that media are remixing her words and offers one hundred thousand dollars to anyone who can find the comment.
Nicki Minaj couldn't hold it any longer. After causing an uproar with her comment in an interview with XXL Magazine, the "Beez in the Trap" rapper took it to Instagram to clarify her statement. She posted a wordy message on Instagram on October 17, denying that she ever made the comment, "I made female rappers mainstream."

"If you can find the part where I said, 'I made female rappers mainstream,' I'll give you $100,000,00," she wrote. "Blogs & TV shows don't care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention..."

She then began listing all other female rappers' achievements, including Gwen Stefani's and Missy Elliott's. "Imagine me saying I made female rappers mainstream when there were so many women who already had platinum albums under their belts," the "No Fraud" rapper wrote. "[Lauryn Hill] sold 10 million off one album, Eve had platinum singles with [Alicia Keys], Gwen Stefani, her own TV show and clothing line."

She added, "It doesn't get more mainstream/pop than Missy's biggest singles. had platinum albums and shaped the sound of NY female rappers. [Queen Latifah] had her own sitcom, Trina was on billboard with hits."

She clarified what she actually said in the interview, pointing out that she "reintroduced" the "successful" female rapper back to pop culture.

"When I came out, there had been a drought of a few years where NO female rap album had gone platinum," she continued. "Females weren't getting budgets, the industry did NOT believe in the female rapper anymore. They had stopped generating MONEY for labels. Ask any rap historian or just anyone with a brain. These are facts and nothing but the facts. So I 'REINTRODUCED' the 'successful' rapper back to POP CULTURE. Showed big business we were major players in the game just like the boys were."

I see ppl remixing my words so let me post "exactly" what I said for the intelligent ones in the back. Now, if you can find the part where I said "I made female rappers mainstream", I'll give you $100,000.00. ๐Ÿ˜… blogs & tv shows don't care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention... at anyone's expense.

"There wasn't a big female rap presence when I got in," she told the magazine. "So my role was reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture.
