Nicki Minaj Skips Out on Hot 97

If you were expecting to see Nicki Minaj and the rest of the Young Money camp at tonight’s Hot 97 Summer Jam, then you probably know already that you are out of luck.

Nicki abruptly pulled out of the show after Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg made several comments about her that she and Lil Wayne, who actually instructed Nicki not to perform, found offensive.

The first happened during a pre-show telecast in which Rosenberg said something to the effect of “Shout out to all my real hip-hop heads and none of these Starship artists.” He later followed up his insult during the actual concert, once again showing his distaste for “Starships” by calling the song “wack.”

Shortly after Rosenberg’s comments, Lil Wayne announced via Twiiter that “Young Money ain’t doing summer jam.” Nicki followed up with her own tweet, saying “I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against Wayne’s word. What he says, goes.”

Nicki went on to thank her fans for their support and announced she’d next be performing Sweden.

  1. I don’t know LIVERPOOL. Though I feel for the fans who may have paid to see her, it was wrong for Hot 97 to use her name to sell tickets and then insult her, not once, but twice.

    Radio DJs didn’t used to do that. Thes cats today are becoming more and more disrespectful, especially these urban DJs.

  2. That was wrong of the DJ’s to do, but i don’t agree with Nicki not doing the show. She had fans who paid and traveled to come see her. If someone says to you that you are garbage or that you are wack……You don’t back out as if you’re a punk. You go on that stage and show them why your on top right now.

  3. That was wrong what the DJ’s did. But it was also wrong that Nicki Backed out. When she had fans who traveled and who paid to come see only her. Who cares what Wayne said. Without your fans your nothing. If someone says out infront of everybody that your wack or that your song is garbage…..You dont back out like a punk. You go on that stage and prove why your on top. She should of showed up and showed out.

  4. I woulda went on stage and gave him a taste of his own medicine, turned the crowd on HIM, clowned HIM and let HIM know how many of my fans were in the audience.

    i can only speak from the point of view of a ticket purchaser just coming off of 2 years of unemployment, dont mess with my lil change i spend on tickets when i could have gotten gas.

    but i DO undertand standing your ground, but not this way.

  5. I support Nicki. At least she did her show in Philly. No insults here.

  7. Thats right liverpool. If u cant beat em, join em. She should of came out there and showed how tough her skin is. And she from queens.

  8. If I were Nicki, I would have went out on that stage and performed Starships 11 times! Like Kanye and Jay-Z do with ‘N-*-*a’s in Paris.’ I mean they would just have to understand she is there for her fans. I think what they did and said was disrespectful and I am not a fan of Nicki at all. But I would have performed for my fans and still stood my ground. If she can be interviewed about the situation by Flex on the radio after the fact, then she can perform on stage for the people who paid to see her. Nothing even got accomplished by the interview… in the beginning it sounded like she was about her fans but in the end, it seemed like it was about money.

  9. I just watched a video of Flex going in on Nicki at the concert and it was so disrespectful. Flex is clearly a well trained lapdog willing to do the dirty work Rosenberg wasn’t man enough to do himself.
