Fresh from the Summer Jam beef over at Hot 97, Nicki Minaj is still having to explain a decision that has left many of her fans disappointed and angry. After Lil’ Wayne shot down a YMCMB appearance at the radio’s annual and widely known concert due to disrespectful remarks made by a notable DJ; the social network has been buzzing with who’s Team Nicki and who’s Team Hot 97. And the division is bigger than Barbies and old Hip Hop heads who have already pledged allegiance to Lil’ Kim, the Queen B of Hip Hop.
When Funkmaster Flex took to the stage during the Summer Jam and took shots at Nicki for her last minute withdraw from the roster, the internet went crazy; only increasing the animosity between Hot 97 and YMCMB.
Eventually, Funkmaster Flex calmed down and reached out to Nicki for an interview, so both sides could clear up what happened on the day that has placed an entire radio station in an unfavorable light by supporters and members of Nicki’s incredibly large fan base.
The interview started off intense, but eventually genuine answers were given from both sides. Highlights from the interview includes Nicki shutting down any rumors that she did not show up out of fear of being approached by a nemesis, and Funkmaster Flex revealing that is not scared of Lil’ Wayne and has no problem admitting that Wayne made a bad call in stripping the show of his artists.
With so many different theories as to why the show really went down, based off this interview, is it a clearer picture of who was really in the wrong?
