Minaj responds to ‘white rapper’ comment
Los Angeles, Dec 18 (IANS) Rapper Nicki Minaj has hit back at the critics who slammed her for saying that it’s a “great time to be a white rapper in America”.
A number of social media users slammed Minaj when she posted the comment, calling her a “racist”.
But Minaj hit back saying that she is blocking all “you sensitive d**k riders”, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“It is a great time to be a white rapper in America! I want to sign one for my new labels. You know anyone? I speak my mothaf***in mind and if you don’t like it get off my page d**k riders.”
Minaj made the white rapper comment on her Instagram account on iTunes’ hip-hop/rap songs chart on Sunday.
She wrote: “It’s a great time to be a white rapper in America, huh? These are the top 10 rap songs on US iTunes… Congratulations to Em (Eminem) on his new album.”
The post immediately sparked a debate with many fans supporting Minaj’s decision to call attention to the white rappers, but others criticised her for singling out white rappers.
In response, Minaj followed up her hit back by posting a now-deleted clip of hip-hop artiste J. Cole commenting on white musicians who infiltrate various music genres.
Nicki captioned the clip: “Be mad at this too. I work in the music business. Therefore, I post on new developments in the music industry. Whenever a black women speaks on anything she is labelled as ‘mad’, ‘angry’, and ‘bitter’.”
