Nicki Minaj fans were left disappointed tonight when Lil Wayne cancelled her performance at New York’s Hot 97 Summerjam concert.
To say Wayne was pissed off would be an understatement when he heard the Hot 97 host, Peter Rosenberg, diss Minaj in saying, she better not perform that “wack ass Starships” track. An hour before Minaj was to take the stage, that diss sent Wayne into action. He not only cancelled Nicki’s involvement, but tweeted, “Young Money ain’t doing summer jam.”
Nicki’s tweet that followed the cancellation spoke volumes towards how Rosenberg completely messed up his station’s night…
Wow. U niggaz just fucked up history. But the President has spoken. #YMCMB.
The only way Wayne was going to let Nicki take the stage was if Rosenberg apologized. Last we checked fans didn’t get to see the Barb in action. This is sad for the people who paid for a full show and would’ve left fully satisfied since it was confirmed that Foxy Brown was set to be a surprise guest with Minaj.
What Rosenberg said was unprofessional. No matter what you personally think of an artist, you don’t publically disrespect them when they are invited guests to your event. But the Young Money family didn’t act too classy when it came down to it either.
Jae Millz, also part of the YM family, tweeted “Radio personality with NO personality… f— n—a!!! & u ain’t even black…” Umm Jae Millz, how did race become apart of it?
Nicki also tweeted:
I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against wayne’s word. What he says, goes.
In the end it was definitely the fans who were let down, and for that Rosenberg should feel bad. But if it were me, I would’ve went out there and proved him wrong by doing the best performance possible.
