Nicki Minaj Slams Trolls For Twisting Her Words About Reintroducing Female Hip Hop
Best female rapper, Nicki Minaj has never been afraid of setting the records straight.
Recently, XXL included her in the list of hip hop artists who shaped the industry, and she was the only female on the list . That issue stirred heated conversation as trolls and fans battled, and many critics asked why no other female lyricists like Lil Kim and Missy Elliot made the list.
Things went completely awkward after blogs quoted Nicki as saying she introduced female hip hop to pop culture, and that was all the ammunition her haters needed to troll her on Social Media .
But Nicki Minaj is not letting it slide past.
Posting on her Instagram, the queen of hip hop shared a video of what she actually said, noting that what she actually did was reintroduce female rap during a period of drought.
Which is the truth any hip hop historian can confirm.
“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. ? blogs & tv shows don’t care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention… at anyone’s expense,” she said.
She then went on to clarify her Statement to those she feels are too dimwitted to understand what she said.

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. 😅 blogs & tv shows don't care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention… at anyone's expense. Imagine me saying I made female rappers mainstream when there were so many women who already had platinum albums under their belts. 🙃 Lauryn sold 10 million off one album, Eve had platinum singles w/Alicia, Gwen Stefani, her own tv show & clothing line. It doesn't get more mainstream/pop than Missy's biggest singles. Foxy&Kim had platinum albums & shaped the sound of NY female rappers, Latifah had her own sitcom, Trina was on billboard with hits, etc-🙂 I appreciate the love but I never said that. 🦄🦄🦄 now what I DID say is right here for anyone w/their own brain to decipher words on their own. I know it's hard in the social media band wagon era, but try. It's fun. 🙈. When I came out, there had been a drought of a few years where NO female rap album had gone platinum, 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" female rapper back to POP CULTURE. Showed big business we were major players in the game just like the boys were. ♥️😍😘 love you guys for holding me down but what's true is true & whats not is just simply not. 🙂 update your blogs & tv shows with what I actually said please 🙄🤣. I can't believe this lil interview made it to tv. Haha. See u guys on tour next year. I got a cpl BIG surprises. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! 😘
