Lil Wayne gave, what he thought, was a good explanation for why he urged Nicki Minaj to cancel her HOT 97 Summerjam performance after being dissed by radio DJ Rosenberg. Here’s what he had to say.
I don’t know about you all but this is all I heard, whomp whomp, whomp whomp, whomp whomp, whomp whomp whomp.
Just like Nicki Minaj I don’t think Wayne can come up with a plausible explanation for cancelling the show and disappointing fans. Over a DJ diss? Hip Hop artists have heard harsher words. In this no one won and the fans suffered the most.
Nicki Minaj was scheduled to headline this year’s annual Hot 97 Summer jam, Sunday night, when suddenly she decided she would not perform at the last minute.
The rapper tweeted, “Wow. U niggaz just f*cked up history. But the President has spoken. #YMCMB.”
She then wrote, “Ebro call Wayne. Da kid gon b @ da telly…”
Apparently Hot 97′s radio personality Peter Rosenberg dissed the rapper earlier during the show spewing his disdain for her music (her single “Starships”) as an attempt to “save” Hip Hop.
What encouraged Nicki’s decision to pull the plug? Her label president and rapper Lil’ Wayne. Wayne also tweeted his own message, “Young Money ain’t doing summer jam.”, at the same time another Young Money artist, Tyga, head to the stage to perform.
