Nicki Minaj demands Hot 97 never play her music again after claims that Rosenberg's comments this summer ruined her career.
This summer, a comment from Peter Rosenberg calling Minaj's song "Starships" "bullshit" prompted her to not perform at Hot 97's Summer Jam. After a few artists weighed in on the altercation and apologies were issued, things seemed to have settled.
Not so. Hot 97's program director Ebro said that Rosenberg's comments ruined Minaj's career, as her Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up only moved 36 000 units upon its release. Ebro stated on his show that the YMCMB first lady called him from overseas to insult him and request he never play her music on air again.
"I said, 'Rosenberg ruined Nicki Minaj's career' - evidence suggests based on this Re-Up release, the things (Rosenberg) said about her being pop and selling out and making that pop music came back to haunt her. Now, she puts six rap records on this album and it didn't sell… I get the phone call, the international number pops up, I answer the call, it's my friend Nicki Minaj, who then starts to proclaim how I'm fake. She used every woman's stab she could - 'I thought you were a man, you're a cornball, I thought we were friends, you're fake, everyone told me you were fake'… I said, 'Nicki, I'm helping you. I'm keeping you in the hip-hop conversation. This hip-hop thing's a competition; you're either ringing, or you're not, and just like I said yesterday, i love you, boo and I'll dust you off and make sure this thing is popping off again.' And she goes, 'Don't ever play my music again'… Of course we are (still playing Nicki Minaj), I love Nicki Minaj."
