Nicki Minaj responds to Forbes after they ran an article claiming Iggy Azalea runs hip hop, and speaks on the possibility of a Remy Ma collaboration.
Yesterday, Forbes published a questionable article bearing the title, “Hip-Hop Is Run By A White, Blonde, Australian Woman,” in reference to Iggy Azalea. Troll-ish headlines for reasonable pieces are an unfortunate reality of the race for clicks, but the content of the piece was also off, claiming Nicki Minaj had been "oddly quiet" lately, despite the YM rapper releasing plenty of new songs over the last few months.
After a considerable social media backlash, the publication decided to change the title to the more appropriate, “Hip-Hop’s Unlikely New Star: A White, Blonde, Australian Woman”.
Minaj was enlightened to the existence of the piece in her interview with the Breakfast Club today. When she was told that magazine was forced to change the title, she cackled with laughter, before responding to the claim. "Listen, all Forbes needs to worry about is my finances and when I’m going to be selling Myx Fusion for $250 million," she said, smugly. "That’s all they need to worry about. We rely on Hip Hop journalism and blogs for THAT kind of information. So we appreciate that, but no thank you."
"That would make me very happy," she said of the possibility of working with Remy, following her release from prison later this year. "That would be very exciting. As soon as she get out, Rem holla at me."
