Listen to this article
Nicki Minaj has come under fire for scribbling out Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, and the City Girls name in a screenshot shared on her IG stories, where she was being praised for her impact in the music industry.
The article which read: "Yet, what’s most astonishing and powerful about Nicki’s impact on Hip-Hop is her presence and, sometimes, the lack thereof" went onto detail her impact in the rap game.
"Whether she’s going on an unexpected freestyle or guest-feature run, giving a rare interview, or speaking her mind in a wild Twitter rant, Nicki Minaj’s presence — be it aural, digital, or visual — is absolutely enthralling, and when she’s on hiatus, you can tell" the article continued.
"Despite the welcomed contributions of women like Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion City Girls, and Doja Cat over the past few years, female rap still feels incomplete without Nicki Minaj’s presence and output, and that alone illustrates how important she is to Hip-Hop, as a genre, and as a culture".
Fans of the the 'Do We Have A Problem?' rapper branded her 'immature' and 'childish', saying that she could could have simply posted the article without throwing shade.
One fan wrote: "She didn’t have to post this at all. She could have cut the graphic above that line. She did it to be messy".
Another one commented: "Crossing out doja cat like she didn’t need her to get her first number one song lol".
A third fan added: "You couldn’t just tweet a link to article alone… why go through all this, I don’t get it".
Why does Nicki try to gatekeep rap from other women in the industry? She has an issue with not getting respect but failed to ever give it to the likes of Lil Kim? 🥱🥱🥱🥱 https://t.co/gxytdChTro— sophs (@xyzsoph) March 22, 2022
this woman stands for “lifting other women up” & “supporting other female rappers” but she keeps acting shady af towards every one of them it’s embarrassing (plus we know you’re impactful you don’t need to tweet it everyday to stay relevant in the conversation) https://t.co/a5nVB1A4cb— ✿ (@hausofkuchi) March 22, 2022
Crossing out doja cat even though she’s been running circles around her for the past couple years https://t.co/gmvQWwTLKz— crazy crazy big mac 👒 (@Big_maccc455) March 22, 2022
As fans as are aware, Nicki has had beef over the years with Cardi, Megan and the City Girls, only recently squashing her with the JT & Caresha. Neither of the ladies crossed out in the article have responded.
