Lauryn Hill Pens Open Letter to Atlanta Fans, Quotes Nicki Minaj

Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill, who left ATLiens angry after arriving three hours late to a show in January, reached out to her fans in a letter posted on her recently created Twitter account, quoting Nicki Minaj as she explained that she got off on the “wrong foot” and planned on making it up with another gig.

“I had to come back. I’M HERE and excited for the opportunity to do what should have been done the last time,” wrote an apologetic Ms. Hill. “Starting off on the wrong foot can always be easily rectified by putting another foot down, especially in a ‘monster shoe’ (Nicki Minaj quotable). Come Again!”

The Grammy-winning singer is set to make up her performance tomorrow evening at Atlanta’s Center Stage. Following the gig, the former Fugee is scheduled to play in Oahu, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Denver before wrapping her “Moving Target: Extended Playdate Series” at New Orleans’ Jazz and Heritage Festival on May 7.

    jeremydante Reply:

    @Lyfechanges, im sayn though, she is damaging her artistic worth by showing up late & acting out the ways she does. im slowly starting to lose respect for her. & why is she even doing shows if she ain’t working on any new material? she looks crazy.

    She the understated queen of the music world. Miseducation was FYA and she aint even trippin on the Minaj front.

    Kim could learn a thing or ten from her

    Face Reply:

    @Troyfuss, Well Nicki isn’t trying to be a Lauryn Hill 2.0, neither is she getting subliminals thrown at.

    So I’m sure if that wasn’t the case, Kim would do the same.

    [Reply]

    ChrisJR Reply:

    @Face, No one threw subliminals at Kim either she just wants to assume that every time Nicki gets cocky and says some cocky sht its about her, Nicki would have no reason to throw shots at her.

    [Reply]

    HoustonGirl Reply:

    @ChrisJR, You obviously a brain-washed Nicki fan.Nicki been throwing shots since 2007 on her mixtapes,she even said her name,”Iam coming for your crown Kim.”Then Nicki said “All they female rappers that been around for 10 years need to sit down.”Now Iam pretty sure if Lauren Hill heard that she would had something to say about Nicki as well and she would have every right too.

    @HoustonGirl,and you are a brain wash Kim stan,ge your info up before you try to correct are tear down someone,nicki said that b1tch with the crown better run it like cris brown she was talking about remy ma,it wasn’t nothing serius,and nicki never be specific she always just fling something out there and if you want to jump on it you do so simple as that she never called anyone name,stop fabricating stuff to just justify the point you are trying to make.

    watevea Reply:

    @HoustonGirl, and again do your research she said ” im coming for the crown kim ” like almost 10 years ago that wasnt in no 2007 and how is that a diss she simply means ” im going to be that top bitch just watch” ..males rappers say they coming for the top spot all the time and it aint no diss why when nicki do its its a diss you act like nicki said ” kim cant rap she sucks “…&nicki was just on her super COCKY shit back then thats all she really believed in her self…and again kim waited till after she told nicki in jan of 09 ( before nicki blew up) that everything was good with them but then attacks her in jun 10 when nicki blew up just to get some shine

    and i also think its funny how kim fans seem to forget that kim came at nicki orginally saying ” nicki needs to pay homage “when clearly nicki had done that SOME many times so then when people start saying that was a stupid reason to go at nicki … then all of a sudden like 2 weeks later she came talking about nicki use to diss me …..stop lying kim just wanted some shine off nickis name period

    Steve Reply:

    @HoustonGirl, Please stop making BS up “She dissed her when she said I’m coming for the Crown” so If someone told Nicki “Nick I’m comin for the crown girl, & thats the word” You’re saying thats a diss ? GTFO here I would be honored if someone was basically tellin me I was at the Top of what I was doin. But since U Krim fans are just so dumb as ur idol in believing everything is a shot You can keep if movin

    [Reply]

    whatever Reply:

    @Face, STFU cause if nicki was trying to be krim she would be talking about sucking dick &fucking every day song and being explict and would have a deep voice and would have gotten her whole face redone

    and nicki wouldnt be throwing subliminals at krim if she wouldnt have started her dumb complaining last summer 4 no reason

    Wasalu Reply:

    @whatever, hahaha nice….completely agree

    lemme just say that a nicki feature on lauryn’s new album (really hoping here) would be fire

    [Reply]

    HoustonGirl Reply:

    @whatever,”If nicki was trying to be krim she would be talking about sucking dick &fucking every day?” You need to listen to Nicki’s mixtape from back in 2007.She said stuff like,”Iam cumming on your d*ck and licking it off” and she made a song called “Coochi Shop” and not mention she named one of her mixtapes,”Biggest Freak.”Also Nicki been throwing shots since 2007 due your research.

    Face Reply:

    @HoustonGirl, Of course these silly girls don’t know shit about this girl, her apparent shots at Kim, or the former personas she used to take on. They’re dummies. Thanks for shedding light.

    Face Reply:

    @whatever, First thing, WTF is a krim?

    Wasn’t on Freaky Girl remix? Talking about giving “good top,” and other things? Oh ok.

    Anyway, you’re a dummy.

    watevea Reply:

    @Face,@HoustonGirl ive been listening to nicki forever i know what she did on her MIXTAPES and BTW nicki never had a mixtape called biggest freak SO u do your research ….im talking about in this very moment& FACT is at the time that when kim started going at her that nicki was NOT talking about sex…kim waited till nicki blew up and wasnt acting anything like her to come at her and nicki was just REALLY COCKY & talked alot of shit back vaguely

    [Reply]

    Face Reply:

    @watevea, Does it matter WHEN she was talking about sex or specifics? You said Nicki wasn’t being quite sexually explicit in her music, when she was. Period. Moving on…

    Kim didn’t randomly choose Minaj to talk about. Only her sad ass fans would believe that. There has been lines in Nicki’s songs. Plus Ray J started talking about her. Not Kim.

    What’s ultimately sad is ppl really believe th stuff that you’re saying.

    O. Reply:

    @Face, Lauryn hill’s got plenty of copycats; india arie etc. She never talks about; ‘oh they try’n dress like me, they making nu soul music, looking like african mamas etc’ U know why, cuz she aint got a copyright on it! Neither does lil kim She doesnt own jack sh.. Just live nd let live, let da girl get dat paper too/

    Uhh When did the story become about the beef between Nicki and Kim. truthfully I like both of them Kim more then Nicki but that fact is if y’all pay real close attention it’s y’all who beefin its Nickifans V. Kimfans I mean the only way I knew about this beef was from the fans beefing with each other about the beef between Nicki and Kim.

    But Anyway Lauryn Hill is tight loved her first album needs to do another on and I kinda wish she get rid of the afro and go easy on the mascara

    I thought she actually quoted a line, this was absolutely a reach. I’m sure if someone was dissing and ultimately looking like your long lost daughter/twin, most of you would have a different tune.

    Also, for the “Lauryn Lovers,” I hope yall talk all the way to the stores when she decided to drop an album. Talk is cheap.

    Anyway, Lauryn, ppl are waiting on your return. HURRY UP.

    It wasnt a diss you idiots. It was a show of respect. She’s quoting nicki from Kanye’s “monster” song… its a compliment. Why are you people confrontational?

    Would love Nicki & Lauryn on either of there Sophomore albums (its kinda wierd they’re in the same boat) but They are the Top Selling Female Rap Artist at the Moment :D.

    well, at least she decided to “come again” with the attitude. That shows maturity. God is all about second (and more) chances, so I’m feeling this.

    Would love a new album from her. This generation is so “microwaved” and quick to move on when we have the opportunity to appreciate and savor goodness while it’s still here.

    Not a nicki fan so I’m not interested in that part. It was just two words.

    [Reply]

    @KNUCK, If Lauryn Hill qouted “just two” of Your words you probably would be happy as shit too.

    Whoa, first of all, Nicky’s been throwing shots at Kim ever since she came out. Bitch stole her poses, and re-made her songs. Nicky wanna be just like Kim. Nicky fans need to do their homework.

    Nicky think cause she basically the only female out there, she can disrespect other female rappers. Remy said she coming for her when she gets out of jail also. Icky Nicky needs to sit down and read a book.

    She copied everything about Kim. From her nasty lyrics to her image.

    [Reply]

  28. TeamKim

    And how do they wanna be like Lauryn Hill? Those are soul singers, and Lauryn is more Hip Hoppy.

I feel that you just can do with some p.c. to power the message home a little bit, but instead of that, that is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
