Lauryn Hill Supports Nicki Minaj’s Summer Jam Decision

Nicki Minaj and Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill was rumored to be a guest of Nicki Minaj’s at Summer Jam, but the former Fugees member is going on the record to clear up the rumors. In a letter posted on Twitter, Ms. Hill explained that she was not scheduled to be Nicki’s guest at Sunday’s show. Instead, Nas was the one who invited her to perform.

She also addressed Nicki’s absence and supported her decision to pull out from the concert after being dissed by Hot 97 jock Peter Rosenberg. “We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect,” wrote Hill.

Nicki responded to her letter on Twitter. “Thank u Lauryn. Nas was coming out on my set, u were coming out 2 perform w/him. That was within my set that was going 2 continue w/foxy,” she tweeted. “Coming from Lauryn it means the world. No one deserves this treatment. We’re all out here working. Have respect for your guests.”

Read what Lauryn had to say below.

No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don’t have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else ‘we’ (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!!

Ms. Lauryn Hill

    @Matt,
    Lauryn was never scheduled to be on Nicki’s set.
    Nicki said she was.
    Nicki told a str8-up lie. AGAIN.
    and her no-better fans continue to support her it’s really sad.

    @QBN, idiot, Nas was Nicki’s guest so how he going to invite her when he’s a guest himself. So wouldn’t they both fall in the same category as Nicki’s guest? Since Nicki was the headliner.

    Queen Hill has spoken! I agree 100% with Nicki’s decision. Women especially in Hip-Hop have been disrespected & downgraded forever. Instead of them coming together to show TRUE unity at times like this, they rather fight instead of conquer together.

    So we’re all going to forget the fact that Nicki LIED about having Lauryn on her line-up just so that she could make her fans feel like crap.
    Even tho her fans came out to see her,due to her being a low-self esteem asshole she cancelled her show.
    This site must be on her payroll. Always co-signing her immature ways

    Typical Nicki hater here. Must be that public education you have :D Like they said if Nicki is the headliner and she invites Nas and he then decides to bring someone on with him he has to get the ok with the headliner first DUH!! So his guest are also the guest of Nicki. Its simple english here but by your “black barbie’s cousin” name doesn’t seem you can comprehend anything. Maybe if you know the alphabet and the third letter you can see your butt out of the convo LOL But I’m wagering a bet that you don’t and you’ll comment back further more making yourself look even more of an less educated person :)) Kudos HA

    @Black Barbie’s Cousin, She didnt lie. She never once said LAURYN AND I will perform together. or…I called Lauryn Hill to perform my set. She listed the people that were going to be involved in some sort of way with her set. Nicki was probably going to do her song with nas…and then nas brings out Lauryn and do the fugees throwback, and then Nicki continued on with foxy. Sit down, shut up. No one lied. stop jumping on the bandwagon of hate. And she pulled out of the show cause she was disrespected, if hot97 bitching that nicki ain’t “real hip hop” then why’d you put her as the headliner? Oh…maybe because she could fill the stadium? maybe because she has the biggest fan base out of any of those rappers? but then…you gonna disrespect her. I think we can all agree that was not the place nor time, to express your negative opinion on her music to the crowd she was about to perform to. Everyone wants her to stay true to the streets, but the reality is…the streets ain’t buying music. PERIOD. just because shes doing many different things, and trying things outside the box doesnt make her a sell out. Nicki could drop a dope ass mixtape, next month if she wanted. She proved herself. All your hate got her a World Tour, an Endorsement with Pepsi and Adidas. 12million followers, and a style icon. Starships is such a terrible song, yet it has sold 8million copies worldwide? c’mon son. Go take a nap. i’ll wake you when Lil’ Kim gets a single to break the BB top 10. DONE.

    Dopeness Reply:

    @Dopeness, And to add on to that, If Lil Kim dropped a dope ass track, i’d be the first to admit it. Music is music.But kim running her mouth, if you the “Queen” you should sit on your throne without a care in the world yet you bickering about summer jam when you on tour? IN NEBRASKA! let’s be serious. If all her hate went into making an album and some radio worthy singles, then we’d have a debate. But i find it hard for someone to bitch about someone who is on the grind, when you sitting down slurping soup through a straw. Lil’ Kim keep referring to the shit she did in like 1995…okay we get it..you was hot..you went to jail and vanished for like 4-5 years. Where you at now? wheres the album? the single? If youre the queen, why you performing at small ass venues? I dont hate Lil Kim, i just think she keeps harping on this feud to keep herself relevent, instead of doing what a “queen of hip hop” would do…which is release dope tracks.

    MAJAH Reply:

    @Dopeness, PAUSE. Kim released two tracks already. She’s releasing another soon. JUST TO CLEAR THAT. Kim was minding her business for QUITE some time! Nicki decided to make the bullshit bigger by dedicating a few songs on her ALBUM to Kim. Kim said a few smart remarks but she has EVERY right to defend herself. Kim started to tour, MINDED her business, and brought female mc unity back. Not even a MONTH later, there came Nicki flying in talking about history is about to be made with Foxy. ALL these years Nicki took “idolizing” to a WHOLE nother level. Yes, Kim isn’t as relevant anymore but she WAS. It’s ok to take a few things from an artist but to plan to just sweep someone you apparently IDOLIZED off the map is DISRESPECT. Specially if one minute you give credit then diss at the next. That’s why Kim was pissed for all these years and was pissed last night. I don’t blame her either. Nicki disrespected PLENTY of female rappers and now hip-hop heads are disrespecting her. Karma will ALWAYS bite you in the ass. Blogs ARE NOT for people without knowledge. SERIOUSLY.

    [Reply]

    Dopeness Reply:

    @MAJAH, Your right. Kim did release two tracks. My point is…where they at? I can tell you where they are not at…on the charts. They are not selling. Neither party is innocent. Don’t make it out like Kim was just in the operating room working on her face while Nicki was dissing her. Because it was a back and forth mutual thing. Just because Cash Money gave a song you were suppose to be on to Nicki, don’t mean anything. after all you are the “queen” and why does lil kim get credit for EVERYTHING…like shes this great innovative person. She wasnt the first person to wear wigs…and she wasnt the first female rapper to want to incorporate other female rappers. Foxy and Nicki have been cool since day one. So what if she wants to bring her on stage? If nicki takes a shit and wipes her ass with toliet paper, do we give kim credit for that too? Cause we all know KIM WAS THE FIRST FEMCEE TO WIPE HER ASS WITH TOLIET PAPER. She WAS…life doesnt go backwards…it moves forward. yes, the 90′s rap was amazing…but Kim should bring that same FIRE and SAVAGE verses to the present day market. The age thats buying music now…don’t know the old kim…so she needs to reintroduce herself. It is very clear Nicki idolized kim, and she has stated it time and time again, but lets be serious…at this stage in the game you think Nicki really ripping off Kim. lyrically they are nothing alike, the collabos are nothing alike, the sales are nothing alike, the wardrobe and personality is nothing alike. Kim could stay pissed, get over it…move on and make music. At the end of the day thats what it’s about.

    columbiana Reply:

    @Dopeness, Nicki has EVERY right to give Kim credit. For everything? No. Lil Kim didn’t even know about Nicki but Nicki was still dragging her name in the dust and then giving props. That is some fake ass shit. Kim wasn’t the first person to wear wigs but she was the first FEMALE RAPPER to wear COLORFUL wigs. Back when Nicki was broke, almost ALL her bars were able to be compared to Kim’s. Outfits? You seriously need to do research because Nicki has done quite a few just like Kim’s just in a updated style. Nicki’s lies are slowly being revealed and only the one’s with common sense see through her. Until Nicki stops trying to compete against Kim (for example: this female unity stuff) I don’t see why Kim should let it go. If someone was coming for your identity, you wouldn’t either. Nicki and Fox has NOT been down since day one. Were you not aware of the fued against the two in 2007-8,9? Guess not.

Kim is just looking like a sore loser at this point. And at the end of the day, this is nickis job. If the streets arent buying her albums then she has every right to switch things up and get money. Everyone is doing that if you guys haven’t noticed.you need to have your music on hip hop stations as well as alternative stations to sell a lot nowadays. At the end of the day its all about monitary gain. Im not mad, do your thing Nicki!

    @Wave, Not the point. If it were that simple, Lauryn wouldn’t have came with a statement to clear up “misinterpretations.” From Nicki’s tweet, it looked like she was coming out to feature during Nicki’s set. “Technically” she was, but in all actuality, she was going to be apart of what Nas was doing. Which is why Foxy’s bumb ass partied with Nicki, and Lauryn stayed to perform with Nas.

    Lauryn was just saying she wasn’t invited by Nicki..she was invited by Nas.

    Wait, can someone please show me a tweet, text, anything where nicki officially said lauryn hill was her guest please?? Because that was all rumors and speculation! So how did nicki lie when the words “lauryn hill was gonna be my guest” never came out her mouth?? I swear u haters latch on to ANYTHING to get at nicki. Lauryn stood by nicki decision to pull out after the radio station that promoted her to sell tickets dissed her. If Peter dissed lil Kim I’m sure u haters would be boycotting hot 97 right about now.

    Didn’t nobody say she was bringing out Lauryn until Nicki tweeted her name and Nicki sat there and let people assume. But when Lauryn cleared it up, all she could do was go along. Now, these Hot97 people BEEN shading Nicki, so to even agree to perform was HER and her team problem. Another thing, Wayne pulled Nicki out. Nicki didn’t decide on her own. Although she saw the bullshit she was still going to perform. Her tweets clocked that. I take it very random how Nicki’s trying to act like she did it for her. I apparently saw how Nicki and the radio people are. Although, the radio people spoke facts.

    @Moss, You just said Lil Kim stans needed to go back to school, but your grammar is ALL the way fucked up. I don’t see commas, periods (where needed if you don’t use commas or semi-colons), and capital letters where you gave NAMES. Your whole speech would be called a RUN-ON and FRAGMENT. If you worked as hard as you do on her, in school, you would know that. Dumb thing to pick out, but watch what you say because you might look dumb before you even know it. Lauryn Hill was invited by Nas which he was apart of Nicki’s set. Correct? But Nicki tweeted all those names as if she put in work to get all those artist and she didn’t. Nas was apart of Nicki’s set, but he still performed without her. THAT’S where you failed to pay attention. Yes, people failed to realize Lauryn was apart of the set, but Nicki should’ve went into detail. POINT BLANK.

    Nicki probably couldn’t get Lauryn herself, so she used Nas as a third party, as in, “Hey if you invite her, then she’ll come.” That’s why Lauryn said NAS invited her, not Nicki. And obviously Nas didnt need Nicki to perform since HE DID ANYWAY. Nicki manipulated the situation to make it look like SHE brought Lauryn out, which was not the case.

    I think the more interesting news is that Nicki will be on Flex’s radio show tonight. So instead of the Barbz and the KillerBee’s arguing about NOTHING, let’s just wait to see how this plays out tonight. At the end of the day I highly doubt Nicki would lie about that, knowing full well that Lauryn could bring out a receipt at any time to discredit her if she was in fact lying. The fact is all Nicki did was tweet who was going to be a part of her set. NAMES! that’s all. If I have a house party and I invite someone and they in turn bring someone with them, they are still guests in MY home.

    Why are people just assuming that Nas was a guest? He as well as any other artist could have been added to the Summer Jam list, maybe he was gonna come out and perform the song he has with Nicki and that’s it.

    Foxy was Nicki’s guest, and when Nicki pulled out, did Foxy still perform? NO! so i’m pretty sure if Nas and Lauryn were apart of Nicki’s set they wouldn’t have still went on that stage.

    And yes, Lauryn did support Nicki’s decision but she low key made Nicki look like the liar she is. When Nicki tweeted those names her “barbz” started assuming she was gonna bring out Lauryn.

    We all know Nicki would have left people thinking she was gonna bring out Lauryn if Lauryn would have never tweeted that.

    It’s pretty obvious Nas and Lauryn could have cared less if Nicki went out there or not. They did what they had to do and made the public happy.

    how hard is it for yall to understand this basic shit?? nas would come out as a guest on nicks set he was gonna bring out lauryn as his guest they would all be on the same set

    lauryn prolly was not informed that it would be including all three of them but their has yet to be anything out that says nas and lauryn were not gong to be on the set with nicki at all

    And you just showed how STUPID you are, did I not say “He as well as any other artist could have been added to the Summer Jam list”?

    And how does a “Guest” bringing out another “Guest” sound? STUPID!!
    Nas wasn’t a “Guest”, he was apart of the line up.
    Lauryn was a “Guest” but she wasn’t Nicki’s “Guest”. Nas did a whole performance without Nicki being there. IF HE WASN’T ON THAT LINE UP THEN HE WOULD HAVE NOT CAME OUT, HE WOULD HAVE DID THE SAME AS FOXY.

    Yall keep calling him a “Guest” when the only “Guest” Nicki had was those other bottom boys from Young Money.

    And eventho Lauryn was a “Guest” that would mean she was still apart of the show meaning they would have told her if she was gonna be on stage with Nicki.

    Summer Jam is about multiple artist, not just one.

    Eventho Nicki was the headliner doesn’t mean the other artist was her “Guest”.

    and once again if they weren’t to be on the same set why hasn’t their been one coordinator to come out and say other wise including the dj’s and people responsible for the line up

    my whole point is how the fck you gonna call somebody a liar when nobody in charge of putting it together has came out to say lauryn and her wouldn’t be on the same set like she said..shyt you would think you was working backstage

    my whole point is what the fck she got to lie about .pretty sure if nicki would have performed she and lauryn would have been on the same fckin set regardless of the confusion and it ain’t shit you can show that proves otherwise

    @just sayin, You just called that person dumb but spelled “quest” meaning “guest”. OH. At the end of the day Lauryn Hill WAS NOT Nicki’s GUEST. When you are invited somewhere, you are a GUEST. Lauryn just confirmed Nicki DID NOT invite her. Nas was apart of Nicki’s lineup but still performed while she was at her hotel. That really shows how much he cares! Another thing, if everyone on here make you sick, you really shouldn’t waste time running back and forth explaining yourself because obviously you look dumb.

    @1LoveRih, obviously that was a typo idiot.i spelled it right how many other times??so clearly im good with my shit
    - i didn’t say lauryn was nicki guest smart one, i said she didn’t lie about being on the same set. what part of they were gonna be on the same set with nas being the link (something nicki knew prior) dont you get?? got damn

    and they did the performance anyway because they didn’t have a reason not to..nicki was disrespected and told not to..that doesn’t show he doesn’t care.obviously lauryn cared enough to tweet about it tho.you so petty for that and i didn’t say everyone makes me sick just dumbazzes like yall

    not explaining shit just making you look as stupid as you are

    1LoveRih Reply:

    @just sayin, Your grammar is still off the ledge so, calling people dumb, idiot, or stupid isn’t a good look for you. Nicki DID NOT go into detail about her lineup. She tweeted names and let others assume until Lauryn clarified. THAT is why they are calling Nicki a liar. Lauryn didn’t have to clarify if it wasn’t needed so, your pressed ass can kick rocks. Sick, kill, WHO CARES. At the end of the day, if the facts bother you, STOP bringing your ass through the comments.

    @1LoveRih bitch shut up about grammar this is a damn blog im good on my education stance so deflecting from your weak azz point wont stop me from calling you and the poster above stupid.you lacking common sense and reaching for a point really isn’t a good look as well now is it??she tweeted names..what other people assume was on them, at the end of the day she tweeted those names because all of those people were suppose to give one of the biggest surprises of the night along with her (something has now been CONFIRMED by ebro)..she didn’t say lauryn clarified anything so what facts are you talking about??just talking out the azz hoping a point will be made huh??
    people calling her a liar are just as STUPID as you. When you have no facts that lauryn was not gonna be on the set even tho nas was gonna be on nicki set which would include lauryn as well

    exactly what did nicki come out and say that was a lie???

    1LoveRih Reply:

    @just sayin, This is a blog? OH? Your ass keep coming these post to prove a invalid point, but we’re the dumb one’s? OH? Funny! Just like your illiterate ass can call a person stupid VIA WEB, I can address your grammar because that CLEARLY needs help. What you need to pay attention to, are the WORDS Lauryn wrote. Lauryn was CLARIFYING Nicki didn’t INVITE her to be on the set. NAS did. You apparently missed that, but EVERYBODY else stupid, huh? OH! Nicki thought she was SLICK. It took her to explain the situation when Lauryn clarified. Who wouldn’t assume when she said “History is going to be made” then tweeted names? Really? Do you live under a bridge? DON’T do it, boo boo!

    @just sayin, Why do you think Nicki went into detail as soon as Lauryn tweeted that?

    @1LoveRih
    what invalid point?? a point your still to stupid to understand??yes you are the dumb one..lol how many times do i have to say that??cute for you to deflect away from being wrong with talking about grammar on a blog clearly neither I or nicki stated that lauryn was nicki guest..if otherwise please show me where I or nicki said lauryn was going to be her guest??nicki named people that was going to be on her set not once did she say lauryn was her guest but at the same time they were going to be on the same set..nicki mentioned they were going to create history..the exact same words the coordinator used when talking about what was suppose to go down so exactly how did she lie and how was she being slick when she repeated what the coordinator..(yknow the person responsible for the entire summer jam performances) said and when she tweeted out names that were going to be on her set INCLUDING lauryn regardless if she was coming as nas guest or not

    making you look like a azz clown is to easy because you still have failed to prove how nicki lied about anything when everything she said could be confirmed as truth

    cOMEaTmEbRO Reply:

    @just sayin, Nicki knew people were going to call her out on her lies, that’s why she tweeted that.

    and how do you know all 3 were suppose to be on stage together? Lauryn knew nothing about her and Nicki being on that stage together.
    Like i stated before, If Lauryn, Nas, and Nicki were suppose to be on that stage together then they wouldn’t have went on without her.

    Wayne stoped Nicki from going on, but did he stop Foxy? No. Did Foxy still go on without her? No. so what’s your point?

    The only reason Lauryn tweeted that was to clear up those stupid rumors that she was there for Nicki. I’m pretty sure if Lauryn’s name wasn’t in this situation then she wouldn’t give 2 shits about it.

    And what have you explained? Besides the fact that YOU think Nas and Lauryn were her “Guest”? Nothin! You’ve stated the same shit in 2 comments already.

    Just sayin Reply:

    @cOMEaTmEbRO, No she knew you dumb fcks would get easily confused about something so simple that’s why she cleared it up.. Oh and you wanna know how I know they were gonna be on the same set?? Ebro the coordinator of the entire show just CONFIRMED nas was coming as nicki guest.. I can post the interview link just to shut you the fck down for good… They went on with out her because they fckin wanted to.nas was schedule as a CONFIRMED guest of nicki.. Lauryn was confirmed as a guest of nas. Initially nas (the confirmed GUEST) was the link that would have all of them on the set together. everyone she named were set to “make history” that’s out of the coordinator own mouth.. And you don’t know wtf lauryn would have said so why the fck you acting as tho you know what lauryn wouldn’t have done??? Lauryn has walked out her own shows for certain disrespect so it’s obvious she did have strong feeling about what happened to nicki.. If she didn’t care she wouldn’t have even added that part now would she ?? Have a seat. Your done

    Woopsidaisy! Reply:

    @just sayin, Watching you argue throughout 4-5 posts about Nicki is funny as hell. When did Nicki clear things up hun? When Lauryn did like a hour and a half after Nic’s tweet with the names. Am I correct? Yup! You just said Lauryn Hill was Nas guest but to that Rihanna fan you were explaining how Lauryn was apart of Nic’s set. Lauryn Hill never said she wasn’t apart of Nic’s set. All she said was Nic didn’t invite her to be apart of the set she was Nas guest. Hmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!

  33. just sayin

    you dumb broads need to get up on your critical thinking skills. if nicki lied im sure the coordinaters of the show would have been set her straight..including the dj’s that dissed her

    lauryn prolly didnt know exactly how it would go down because she was a guess of nas and not nicki but nas was gonna be on nicki set so that would have to include lauryn as well

    can you airhead brain dead fools comprehend that??

    steady trying to call somebody a liar..lie about what?? lauryn ain’t god..it wouldn’t have been that serious if she did or didn’t perform with nicki. at the end of the day I respect her for speaking up against that wack azz stunt they pulled

    VROOM Reply:

    @just sayin,

    I understand that Lauryn was to be apart of Nas’ thing and Nas was to be apart of Nicki’s set, making both Nas and Lauryn apart of Nicki’s set.

    But consider this…

    Nicki sort of gloated and presented it as if she had personally gotten Lauryn to be apart of her set. Also, both Nas and Lauryn performed without Nicki and Lauryn was still apart of the set she was originally asked to be apart of: “Nas’ set.” This indicated that Nicki and Lauryn really had no interaction or communation about it. Therefore, Lauryn knew exactly how it was going down. She knew she’d perform regardless.

    [Reply]

    just sayin Reply:

    @VROOM, nicki didn’t even come out and say her and lauryn was gonna be on her set until later all she did was drop names randomly..if anything she was more giddy about foxy and nas because those were her original guest, lauryn was just something else that made her excited but she didn’t go in detail about nothing.

    and yes lauryn performed regardless. that doesn’t take away from the fact that if nicki performed as well they would still being on the same set so what did she say that was wrong?

    yall making this more complicated then it need to be

    [Reply]

    VROOM Reply:

    @just sayin,

    Well, I’m just going by what Lauryn said in her statement. She made it very clear that she would not be considered apart of Nicki’s set. She made a clear distinction between being with Nas as opposed to being with Nicki. I just think Lauryn doesn’t know Nicki like that to claim to be apart of her set. What would they have even performed together?

    Plus Nicki has openely expressed her admiration for Lauryn in the past and talked about wanting to work with her, so its no surprise she’d jump the gun a little on such an opportunity.

    [Reply]

    Just sayin Reply:

    @VROOM, How did she jump the gun?? Lauryn basically said she was nas guest not nicki but that doesn’t stop the fact that nas was on nicki set so that would have to include lauryn.. Everything nicki said was confirmed by the coordinator .. She didn’t jump the gun she was informed that nas(her guest) was bringing lauryn so wtf are y’all talking about?

    Aliyah Reply:

    @Just sayin, Lauryn said, HERSELF, she was not INVITED by Nicki. She was by Nas. You see that clearly? She was just saying Nicki DID NOT INVITE her to JOIN HER SET. She didn’t say she wasn’t going to be ON the SET. She was just saying Nicki didn’t INVITE her; it was NAS. You’re making this hard for yourself. READ and GRASP CORRECTLY.

    Jj Reply:

    @Aliyah I swear y’all are half brain dead.. Can you not read??? Clearly I’ve said over and over age was NOT nickis guest she was nas guest and they were gonna be on the same set therefor she didn’t lie about that. got damn stop replying to me if you not even gonna read the shyt first.

    Aliyah Reply:

    @Jj, Jj? I don’t recall replying to a Jj. I like how you’re spreading your bullshit with different names. It’s real cute. Now, do you know you have to be INVITED to be a GUEST? Apparently not!!!! You should consider taking your ass back to school, reading Lauryn’s letter over, and reading your replies on this comment because you are flip flopping. I just covered all the bullshit you started on this WHOLE post and now I’m half brain dead. Take a look back at what you said, bitch. Nicki may have not lied, but she sure let others assume and I bet you, I fucking BET you, if Lauryn didn’t say anything, she wasn’t going to either. Why eat her ass for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack? You still can’t get enough? You don’t have a life, bitch? Do you need to draw one? I just saw my fucks bypass me. Sorry!

  35. MR. HIP HOP ENTHUSIAST

    Why must these so many hip-hop artists continue to rely on cosigners, features, and guest appearances in order to create buzz. Nicki should weigh doing her own thing vs. doing a set with a laundry list of guests. Performing a ‘one woman/man show’ give a certain level of credibility, one that many of these artists should strive for.

    Take Lauryn for example, the only guests ahe might bring out at a show would be the other members of The Fugees and a live band.

    This whole Summer Jam seems all too shitty. No organization, no REAL unity, and an economic boat to carry funds into HOT97′s fat pockets. It has become extremely overrated and should be redesigned for futher dates in the future.

    Rosenberg is killing hip-hop himself. He has no true credibility or clout in the hip-hop culture. Loud talk and feminine gossip hardly qualifies. However, Nicki is spreading herself quite thin these days.

    Advice to Nicki:
    Regroup, tone down the theatrics, and focus on creating a project driven by more than radio buzz. Develop lyrical content and experiment with more organic sounds.

    @MR. HIP HOP ENTHUSIAST, I think she let her emotions get the best of her. YMCMB thought NY was going to riot cause they were not there! Summer jam is an excellent opportunity for ny and nj to see tyga, jay Millz and the other members besides Wayne drake and nikki. Smh I agree also with trying to bring out everybody and their mothers to consign their movement. It sucks!!!!!

  36. Fact

    I swear people comment on Nicki Minaj like its gonna change things. Its not gonna change the fact that Lil Kim is still Queen of Hip Hop. She still holds that title and will always hold that title. How is Nicki gonna come in the game and drop one album and claim to be the new Queen then her second album flops i dont get it. Lil Kim has 1 double platinum album and 2 platinum albums, Nicki has one hit album. That is all

    jj Reply:

    @Fact, shut up with that kim ain’t nobody queen but her fans. missy and lauryn would take that title before you Frankenstein bitch would

    i wish yall would stop acting like kim wasn’t over before nicki hit the scene maybe if the broad was working on her music instead being a jail bird and morphing to another person she would still be relevant.that bitter broad has no one to blame but her self
    save that shyt about what she used to do

    Even Thou Lauryn Hill came out and talk on behalf of Nicki I still believe that Nicki deserve every last word the man had for her … She is a Commercial Rapper which I believe should have been said long before she came out with “Super Bass’ … If you wan to be in the Rap Game You gotta come hard especially to be accepted in the the circle of hip-hop …..
    If Nicki felt offend then she will change for the better .. starting with the way she present herself ….

    — Just to put a little more something in it .. Know i see why Tupac was coming after these New Yorkers .. They always wanna change they style up when the get ” accepted into Hollywood” ….. Smh Tupac was damm sure right !!

    LOL! The comments are hilarious! Well as a faithful Summer Jam goer artists do sets within sets all the time. DJ Khaled does it every time he’s there. MMG did it as well with Mase, so its really not big deal and Lauryn just wanted to clear it up that Nicki was not bringing her out and Nicki confirmed that. But the foolery going on with this situation is ridiculous just give your fans what they want. & I respect Lil Kim but to comment each and every time on Nicki is not making her look good. Put it in a rap song Kim!
